Brazilian Butt Lift Options
About Fat Grafting
The Brazilian butt lift is performed using the fat transfer technique, also known as fat grafting, rather than implants. Fat grafting allows your results to look and feel completely natural since your buttocks area is enhanced using your own fat cells.
The Donor Site
Because the fat grafting technique is a two-step procedure that includes liposuction to harvest fat cells from your body, you and Dr. Castellano will need to select a donor site. The donor site is the area of your body from which your fat cells will be taken and transferred to the buttocks. One of the primary benefits of a Brazilian butt lift is that you have the opportunity to slim down an area of your body in addition to augmenting the buttocks.
When considering the best donor site for your procedure, think about the parts of your body that tend to gain weight first and lose weight last. These are your “problem spots,” areas that store excess fat that may not respond to diet or exercise, making fat harvesting a good opportunity to fine-tune your figure.
The most common donor sites include:
- Love handles
- Upper arms
- Lower back
Dr. Castellano can provide recommendations for the best donor site for you based on your body type and goals. Because the Brazilian butt lift requires transferring your own fat cells and not a family member’s, very thin people with no viable excess fat may not be good candidates.
Sculpting the Body
While you may initially think that you only want a larger posterior, most people have a specific idea of how they would like their buttocks enhanced. Some people who get the Brazilian butt lift are seeking greater projection of the buttocks, while others may wish to create a rounder shape for their bottom by augmenting and sculpting the sides.
Communicating your goals with Dr. Castellano is essential for achieving your ideal Brazilian butt lift results. In addition to describing your ideal look, you can bring in photos of your “dream results” to make sure that nothing gets lost in translation.
Your New Look
By carefully considering your Brazilian butt lift options, you can work with Dr. Castellano to create a figure that you’ll love. While a Brazilian butt lift can be an excellent way to enhance your overall body shape, it’s important to maintain realistic expectations.
