All Rise for the Brazilian Butt Lift!

Liposuction and Botox reigned supreme in 2013 as the most frequently performed surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures respectively. Yet, did you know which surgical cosmetic procedure had the largest gains in 2013 from that of the previous year? It’s the Brazilian butt lift! Plastic surgeons all over the country have noticed that more women are now keen in enhancing the appearance of their backsides.

The 58 percent increase in the number of Brazilian butt lifts performed in 2013 from that of last year is not really a surprise for us here at our Tarzana body contouring surgery practice. The appearance of celebrities with well-endowed derriere such as Kim Kardashian, NIcki Minaj, and Beyonce in 2013 may have fueled such increase in the demand for the procedure.

No Squats or Lunges Required!

While squats and lunges have always been considered to help give your derriere a lift, these exercises can only tone the muscles in your buttocks but cannot actually improve its size. There is where the Brazilian butt lift comes into the picture!

By and large, the procedure entails fat transfer to your buttocks. One of the advantages of the Brazilian butt lift is you are actually using your own fat to help improve the size and shape of your behind. Excess fat from your arms, abdomen, back, hips, or thighs will be harvested via liposuction and will be processed before it is reinjected into your buttocks. Thus, it is important for you to have a bit of excess fat in other areas of the body before having the buttock-enhancement procedure.

If you wish to improve the appearance of your butt yet you don’t have enough excess fat to qualify for a Brazilian butt lift, having buttock implants may be your best bet. On the other hand, a butt lift may be all you need if you only want to eliminate sagging but is already content with the size of your buttocks.

It’s Not Just for Women

If you think that the Brazilian butt lift is only for women, this New York Times article may make you think otherwise. It talked about how a male construction company owner opted for a Brazilian butt lift because he simply wanted “to be able to put on a pair of pants and for them to stay up.”
