Having an attractive and ample posterior is something that both men and women want. A flat, square-shaped behind can leave many of our patients wishing they could do something to change it. But even with a healthy diet and targeted exercise, some patients still can’t seem to get the rear end that they want. Which is exactly why many men and women have started looking into a procedure called a butt lift. Beverly Hills patients can completely reshape and sculpt not only their buttocks but also their entire figure. But how can patients know if a butt lift is right for them? This is a very serious question and one that many patients spend months and months pondering.

First Things First: What Is a Butt Lift?

Beverly Hills patients that have sagging skin on their buttocks or who are dissatisfied with the shape of their posterior should first understand what exactly a butt lift is.

  • Step 1 – During the butt lift procedure, Dr. Bruno uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas of the body. These areas commonly include the hips or love handle area, thighs, and abdomen. Dr. Bruno will also shape these areas using liposuction, so they are trimmer and tighter.
  • Step 2 – The next step is to process and sterilize the fat so that it can be injected into the buttocks.
  • Step 3 – Using the sterilized fat, Dr. Bruno will then inject it into the fat layer in the patient’s buttocks. Dr. Bruno will sculpt the buttocks to the patient’s desired shape.

Am I A Good Candidate for a Butt Lift?

Beverly Hills patients will need to have enough fat on their bodies for Dr. Bruno to use in the butt lift procedure. Generally (though this is not always the case) patients will need to have a body mass index (BMI) of 22 to get a butt lift. Check out our BMI calculator here to see if you’re a good candidate.

Patients will also need to be in good health since the procedure requires several weeks for recovery. If you’ve tried a healthy diet and regular targeted exercises to the buttocks but it hasn’t worked, this is another great sign you’re a good candidate for a butt lift. Beverly Hills patients that smoke should quit at least 2 weeks before their procedure. In fact, some surgeons won’t operate on patients that smoke because of the enormous risk it can pose to the results.

If you’re unhappy with your rear end and have tried to get the results you want with diet and exercise, call Dr. Bruno today. The best way to make sure that a butt lift is for you is to talk with Dr. Bruno about in person. We can’t wait to help you get started!
