If you are looking to sculpt and reshape the buttocks for a more pleasing and sensual-looking physique, a Brazilian butt lift can help you to achieve your goals, providing a natural, elegant outcome. Fat is extracted from a donor area such as the thighs, belly, hips or waist, and then purified for injection into the buttocks.
Why consider a Brazilian butt lift?
During the Brazilian butt lift, liposuction is used to extract fat cells from places where it is unwanted, achieving the secondary goal of slimming the donor area. The fat is then injected into the buttocks to augment and round the area to your liking. Dr. Nadeau will ensure that the fat is evenly distributed between the two cheeks for a symmetrical outcome. Neither too much nor too little fat is transferred so that the results appear natural and elegant.
In some cases, the patient may lack the necessary donor fat in order to achieve a Brazilian butt lift with fat transfer. If this happens, Dr. Nadeau can provide some alternative treatments that can achieve the same goals, such as enhancement with a butt implant.
“I refer anyone I know to Dr. Nadeau. She was awesome from the first appointment and I got approved right away. Dr. Nadeau is an expert. Her team is awesome. You girls rock! High fives and my deep respect!” Patient
