Perhaps the most exciting field of cosmetic surgery involves the new capabilities for body sculpting. You may be working hard to achieve the results you’re after through diet and exercise, only to be stymied by Mother Nature and genetics, a one-two punch that features different ideas about body shape than you have. Now, you have control over these previously random conditions, making the look of your body something that you can choose.
The Brazilian butt lift is one such procedure that offers dramatic and immediate body sculpting results that are natural and specific to you — and it’s not all about your butt, despite the name. Whether on its own or combined with other procedures, the Brazilian butt lift makes an impact beyond your buttocks. Truth is, a Brazilian butt lift has a wide range of benefits that may surprise you. Let’s have a look.
With a name like Brazilian butt lift, obviously your buttocks are the focus. For patients of reasonable fitness in their 20s and 30s, the procedure can be more about enhancement, augmenting the appearance that nature gave you, promoting a full and alluring derriere.
Older patients may be fighting the results of aging, including sagging, loss of firmness, or the advanced appearance of cellulite. The augmentation offered through a Brazilian butt lift is ideal for restoring a more youthful appearance. This is rejuvenation through augmentation.
If you’ve experienced a major weight loss, the Brazilian butt lift may be an important part of your post-weight loss cosmetic package, a reshaping to reflect your significantly lower body weight.
Beyond the bottom focus, understand that the Brazilian butt lift uses fat transfer to achieve its results. The fat that augments your bottom must come from somewhere. If you’ve struggled with stores of fat that resist all diet and exercise efforts, you have an ideal harvest point waiting to donate to your behind. Talk about two birds with one stone.
The fat removed from, say, your belly or love handles reduces their appearance, improving your profile while enhancing the look of your buttocks. While you won’t have any appreciable change in body weight, the redistribution often gives the appearance of weight loss, as your body lines change in places other than your bottom.
Buttock implants have a narrow range of shapes and sizes; your results look similar to another patient who has the same implant. The Brazilian butt lift, on the other hand, is completely personal and customizable. It can be altered to suit the rest of your body and, to a degree, your taste in appearance. While we must build upon what nature gave you, a wide range of results is possible.
Though technically a surgery, the Brazilian butt lift is minimally invasive and there’s no need to plan for aggressive scars. Surgical risks are minimized, and recovery time is a fraction of many other cosmetic surgery procedures. The technique breaks down into two phases: fat removal and augmentation injections.
