Women like Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez have no doubt played a role in the average American woman’s desire to have the “perfect” voluptuous butt. In fact, the number of Americans who have chosen to enhance the size and shape of their butt with cosmetic surgery has increased significantly over the last few years.
In the past, butt implants were the only option for buttock augmentation, but now men and women alike can enlarge and perfect their rear ends with a less invasive option: the Brazilian Butt Lift.
What Is the Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift works by removing fat from an area of the body where fat is plenteous, such as the thighs or abdomen, with liposuction. This unwanted fat is then purified and injected back into the patient’s buttocks to contour and smooth the shape and enhance the size. The degree of augmentation depends on the patient’s desires as well as the amount of fat the patient has in the donor area(s). Unlike butt augmentation with implants, the Brazilian Butt Lift uses much smaller incisions, which are made during the liposuction phase of the procedure. This results in a quicker recovery and shorter scars that typically fade with time.
Why Is the Brazilian Butt Lift So Popular?
Last year’s statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal that the Brazilian Butt Lift has shown a 16 percent increase from the previous year, with close to 10,000 procedures performed in 2013. Because of the increasing demand for the procedure, more doctors have received training to perform it, which has made this procedure even more accessible to the average American.
