Brazilian Butt Lift (Buttock augmentation)

Even though breast implants are stills the most popular cosmetic surgery performed here at Dr Mario F. Bernier’s clinic; buttock augmentation is growing fast in popularity. Women have become very interested in « perfecting » the global shape of their body including their buttocks. One of the most sought cosmetic surgeries at this time is without a doubt the Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr Mario F. Bernier is a certified plastic surgeon who performs this highly requested operation in his clinic several times each year. Hollywood celebrities with help from the media proudly show off their magnificent curves. But what happens to patients wishing to refer to this surgery?

On one hand, we have young patients wishing to enhance the appearance, the roundness and shape of their buttocks. On the other, we have mature patients wanting a “lifted, rounder buttock look” or a balanced silhouette ratio between breast and buttocks

Surgery …

Two options are available for buttock volume increase. Silicone implants or a body fat transfer. Dr Mario F. Bernier uses the Brazilian Buttock Lift method. As suggested by its name, this surgical process originates from Brazil and the technique consists in surgically removing body lipids by liposuction (SAFELipo) from a suitable area and implanting the adipose cells into the desired section of the buttocks. When performed by a certified expert in the art of fat graft, this surgical technique gives outstanding natural looking results. The patient benefits from a 3D liposculpture of the body that accents the natural voluptuous curves and redefines the contour for perfect harmony of the body. This operation is performed under local anesthesia.

The Shape...

One of the most important aspects during the initial evaluation is the shape of the patient’s buttocks. Adequately evaluating the patient’s needs and objectives is crucial to determine the ideal technique. Dr Mario F. Bernier possesses the knowledge and expertise needed to complete this evaluation thus choosing the best approach.

We have established four main buttock categories according to their shape.
Square, round, “A” and “V” shaped.

Square shaped

Square shaped

Square shaped : Since square shaped buttocks show the same width from the waist to the hips, from a lateral view, they show a masculine flat look. Often these patients are unhappy with the appearance of their buttocks.

Round shaped

Round shaped

Round shaped : Patients having round buttocks present a balanced waist to hip ratio. Buttocks seem round and full bodied. Since there is too much fat concentrated in the same area, a disproportioned look with the rest of the body can appear.

« A » shaped (heart shape)

« A » shaped

« A » shaped (heart shape) : Considered by most patients as the prettiest and most desirable shape. This shape presents a smaller waist with hips slightly wider therefore approaching the ideal ratio.

« V » shaped

« V » shaped

« V » shaped : The waist is much wider than the hips and gives the impression that the buttocks have more volume at the top and are much narrower at the lower portion. The “V” shape is the less attractive shape and is surgically a much greater challenge. The body fat is essentially located at the waist and abdomen.

It is wrong to believe that it is only a question of volume. The truth is we must reduce the amount of adipose tissue around the buttocks to ensure that the buttocks become the central point of attraction.

The gluteal fold …

Defining the gluteal fold is of utmost importance to obtain perfect buttocks. The surgeon must determine where the fold begins end where it ends. Usually the gluteal fold should not exceed the mid portion of the buttock.

Defining…

Most women lack volume in the upper portion of the buttock, and this absence of volume is not compensated by increasing the volume through implants or fat grafting. This is the reason why an accomplished surgeon will dwell on this detail and remove the excess adipose tissue above this area. In this way, buttocks are well defined and we can clearly see where the back ends and where the buttocks begin.
