Over the past few decades, society’s ideal body shape has changed quite a lot. While having perkier breasts has always been a concern for women, the shape of the butt has bumped them for top priority. Many women incorporate squats and stair-stepping exercises into their workouts to help tone this area of the body, but factors such as age and genetics put limitations on the amount of change a patient can achieve through exercise alone.
Who Is a Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Patients who are dealing with the following issues may be good candidates for a Brazilian Buttlift:
- Buttocks that are too small in proportion to the rest of the body, giving the patient an ‘unbalanced’ look.
- A butt that is too flat or square-shaped and could use more curves
- A butt that has started to sag due to aging (BBL can make it look more youthful)
- Buttocks that appear to be sagging or flat due to weight loss
- Clothing and swimwear do not the butt area properly
- A desire for larger buttocks with better curvature and contours
Ideal candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift will have plenty of fatty tissue around the body to be extracted with liposuction. Patients who do not have enough fat in other areas of the body may be instructed to put on some weight so that there is more to draw from. Beyond these criteria, skin laxity and skin tightness can both negatively impact the results of the procedure down the line. The patient’s skin quality will need to be assessed prior to undergoing the treatment.
