The well-endowed backside has become a coveted feature for many women today, thanks to celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian flaunting their curvy derrieres to the world. A relatively new technique offers women the additional fullness they want in their buttocks without the use of synthetic implants. Often referred to as the Brazilian butt lift or buttock reshaping, this procedure has become a popular way to enhance the body contour.
The Brazilian butt lift is actually two procedures combined into one. First, liposuction is used to remove excess pockets of fat from areas in the lower abdomen, hips and thighs. These areas typically do not respond well to diet and exercise and often exist even if you have achieved and maintained a healthy weight.
Using tiny incisions and a narrow tube called a cannula, fat cells are gently suctioned out of the body. The result is a smoother, leaner contour in the treatment area that will last as long as a healthy diet and exercise program is maintained. The fat suctioning is the first step in re-contouring the buttock to produce the desired shape and appearance.
Fat removed during liposuction is then purified and prepared to inject into other areas of the buttock, creating even more dramatic changes to the buttock contour. In the case of a Brazilian butt lift, fat is injected into various areas of the buttocks to create a fuller, rounder backside. The buttocks achieve a new contour without implants or incisions that leave residual scarring.
Fat transfer is a minimally-invasive procedure that can be compared to other injectable treatments like dermal fillers. However, fat tends to last much longer than more dermal filler formulations, leading to long-lasting results without worry of an allergic reaction or the need for touch-up procedures. By placing the fat in different areas of the buttocks, we can achieve natural results that give you the more shapely backside you have always wanted.
A Brazilian butt lift may be recommended for any patient that has sufficient fat tissue in one area to transfer to the buttocks. Many women complain of their buttocks being flat, selective liposuction and targeted fat transfer can give patients the buttock shape they have always desired. Patients should be in relatively good health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. Since liposuction is not used as a weight loss strategy, patients should achieve a healthy weight before undergoing the procedure.
The Brazilian butt lift/buttock reshaping is a relatively safe, effective way to enhance your entire body contour. To learn more about this procedure, contact Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery at 319-800-6877 to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Andrews today.
