When a Brazilian Butt Lift Might Be Right for You

Curves are a sign of youth and femininity. A shapely appearance can make you feel attractive, but not everyone is born with a shapely backside.

Many women with a flat butt complain of having a disproportionate body shape. While butt implants can offer an improvement in shape, many risks are associated with the procedure. While butt pads can temporarily fix this, most of the time this looks fake and can be embarrassing if noticed.

Do you wish there was a more permanent way to add volume to your backside? At L.A. Vinas, with two locations in Florida, we provide Brazilian Butt Lifts as a natural way to add volume and shape to your backside.

Here we tell you more about this cosmetic surgery and who might consider it.

What’s involved

Genetics are usually to blame for the size and shape of your buttocks. Two factors like your skeletal structure and how your body accumulates fat are dependent on the shape of your backside. While some people aren’t bothered by a flat backside, others wish to improve it to enhance their appearance.

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a specialized treatment that should only be done by an incredibly skilled surgeon — like Luis Vinas, MD. As a physician certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, he has helped many patients get a life-changing body with minimal recovery time.

A Brazilian Butt Lift is generally performed as an outpatient procedure using local or general anesthesia. There are three steps in a Brazilian Butt Lift:

  1. Liposuction removes fat from places like the hips, thighs, abdomen, and lower back
  2. Fat is repurposed and prepared for transfer
  3. Dr. Vinas injects the fat into targeted points on the buttocks to enhance their shape

Pain is generally minimal after surgery and results are typically seen about six weeks. Brazilian Butt Lifts last for years and sometimes decades, but your results are dependent on your recovery.

Who should consider it?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is an invasive surgery. Deciding to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift is a decision only you can make for yourself. Here are some factors that may determine if you are a good candidate for this surgery.

You are unhappy with your butt

Flat bottom. Drooping butt. Asymmetrical buttocks. If this is one of the problems you’d like to address, a Brazilian Butt Lift might be for you. Patients who have lost a lot of weight and want to receive a more proportionate shape may be a good candidate to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift.

You have adequate fat

For liposuction to take place, you need to have an ample amount of fat. A good rule of thumb is having 2-3 times the amount of fat needed for the injection — if you don’t have enough fat, there is nothing to shape the buttocks with.

You have realistic expectations

It is important to have realistic expectations when undergoing surgery. While many patients receive life-changing results and get the confidence-booster they are looking for, you must understand that surgery is not magic.

You can avoid sitting for ~2 weeks

Dr. Vinas suggests his patients avoid sitting or lying directly on their butt for about two weeks. During this time, you must stand or lay on your side or stomach for all activity except when on the toilet.

After this essential healing period, he’ll allow you to use a donut-shaped pillow. Most patients can resume normal sitting after eight weeks.

You are close to your goal weight

Because weight loss can affect your results, the best candidates for surgery are close to their goal weight. You may be a good candidate if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less and you don’t fluctuate weight often.

The bottom line

Big butts are a fashion trend that isn’t going anywhere. If you’re unhappy with your backside, a Brazilian Butt Lift is a great and natural-looking way to heighten your sex appeal.

Since it’s your body and only your body, you should only consider a Brazilian Butt Lift if you’re doing it for yourself. If you like what you hear and you meet all the criteria noted in the previous section, you may be a great candidate for this cosmetic surgery.
