Optimal patients for the Brazilian butt lift are those who are only seeking to improve their shape. Patients need to have enough fat to harvest effectively. Surgeons prefer a patient to 20-30 pounds heavier than their desired weight. The extra weight is essential for the surgeon to achieve the desired look the patients is expecting. When the fat is harvested, it must be purified before it is put back in the patient’s buttocks area. During the purification process some of the fat is lost, therefor it is essential patients have more than enough fat.
Traditional butt lifts are reserved for patients who have a desire to get rid of extra tissue from the bottoms, or want to make major changes to buttocks. Typically surgeons want patients to try life style changes before undergoing butt lift surgery, because it is a major surgery. The traditional butt lift requires the surgeon to make one of four incisions (upper, lower, lateral, butterfly), to access the tissue, skin, muscle and fat. The surgeon needs to remove skin, and fat to access the muscle, so the muscle can be shaped and moved to the desired position.
The Brazilian butt lift requires small incisions to enhance the buttocks with fat transfer. The surgeon uses liposuction to remove fat from the back, stomach or other undesirable areas. Once the fat is removed, it needs to be process and prepaid to be reentered to the buttocks.
