What is Brazilian Butt Lift?

V-Shape: The hips are full and they get narrow as they reach the bottom.
Square: Hips with a flat overall appearance and a small amount of fat. It is not wrong to say that this is the most difficult hip type to be shaped because of these features. Generally, multiple fat transfer surgeries may be needed to shape this hip type.
Round: Hips that are full-bodied and appear round.
