Brazilian Butt Lift Gaining Popularity in San Antonio

After airing on the Extreme Makeover television show several years ago, the Brazilian Butt Lift has gained in popularity. We've seen a big increase in interest from women in San Antonio.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves suctioning fat from other areas of the body, especially the hips, and after processing the fat, the fat is injected into the buttock area. The procedure works by narrowing the waist with the liposuction and increasing the buttock fullness.

About 50% of the fat survives and will become a part of the body. The procedure can be repeated several times depending on the ultimate size of the buttock the patient desires. The patients usually must have a moderate amount of fat on them otherwise a buttock implant has to be used. The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours depending on how much fat is removed and is done as an outpatient. Most patients can return to work in several days.

Other areas patients often select for liposuction are the abdomen, hips, thighs and back, and allow for nice body contouring of the mid to lower body. We are often able to obtain a beautiful hour glass shape where there was excess fat and little definition before. The results can be quite dramatic. The cases below are just a few of the women who have come to Dr. Young for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
