Brazilian Butt Lift involves removing the unwanted fat deposits with liposuction, and then transferring the fat to the buttocks and hips in order to achieve an improved buttock contour and volume. In addition, this augmentation often gives a more lifted appearance by supporting the soft tissues of the buttocks. An added benefit of the grafted fat for many is an improvement in the overall quality of the skin and cellulite..
In certain circumstances, a formal buttock lift may be more beneficial, removing the excess, lax skin above the buttocks. Tissue flaps may be preserved and used during this procedure to augment the upper buttocks.
