One of the biggest benefits of a Brazilian butt lift is that the procedure utilizes your own natural fat cells rather than synthetic implants. So where does this fat come from? Do you get to choose? Read on to learn more about the two-step BBL process.
Brazilian Butt Lift Liposuction Options
The first step of a Brazilian butt lift is liposuction. This step can be performed virtually anywhere on your body, but typically comes with contouring the abdomen, waist and back, which together with the fat transfer to the buttocks creates a nice silhouette.
However, if you would prefer to take fat from other areas of your body, this shouldn’t be a problem. Liposuction of the outer thighs, arms or other areas can also be done if additional fat is needed or if these are problem spots for you that would improve your overall results.
If one of these areas doesn’t have quite enough fat for your Brazilian butt lift, you can get liposuction in more than one area as part of your BBL.
How Much Fat Is Needed for a BBL?
There is a common misconception about Brazilian butt lifts that they are not for petite people. This, however, isn’t necessarily true. Most people have enough extra fat, especially if taken from multiple areas, for a successful BBL.
Choosing the Right Cosmetic Surgeon
If you have questions about your Brazilian butt lift liposuction options, the best approach is to schedule a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon, like Dr. Andan, who can thoroughly answer your questions and address any concerns you might have.
During your consultation, Dr. Andan can assess your unique body shape and goals and help you determine if you are a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift.
