Recent statistics reveal that Brazilian butt lift continues to rise in popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the procedure grew 10 percent from 2016 to 2017.
What’s behind this increase? In this blog post, San Antonio plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Young discusses some of the reasons why Brazilian butt lift has become so popular.
Let’s take a look at what Brazilian butt lift achieves. The procedure involves removing unwanted fat from one body area (such as the abdomen, thighs or back) and injecting it into the buttocks to create a fuller appearance. The surplus fat is removed using liposuction techniques and then purified and prepared for reinjection. The plastic surgeon injects that fat strategically into specific areas of the buttocks, mostly focusing on the upper quadrant of the buttocks for a curvaceous and lifted effect.
Why Patients Are Seeking Brazilian Butt Lift
Safer and less invasive than traditional butt lift. Many patients are more comfortable with the idea of enhancing their buttocks with their own fat rather than an implant. In rare cases, patients can develop an allergic reaction to implants. What’s more, Brazilian butt lift requires fewer incisions, which minimizes some of the risks associated with traditional butt implant procedures.
Natural-looking results. With Brazilian butt lift, patients do not need to worry whether their results will look fake or unnatural. This is because only their own fat and tissue will be injected into the buttocks to create beautiful, natural-looking curves.
A more sculpted figure. Brazilian butt lift can be seen as a two-in-one procedure because it improves the shape and size of the buttocks while simultaneously slimming down the body area from which the donor fat was taken. The result is a more aesthetically pleasing overall figure.
