Brazilian Butt Lift: Why do people want it

April 20, 2017

In today’s media, the Brazilian butt is the epitome sexy. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Iggy Izalea and Nicki Minaj are famously identified by their derrieres. It has become the allure of women to the modern day man.

The buttocks in Brazilian culture became popularized in the 20th century with music and poetry. Gilberto Freyre (1984) said the male preference for larger butts comes from the African (16th century) and the Iberian period. It is believed the buttocks have an erotic power that brings out the natural passion in men. (Hall & Graham, 2012)

Many women, who say they have “flat or saggy” butts,  yearn for the full rounded look. They seek the Brazilian gold standard of bums, which is generally achieved through common medical practices of butt lifts, augmentations and enhancements.

What in the world is a Brazilian butt lift?

2015 was dubbed as the “Year of the rear” by The American Society of Plastic Surgery.

New ASPS stats showed that 2015 was another year of the rear, as procedures focusing on the derriere dominated surgical growth. Buttock implants were the fastest growing type of cosmetic surgery in 2015, and, overall, there was a buttock procedure every 30 minutes of every day, on average.

In general terms, the Brazilian butt lift is a procedure to make the buttocks look more plump and to lessen the sagging. This type of butt is popularized by fitness models and celebrities who have shapely buttocks.

Even though for some women such bottoms can be achieved by leg workouts and exercise, older woman who have lost elasticity will experience difficulty in getting the type of butt they yearn for. It has become more and more common for women to have procedures done than ever before.

Brazilian Butt Lifts Procedure

Fat grafting is the most common option for a Brazilian Butt Lift. It is fat that is harvested from unwanted areas and injected into the rear. This form of buttock enhancement is done to add temporary shape and volume into the butt. Following the surgery, the butt will appear more rounded and voluptuous.

Generally, 30-60% of the fat grafts will survive. Patients are advised of second procedures after a year to get optimal aesthetic results.  The second treatment will harvest the fat again, and should generally make up for the percentage of fat that did not survive in the buttocks. Keep note that fat grafting is only a temporary solution, and if you are looking for a more aggressive approach, then surgical implants will be a better solution.

There is a significant difference after fat grafting, but it pales in comparison to implant surgery.
