 Why the Brazilian Butt Lift Has Such a High Satisfaction Rate
It’s frustrating to attend to your diet and spend hours in the gym but fail to get the look you want. You put in the energy and effort but don’t get the results. There’s another way, and it tends to leave people very satisfied.

For some people, choosing to have cosmetic surgery is a relief after years of frustration. The Brazilian butt lift is an example of the kind of procedure Dr. Stephen Chen’s patients are almost always very pleased with.

Sometimes, no matter how many hours you spend squatting and deadlifting, counting macros, and generally doing everything recommended to get a particular shape, it just doesn’t happen. Mostly, it comes down to genetics. Dr. Chen and his team can help you achieve your goal with fat transfer.

Get the curves you want

The medical name for a Brazilin butt lift is autologous fat transfer, which means that Dr. Chen removes fat from specific areas of your body — where you likely don’t want it — and places it on your buttocks. “Autologous” means the fat comes from your own body, and “transfer” means moving it to a different location.

For example, Dr. Chen may use liposuction to remove fat from your abdomen and transfer it to your hips or buttocks. This transfer gives you the shape and contour you’ve likely worked to have for years. Getting curves where you want them is a good feeling!

Understanding the process

It’s important for you to know that not all of the fat cells survive being transferred. You don’t have your procedure on Tuesday and see your final results on Wednesday. You need time to heal and for the transferred fat to thrive in its new location.

After healing, your immediate results may seem fuller than you want. Once your body reabsorbs the fat that doesn’t survive, you’ll be able to see how well the procedure worked. That typically takes about six months.

Once you’ve reached that milestone, you can expect your results to last for many years. You’ll want to maintain a stable weight, as weight fluctuation can affect your new shape. 

Satisfaction relates to surgeon skill 

Brazilian butt lifts are safe as long as your surgeon has deep expertise and understands the underlying principles. Dr. Chen is board certified, experienced, and has the skill and talent to understand where it’ll work best to remove fat and inject it. He also has training in techniques that result in less tissue trauma so that you heal more quickly and more fat survives the transfer. 

One of the reasons that satisfaction rates among people who have had a Brazilian butt lift are so high is related to the skill of the surgeon. When your procedure is performed by someone who is an expert, like Dr. Chen, you’re much more likely to be happy with the results. 

If you’re ready to learn more, schedule an appointment to discuss your situation with Dr. Chen. He can explain whether or not you’re a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, what you need to know about the procedure, and help you understand what your results will look like.
