With the number of cosmetic treatments and surgeries on the market today, it can be difficult to focus on what is important. For example, those interested in procedures for the glutes may have heard of a Brazilian butt lift. But what exactly is the procedure, and are there other similar procedures for the glutes? Are there any specific benefits to the procedure? Dustin C. Derrick, MD is the lead plastic surgeon at Cosmetic Surgery of DFW for Mommy Makeovers in Fort Worth TX and is here to answer your questions about a Brazilian butt lift.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
This procedure combines liposuction and a fat transfer. First, fat is removed from one part of the body using liposuction. Next, the fat is processed to isolate the fat cells and ensure that they survive. Finally, these fat cells are transferred into the backside, allowing the surgeon to shape and sculpt the glutes to the desired shape.
Who Can Benefit from a Butt Lift?
If someone feels a lack of confidence due to sagging or the appearance of their butt, a butt lift can help. This procedure can be effective for many different body types. Also, Brazilian butt lifts can address shape as well as volume. Our surgeon will address any concerns and determine if the procedure is appropriate for the client during a consultation.
What is the Advantage of a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The biggest advantage of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that it uses the body’s own tissues rather than an implant. This prevents any problems with rejection or other reactions of the body to the implanted material. Also, the transferred fat can be placed in different areas, allowing a sculpting effect rather than simply an implant being placed in the butt to add size. Since the fat is removed using liposuction, the area of the body donating fat can be sculpted as well. Also, since it uses the body’s own cells, the effect feels natural. There is no sensation of an implant in one’s glutes.
Where Can I Get a Brazilian Butt Lift?
One of the most important factors of any surgical procedure is the skill and experience of the surgeon.
