BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT
WHY HAVE A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT
The shape and proportion of your buttocks are largely influenced by genetics and other factors such as aging. While diet and exercising can help you get a well-toned shape, many people are still unhappy with a flat, square, or sagging derriere. Brazilian butt lift aims to overcome the effects of genetics, weight, loss, and aging by reshaping your buttocks and the surrounding lower body areas.
This procedure is great if you want to:
- Enhance the curviness of your lower body
- Fit your jeans and other clothing more attractively
- Reduce fat in your love handles, belly, or thighs while at the same time adding to the fullness of your buttocks
- Improve the shape of flat or deflated appearing buttocks
- Improve your proportions by enhancing the balance between your lower and upper body
Ideal Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift is an ideal option for anyone who is looking to enhance the shape and size of their butt. However, certain individuals are better suited for this cosmetic procedure. You are probably a good candidate for Brazilian butt lift if you:
- Want a butt augmentation without using implants
- Have a good skin tone especially in the buttocks and hip areas
- Have adequate stores of fat in other areas
- Are willing to stop sitting on your buttocks for a couple of weeks.
It is also important that you have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the surgery, as well as the recovery process. Keep in mind that the Brazilian butt lift is not the same as a traditional ‘lift’ procedure. Thus, it will not address any loose skin on your buttocks. During the initial consultation, Dr. LaBarbera will examine you and let you know whether you are an ideal candidate for this procedure. This initial visit is also a great opportunity for you to ask all the questions you may have about the procedure, and let your expectations known to the surgeon.
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT VS BUTT LIFT
The Brazilian butt lift uses natural fat to give your butt a fuller, more sculpted look. On the other hand, a traditional buttock lift involves excision of skin and fat from the upper portion of the butt with or without the addition of buttock implants.
One major advantage of the Brazilian butt lift procedure is that it enhances buttock size and shape without the use of implants. When performed by a highly experienced surgeon such as Dr. LaBarbera, this surgery has a very low risk of complications and can accomplish spectacular results.
Patients who are very lean may not have adequate fat stores to receive a Brazilian butt lift. For these, the traditional butt lift (using implants) might be the only option. Buttock implants may be a great approach for some people. However, there are added risks involved (e.g. increased risk for infection and capsular contracture). Buttock implants may also feel and look less natural when compared to the results of a correctly performed Brazilian butt lift surgery.
