Brazilian Butt Lift Myths

Posted on February 24, 2019

Brazilian Butt Lift Myths If you want to improve the shape and proportion of your buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift will achieve your goals. Unfortunately, there are lots of misconceptions about this surgery, and perhaps some of these myths are making you think twice about undergoing a Brazilian butt lift. Once you have the facts, you can make an informed decision about having this procedure. At Aqua Plastic Surgery, our trusted plastic surgeons Drs. David Rankin and Dev Vibhakar bust some of the myths surrounding butt lifts.

Other People’s Fat is Used

No stranger’s fat is injected into your body during a Brazilian butt lift. The surgeon removes fat from one part of your body, usually the abdomen or hips, and injects it into the butt. Because the procedure is completely autologous, there is no chance that your body will reject the donor fat or that there will be an allergic reaction.

Thin People Can’t Have Brazilian Butt Lifts

This myth probably started because thinner individuals obviously don’t have as much body fat as those carrying some extra pounds, and the idea spread that skinny people don’t have enough fat for liposuction. While its true thin people have less body fat, they usually don’t need as much body fat transferred to get the results they want.

Butt Implants Look More Natural

Butt implants are the right choice for some people, but a more natural look isn’t a reason to choose them. Not only do implants look less natural, but there are also practical considerations. Butt implants may shift over time, causing discomfort and the need for removal.
