“Who is a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift? Obviously, this procedure is also a shaping procedure because we sculpt the body and also we transfer the fat to the buttocks. So, if somebody’s morbidly obese or their BMI is very high, they may not be the candidate for this procedure. Also, if somebody’s very thin, and their BMI is very low, and they don’t have enough fat to be taken out, also are not candidates for this procedure. So, we would like to see the patient, evaluate the amount of fat that is available for transfer, and also to see if that torso area or the abdomen as well, has enough adequate fat to transfer to the buttocks or transfer anywhere else. We have several patients that come in for fat transfer into the breast or even into the face. So, we can place the fat into any area where the patient desires. Also, I get asked, is this fat going to last a long time or how long is that going to last? This is your own fat, and basically it’s like a graft, and we take it from one area, put it in a different area. So, it stays with you for the rest of your life. However, certain percentages of that fat will not establish good circulation and will die. Usually the national average is about 50-60%.”
