To achieve the ideal buttock shape and size, it’s important to have a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, and review their credentials and past patients’ results. Buttock augmentation, also commonly referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift in Riverview is more than just about making the buttock look bigger.

Liposuction and Fat Transfer

The Brazilian butt lift is actually a two-in-one procedure, where the body is slimmed by liposuction techniques, generally VASER liposuction, from a problem area(s), such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. Once the fat is gently removed, it’s purified and reinjected into the other areas of the body – in a butt augmentation case, the buttock.

Fat Transfer or Implants

Fat transfer has a natural beauty that is difficult to achieve with buttock implants. Additionally, fat offers permanent results. Once the body has accepted the fat graft, it will never need to be changed, removed, or replaced. Results from a Brazilian butt lift do take a little longer for them to fully develop, rather than the immediate results of buttock implants.

Shape and Size of Buttock Augmentation

Many patients think that the goal of a Brazilian butt lift is to just make the buttock bigger, which is not the case. First, the natural anatomy of the patient is considered so the results are proportionate to the rest of their body. There are four common shapes that patient’s want to achieve based on their anatomy, including a square shape, a “V,” an “A,” and a “C.”

The A-shape buttock is ideal for slimmer patients with wider hips. The C shape is for a larger, wider buttock, compared with Kim Kardashian or Nicki Minaj.

Find Your Expert Plastic Surgeon

Fat transfer and specifically the Brazilian butt lift are very technique-based surgeries. Few plastic surgeons are considered experts in this specific procedure, so it’s important for patients to do their research before taking the plunge.
