Volumize and Tone Your Buttocks With a Brazilian Butt Lift

If you are one of the many women who feel dissatisfied with the changes in your physique due to the aging process, pregnancy or poor genetics, board-certified Baltimore plastic surgeon Dr. Shermak can provide powerful improvement with a Brazilian butt lift in Maryland through her proven skill in the field of body contouring. Like many other parts of the body, the rear end may sag and fall flat with advancing years, detracting from one’s femininity, making clothes fit poorly, and lowering overall self-confidence.

A Brazilian butt lift can help volumize and tone the buttocks in a way that is difficult to achieve with exercise alone. The results range from improved proportions in women seeking torso rejuvenation and proportionate improvement to a more voluptuous, well-endowed silhouette that is common among many cherished female celebrities. An enhanced posterior can provide a youthful aesthetic and increase one’s attractiveness in swimwear and evening wear.

Two methods of augmentation

Brazilian Butt Lift Maryland

While the buttock region can be augmented with a surgical implant, a Brazilian butt lift is actually performed with a more organic process known as fat transfer, during which fat from another area of the client’s body such as the back, hips, stomach or thighs is purified and injected into the buttocks.

One benefit of the fat transfer process is that it tones and slims the donor area in addition to augmenting the buttocks, improving at least 2 body regions at once.

Fat grafting buttock augmentation must be performed by a board certified plastic surgeon with experience and safety foremost in her mind. This is the reason Dr. Shermak’s patients do so well and are so satisfied with their results.

Dr. Shermak is well-versed in both techniques. She will help to determine which enhancement method is right for your goals and individual anatomy during your confidential Brazilian butt lift consultation at her Baltimore, Maryland offices.

She will then purify these cells, preparing them to be injected into the buttocks. Once the fat has been transferred, she will carefully reshape the rear end to ensure it appears natural and beautiful, as well as proportionate to the rest of the torso.

What will my results be like?

Since every individual is different, there will be variation in the results obtained. However, most clients find that they can see improvement immediately and can start enjoying their profile within a few weeks of recovery. As time passes, the majority of the swelling will abate, with final results visible around 2-4 months after surgery.
