Butt lift procedures, also known as butt augmentation, have soared in popularity in recent years, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. How popular are they? A cosmetic surgery aimed at lifting and reshaping the buttocks is conducted every 30 minutes in the United States, on average, and the Brazilian butt lift is tops on the list.
To try to take advantage of the high demand for Brazilian butt lift surgery, some surgeons who are not uniquely trained to conduct the procedure still offers it. For your safety and because the surgery has a higher complication rate compared with other cosmetic procedures, it’s very important to work with a qualified and experienced professional.

Beauty trends and Instagram
Research shows that exposure to beauty trends in the media, including social media, often play a significant role in one’s decision to opt for cosmetic procedures such as the Brazilian butt lift. Celebrity influencers such as Kim Kardashian, who sport voluptuous rear ends in photos, have contributed to the celebration and focus on larger, curvier bottoms and physiques.
Some people also attribute the popularity to greater acceptance of a wide range of ethnicities, as far as beauty standards go.
Because the Brazilian butt lift uses fat from other parts of your body to add mass to the buttocks, the results tend to look and feel more natural compared with implants. Some people prefer this because there may be less of a “she had work done” look as a result. If you don’t have enough fat to redistribute, however, the most natural-looking available implants can be used.
Less fat elsewhere
Fat transferred to the butt region during Brazilian butt lift procedures typically comes from your abdomen, thighs, back, or hip region. Many people love the fact that they can slim down in a certain “trouble spot” while enjoying a more curvaceous behind at the same time. It’s almost like having two procedures in one.
Improved body confidence
If your not-so-sizable behind is a source of self-consciousness, you might choose a Brazilian butt lift for a confidence boost. While it won’t address deeper underlying self-esteem issues, the procedure may help you feel more comfortable and confident in form-fitting clothing, such as bathing suits, tight jeans, or leggings.
You might also feel more confident about your body naked, making physical intimacy with a partner more enticing.
