Everyone stores fat differently. In an ideal world, fat would navigate to areas that make you more proportioned, giving you a flat stomach and round buttocks for an hourglass figure. However, due to genetics and your skeletal structure, you may have a rounder stomach and flatter buttocks.
Premier Liposuction in Las Vegas, NV, offers Brazilian butt lift surgery to transfer fat from targeted areas of the body and place those cells in the buttocks, creating a curvier shape.
In the past, butt augmentations used implants to lift and add shapely volume to the area. These days, many patients opt for a Brazilian butt lift to contour more areas in one procedure.
Popularity of Brazilian butt lifts has risen dramatically over the last few years. A survey by the International Society of Plastic Surgery shows the number of procedures increasing by over 77% since 2015.
So why are so many people choosing Brazilian butt lifts? The benefits are undeniable.
How Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Work?
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery begins with liposuction to remove fat from donor areas that have excesses, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, or lower back. We then process the fat to purify it and carefully inject it into the buttocks.
Why Choose a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Why has BBL surgery become the preferred option for butt augmentation over implants? Here are some of its most significant benefits.
Better Overall Proportions
Most patients seek a butt lift to improve their overall figure. While the main focus of BBL surgery is to enhance the shape of your butt, the liposuction portion allows patients to also sculpt areas that stubbornly retain fat.
BBL surgery helps patients reshape their bodies. For example, a patient who chooses to remove fat from their abdomen and love handles and inject it into the buttocks may achieve an hourglass figure previously unattainable for their body type.
After a butt lift or augmentation using implants, it’s relatively common to see the outline of the implant through the skin. However, unnatural shaping is not a significant concern for Brazilian butt lifts. Since the procedure uses the same substance that naturally gives the buttocks their fullness — fat — the results look and feel realistic.
Cellulite affects as many as 80% to 90% of adult women. For many patients who choose BBL surgery, the added volume reduces the appearance of cellulite and dimples. Additionally, as the butt rounds out after the procedure, cellulite on the thighs may become less apparent.
After your BBL surgery, you’ll see fast results, especially in the projection of your buttocks and your hip size. However, it does take some time to see the full effects.
As swelling subsides and the new fat adheres to its transfer site, you’ll begin to experience your final results. These could take six months or longer to develop completely.
Many form-fitting dresses, cheeky bathing suits, and bold cutouts in clothing play up the traditional hourglass figure that your genetics may not naturally provide.
After BBL surgery, you can expect curve-hugging dresses to cling to all the right places, allowing you to feel better in your clothes than ever before.
Natural Butt Augmentation
Considering the procedure’s safety is critical when examining your options for a butt lift. BBL surgery should be performed only by skilled, experienced plastic surgeons.
Unlike implants, a BBL does not introduce foreign substances into your body. It uses your own fat tissue to boost your figure, making it a natural cosmetic procedure.
One of the reasons patients choose a Brazilian butt lift over a butt augmentation with implants is for long-term results.
Butt implants typically last around ten years and must be replaced. In contrast, if you carefully follow our guidelines after your BBL surgery, you can expect your fat transfer to restore shape to your buttocks indefinitely.
Unlike implants with a set shape and size, BBL surgery allows us to transfer your fat into precise locations to deliver symmetrical, formed buttocks with the optimal curvature and projection to suit your body type and help you achieve your desired overall figure.
What Do the Best Brazilian Butt Lift Candidates Have in Common?
Most patients looking to improve the shape and size of their buttocks are candidates for BBL surgery. However, some patients will see better results from the procedure. Patients who are the happiest with the outcome of their butt lift are those who have the following in common:
- Are seeking butt augmentation without implants
- Are near their ideal body weight, with a BMI of 30 or lower
- Have excess fat in areas to extract and transfer
- Possess good skin elasticity
- Are in good overall health
Patients who undergo a Brazilian butt lift must avoid sitting or lying on their buttocks for the first few weeks after their procedure. If you sit down too soon, you can negatively impact blood flow to the transferred fat cells, damaging them and causing the surgery to be less effective.
Committing to following these instructions is critical to qualifying as a good candidate for a butt augmentation.
