When you look in the mirror, does the top of your body overpower the bottom? You may have beautiful breasts but not much of a corresponding curve below the waist.
You see models and actresses such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian with perfect, round derrieres. Yours doesn’t look like theirs. Perhaps you weren’t gifted genetically with a beautiful, round bottom. Many of those superstars may not have been, either.
If your backside doesn’t have the curves you want, Dr. Jeff Angobaldo, board-certified plastic surgeon with Renaissance Plastic Surgery in Plano, Texas, can reshape your bottom with a Brazilian butt lift. This procedure enhances the size and shape of your bottom.
Why the Brazilian butt lift has become so popular
The Brazilian butt lift has taken the world of cosmetic surgery by storm, thanks to the increasing number of female celebrities with impeccable derrieres. It’s no surprise that thousands of women want to look like the superstars they follow on social media. Over 300,000 butt lifts were done worldwide in 2015, a 30 percent increase from the previous year. The numbers continue to grow.
The procedure is named after its founder, Ivo Pitanguy, a pioneer of Brazilian plastic surgery who is so revered that he carried the Olympic torch through Rio as it made its way around the globe in 2016. Brazil gets the “silver medal” of plastic surgery “Olympics,” scoring just behind the United States in the total number of people electing to have cosmetic surgery each year.
Female derrieres are part and parcel of Brazilian culture, featured in music and poetry during the past hundred years, and the fascination shows no signs of receding. With globalization, the rise of the internet, and social media that knows no geographic boundaries, women across the world now see perfect, round backsides on superstars onscreen, and they want their bottoms to look like that.
Have a consultation on the Brazilian butt lift
At your consultation with Dr. Angobaldo, he asks you about your goals. What do you want your bottom to look like? This helps him determine whether the butt lift is right for you.
Dr. Angobaldo takes photos and measurements of your bottom, which help him assess whether you have healthy skin tone in the area. That’s important, because the purpose of the butt lift isn’t to fix loose skin on your bottom after significant weight loss; the name is a misnomer. It does enhance the size and shape of your buttocks, but it’s an enhancement, not a complete redo of the bottom your genetics gave you. If you have a really flat bottom, you may benefit more from implants and a butt augmentation rather than the butt lift. Dr. Angobaldo also performs those.
You need to be in good health for the operation, because you won’t be able to sit down or sleep on your back for at least two weeks after the procedure, and you won’t be able to bear full weight on your buttocks and sit normally for up to eight weeks. The new fat injected into your bottom needs adequate blood flow to survive its transplant, and sitting down decreases blood to your buttocks.
An extra benefit of the Brazilian butt lift
The Brazilian butt lift really accomplishes two goals at once. Because Dr. Angobaldo needs to harvest fat from another body area, you can decrease the fat on your abdomen or other trouble spot at the same time as receiving the butt lift.
