Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Right for Me? By Dr. Suzanne Yee on November 13, 2017

Woman with a shapely buttMost women want to have an “ideal” figure, but it can be hard to keep up with evolving beauty standards, and even harder to make those ideals a reality. A shapely butt tends to be one of those beauty standards that is difficult to achieve. When the butt maintains a flat or flabby shape despite hours at the gym, it may be time to consider plastic surgery.

The Brazilian butt lift provides patients with a fuller, shapelier backside that will enhance the overall figure and improve body contours. Plastic surgeon Suzanne Yee can meet with potential Brazilian butt lift candidates at her Little Rock, AR practice to let them know if this cosmetic procedure can help them meet their aesthetic goals.


Plastic surgery is all about addressing aesthetic flaws so that patients feel happier and more confident with their appearance. However, safety is always our first priority. Dr. Yee will never perform surgery if the patient is not an ideal candidate for the procedure. Prior to undergoing a Brazilian butt lift, the patient must demonstrate that she is in good overall health, emotionally prepared for surgery, and has realistic expectations for the results of treatment. If all of these standards are met, then we can look into whether or not a Brazilian butt lift is the right procedure to help the patient achieve her unique cosmetic goals.

A Brazilian butt lift is likely to be a good fit for patients who meet the following criteria:

  • The butt is small or flat: Size is the most common complaint when it comes to the appearance of the butt. A small, flat butt lacks shape and fails to fill out clothing. Many women believe that a flat butt takes away from their feminine appearance. A Brazilian butt lift is an ideal solution for a small, flat butt. During the Brazilian butt lift, fat cells are transferred to the area. A Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the backside and allows Dr. Yee to sculpt a shapelier bottom for the patient.
  • The butt is saggy: A butt that lacks volume also tends to lack definition. The Brazilian butt lift improves the shape of the butt and also gives it a more lifted appearance. The fat cells that are transferred are injected precisely to fill out the backside while also correcting any sagging that is present. This procedure can create a higher, firmer backside faster and more effectively than exercises like squats and lunges.
  • There is ample fat for harvesting: Most people wish that they could take the excess fat form one area of the body and move it to another. That is exactly what the Brazilian butt lift does. This procedure uses the patient’s own fat stores to increase the volume of the butt and improve its shape. However, the patient must have areas of the body where fat cells can be harvested. Typical areas for fat harvesting include the stomach, back, hips, and thighs.

Patients who are interested in enhancing their figure by improving the shape and lift of the butt should get in touch with Dr. Yee at their earliest convenience. A personalized consultation is the best way to determine if a Brazilian butt lift can provide the aesthetic results you are looking for.
