If you want to achieve shapelier, sexier buttocks, cardio, weightlifting and genetics will only take you so far.

For many women, no matter what they do, they simply can’t add more volume and definition to their buttocks but this is where the Brazilian butt lift comes in.

This procedure has really been refined in recent years and has fast become one of the most popular procedures across the globe.

Everyone has their own idea of what the perfect butt looks like and while you can put in the work to achieve a more defined behind, your cultural background does play a role in the build as well as the natural shape of your buttocks.

Butt Augmentation Options

Buttocks augmentation has been around for quite some time but implants were once the only way to add more volume to the buttocks.

The implants worked well enough but the results never looked as natural as they could and there was always a risk of them being rejected. Since the implants also contained silicone, implant rupturing became a particular concern.

Fortunately, fat grafting became a second, safer option for enhancing the size and shape of the buttocks.

Brazilian Butt Lifts: What to Expect

During your Brazilian butt lift consultation at Ritz Plastic Surgery, your surgeon will measure your buttocks before recommending an ideal size based on your hip, breast and waist measurements. This is done to ensure that your new buttocks look natural and are in proportion to the rest of your body. If you are happy with the recommendations, you can go ahead and schedule your surgery.

During your procedure, liposuction will be used to remove excess fat from your arms, thighs, stomach or your love handles. This fat will then be purified to get rid of excess blood and oil before it is injected into the buttocks. Your surgeon will then manipulate the fat to give you a fuller, sexier shape.

Brazilian Butt Lifts: Recovery and Results

Following your butt lift at Ritz Plastic Surgery, you will be wrapped in a compression garment that will help keep everything in place while you heal. Your surgeon will also provide you with very specific instructions on what to do during your recovery.

For example, it will be important to not apply direct pressure to the buttocks area for several weeks to allow new blood vessels to form and the fat to settle and heal. You will also need to refrain from engaging in any strenuous activities for several weeks after your surgery to prevent the transferred fat from being dislodged. It will help to walk around though to increase blood flow to the area.

Choosing a Butt Lift Surgeon

Not just any doctor can perform this procedure, which is why it’s important to search for an experienced plastic surgeon who is board certified. There is a big difference between a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon and your health, wellbeing and your results will depend on who you choose to perform your procedure.
