The Perfect Body and Cultural Perceptions


shutterstock_76782826For Americans the “perfect body” includes big breasts, a small waist, a sexy butt and being fat free…for men and women. Europeans are obsessed with being dimple free…no cellulite period!  Asians prefer smaller breasts and butts but demand long, slim legs. Brazilians gave us the Brazilian ButtLift…curvy buttocks and also voluptuous Big Breasts. Perceptions vary between countries.

US CLOTHING and SOCIETY influences the plastic surgery trend. 1)  Cleavage baring tops (shirts, blouses etc) are a primary factor in breast surgeries.  2) Curvaceous butts thighs sought by American celebrities forced the surge in “Brazilian Butt Lifts”.  First Lady Michelle Obama’s Arm Lift became an inspiration for women of all colors to get their arms toned and in shape with Arm Lift surgery.

TOP SURGERIES WORLDWIDE  Breast Implants,  Leg Refining ProceduresButt AugmentationsCellulite reduction.  In 2011, Mexico led the charge among the top 5 countries worldwide with 800,000 cosmetic procedures.  America led the way with the obsession for “bigger is better” breasts and the most Breast Augmentations (Http://www.davinciplastic.com.).  Younger women want more on top while mature women and post pregnancy Moms want restored fullness.  The Best Butt for American Jeans is  the Braziliain Butt Lift and their trend for a perfectly proportioned backside with curves in all the right places!  American women love it and proved it with a 60% increase in Butt Augmentations during 2012, using their own body fat and Implants to achieve the right size and shape buttocks.

PERFECT BODY... Americans are obsessed with the breasts and being fat free..a narrow waist.  Breast Augmentations, Liposuction with Fat Grafting/Transplanting and Butt Augmentations have been the top choices for a few years now.  Men are also into sexier, fuller butts and get Butt Augmentations to fill out their pants.

EUROPEAN OBSESSIONS are about “NO CELLULITE…Period!”  All Europeans want to be dimple free with a natural looking body that looks as if it could be had easily with a healthy diet and a steady workout regimen. Many of the world’s top cosmetic procedures are born in Europe and after being proven they migrate to other places like the US.

ASIANS SEEK SLIM, TRIM, PETITE AESTHETICS   South Korea ranks #7 for women having plastic surgery before age 50, during 2011.  Their #1 obsession is super skinny, bulk free legs (Radish Legs). They clamor for long slim calves void of heavy looking muscles.  Small Breasts is their other ideal.  If they choose breast enlargement, they want only miniscule increase in size.  Breast implants, however are seeing a major advancement in Japan for reconstructive surgeries, a challenge that Japanese surgeons are overcoming as they get up to speed on the products and procedures.

BRAZILIAN SHAPE = CURVY + VOLUPTUOUS…Brazil’s #1 obsession is Full Perky Breasts and perfectly round buttocks.  They are obsessed with plastic surgery to make sure they have curves in all the right places by having Butt implants and fat augmentation  as well as large breast implants and breast lifts.  Many Brazilian women are naturally blessed with all the curves they desire, but plastic surgery is a major trend for those who are not so blessed.  My website educates you on all these procedures and many more that I offer: http://www.davinciplastic.com.

Better Butt Lifts…with Liposculpting and Living Cell Fat Grafting


BUTTOCKS AUGMENTATION, more commonly called “Butt Lifts” is one of today’s most “in demand” procedures as people of various ages, stages and ethnicities are demanding “ideal buttocks.”  You’ve probably heard of the most popular one….the Brazilian Butt Lift which is the Butt Lift of choice by many ethnic groups.

The important thing to know about today’s butt lift augmentation is that each culture has their own ethnic ideals for shape and size.

Here’s a basic overview of why people want butt lifts and what’s involved for butt lifts anywhere:

  • People get butt lifts because they want tighter, better, more lifted buttocks
  • There are various ways to accomplish a great butt lift
  • Liposuction is typically part of a butt lift procedure
  • LIPO involves extracting living fat cells from an area of abundance, treating these cells and then meticulously transplanting (by injection) them into designated areas of the buttocks
  • Liposuction offers these benefits:
  • 1) the harvest area is sculpted…take the fat from a waistline and sculpt a new waist at the same time
  •  2) the transplant area gets increased volume, enhanced shape and size, long lasting (permanent) results…
  • 3) a more natural look and feel because your own fat cells are readily accepted by your body
  • Some people choose implants over fat transfer…or a combination of implants and fat grafting
  • I use a delicate cannula (collection tube) that selects “ideal sized” fat particles
  • These fat cells can be used to do just certain areas…or to do the whole butt
  • Fat cell grafting requires great skill and refined techniques to get the desired results
  • The most effective Technique involves knowing how much fat to use…not too much and not too little and where to use it
  • Sitting on buttocks following a butt lift procedure does not affect the staying power of the grafted fat cells….if the procedure is done correctly by an expert

Fat Grafting uses your own living cells.  When done correctly, by an expert, these cells live and thrive permanently in the grafted areas and the area from which the fat is taken…can easily be “sculpted”…so you are getting a “two for one” deal.

TRAINING, SKILL, EXPERIENCE…these are critical factors when choosing a surgeon to do your buttocks augmentation (butt lift).  Choose wisely and know what you are getting.

HOLIDAYS ARE FAST APPROACHING…patients are coming in for a myriad of anti aging treatments.  See my website for complete info on the vast array of age defying options I offer.  Go to:http://www.davinceplastic.com.

WHO GET’S A BUTT LIFT?   men and women  of any ethnicity, who are unhappy with the size and shape of their buttocks, who have an ideal buttocks in mind, who are in good general health and able to have realistic expectations.  This includes mommies, grandmothers, brides and grooms (yes men get them too), models, celebrities, teachers, anyone….who wants a better, fuller, tighter more youthful, more uplifted butt.

WHERE DO WE PERFORM  BUTT LIFTS?  a butt lift augmentation with liposuction and fat grafting and/or implants is an office procedure that requires little to no downtime. Some swelling, tenderness and bruising is common…then you feel totally normal once this is resolved.  Sensation and feeling return to normal after swelling has resolved.

OK…my goal is always to get results that are functional and look as natural as possible. I’ve been achieving that goal successfully for years and years.

Come in an let’s see what you want to do in order to look and feel your best…for the Holidays and everyday!
