What is a Brazilian Buttlift/ Buttock Augmentation?

A Brazilian butt lift is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. Without using implants, the buttocks are augmented to achieve a natural look. This particular treatment for augmentation is designed to be undetectable.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is performed by a trained professional cosmetic surgeon. By transferring fat from one area of the body to the buttocks, flesh can become rounder and fuller in shape. Because the fat is transferred from one part of the body to another, implants are not needed in this type of surgery.

Generally excess fat is taken from areas such as the hips, stomach and thighs. Fat can also be removed from the lower back. By using liposuction, those that have a Brazilian butt lift are essentially having two treatments. One treatment removes fat. The other shapes and contours the buttocks.

Augmenting body proportions can be done successfully with the right doctor. By scheduling an consultation, the patient and surgeon can discuss which areas are problematic and which areas work best for liposuction.

Why Do People Get Brazilian Butt Lifts?

Brazilian butt lifts are a cosmetic surgery designed to reproportion the body. This is mainly done for appearance and esteem. Depending on a variety of factors, the buttocks can be flattened or disproportional to the rest of one’s body. Generally this is due to genetics. Regardless of exercise techniques and diet, the buttocks can be especially difficult to reshape without cosmetic surgery.

Most people who get a Brazilian butt lift want to look natural. This type of surgery does not use implants and although noticeable, is much more subtle than other types of plastic surgery. To enhance curves while simultaneously reducing certain sections of fat, this type of cosmetic surgery is successful in providing a new body shape in a natural way.

Brazilian butt lifts can help clothing fit in a way that’s more flattering. They can augment body shape so that the patient is simultaneously thinner in certain areas while fuller throughout the buttocks. For those who want a more youthful appearance, this is a popular treatment.

Who Can Get A Brazilian Butt Lift?

Many people qualify for a Brazilian butt lift. Typically those who are average or slightly overweight do best with this type of cosmetic surgery. Bodies that are underweight may be difficult to work with as there are few fat deposits to transfer. Those who are thin can still qualify for a Brazilian butt lift, but they must have some sort of fat to be able to transfer from one part of the body to the buttocks.

Brazilian butt lifts are not restricted to a certain race. The patients who opt for a butt lift greatly vary in age and ethnicity. The main qualification for this cosmetic surgery is weight. To better understand if you meet the requirements, scheduling an appointment can help.
