What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBF) is augmentation of the derriere with fat transferred from other areas of the body. The goal is to increase fullness, plumpness and protrusion or projection of the rear, to balance the figure and enhance self confidence and body image.
Other than the breasts, the hips and rear end are commonly the focus of much attention. All are symbols of femininity and sensuality. Idealized body beauty is reflected in the belief that the upper body should be proportion to the lower body.
A Brazilian Butt Lift addresses body image concerns such as a small, flat or sagging buttocks, asymmetry and imbalances. A BBF uses your own body fat to lift and sculpt the buttocks. Using liposuction, the fat is typically harvested from the waist, abdomen, lower back and hips, and then injected to fill out the buttocks.
Thus this procedure can reduce areas of unwanted fat, sculpting those areas, and contouring your buttocks at the same time. While the objective is to augment the derriere, the procedure offers the opportunity to transform you entire shape.
Dr. Anthony Griffin of Beverly Hills, CA offers BBL to men and women. With men the aesthetic goals include the creation of a torso that is an upside down triangle. As men age they lose fat in their buttocks and gain it in their stomachs. Liposuction of the abdomen and waist will generate the fat cells necessary for the BBL procedure. To create a masculine appearance, the shape of the muscles will be accentuated including the shape of the abdomen and chest.
Men with concerns about a flat buttocks can achieve natural looking, masculine results with a BBL to enhance their figures. They too will find better balance and proportion.
In women, harvesting fat from the lower back and waist, especially muffin tops, allows Dr. Anthony Griffin to create a beautifully S-shaped curve which enhances the appearance of the buttocks, while slimming the waist, and improving the waist to buttocks ratio.
Dr. Griffin customizes this procedure for each individual patient based on his or her goals and desires. And this procedure can be combined with other body shaping procedures such as breast augmentation, or abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) for complete body transformation for women, and for men, a BBL combined with sculpted six-pack abs, via liposuction, offers complete rejuvenation.
Am I a good candidate?
The only way to know for certain is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Griffin. Generally, you may be a good candidate if:
- you are generally in good health
- have realistic expectations about the outcome
- You do not smoke, as smoking interferes with healing
- desire to add volume to your tush
- you have excess fatty deposits that are available for transfer to your behind.
If you are too thin, you may need to gain weight before BBL so that there is sufficient fat that can be transferred to sculpt the butt.
Consultation with Dr. Griffin
Whether the dramatic curves you have admired on J Lo, or Kim Kardashian can be achieved, depends on your anatomy, and your surgeon. During your consultation, renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Griffin, in Beverly Hills, California, will examine your body, your overall body shape and proportions, and apply buttocks aesthetics, and his artistic eye, to evaluate your buttocks and also the areas around the buttocks.
At your consultation it is important to point out your trouble spots. He will review your medical history and discuss the procedure, your expectations and answer your questions. Then, he will determine whether you are a good candidate, and give you his recommendations.
The true beauty of a Brazilian Butt Lift is that it uses your own body fat, so there is no risk of allergic reaction to foreign materials, and the result is smooth and natural. The results can last 20 years or more because Dr. Griffin is an expert at properly harvesting and transplanting the fat in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Inevitably, some of the fat cells will be absorbed back into the body and some will stay where it was injected. Staying fit and slim can help keep your BBF looking terrific. However, as we age, it is normal that your buttocks will change.
