What's the difference between a Brazilian butt lift and traditional butt augmentation?
In a Brazilian butt lift, now the preferred technique for contouring this area of the body, the shape is enhanced using fat taken from another part of the body. Traditional augmentation techniques often included the use of silicone buttock implants. Fat is preferred because it creates a far more natural look and feel, and it allows for much more customization based on each patient's shape.
How much fat is needed for a Brazilian butt lift?
The specific answer depends on the patient's aesthetic goals. Because the fat is purified after it's removed and not all of the fat injected into the buttocks will survive, the supply of fat necessary is much greater than what is ultimately used in the procedure.
Where will my scars be located?
Hernia repair surgery is an extremely safe, common surgery that's performed thousands of times annually. The main risks associated with the procedure are similar to those of other surgeries and can include infection, reaction to anesthesia, and nerve damage. These risks are minimized when the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon.
What if I don't have enough fat to get the results I want?
That situation is relatively common, particularly among patients who exercise often to stay fit. In some cases, we actually advise patients to gain a bit of weight so that enough fat is available for buttock augmentation. We can assess your needs at a consultation.
What does a Brazilian butt lift cost?
As with all cosmetic surgery procedures, several factors influence the final price of a Brazilian butt lift. The extensiveness of the surgery is the major deciding factor for most of our patients. Cost is always a consideration when selecting a surgeon, but it shouldn't be the primary reason for your choice.
