The Brazilian buttlift is actually a fat transfer procedure to improve the size and shape of your buttocks, which are largely determined by genetics, without implant surgery. Dr. Crichlow removes excess fat from your hips, abdomen, lower back or thighs using liposuction, then strategically injects a portion of this fat into your buttocks with the skill of a master sculptor to create the most pleasing shape and profile, typically fuller and rounder. The procedure can also reshape the hips, low back and thighs. A good candidate for Brazilian buttlift has sufficient fat stores in other areas that can be harvested. Super-thin or lean individuals may require buttock implants to achieve the size and shape they desire. Implants generally look and feel less natural, and there is a greater likelihood of infection or complications.
