Achieving an hourglass figure and a larger backside is the latest perception of beauty today. However, plastic surgery is an individualized service. When provided by our experienced surgeon, Dr. Afifi, we focus on how to best serve your overall needs effectively. Our practice offers Brazilian butt lifts for patients seeking a specific type of beautiful bodily shape. If you are considering this procedure, you should know exactly what this procedure is and maybe it’ll help you determine if it will achieve the aesthetics you desire.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Although there is lift in the procedure name, a Brazilian Butt Lift is not like a regular body lift treatment.
A Brazilian butt lift is a transfer of fat to the buttocks, raising it and giving it more volume. In contrast, a body lift traditionally removes excess skin and fat to create smoother skin and better proportioned contours, such as with a thigh lift. If the specific look you desire is one of a rounder, fuller bottom, a Brazilian Butt Lift is a recommended procedure for you. Body lifts are great options for patients with extra skin from previous weight loss, baby weight skin that didn’t revert, or due to age.
Dr. Afifi offers both procedures. She discusses with you which would best achieve your physical aesthetic goals.
Why is It Called a Lift?
The “lift” in Brazilian butt lift refers to the fact that the behind looks like they are higher up than before the bodily fat was added. The elements of treatment involved in a standard lift procedure are absent from this course of care, although they do help prevent the appearance of sagging. The technical name for a Brazilian butt lift is a “butt fat transfer,” as the fat is not eliminated but merely transferred to the behind.
Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift
This specific procedure is perfect for patients who have:
- tried to augment the shape of their butt through exercise and nutrition, but couldn’t.
- have lost significant amount of weight and wish to add volume to the area that has become loose and flat.
- have a scheduled liposuction procedure and what to do more with the excess fat.
