NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK – Most women (and men) would agree that curves on women are flattering – especially when they are in all the right places. But what if yours aren’t?
With the help of a plastic surgeon and key procedures like a breast lift and Brazilian butt lift, your curves can be “relocated” to perkier, sexier positions, in – get this – a single day.
Brazilian butt lift: More than a raise for your rear
The Brazilian butt lift repositions and reshapes the buttocks by injecting your own, processed fat – harvested through liposuction – into your buttock.
“This is where it is pays to have preexisting curves – even if they are in the wrong places,” says Dr. Elliot Heller, a NYC liposuction expert. “If a patient is extremely thin, she will either be advised to gain weight in a healthy manner or opt for butt implants. What’s nice about gaining weight or having a little excess fat to begin with is that it allows us to enhance your results with targeted contouring via liposuction.”
Fat is generally harvested from areas around the buttocks such as the midsection, lower back, hips, thighs and love handles. The patient’s body type and desired results help to determine where the majority of fat will be harvested.
If you have an apple-shaped figure, which is characterized by fat accumulation isolated to your midsection, fat will be harvested from your tummy, lower back and love handles to whittle your waist.
Women who gain weight mostly in their lower half (pear shaped) will benefit most from liposuction of their hips and thighs.
Once an appropriate amount of fat has been harvested, it is processed and artfully reinjected into the buttocks with specialized cannulas. The cannulas not only allow for optimal control of fat placement, but also dramatically reduce the risk for infection since the procedure is closed.
It’s important to seek a consultation with a plastic surgeon in NY if interested in a Brazilian butt lift since, as mentioned earlier, he or she may want you to lose or gain a certain amount of weight to ensure that the procedure is feasible and your results are optimal.
What about the girls?
Chances are, if you have curves in all the wrong places they aren’t only isolated to your lower half, but your upper half as well. Yes, we are talking about the girls – your breasts. If you have ample sized breasts, the saying “the bigger they are, the harder they fall” probably hits close to home.
“Larger breast are more apt to sag,” says Dr. Heller. “While they may look good in a bra, they are more often a source of insecurity than pride.”
A breast lift is a procedure that uses a surgical incision to raise and reshape the breasts.
There are several types of breast lift techniques/procedures that can be used to:
• Lift and maintain breast size
• Lift and reduce breast size
• Lift and increase breast size
Depending on the condition of your breasts and the results you desire, your surgeon will determine the appropriate technique to use.
One aspect of a breast lift that shouldn’t be overlooked is scarring. Even though surgeons take care to place incisions in areas that make scarring less visible, because the incisions are made on the breast, some level of scarring will remain. However, the dramatic improvement is worth the sacrifice of a minor scar or two.
