Can a Brazilian butt lift improve a V-shaped butt?

My butt has the most unattractive form, being wider at the top and more narrow at the bottom. It took me a while until I realized what's wrong with it. Most women have a nice, round butt, while I'm stuck with this one. Can a Brazilian butt lift do something about the shape? I'm asking because adding fat may accentuate the above mentioned feature that I don't like.

A V-shaped butt can develop in older women as their estrogen production decreases and fat becomes concentrated around their midsection rather than their buttocks.

A V-shaped butt can certainly be improved by a Brazilian butt lift; the key is to remove fat from the flanks and upper portion of the buttocks and re-distribute it to the cheeks to create roundness and curves.

Excess fat is extracted through liposuction, which is taken from strategic areas around the gluteal region to provide contouring. The fat is then filtered so only healthy fat cells remain, and injected back into the buttocks beneath the subcutaneous tissue in a careful manner to build the desired butt shape.

To be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, you need to be able to provide sufficient fat from donor sites on the body. Approximately 800 cubic centimeters is required at least, as not all the transferred fat will survive. Women seeking more impressive results require 1200-1500cc of fat. Schedule a consultation with a plastic surgeon to learn how the BBL could help you transform your butt type into a rounder butt.

A woman's butt shape is determined by the location of the hip bones and pelvis, fat storage across the buttocks, the size of the gluteal muscles and the way the butt muscles attach to the thigh bones.

The outcome of these factors is one of five different shapes: square shape, A-shaped, round, V-shaped, or upside-down heart-shaped (A-shaped butt).  A V-shaped butt is typically a flat butt, and often tapers downwards due to smaller or underdeveloped glute muscles.

Brazilian butt lifts are extremely popular at present because the procedure can dramatically change the shape of the buttocks, transforming it to meet the patient's desires. For women who have sufficient fat to harvest elsewhere on the body, a BBL can turn a V-shaped butt into a round butt or even a bubble butt.

In the case of a V-shaped butt, the BBL would remove excess fat from the love handles and redistribute it across the butt cheeks to create a round or heart-shaped butt, which are commonly thought to be the most attractively shaped bottoms.

Bear in mind that BBL surgery requires a rather long recovery period two weeks of downtime with no sitting on the butt, and an additional four weeks of sitting on a customized cushion after that. Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn if the procedure is right for you.

If your butt looks v-shaped, it may be due to skeletal structure: the line between the pelvis and hips may angle inwards. No workout plan or resistance band can change bone structure, however, a redistribution of fat can significantly create volume and contour the butt so you achieve the perfect butt you've been looking for.

A Brazilian butt lift is a highly effective procedure for transforming a V-shaped butt into a rounder butt shape. It  redistributes fat to contour the buttocks into a more pleasing silhouette. The surgery can be divided into two parts: firstly, fat is extracted from donor sites on your own body to provide contouring.

Fat may be taken from the waistline, flanks, outer thighs or even the arms. The fat is then cleaned and filtered so only the healthiest fat cells are grafted into the buttocks through injections.

For a Brazilian butt lift to be successful, you must have sufficient fat to harvest. Approximately 70% of the grafted fat survives, so there must be ample fat available to significantly transform your butt into the shape you desire. For patients with insufficient fat deposits, butt implants represent another option for gaining a bigger butt.

Careful liposculpture of your buttocks, with placement of fat where you need it and suction of frat from where you don't want it will help you achieve your goal of a plumper, rounder bottom.
