Butt augmentation using the Brazilian Butt Lift technique has gained international popularity and acclaim for its ability to enhance the size, shape, and firmness of the derrière. Women of all ages are desiring fuller, shapelier backsides to improve their feminine curves and allow them to “fill out” dresses, shorts, and bikinis. The Brazilian Butt Lift differs from other butt augmentation techniques in that it utilizes fat grafting. During this procedure, Dr. Schlechter harvests the patient’s fat using liposuction, purifies it, and then strategically injects it to augment the shape and size of the buttocks. This procedure comes with multiple benefits: you can achieve your desired enhanced backside, and you can remove unwanted excess fat from troublesome areas such as this abdomen, hips, and thighs. Who doesn’t want that? With all of these benefits, you may be wondering if you are a candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Do You Desire an Enhance Backside?
If you are at least 18 years old and unhappy with the flat, flabby, or drooping appearance of your buttocks, then you may be an ideal candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift. The Brazilian Butt Lift not only positively affects your backside, but it contributes to your overall shape, as it usually highlights and narrows the appearance of your waist to give you a curvier, more womanly physique.
Do You Have an Adequate Amount of Fat to Harvest?
Since the Brazilian Butt Lift uses harvested fat instead of implants to augment the buttocks, you need to have enough fat in other areas of your body that can be used. Fat may be harvested from the abdomen, hips, lower back, or thighs (or a combination of these areas). Since your body will absorb some of the fat inserted into your buttocks, the initial amount of fat added will be greater than your final result will show.
Are You in Good Health?
For ideal results, this procedure recommends that you are no more than 30 pounds overweight and are in good general health. Therefore, you should be at or near your ideal weight. Additionally, you should not smoke or have any serious medical concerns. Good candidates are dedicated to maintaining their results through a healthy diet and regular exercise program.
Are Your Expectations Realistic?
Ideal candidates have realistic expectations of their results. While patients often come in with a photo of a celebrity they wish to resemble, it’s important to understand that exact copies of a specific body part are not always possible. Cosmetic surgery of any kind, including the Brazilian Butt Lift, is intended to enhance what you already have, not alter who you are.
