It’s quite common for women to visit us here at our practice and ask about their cosmetic options on how to enhance the appearance of their behinds ala Kim Kardashian. In fact, the demand for buttock enhancement procedures have soared last year According to this NBC news article, plastic surgeons all over the country are now performing more Brazilian butt lifts in 2013 than in 2012. So what exactly is involved in a Brazilian butt lift? Find out below!
Fear Not the Fat
Fat has always been considered undesirable for the past decades. However, recent advancements and discoveries in cosmetic surgery have made it possible for fat to be actually beneficial. In a Brazilian butt lift procedure, your own fat is used to enhance the shape and size of your buttocks. Fat may be harvested from your abdomen, back, flanks or thighs through a cannula and consequently purified. Once it has completely undergone the purification process, it is reinjected into the buttocks.
Generally, the rising trend of fat transfer to the buttocks can be attributed to the following advantages of the procedure:
- Fat transfer to the buttocks improves your waist-to-hip ratio. Typically, fat is harvested in the waist area resulting to a thinner waist yet enhanced size and shape of your buttocks.
- Fat transfer reduces the risk of undesirable body reaction to the surgery because you are actually using your own fat cells. In addition, there is no risk of implant rupture.
- A Brazilian butt lift is less invasive than the traditional use of butt implants. Thus, it has the advantage of less scarring.
