Every year, the annual statistics are released for cosmetic surgical treatments performed in the United States. From liposuction to breast augmentation and more, the numbers are gathered, tallied and released to the public. These statistics indicate the growing trends, and often, the shifts in cosmetic surgery requests. Given that the emphasis in the media on a more lifted, sculpted back side has become more and more popular over recent years, it comes as no surprise that buttock lifts skyrocketed in recent years. In fact, there were more than 20,000 of them performed in 2015 – a 32% increase over recent years!
Here at YOUnique Cosmetic Surgery, we are no strangers to the requests of buttock lift procedures. We perform what is called the Brazilian Butt Lift on our Los Angeles patients. So, what exactly is the procedure and what can it achieve?
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that uses a person’s own fatty tissue, as opposed to an artificial implant, to lift and sculpt the buttocks, resulting in a more rounded, contoured appearance. Because the fatty tissue is often obtained through liposuction of the stomach, love handle, thighs, etc. this also gives the patient the added benefit of body contouring in those donor areas. Another benefit to the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is the use of your own body substance, which results in a more natural look and a very low chance for complications during or after the procedure.
If you’re considering a buttock enhancement, a consultation with Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mark Youssef, is the best way to determine if you are a candidate and if the procedure will meet your goals. Contact us today to get started. We’re here to help your vision of your best self!
