It has been said that each of us is wonderfully made. Although some of us agree when looking in the mirror, most of us find some fault with our looks and tend to think that "wonderfully made" applies much more to certain other people. Let’s face the truth. Some of us are given more or less to work with regarding beauty or simple attractiveness and even body contours. We may complain about what heredity gave us to go through life, and we may not like unintentional changes that occurred over time due to aging, neglect, trauma, or injury. As a direct result, we may decide to make positive corrections and improvements to suit our needs, desires, and goals.
Some people who have abundant flesh and fat on the buttocks consider it a blessing and like the curves they see in the mirror. On the other side of things, some who lack sufficient eye-catching fat and curves in that area feel cursed and cheated; they desire a distinctive, abundant shape that will fill out their clothing and enhance their sex appeal. Most people of either gender believe that the partners they end up with will love them for who they are. In the meantime, however, women know that most men are instinctively drawn to the buttocks, for reasons that follow.
Our Solution: Brazilian Butt Lift — All-Natural and Safe
When humans evolved to walk upright we distinguished ourselves from animals by becoming the only creatures with buttocks; the more we walked, the more we developed those long, broad muscles in the buttocks that we call the gluteus maximus.
The female’s pelvis and buttocks usually can be distinguished easily from the male’s. Her pelvis is larger for childbearing, and her buttocks contain several times more adipose tissue. The resulting difference is clear in continuous curves that form a beautiful shape from her waist outward to her hips and downward into the roundness of fuller, projecting buttocks. Here, the male is even more aware of the buttocks’ nearness to the genitals, which can increase his arousal and make him more like male animals in wishing to procreate. Many females and males who lack the beauty and appeal of full buttocks desire to have the sensual attractiveness of fuller proportions. As your Orange County Plastic Surgeon, I can augment your buttocks to achieve this goal by using one of the following methods.
- Your own fat/tissue can be liposuctioned from an area of excess and injected into the appropriate area of the gluteal region (liposculpture) to create the desired fullness or “lift.”
- A combination of a Brazilian Butt Lift and implants. This combo, or only the implants/gluteoplasty, usually is for people who don't have enough fat for liposuction and transfer/injection to create the desired augmentation/lift; implants may be their only option.
The all-natural “lift” procedure is often referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift because Brazilian women have a reputation for being blessed with buttocks of excellent fullness and shape. Many plastic surgeons consider the lift to be ideal for augmentation because of its elevated level of safety.
With either method, equally careful contouring of the region completes the desired look. Depending on the degree of desired augmentation and the amount of available injected fat, you may opt for additional sessions of augmentation for your Orange County Brazilian Butt Lift. At the same time, lax musculature and loose skin can be repaired and tightened. The enhancement should look natural and contoured. As your Orange County Plastic Surgeon, I can also do this procedure to correct congenital or traumatic effects to the buttock region. It follows logically that the buttock augmentation in Orange County and the thighs must be made proportionate for a flowing and balanced look. As a result, liposuction of the thighs and/or of the back/flanks may be indicated to provide the best contour/silhouette. These techniques may be performed alone or as part of a Mommy Makeover along with, for example, a breast lift, a breast augmentation, or a tummy tuck to achieve an appearance of greater comparative proportion and overall rejuvenation.
Most of the time, a Brazilian Butt Lift or a combo procedure can be done on an outpatient basis. During your pre-op appointment, we will go over post-op do’s and don’ts with you again, and you may be instructed to wear a post-op compression garment. After you are taken home, you may use over-the-counter or prescribed oral pain medications, and you should have someone available to help you for a few days. Patients usually return to normal activities after recovering for 2-3 weeks. You will be impressed as you notice the enhanced contour right away! The final contour of your Brazilian Butt Lift in Orange County will usually continue to improve as the collagen and scar within the operated area mature during the phases of wound healing over the next 6-12 months.
