A Brazilian butt lift, or buttock augmentation surgery, can help patients address flat or shapeless buttocks. The most common question many patients want answered in an initial consultation is, “How much of a difference can I make in my appearance with the procedure?”
A Brazilian butt lift transfers fat from one part of the body through liposuction to the buttocks (much the same way that a hair restoration procedure uses follicles from a donor site.) Dr. Max moves and shapes the fat to provide the fullest, most natural contour possible. Given this process, a few factors play a role in how curvy the procedure can make you.
Availability of Donor Material
Since the Brazilian butt lift transfers fat from one part of the body to another, the increase in size is directly related to how much fat a person has available.
A woman who is very petite may not have the same amount of fat as a larger woman. However, Dr. Max may still be able to use 200 to 250 CCs from donor sites like the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and back. While this is less fat than another woman might have to donate, the transfer to the buttocks might make a more dramatic change in someone who has a smaller frame.
Viability of Fat after a Brazilian Butt Lift
During a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Max has several goals. One of them is the careful collection of fat through liposuction. Caution is necessary in removing, storing, and reintroducing fat because it is so fragile.
A certain portion of fat will not survive the transfer process and will be reabsorbed into the body (generally during the first six months.) This is typically not a problem because Dr. Max adds enough fat to compensate for this loss. However, introducing too much can decrease its viability. As a result, the “curviness” of your results depends in part on how much fat can fit inside and stay viable.
The proportions of a person’s body are as important to aesthetics as any other aspect of their appearance. Dr. Max takes careful measurements during consultations with Brazilian butt lift patients, discusses their goals, and makes recommendations about size to suit their frame.
Why not go bigger? Buttocks that are significantly larger than the flanks or legs can result in an unnatural appearance. To get results that stand out in the right way, Dr. Max will help you find the right size increase. Then, he will perform the procedure in a way that can help your curves flow together gracefully.
