Is the Brazilian Butt Lift Safe?

brazilian butt liftIt seems like everywhere you turn, you’ve been hearing the virtues of the Brazilian butt lift.  This once-secret Hollywood procedure is now mainstream, thanks to a renewed interest in more voluptuous backsides.  Shapely buttocks are often seen as more feminine and sensual, which is why this procedure is becoming increasingly popular.

Whether this is the first time you’ve heard about Brazilian butt lifts or you’re interested in undergoing the procedure yourself,  there’s probably one question on your mind: Is the Brazilian butt lift safe?

The short answer is that it depends on the procedure you use.  Older generations of the Brazilian butt lift used to rely on foreign implants, which often carried a high risk of infection and complications.  However, Brazilian butt lifts have since evolved, and can now be accomplished via fat transfers.

At Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery (with two locations in Glenn Dale, MD and Lanham, MD), Dr. Nia Banks performs Brazilian butt lifts with fat grafting, using your own fatty tissues.  There are multiple advantages to this version of the Brazilian butt lift, including:

  • Compared to butt implants, it is safer and requires less operative time.  As there is no foreign implant in your body, there’s less risk for infections and complications.  There’s less post-operative discomfort involved, and patients typically recover faster than those who undergo procedures with implants.
  • Fat grafting provides a more natural appearance, which is ideal for patients who are looking for subtle enhancement.  From the look to the feel of the buttocks, no one will know that your backside was enhanced by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon.
  • Utilizing your own fatty tissue means that as your backside increases, another area of your body will shrink.  This is perhaps the biggest benefit of Brazilian butt lifts via fat transfers, as the fat can be taken from your waist, stomach, love handles, hips (flanks), thighs, arms, and other trouble spots.  Patients love the overall results of their Brazilian butt lift procedure, as they walk out of Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery looking like a completely new person.

A Brazilian butt lift is more than an enhancement for your buttocks; it can change your entire shape for the better.  For a Brazilian butt lift consultation with Dr. Banks, visit Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery at one of our two locations in Glenn Dale and Lanham, MD. Both locations serve the greater Baltimore and Washington DC metropolitans.
