Brazilian Butt Lift


Brazilian Butt Lift One of the most popular new procedures for butt augmentation, the Brazilian Butt Lift, is a less invasive take on butt implants and butt lift surgery. The procedure itself utilizes donor body fat, which is injected into specific, varied points on the buttocks after being removed via minor liposuction.

Brazilian butt lifts don't involve making incisions in the buttock tissue, and don't require any recontouring of buttock skin and muscle, as is typical with standard buttock lift surgery or butt implants. For this reason, Brazilian butt lifts reportedly require less recovery time, and pose a lesser risk of side effects. Lastly, because Brazilian butt lifts use a patient's own body fat in the injection, there is virtually no risk of allergic reactions and no potential harm from filler absorption.
