CosmeticVacations, a US medical tourism operator based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has announced a partnership with Dr. Eneas Cortes, a Brazilian leading plastic surgeon specializing in buttock surgery.
Cortes is a titular member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery and visiting professor at Hospital Ipiranga in São Paulo, where he holds the position of Chief of Surgery.
The Brazilian plastic surgeon Cortes has contributed to several professional publications, national and international, on the subject of cosmetic surgery.
Few would argue that the Brazilian derrière has become the global standard against which all others are measured. In a nation of close to 190 million; perfectly round, shapely butts proliferate.
The explanation for this phenomenon lies in the diversity of the Brazilian gene pool. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the northern Brazilian state of Bahia saw the arrival of more African slaves than did the entire United States.
The blend of these shapely African rear-ends with the lean Anglo-Saxon form found in the south of Brazil gave rise to the modern day bumbum – Brazilian slang for butt.
The Brazilian shape is admired universally; few deny that such sensuous curves give women charm, elegance and graceful beauty.
"There are also the psychological advantages of increased self confidence and higher self-esteem that come from one’s new look," says Dr. Cortes.
"The two most sought after buttock surgery procedures are Micro Fat Grafting and Buttock Implants," says Peter Ryan, Director and Founder of Cosmetic Vacations.
Micro Fat Grafting, commonly referred to as lipo-sculpture, involves repositioning fat removed from one body area to the buttocks – significantly increasing the gluteal volume.
"However, nothing compares to an implant, which produces a defined volume and, most importantly, an almost perfectly predictable and permanent result," comments Dr. Cortes.
Thanks to J-Lo, gluteal or butt implant surgeries appear to be on the rise, and statistics from ASAPS show that 3,885 of the procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2003 — that’s up 533% since 2002.
"Soaring healthcare costs in America and Europe motivate clients to look abroad for more reasonably priced Cosmetic Surgery," says Ryan. Highly specialized Buttock surgery is performed by only a handful of surgeons in the US – consequently prices are steep.
CosmeticVacations clients travel to Brazil for high quality treatment and care, plus to enjoy time in Rio de Janeiro – one of the world’s most charming, breathtakingly beautiful locations.
