Who doesn’t want to feel their best in a pair of tight jeans? If you’re not completely satisfied with your rear view, a better backside is attainable with cosmetic surgery. Comprised of removing fat from one area of the body where there may be a little too much of it, and grafting it to the butt, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a surefire way to give your backside a boost. Besides adding shape, contours and definition, the use of fat in the butt can minimize the look of cellulite as dimples become more even and flush with the surrounding skin. “Fat transfer for body sculpting is one of the biggest trends right now because women want a curvy figure,” says Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon Ashkan Ghavami, MD. Not only does fat make the butt more shapely and amplify the size, (it’s also the most natural choice; implants can be used, although they do not look and feel as natural) it also, “gives a 3-D transformation that can be seen from every angle, accentuating and highlighting convexities and concavities, especially to those who genetically have a square body type,” explains Dr. Ghavami.
You can see results fairly quickly, but with fat, the size or shape of your butt may shrink slightly as some of the fat is absorbed. The final shape and size should develop after about three to six months. The Bottom Line: Expect the results to be long-term. According to new research, about 30 to 75 percent of the transplanted fat will survive.
