Brazilian Butt Lift
What is a Brazilian buttock lift?
A Brazilian buttock lift, also referred to as buttocks enhancement, is designed to create a fuller, curvier buttocks and hips. The procedure is not actually a “lift” but rather a transfer of fat
from another area of the body to the buttocks. Unlike butt implants, buttocks enhancement through fat transfer
creates a much more natural look and feel.
Is buttocks enhancement right for me?
Butt enhancement surgery is ideal for patients who desire a more shapely, rounded buttocks or enlarged hips. As an added benefit, the removal of fat for transfer allows Dr. Karlinksy to slim and sculpt other areas of your body for greater contouring. For many patients, Brazilian butt lifts offer the best of both worlds – slimming the stomach or thighs while naturally enhancing the derrière.
