At Personique in Austin, our plastic surgeons have been performing body-sculpting procedures such as the Brazilian Butt Lift for many years and have extensive experience with contouring the human figure with beautiful results. A shapelier derriere is one of the more common body-contouring requests that we get here at our clinic.
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is designed to create an attractive hourglass figure and enhance feminine curves. Butt augmentation is an effective way to improve the shape of the buttocks region. This is achieved through increasing the size, enhancing contour, correcting imbalances and improving firmness. The result is a more youthful-looking backside and slimmer waistline.
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure uses your own body fat to augment the size and shape of the butt. Candidates for this surgery include patients who are not proportionately shaped and those that have a small derriere with excess fat in other areas of the body.
Natural butt augmentation procedures use fat cells grafted from other body areas to relocate to the butt. For this reason, patients with little to no body fat do not make good candidates for this particular procedure. If you are the rare individual who does not have enough fat to transfer for a Brazilian Butt Lift, then the use of buttock implants may be a viable option. Implants can also be combined with fat transfer to achieve desired results.
Butt Lift vs. Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift is more about augmenting the backside and increasing volume. Whereas a Butt Lift procedure is more concerned with lifting a drooping buttock and does not necessarily involve augmentation. A Butt Lift (also referred to as gluteoplasty) is a more invasive procedure that involves removing excess skin and re-positioning surrounding tissue to create a more lifted posterior. A traditional butt lift is typically performed when there is too much skin laxity, for instance, if the patient has lost a significant amount of weight. When there is a large amount of sagging skin and fat in the buttocks, then it is unlikely that this will be able to be filled with the fat from a Brazilian Butt Lift alone. Skin excision will likely be necessary to reset the tone and tautness of the skin and thus achieve better results.
There are several different options for creating a shapelier derriere. The key to choosing the right procedure for you lies in the opinion of your plastic surgeon once he or she has examined you and determined the appropriate course of treatment.
