What's Trending in Miami? Butt Augmentation with Fat Grafting

If you haven't heard of a Brazilian butt lift (BBL), you need to find out what everyone is talking about and why they love their results.  

Glute enhancement surgery used to mean getting butt implants to improve the shape of your backside. In recent years, there is a new player in the cosmetic world called a Brazilian butt lift (BBL), and it is giving individuals in Miami fantastic results. Butt augmentation with fat grafting has become a popular choice due to its dual nature — a BBL provides 2-in-1 results. The first part of the procedure contours and reshapes the target area with liposuction, and part two uses the extracted, purified fat to add volume or shape to the buttocks. Butt augmentation with fat grafting is one of the fastest-growing procedures performed today, and Dr. LaGrasso is one of the leading experts in Miami who offers it. 

Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso is a board-certified plastic surgeon and one of the most highly regarded surgeons in the Miami area. Fat grafting procedures are on the rise in popularity and giving patients a more sculpted look. A Brazilian butt lift provides patients with a slimmer waist or thighs and a curvier derriere. If you are looking to lift your booty, a BBL may be the answer for you.

Enhancing your backside

Butt enhancements getting lots of buzz in Miami, FL, and throughout the country. Butt augmentation procedures have been around for decades, with individuals getting a curvier backside with butt implants, much like breast implants. Butt implants are silicone medical devices providing both women and men a fuller, rounder shape to their derrieres. In recent years, however, another cosmetic treatment has taken over as the most desirable butt enhancement. The Brazilian butt lift provides a more natural way to give your buttocks a shapelier, sexier look. 

Cost of a butt augmentation

As with most cosmetic procedures, health insurance plans do not cover a BBL or implants. Costs vary by plastic surgeon and region, but the average cost of a Brazilian butt lift is about $4,300, according to a 2018 report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That average fee doesn't include anesthesia, operating room costs, and other miscellaneous expenses. A qualified plastic surgeon bases their fees on their experience, geographic location, and the type of procedure being performed. When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area, make sure you feel comfortable with their personality and confident about their experience and qualifications. These factors are just as important as the cost of the procedure.

Why you might want a BBL

Women and men in Miami considering butt augmentation have specific aesthetic goals they would like to achieve. A board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. LaGrasso can help. Both women and men inherit certain traits that determine the shape of their buttocks and in general, their overall body type. Regular exercise and a healthy diet can help, but to some degree, your genetics play a major role in how your butt looks. The natural process of getting older also changes the aesthetic look of your glutes. As individuals enter into their late 30s or 40s, muscle mass starts to weaken, and skin elasticity begins to lessen. Women, in particular, may begin to notice more fatty tissue accumulating in areas like the hips and their butt starts losing its shape. 

The shape of it all

Everyone has a different body type: rectangle or square, pear-shaped, or the coveted "hourglass" shape. The same holds true for the shape of everyone's buttocks. Before considering a BBL procedure, think about your butt type and the changes you’d like to see. 

  • An "A" shape, also called the upside-down heart, is generally considered the sexiest shape for women. As they age, women with this type of backside usually start to see more weight in their waist and hips while losing volume in their buttocks. 
  • A round butt or "bubble butt" is another popular shape, yet patients with a round butt struggle to keep the overall look or symmetrical shape as they get older. 
  • A "V" shape, also known as an inverted shape, encompasses patients with a broad waist or midsection and small buttocks.
  • A square butt or "H" shape describes individuals with a rectangular body type, so their butt is the same size as their hips. Square butts are more difficult to reshape with exercise and usually remain flat in appearance. 

Unsure what shape you are, and don’t know what a BBL procedure can do for you? Working closely with a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso will ensure you get the right BBL enhancement to improve the overall shape of your backside.

The BBL difference

A Brazilian butt lift offers patients in the Miami area a more natural way to add shape and volume to their buttocks by using their own excess fat. In most cases, men extract unwanted fat from their midsection or "love handle" area, while women generally look to reshape and contour their hips, thighs, or stomach area. Although a BBL involves two types of cosmetic procedures, it requires smaller incisions and is less invasive than butt implants, so patients experience less downtime and a quicker recovery.
