Staying ahead of the curves: 8 reasons Brazilian butt lifts are on the rise


Backsides are attracting a lot of attention these days. Celebrities including the Kardashian sisters and Jennifer Lopez grab headlines courtesy of their shapely rear ends. This has people in Kentucky seeking to significantly boost their own behinds. Enter the Brazilian butt lift, a wildly popular cosmetic surgery procedure that provides head-turning results naturally. This innovative technique involves extracting a patient’s own fat via liposuction. The cells are purified before being transferred through injections into the buttocks to enhance the area and create sexy curves.

Currently one of the most-requested cosmetic treatments, it is important to remember that Brazilian butt lifts are not a one-size-fits all procedure. A common misconception is that it results in an unusually large derriere, which may appear disproportionate to the body. This usually is not the case, nor the desired outcome of most patients who opt to have it. Rather, the goal typically is to enhance and lift the bottom to achieve a smoother, more toned look, as well as boost confidence in their overall appearance.

As with any cosmetic surgery, it is important that patients have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure. Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, a dual board-certified aesthetic and plastic surgeon with Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY, has vast experience performing Brazilian butt lifts on patients with whom he works closely to create and achieve the shapelier behinds they dream about. As a result, he is able to lend his expert insight in explaining exactly why this exciting, transformative procedure has become all the rage.

Minimal effort equals big results


The Brazilian butt lift is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure. Only small incisions are required to perform liposuction, during which unwanted fat is removed from areas including the thighs, hips, and the abdomen. It is then transferred (or grafted) to augment and contour the behind. Patients usually can return home immediately following surgery.

Better outcomes can be achieved


Patients in Louisville often opt for the Brazilian butt lift because it provides more natural-looking results than other procedures designed to augment the backside, including surgical butt lifts that are most often considered after experiencing dramatic weight loss to remove and tighten loose, sagging skin on and around the behind.

Bottoms can also be boosted with the help of implants, which are an option for those in search of dramatic, recognizable results as well as those who are not good candidates for the Brazilian butt lift procedure. However, with implants there is a risk that the device may shift or rupture as well as place pressure on nerves in the legs. There is also a chance that the body will reject them. Because implant surgery can be more taxing on the body, a longer recovery period may be necessary.

It is more natural


Because a patient’s own fat cells are being utilized to augment the backside, there is a much lower risk of complications associated with the Brazilian butt lift. After being injected into the area, the cells typically continue to thrive, thus improving the odds of experiencing more natural-looking, longer-lasting results.

A more balanced look can be achieved


When it comes to Brazilian butt lifts, many patients mistakenly believe that injecting abundant amounts of fat into their bottom will yield a more pleasing aesthetic outcome. In this case, however, more is not necessarily better. As a dual board-certified surgeon, Dr. Nana Mizuguchi is able to expertly sculpt areas around the buttocks, including the flanks, lower back and thighs, to create the balanced, dramatic results that patients typically prefer.

A faster recovery is expected


The recovery period associated with the Brazilian butt lift typically is short, lasting only a few days, during which time patients may feel slightly sore in the areas from which the fat was extracted. Compression garments may be provided to assist the body in adjusting to its new shape, a process that usually is completed within a couple of weeks. Most patients can resume normal daily activities soon after surgery, since significant downtime is not required. The optimal results of a Brazilian butt lift typically will be evident within 6-12 weeks.

It is more effective than exercise
Building a better butt isn’t easy. While many individuals attempt to shape their backsides with squats, lunges and other targeted exercises, finding the time and energy to do so can be a challenge. Simply put, it is difficult to match the fast, effective, well-sculpted results supplied by the Brazilian butt lift.

Two procedures in one surgery


Beyond the backside, the liposuction involved also serves to simultaneously slim others areas of the body where stubborn fat persists, such as the arms, waist and lower back. This can result in a contoured look without requiring additional cosmetic surgeries. It often is possible for skilled a surgeon such as Dr. Nana Mizuguchi of Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville to sculpt a so-called “hourglass” figure for patients who desire the overall shape of their bodies to be more voluptuous. In many cases, patients will notice an improved profile and enhanced figure - as well as experience a boost in self-confidence - soon after their Brazilian butt lift procedure.

Everybody’s doing it


While Brazilian butt lifts have proven to be incredibly popular among Louisville, KY women, many men also opt to undergo the procedure, especially those who have tried to improve their physiques with diet and exercise to no avail. No matter a patient’s gender, the Brazilian butt lift can enhance and contour the derriere and make for an overall better-looking, more sculpted backside.
