Brazilian Butt Lifts: Why They've Never Been More Popular

Plastic surgery can accomplish many things, nipping and tucking to shape various areas of your body into a proportion that pleases you. One of the more successful procedures is what we call a Brazilian butt lift, which involves taking fat from one area and placing it into another, in this case your buttocks.

At McHugh Plastic Surgery, Dr. Thomas McHugh offers buttock augmentation using the Brazilian butt lift technique, helping his patients in The Woodlands, Texas, achieve a more prominent and well-rounded hind end.

If you’d like to explore why the Brazilian butt lift has grown in popularity over the last five years, read on.

Brazilian butt lift 101

A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure named after a Brazilian surgeon who first pioneered the technique of augmenting the buttocks using a patient’s own fat, which is taken from other areas.

Using liposuction,DR. MCHUGH  removes fat from where you may have some to spare, including from your:

Once the fat is treated, DR.MCHUGH strategically injects the fat back into your buttocks to enhance and augment the area, creating a rounder, perkier appearance. Your fat is readily accepted by your body since it’s biocompatible, which makes the fat transfer more effective.

Ultimately, a Brazilian butt lift offers a one-two punch in that DR. MCHUGH removeS the fat from where you don’t want it and put it where you do.

Benefiting from a butt lift

There are many reasons why people turn to a butt lift. For example, for women who’ve had children, their musculature and body shape can change dramatically, especially around the buttocks.

Genetics also play a role, as some people are genetically prone to flatter, less prominent buttocks thanks to their musculoskeletal structures.

Lastly, age can also play a role as your hind end loses support and succumbs to gravity.

Whatever your reasons, if you’re unhappy about the appearance of your butt and feel it could use a little enhancement, a Brazilian butt lift may be just the ticket.
