Butt augmentation – candidate for surgery

The main factor that determines if you are going to be a good candidate for the Brazilian butt lift will be your weight and the location of the fat in your body. The Brazilian butt lift is an actual fat transfer to the buttock area.  We need to harvest fat from those stubborn areas like the back, thighs, flanks, abdomen etc.  Typically, I remove  between 6-7 litters of fat and fluid are during this procedure. Out of this amount, approximately 1.5 – 2.0 liters of fat is usable. In other words, the ideal candidate is a female that is size 6 and above in clothing. In addition, the fat needs to be accessible, which means that it should be extra-abdominal fat, not intra-abdominal fat.  Intra-abdominal fat is the fat around the liver and guts. This fat cannot be harvested. Only the fat that you can grab with your hand can be used for the procedure itself.

What if you don’t have enough fat? Then, you will need to gain weight. Usually, a patient that does not have enough fat needs to  gain approximately 15 – 20 lbs before surgery.  This sound great to a lot of patients.

Another option if you do not have enought fat is to use butt implants. I will explain in the next few blogs the benefits of using butt implants.

 Although I have not been able to determine where the actual term Brazilian butt lift originated from, I would like to clarify what the surgical meaning of this procedure implies. Brazilian women are famous for their nice round behind and curvy figure. Let us be honest. What woman would not like to have a nicer behind? A nicer buttock makes the female figure look sexier and more attractive. The Brazilian butt lift is equivalent to butt augmentation. In this procedure,  areas with excess fat like the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms, lower and upper back are sculpted. The fat that is removed is processed and re-injected or grafted  into the buttock area. This procedure is a total body sculpting procedure through which, not only the shape of the buttock is made nicer but the actual proportions of the hip to waist ratio are improved. This transformation creates, not only a nicer looking butt, but also a sexier figure. The “butt lift” is an actual misnomer.

When we think about lifting an area of the body, we immediately think about long scars to reposition the butt to make it look more youthful. In this procedure, small incisions are done, not only to remove the fat with liposuction, but also to re-inject the fat into the buttock area. The butt is actually lifted to some extent by increasing its volume with fat injection. Think about the butt like a deflated balloon. When you inject air, it gets bigger and firmer and its overall shape is “lifted”. Not everybody is a candidate for this procedure though. This will be discussed in another occasion. Hopefully, this information will give you a better understanding of what this procedure consists of, and it is meant to clarify a confusing term that does not accurately describes what the procedure is about.
