The brazilian butt lift augments and enhances your buttocks using fat from unwanted areas of your body. The procedure really is a total body resculpting of your abdomen, flanks, and buttocks. I have been performing the brazilian butt lift for many years with great success. To learn more about the complex steps involved in the procedures, see this technique video.
Since the Brazilian butt lift results from a fat transfer, the question I get from most patients is whether they'll lose the effect of the procedure if they lose weight after the surgery! The short answer is this: If the fat is processed and grafted correctly, you will not lose the effects.
In the video above I explain in more detail what actually happens when weight loss occurs following brazilian butt lift surgery by illustrating a paient case. The patient, post op, was 5'2" tall and weighed 135 pounds. Following her surgery, she experienced a weight loss of about 12 pounds, which is almost 10% of her body weight, and then eventually gained the weight back again.
Both during the loss of weight and the gain of weight, she kept her new figure. I show before and after photos in great detail to illustrate the patient pre-operatively and post-operatively both at the height of weightloss and after the weight was regained.
The results of her brazilian butt lift were durable. Despite the weight loss and weight gain, her figure remained proportional. The photos shown in the video help me illustrate the hip to waist ratio and how weight fluctations following a Brazilian butt lift can happen - but they happen in your new body shape.
The wonder of fat grafting is that it can truly change your body proportions in a way that will not be affected significantly by future weight gains or losses. I've also written a blog post about this case study and video in this blog post.
