Brazilian Butt Lift: Who Is a Good Candidate? By The Landings Surgical Centre on March 14, 2018

A woman's shapely rumpHaving a round and shapely backside is a great way to enhance your natural curves and contours. So much of your figure and appearance is defined by genetics, however, making such aesthetic goals difficult. Thanks to the Brazilian butt lift, you can now enhance the shapeliness of your butt with natural results.

The team at our Halifax, NS plastic surgery centre would like to consider some of the basics when it comes to the Brazilian butt lift. We’ll then note who makes an ideal candidate for the surgery.

How a Brazilian Butt Lift Works

A Brazilian butt lift uses the latest in fat transfer techniques to enhance a person’s curves. Liposuction is used to harvest fat from another part of the body, usually the abdominal area. This fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks in order to increase size and improve overall shape.

In essence, the Brazilian butt lift offers two benefits: it helps you get rid of unwanted fat in one part of the body while improving the appearance of another part of the body.

General Candidacy for Brazilian Butt Lift

Good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift are people who have a flat backside, or perhaps a butt that is not as shapely as they’d wish. These candidates should be in good overall health and not suffer from any medical problems that would make a fat transfer procedure a risk to general wellness.

Idea Age Range for Brazilian Butt Lift Patients

Ideally, candidates for Brazilian butt lift surgery should be in their 20s or older. Performing a Brazilian butt lift before a person’s 20s is usually not ideal since the patient is still maturing. Rather than risk body contour problems when a very young patient is not fully grown, a plastic surgeon will wait until the patient is older.

A Little Bit of Body Fat for Transfer

For a Brazilian butt lift to be effective, the patient must have some unwanted body fat that can be removed and transferred. If a patient is very thin or lacks sufficient body fat for the procedure, the Brazilian butt lift may not be a good idea and an alternative will be suggested. Usually the fat is removed from the abdominal region for the best results; a little fat removal from the back and flanks combined with a Brazilian butt lift can significantly enhance a patient's curves.

Understanding the Risks and Benefits

All surgeries involve risks and benefits that patients need to be aware of and take seriously. If you are not aware of the risks and benefits of a procedure, this could lead to problems with pre-op preparation and post-op recovery.

Realistic Expectations About the Procedure

Having realistic expectations about your surgery is a key part of patient satisfaction. Having a measured idea of what the Brazilian butt lift can achieve will contribute to your overall sense of satisfaction when the surgery is completed.
