Am I the Right Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Brazilian Butt LiftBrazilian butt lift (BBL), the cosmetic surgical procedure that uses your own fat instead of implants to enhance the buttocks, is becoming increasingly popular. With plastic surgeons who are skilled in performing the procedure, NYC has become a hub for prospective candidates. However, as not all women are good candidates for the treatment, let’s take a look at the basic conditions that suitable candidates have to meet.

First, to be a suitable candidate for fat grafting, you should have enough fat to spare for transfer to the buttocks. BBL involves transferring fat from areas such as the abdomen, flanks and thighs to the derriere. The fat tissues are extracted through liposuction, processed and purified and injected into appropriate places to improve the size and shape of the posterior. A successful procedure would provide you with rounder, curvier buttocks proportionate to your overall physique.

The best candidates for this natural buttock augmentation procedure are those who:

  • Want to improve the size, symmetry and overall appearance of the derriere
  • Want to avoid implants and are seeking natural-looking results
  • Are physically fit and do not have any medical condition that would impair healing
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome

Being physically and emotionally mature is also crucial. Plastic surgeons in NYC get queries from women who are as young as 18, asking if they are suitable candidates for a BBL. While 18 years is legally the age of consent, expert surgeons recommend that young women wait until their body is fully developed before they have the procedure. Moreover, emotional maturity is also important as a young woman’s perceptions about her body image may change over time.

So if you are planning to have a Brazilian butt lift in NYC, schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon with vast experience in performing the Brazilian butt lift. The surgeon will evaluate you thoroughly to determine your candidature. With a skilled plastic surgeon, the right candidate would benefit from superior outcomes – a sculpted lower body with a beautiful S-curve.
