Have you thought about getting a Brazilian Butt Lift – but not sure if you’re a good candidate for the procedure?

To answer that question, let’s begin by taking a closer look at the Brazilian Butt Lift. This innovative procedure was created in part because, in popular culture, there has been a rise in the popularity of ample backsides. It seems like wherever you turned, you couldn’t get away from movies, music videos, and songs praising curvy buttocks. But for people who didn’t have a round backside, it seemed like the only option was to undergo a buttock augmentation procedure with silicone implants.

The Brazilian Butt Lift is different from the traditional buttock augmentation procedure because it uses the patient’s own fat to produce the desired results.

Here’s how it works:

  • Fat is harvested from the patient’s abdomen, inner, or outer thighs
  • Fat is cleansed and prepared for injection
  • Fat is injected into the buttocks region to achieve shapely volume.

The procedure is straightforward with little risk to the patient because the patient’s own body fat is used and rejection is unlikely. Recovery takes about a week, and patients will be able to see final results once swelling goes down (usually within a few months).

So how can you tell if you’re a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

  • You’re a healthy non-smoker who’s over the age of 21
  • You have realistic expectations for the procedure
  • You have enough fat that can be harvested for the injection procedure.
