Brazilian Butt Augmentation
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a term used to describe fat grafting to enlarge the buttocks and hips giving patients an hourglass silhouette. This surgical procedure is a form of buttock augmentation that not only reshapes but enhances the size of a patient’s buttocks. This is done by using fat from the patient’s body and redistributing to these areas. Your surgeon will take fat from where you don’t want it and add it to areas in need of extra fat to give your body natural looking curves.
Board-certified plastic surgeons Johnny Franco, MD, and Matthew Nykiel, MD discuss how this procedure is performed, managing patients’ expectations, and the art of fat grafting.
While this procedure continues to increase in popularity, so does its high mortality rate. It is important when considering this, or any plastic surgery procedure, that you select a board-certified plastic surgeon.
