The influence of celebrities and other public figures has put a lot of focus on the butt in past years, so it’s no wonder that butt augmentation is in high demand. Fortunately, you have some options for achieving the butt you want, and the Brazilian butt lift is quickly becoming the most popular choice.

Advantages of a Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is a minimally invasive procedure, meaning it doesn’t come with the extended recovery of many surgical procedures. Silicone implants are not required, and the procedure allows for more precise control over the amount and type of butt enhancement. Another reason that more people are opting for the Brazilian butt lift is that they prefer using their own fat rather than introducing a synthetic product into their bodies.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

The Brazilian butt lift works through a process known as fat grafting. This involves transferring fat from one area of the body to an area that can benefit from extra volume and shape. Dr. Wallach uses advanced liposuction techniques for fat grafting where he uses liposuction to remove a small amount from your thigh, hip, back, or abdomen. This provides the benefits of contouring areas where you have stubborn fat and would like more definition. The fat is purified and injected into several areas of the buttocks to sculpt areas where you need additional volume.

After Your Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure

You will have some inflammation after the injections, and you may need to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks for the first few days. You can rest at home and use a donut cushion. After the swelling subsides, Dr. Wallach will meet with you for a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing and assess the results of the Brazilian butt lift. He may recommend some additional injections later on to refine your results.

Is a Brazilian Butt Lift for Everyone?

Most people are good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift to enhance their buttocks, but the procedure is not ideal for everyone. Specifically, you’ll have to have enough fat to be transferred to the buttocks and be in good enough health to undergo a minimally-invasive procedure. You should be at or near your ideal weight and have healthy habits in place so you don’t reverse your results with weight fluctuation.
