Liposuction surgery removes excess fat from areas of the body that generally don’t respond well to exercise and dieting, like love handles, arms, or thighs. However, liposuction can also be the first step in a body contouring procedure such as a Brazilian butt lift.
Why Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Require Liposuction?
A butt lift produces a fuller, more voluptuous derriere without the use of implants. To achieve this, liposuction is used to extract fat from other parts of the body. This fat is purified to make it safe for reentry, then it’s strategically injected back into the patient’s backside and sculpted to create the desired figure.
In using the patient’s own fat, the results look and feel natural.
Are There Other Benefits to Using the Patient’s Fat vs. Implants?
Yes! The fat that’s extracted during liposuction isn’t taken at random. The surgeon will extract unwanted fat from specific areas to further enhance the final results.
For example, a more proportional look can be achieved by taking fat from the waist or abdomen. After liposuction surgery, these areas appear slimmer and more contoured – which in turn emphasizes the appearance of the butt lift.
Can Liposuction Surgery Achieve Anything Else?
Before speaking with a plastic surgeon, many patients assume that they can only get liposuction on one area of the body at a time. This couldn’t be further from the truth! Patients can undergo liposuction surgery to contour many problem areas at once as part of a collection of procedures (like a mommy makeover).
