3 Can’t Miss Facts About a Brazilian Butt Lift

It would seem the backside has it. According to The American Society of Plastic Surgery’s yearly statistics, all forms of buttock enhancement continue to skyrocket in popularity. The Brazilian Butt Lift, which augments the buttock through fat grafting, saw a one year increase of 28 percent. Likewise, traditional butt lift surgery using an implant, saw a 36 percent increase over 2014. Highlighting the growing trend for a more bodacious backside, the buttock lift has seen a 252 percent increase since the year 2000.

If you still uncertain to what exactly a Brazilian Butt Lift is, read on.  Here, we explore three important facts about the Brazilian Butt Lift.

Fact 1: A Brazilian Butt Lift Does Not Use an Implant

Many people assume that a buttock lift requires the use of an implant. This is not the case with a Brazilian Butt Lift. Instead of an implant, fat is taken from elsewhere on the body is implanted to round out and shape the derriere.  There are times when both procedures can be used, but they are very different.

Fact 2: A Brazilian Butt Lift Utilizes Fat Grafting

What exactly is fat grafting? Fat grafting uses fat from a more generous donor site to enhance another, more-lacking area. Using liposuction, fat is first removed. Common donor areas include the stomach, love handles (flanks), and thighs. Once extracted, the fat is then cleaned and processed before it is re-injected back into the desired area. Fat can be moved to the face, breasts, and in the case of a Brazilian Butt Lift, to the buttocks.

Fact 3: Brazilian Butt Lift Is Achieves Natural Results

Using your own fat is beneficial in three ways. First, as it uses your own fat, there is no chance of your body rejecting a foreign substance. Second, as a Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat taken from elsewhere on your body, your figure is further enhanced by the addition of liposuction. Last, but certainly not least, you are able to achieve a shapelier backside that looks and feels real.
