What is Brazilian butt lift?

Brazilian butt lift means suctioning fats and injecting them into the buttocks to shape and enlarge the buttocks. Brazilian butt lift, as one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, transfers body fat to the buttocks. In this hip shaping method, liposuction first removes excess fat from a part of your body, especially your waist, lower back and thighs. Many patients take the opportunity to lose belly fat as well. After removing the fat, it is purified and injected into the buttocks. The result is a slimmer waist with fuller, more prominent hips. Your buttocks will feel and look more natural than silicone implants.
