Buttock Augmentation – Am I a Good Candidate?

Conveniently located in San Diego, CA

If you’re interested in buttock augmentation, you may be wondering if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. There are a number of factors that can influence a person’s candidacy for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL).

Enhancing Buttocks Size and Shape

The main factor to consider regarding whether a patient is a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift or not is if they want to enhance the size and shape of their buttocks. This procedure is a fantastic way to add volume to the area so that it can look bigger, plumper, and more defined.

Patients who are dissatisfied with their posteriors or consider them too flat will find the BBL to be an excellent cosmetic solution.

No Implants Needed

Patients who want to enhance their buttocks in a way that does not involve implants would be perfect candidates for a Brazilian butt lift. This is one of the main selling points of this procedure, since all it really needs is fat from donor areas like the abdomen and thighs. The results look and feel natural, and there is less of a chance of rejection, since the fat comes from the patients themselves.

Having Good Sources of Donor Fat

Since a Brazilian butt lift will involve harvesting fat from donor sites that are found on the patient’s body, patients must have good sources of excess fat. Candidates should have enough extra fat that can be used to inject into their butt to achieve the desired effects. Patients will learn if they have enough donor fat during the consultation.

Being in Good Health

It’s important for patients who want to get a Brazilian butt lift to be in good overall health. Being in poor health makes people more susceptible to complications during surgery. Patients must also not be undergoing any kind of critical treatment or currently recovering from a recent major surgery. This ensures that they can get the best results possible from the procedure and helps them heal faster during the recovery period.

Having Realistic Expectations

Good candidates for Brazilian butt lifts should have realistic expectations regarding the results of the procedure. While a lot can be achieved by the transfer of fat from donor sites into the target areas around the buttocks, this procedure is not meant to give patients unrealistically large posteriors.

Set Up a Consultation

To find out if they are good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift in San Diego, patients can schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark Mofid.
