Are You a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you have been concerned that your butt is looking droopy or flat or simply not as full and rounded as you would like, a Brazilian Butt Lift could be right for you.

A number of different methods for enhancing the size and contours of the butt are available for use by the plastic surgeon and a butt lift can be customized to meet the needs of the individual. Not all patients have the same problem they’re trying to solve or the same ultimate appearance in mind.

What makes someone a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift rather than other kinds of butt lift and augmentation surgery?

You are a great candidate for this procedure if:

  • Due to genetics or the encroachment of time and age, your butt is lacking the fullness, sexiness, size and shape you desire.
  • You are in good general health (a butt lift is surgery and you must be able to tolerate the anesthesia and be in a condition to heal well).
  • You are realistic in your expectations from the surgery.
  • You can abstain from smoking (if you smoke) and drinking for the time period specified by your plastic surgeon.
  • You feel your butt is lacking in volume and you are looking for a more rounded, shapelier buttocks.
  • You don’t have excess sagging skin in the region of your buttocks. If you do, you may need to have an extra surgery to remove this before getting your Brazilian Butt Lift (also called Brazilian Fat Transfer).
  • You have tried in other ways, such as with diet and exercise, to get the fuller shapelier look and have not had the success you were hoping for.
  • You have the correct general body type for this procedure. Your plastic surgeon can go over this with you in consultation.
  • You have extra fat elsewhere in your body. A key to the success of a Brazilian Butt Lift is in the availability of fat to transfer from one area of the body to the buttocks area. The surgeon removes fat from these fatty deposits with liposuction. The fat is then purified and injected into the buttock area during your butt lift. Since the fat is processed and purified, your doctor will typically need between three and four times the amount of fat that later appear as your new butt. These fat deposits which become the “donor” areas are usually found in places like the abdomen, upper back, around the sides (love handles) and the hips.

If you are a thin person who has no or few excess fat deposits, you may need to gain weight before your procedure or consider an alternative.

Those are the basic factors you and your plastic surgeon will consider when looking at the prospect of getting a Brazilian Butt Lift.

This butt lift surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. If you are looking for a nice lift, added fullness and youthful contour to your buttocks talk to your plastic surgeon about this procedure. Between the two of you, you will be able to decide if this is the best buttock enhancing procedure for you.
