A recent patient who underwent liposuction to her circumferential trunk and fat grafting to the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift) was thrilled with her results. Read her open letter to potential future patients below.
We last blogged about the Brazilian Butt Lift more than two years ago. The procedure continues to enjoy incredible popularity. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Brazilian butt lift procedure increased 20% in 2016 and was performed over 20,000 times last year alone.
Some things have changed in two years. Desired celebrity backsides have transitioned from Kim Kardashian to Instragram celebs like Caitlin Rice and Joselyn Cano (who has 10.4 million followers!). What hasn't changed is patients' desire to put their best butt forward (or backward?)
Time magazine has devoted a recent cover story to Mattel's new take on their classic doll, which has Barbie sporting more realistic body shapes. Their new lineup includes tall, petite and curvy body types.
Brazilian Butt Lifts are exploding in popularity - the number of procedures performed in the U.S. skyrocketed 86% from 2013 to 2014. Popular culture is dominated by extreme examples of the curvaceous posterior. (Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj to name a few). Many patients express curiousity about the procedure but are hesitant to procede for two main reasons: fear of ending up with a gigantic backside and dismay over the postopoperative restrictions. Let's talk about it.
