Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

brazilian butt lift locateadocThe Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular plastic surgery procedure among many who wish to enhance the appearance of their buttocks. Doctors transplant fat from one part of the body to the other. The fat is removed from an undesired area then transplanted to enhance the appearance of the buttocks. In after pictures you will notice a more contoured body since a well-trained cosmetic surgeon will remove fat to improve the body’s overall appearance as well as add mass to the bottom.

Honolulu, HI plastic surgeon Dr. Larry Schleslinger, MD explains how the Brazilian Butt Lift is performed:

Larry Schlesinger, MD Photo -“I start the procedure by administering liposuction to harvest the fat cells that will be used to improve the appeal of the buttocks. The liposuction is traditional liposuction and will therefore provide an aesthetic improvement to this area as well. The harvested fat cells will be treated to ensure they are healthy and safe before inserting them into the buttocks. I'll then strategically inject the fat cells in small amounts to many places on the buttocks to provide the best aesthetic possible. Expertly injected fat cells are crucial for the success of a Brazilian Butt Lift."

Am I a Good Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

  • Must want to add volume to backside. If you want to remove excess tissue from the rear a traditional butt lift is a better option.
