Brazilian Butt Lift

A butt lift procedure helps lift the buttocks, add volume, and enhance shape. The technique uses fat transfer to give you a more natural feel and appearance. Dr. Ethridge will remove excess fat from another part of the body, harvest it, and layer the fat cells by injecting it into the buttocks. An added benefit with this technique is the liposuction on the side, above and below the buttocks which creates an even better contour for a more shapely appearance. Candidates for Brazilian Butt Lift surgery should be healthy, non-smokers with good skin elasticity. Patients should also have a realistic expectation about results and be able to understand risks and benefits involved.
