One of the fastest-growing trends in cosmetic surgery is the Brazilian Butt-Lift. What makes it different from a traditional butt-lift? Instead of using implants, a Brazilian Butt-Lift utilizes the fat stored in other parts of the patient’s own body and transfers it to the buttocks. This helps slim down a problem area while improving the size and shape of the butt.
Over the last few years, many rumors and myths have circulated about Brazilian Butt-Lifts that simply aren’t true. Here are a few of the most popular ones and what makes them false.
Myth: It will look and feel fake.
Fact: This is definitely not the case if you choose a skilled and highly qualified surgeon like Dr. Wortham. A Brazilian Butt-Lift uses your own fat transferred from other parts of your body so it looks and feels natural.
Myth: It’s just about size.
Fact: For many patients the main focus of a Brazilian Butt-Lift may be to increase the size of the buttocks. However, the shape is almost as important. A skilled surgeon like Dr. Wortham can use fat transfer to help change the shape of your buttocks and sculpt it to give you the results you’re looking for. The ideal Brazilian Butt-Lift should be about size and shape for the best results.
Myth: If you’re thin you’re not a good candidate for the procedure.
Fact: While it’s true that it’s possible to not have enough fat for the fat-transfer process, in many cases even thin men and women have enough fat for the procedure. The size of your butt-lift should complement the size of your natural shape, so a thinner person wouldn’t want as much fat transferred as a curvier man or woman. A thinner patient could also consider implants for a butt-lift, opening up the door to more options in terms of size and shape.
