Many women are coming to NYC to have Brazilian butt lift surgery and achieve a curvy, attractive posterior. The treatment is especially popular because it uses your own fat for butt enhancement. Having the treatment in the winter-spring season is ideal to get beach-ready for the summer.
At your appointment with an experienced NYC plastic surgeon, you will first have to undergo a thorough evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. In fact, to be a suitable candidate for Brazilian butt lift (BBL), you have to satisfy certain criteria. Importantly, you should have a fair amount of fat in the abdomen, hips, waist and lower back to spare for transfer to the buttocks, and must commit to the postoperative recovery afterwards.
Patients with very little fat are not considered suitable candidates for BBL. In a typical procedure, the surgeon injects a good amount of fat in the order of several hundred CCs or even more per buttock. The reason is that not all the fat cells that are transferred will survive. Therefore, in most cases, the surgeon will opt to probably overfill the buttocks with fat by a certain percentage to compensate for fat loss, if any.
It is also important that you are medically fit and having realistic expectations is important. You should have an open discussion with your surgeon to get a good idea about what you can actually achieve with the treatment. Being healthy is important as medical conditions could affect procedural efficiency and smooth recovery. Another important quality is reasonably good skin tone in the areas to be treated. This will help avoid sagging skin after the procedure. You should also be close to your ideal body weight to be a good candidate for buttock enhancement.
Choosing a surgeon who is an expert in this innovative fat transfer procedure is important for optimal results and your safety. The right surgeon will explain all the pros and cons to you and perform a detailed assessment to decide your candidature for BBL. A skilled surgeon will also be knowledgeable about maintaining the balance between fat removal and addition to provide attractive body contouring results.
