You may be wondering if the Brazilian butt lift is right for you. Here are some of the main benefits that it offers:

Many women have a hard time eliminating fat from key areas of their body including the abdomen, back, and hips. With a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Steinbrech will remove target fat deposits from one or multiple areas of the body through the process of liposuction and then transfer it to another location. It’s a win-win situation because fat is removed from the areas where you don’t want it to areas where you do.
2. Safe buttocks enhancement.
In previous years, when someone wanted to enhance their buttocks, surgeons would either use implants or silicone injections. Today, the Brazilian butt lift surgery uses the patient’s own natural fat deposits, which makes the overall procedure and results much safer. Because the patient’s own fat is utilized, instead of using an unsafe foreign object, both the risk of rejection and infection is considerably lower.
