The Brazilian Butt Lift: Your Questions Answered
By: Philip Morrison, Director of Sales
The Brazilian Butt Lift! What can we say, it’s a very hot procedure these days with women from all walks of life inquiring about it. At Morrison Plastic Surgery we get tons of inquiries and have actually beat our initial estimates on how many we thought we would do this year (it’s only October and have a few months to go ! So we figured since its one of our top rated procedures we would talk a bit about it and how we perform this service.
For those who don’t know, what exactly is a Brazilian Butt Lift? To put it simply the Brazilian Butt Lift is a butt augmentation that uses the fat from our own body and places it in our buttocks. In essence that’s really what it is. Liposuction is done to selectively remove fat from certain areas of the body: abdomen, waist, love handles, back, thighs, arms, etc… basically any place where the body has extra fatty tissue. This fat is then separated from the blood and purified to then be injected, to permanently sculpt and enlarge the buttocks. After the surgery, we sometimes have our patients wear a garment that helps reduce swelling, and maintain the shape of your new and improved buttock!
So, what’s the end result? Good question. Your new Brazilian Butt Lift will leave you with a smaller waist and a larger, more shapely butt that will have you feeling confident and have others wondering what’s so different about you! You will have a more contoured shape that will accentuate all your new curves!
Here are some answers to some often asked questions:
Q: What is the rate?
A: It all depends. The fact is that each of you are unique. You have different body types and have different expectations. As discussed above, the Brazilian Lift is actually 2 different procedures: Liposuction and Butt Augmentation. Because of this, it can be a very time consuming procedure (as much as 5 hours) and requires artistry in how it is executed for best results. For this reason, it is very hard to say what the price will be before a consultation is had. The sooner you come in for a consultation, the sooner we (you and Morrison Plastic Surgery) will know how much it will be.
Q: If I’m really skinny, can I do this procedure?
A: It all depends. As stated above the procedure uses fat from own bodies so if we don’t have much fat on our bodies there won’t be much to use for sculpting purposes. Again, the only way to know for sure is for you to come in for a consultation and speak with Dr. Norman Morrison.
Q: Can I use someone else’s fat?
A: No. That’s all there is to it, using the fat from someone else is just plain unsafe.
Q: Does Morrison Plastic Surgery use implants?
A: No. The use of implants carries a great deal of risk in terms of complications (and just doesn’t look as natural). It is a method we don’t use at Morrison Plastic Surgery.
