Buttocks lipofilling or Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the most popular esthetic surgeries these days. It enhances the volume in a 100% natural way and also lifts the buttocks without any scar.
Combined with a complete liposuction, the body is reshaped (in a “S” shape) and the curves are enhanced with the patient’s own fat. There is thus no risk of rejection as there is no implant.
