With the ocean on one side and the Everglades on the other we live in one of the most unique and fragile ecosystems on the globe. I ve come to appreciate our semitropical climate and spent a couple of decades trying to develop a yard that s eco-friendly. That includes providing water sources for wildlife host plants for butterflies minimizing fertilizer use employing drip irrigation and using mulch instead of water gulping grass. One of the biggest trends in green is how green practices can save money. The Broken Sound Club in Boca Raton is O green showing the way by becoming the second golf facility in the U.S. and only the 14th globally to be certified by the non-profit Golf Environment Organization. The club has an array of eco-friendly and money-saving practices ranging from biodegradable cups advanced recycling energy efficient light bulbs and solar panels to heat water for the pool and general use.

Faber A Shrine to Jazz When it comes to the appreciation of pure jazz ........ 18 WWW.LIFEPUBS.COM BOCA DELRAY LIFE APRIL 2014 ..............................nothing comes close to Boca Raton s Jazziz Jazziz Nightlife 201 Plaza Real Boca Raton 561.300.0730 A pril is Jazz Appreciation Month so it s only appropriate that some appreciation be given to Jazziz the only club in Palm Beach County or Broward County for that matter that is entirely devoted to a genre of music that is entirely American. Having originated at the beginning of the 20th Century in the Southern United States notably within the African-American communities jazz is now far more mainstream incorporating elements from American pop music. Nonetheless jazz with its use of blue notes improvisation polyrhythms and syncopation remains a unique sound. And there is no place better to hear it than at Jazziz in Boca Raton. Just shy of a year old Jazziz is the brainchild of Dr. Michael Fagien who pursued a medical career to pay the bills while founding the premiere magazine about the music he loved. With the financial backing of his partner Dr. Robert Cade (the inventor of Gatorade) Fagien founded Jazziz Magazine in 1983. Today Jazziz publishes a print version quarterly and a monthly version digitally. Among other things Jazziz was the first magazine to package a CD inside. Fagien also started a record label with famed jazz guitarist Lee Ritenour which generated a best-selling album A Twist of Jobim which Ritenour and others will be reprising this month at the Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center in Miami. Since then Fagien has taken his love of the genre to the next level with the Jazziz Nightlife restaurant at Mizner Park. Jazziz is one of those places that simply has to exist. It is such a needed part of the cultural scene of South Palm Beach and Northern Broward counties that it s hard to imagine that it hasn t always been there. And when it comes to jazz music this is the real deal. During the weeknights Jazziz books some of the biggest names in the Jazz world those of the Jason Marsalis Lee Ritenour or Kyle Eastwood level or local legends like Nicole Henry. On the weekends the bands are not as well known but still solid pricing reflects the shift with tickets (typically 25 to 65) required for weekday headliners but not for the weekend bands. Beyond the music itself Jazziz exudes the feeling of a real nightclub the type of place you d only come across in New York or Chicago. The tables are covered with white linen and all have good views of the elevated stage which is backed by a red velvet curtain. The walls are adorned with huge images of jazz greats like Dave Brubeck Miles Davis and Billie Holiday. The d cor is modern wood paneling with wooden chandeliers. The kitchen is open but disappears behind a heavy black curtain when the music starts. The food is not to be ignored either. Executive chef Justin Flit who worked for Chef Oliver Saucy at Caf Maxx in Pompano and attended the French Culinary Institute in New York does a great job with scallops salmon and beef along with an exceptional duck breast and a super slow braised veal osso bucco. (Entr es run 21 to 35 and steaks run 35 to 48 with one 18 oz. ribeye for the famished at 59). If you are lucky Dr. Fagien will introduce the headliners and share a few anecdotes with you before the music begins. Regardless as he puts it This is the best club in the world for what we do. Play on doctor.

They do little to hide their rivalry on or off the field but this does not diminish their respect for each other or their desire to help their community. This year both soccer associations ran TOPSoccer programs for special-needs players. GBYSA s program is in its third season while this is the inaugural year for SABR s TOPSoccer program with an impressive 185 participants. And one thing that both programs agree on is what makes the programs work the buddies that help the special-needs players develop.

Majhess began his civic career when he filed to run for city council. He has since maintained his seat against various opposition and has been opposed to high-density development and increasing city fees. Haynie s own civic career spans over a decade with 12 years on the city council as well as serving on other city boards Mayor Susan Whelchel including the Planning and Zoning Board. In a final vote of 6 250 to 4 716 votes in favor of Haynie current Mayor Susan Whelchel formally handed over the reins at the March 31 ceremony. I am so thankful that the voters have spoken and they have chosen my leadership Haynie shared at her victory party. Mayor Whelchel had her farewell party at Boca Raton Marriott that also acted as a fundraiser for the Spirit of Giving Network an organization Whelchel has long supported. Susan Whelchel was one of the 11 women who founded the holiday gift drive 11 years ago and the founders have remained involved as the project had grown from 600 to 4 000 children says Karen Krumholtz executive director of the Spirit of Giving Network. With Whelchel s huge support of nonprofits it was a natural fit for her farewell.

Here are their collective first impressions. Delivering the group s reaction to the novel is Eileen Reiback who leads the book discussions at the Northwest Regional Library in Coral Springs. In Your Own Words This is a collection of literary short stories by a Nobel Prize-winning Canadian author. The stories are about ordinary people whose everyday decisions take their lives in unexpected directions. The last four stories are semi-autobiographical sketches from the author s youth. First Impressions Some members were uncomfortable with the short story genre which jumps into a slice of life with no beginning or ending. It left those readers unsympathetic with the characters. In other cases members found the writing beautifully crafted capturing the essence of a character or situation in a short number of pages. Many complained that the stories ended abruptly leaving the reader wanting more explanation or closure. Favorite Part Several stories had a twist at the end such as In Sight of the Lake and Corrie. Lessons Learned This was the first Alice Munro story collection I ve read and it will probably be the last. I was disappointed especially considering that she has won many prizes and accolades for her stories. Men were often depicted as manipulative and women as weak and indecisive. Sometimes it was difficult to determine the motives of the characters. The collection was only rated an average of three out of five stars by members of the group so it was not one of our most-enjoyed books. WWW.LIFEPUBS.COM 25 Garbage Patches display Ocean Bound New exhibit shows the importance of water The Children s Science Explorium at Sugar Sand Park has opened a new exhibit demonstrating how water travels from mountain to sea showing the threats to water such as pollution and presenting the choices a person is confronted with regarding conservation. Almost 20 interactive displays detail a particular problem and possible ways to prevent such situations. I think it gets you to understand in a subtle way the message that we are responsible for the environment says Explorium exhibit coordinator Chip Robelin. The exhibit has displays presenting problems we face with hydro-pollution such as Chemical Diagnosis an enclosed display containing millions of beads that can be spun clockwise or counter-clockwise. The challenge is to spot the one red bead that represents a pollutant among the millions of black beads that represent water. The most thrilling and highly interactive part of the exhibit is the Underwater Adventure You can sit inside the station as a submarine captain amid three screens Flow and Settle display as you steer your way through five different water-based ecosystems. The experience truly immerses you in the environments with sound and light effects. You actually guide a high-definition video. It s like navigating a submarine Robelin shares. The purpose of the exhibit is get both kids and their families to interact with displays both physically and mentally and think about the environment. You will follow the journey of water from the mountains to the ocean and all the trouble it can get into mostly caused by people Robelin says. Ocean Bound is currently open and runs through May 4.

Ulcerative Colitis David s wife Beth did most of the talking looking at him you could see why. He was as pale as a sheet. Dr. Woliner the last year has been horrible with Dave being hospitalized twice. The last time his hemoglobin got down to ... 8.3. My gastroenterologist says my colitis is the worst he s ever seen. He says I need surgery to remove the whole thing. My colleague Dr. Mark Hyman calls Functional Medicine doctors such as myself resort doctors as we are often the doctor of last resort. 1 It seems your case is no exception. Tell me more. Lots of mucous and blood. Dave can hardly leave the bathroom much less get out of the house to work. And mouth ulcers. I can t eat but that s mostly due to the severe belly cramps. I ve lost 25 pounds in the last 3 weeks. I looked over his medication list. Asacol Prednisone Prilosec Pepcid Zofran Donnatal Iron tablets B12 ... They ever try you on a biologic drug such as Remicade 2 That was my GI doctor s last hope but I got Serum Sickness with fever. 3 Beth interrupted Those TV commercials say all those side effects so quickly. You don t think you ll get them until you ve already got them. After I did my physical exam I laid it out straight. You re sick enough that I want to admit you to the hospital today. Not for surgery but for intensive nutritional therapy. However there are no guarantees and if I can t turn things around surgery is still an option. What do you have in mind I ll fax in admitting orders so you can bypass the ER. Don t expect to eat anything as food allergies are one cause of colitis.4 Fortunately because I was a Nutrition major at Cornell I learned how to prescribe TPN correctly. TPN Oh that s an abbreviation for feeding you by IV. You re severely malnourished and that is why you re still anemic despite the iron and vitamins. Dr. Viteri taught me that patients such as you need up to 280 grams of protein per day 5 What else I ll run some tests for food allergies as well as vitamin and essential fatty acid deficiencies.6 I am vice-chair of the Continuing Medical Education (CME) committee of the hospital and we ve done a pretty good job of educating the pharmacy of why patients need the right supplements. Probiotics for example you ll need lots of them. We already tried that. No. I m talking mega-doses. 900 billion live bacteria per day 7 We re going to hit this hard. David s admission labs showed him severely anemic with a Hemoglobin level of only 5.1. I had to transfuse 4 units of blood but the combination of mainstream drugs (steroids and antibiotics) and nutritional therapy did bring David s colitis under control.8 Still it took close to 3 weeks before he was stable enough to be discharged. He was eating food again (minus the half-dozen foods he was allergic to) and was still on Asacol but he avoided a colectomy (surgery) or a colostomy bag. Beth who is now also a patient of mine came to see me eight months after I first met David. The good news is that he s back at work and only rarely takes Prednisone when he feels a flare coming on. The only bad thing is that he has now put on the pounds especially with the holidays. When you see him next can you talk to him about that We are trying to avoid surgery. Food allergies are one cause of colitis. REFERENCES 1. 1. Hyman MA. The Biggest Medical Discovery of Our Lifetimes Finding the Cure for Chronic Disease. Huffington Post.

She is the owner of Woodmont Travel located at Boca Express Travel 8177 Glades Road Suite 14 Boca Raton and can be reached by calling gently rocking ship shops restaurants activities galore and all the luxe life you can stand Many of us have enjoyed vacations by sea yet others still dream of trying it out. AMA Waterways that travelers wanted a new level of European travel where they could visit different cities without having to pack and unpack to move around and sightsee in those amazing little towns dream vacations are made of. However the executives at AMA Waterways as well as Avalon Waterways Uniworld Boutique River Cruising and Viking River to mention a few can tell you they are catering more to the big ship ocean cruisers who have grown to love the experience of traveling around on their floating hotel and visiting multiple destinations on one vacation. Destinations they would miss with ocean crusing. Now you can cruise on the Rhine river from Amsterdam to picturesque towns in Germany which include Cologne Heidelberg and Strasbourg and then go on to Switzerland and Basel. When cruising the Danube you ll visit the cities of Prague Vienna and Budapest in Eastern Europe. You can cruise on the Mosel through Germany and Luxemburg. There are cruises to the south of BOCA DELRAY LIFE APRIL 2014 561.451.1778 or via e-mail at lori 28 WWW.LIFEPUBS.COM Cruising is a fabulous way to see and explore many exotic destinations (without packing and unpacking ) and without the hassle of air travel via your fabulous and floating hotel Cruising can take you to the Caribbean Alaska Hawaii Europe and beyond. But where an Ocean Cruise cannot take you is deep into a country to the little villages and towns to become part of the destination you re visiting. You can still enjoy the amazing benefits of cruising and yet have this deeply moving experience of conveniently visiting small towns and having more time in port on a river cruise. River cruises started to take off in the 90s but in the last 10 years are really exploding When the river cruise market began it was to entice travelers who were used to traveling throughout Europe on bus tours. It was the opinion of Jimmy Murphy when he founded Burg Landshut Castle Rhine River Exclusive Wine River Cruises on AMA Waterways Rhine River France on the Rhone River through Russia on the Volga River or Spain and Portugal on the Douro River. It doesn t matter where you take a river cruise you ll totally be embraced by the culture and history of the city you are in without ever boarding a bus or repacking a suitcase There are many river cruise companies to choose from too. Most of the cruise options you have include this quieter more relaxing cruise along with all your meals sightseeing taxes and other options depending on the company. Most of these cruises will also include or at least offer pre and post hotel stays to make the vacation even more spectacular. What is really nice about these cruises is that you ll have more time in the towns you want to explore than you normally would on an ocean cruise. Your cruise may arrive very early in the morning and BOCA DELRAY LIFE APRIL 2014 in some ports not depart until hours after dinner leaving you ample time to really roam and get the flavor of the town you re in. Many people dine on board and then get off the boat again to walk around the village and get a feel for what the night life is like. The other really nice benefit of the river cruise is you are right in the center of the town and when you step off the vessel you can walk--and in many cases bicycle--around the town. AMA Waterways is the first company to now include a minimum of 30 free of charge bicycles on each of their ships. This gives guests an opportunity to bicycle around the city and in some cases even bicycle ahead to the next port and meet up with the ship. It s a fabulous memorable way to travel. If you ever thought of river cruising just as a vacation for retired people you may be pleasantly surprised to find that there are offerings for many different kinds of travelers many of them younger couples. If you love excellent food and service visiting many destinations and enjoying a once in a lifetime experience a river cruise may just be the perfect next vacation for you From 1 999 per person Itineraries include Amsterdam to Luxembourg on the Rhine or Vilshofen Budapest on the Danube.

Broken Sound Club of Boca Raton is changing this perspective through its environmental efforts. John Crean CEO and general manager saw opportunities for branding Broken Sound as a conscientious club years before sustainability became the trend it is now. compost plant was the answer. There was a large 350 000 initial cost in purchasing the industrial compost tumbler and setting up the facility but the membership confidence in Crean s initiative was strong. By taking the landscape debris and combining it with the organic waste from the club kitchens the club is able to mitigate their landscaping costs. We have saved tens of thousands on waste disposal. We also save on pesticides and fertilizers because we can use less since they naturally bind with the compost he shares. It is this foresight and diligence in sustainability that has earned Broken Sound Club the GEO Certified award the first golf club in Florida and only the second in the United States to receive this honor. The club spa building and operations is expected to receive certification for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) with energysaving motion sensors for lights sustainable building designs more efficient light bulbs and solar panels to help heat the pool and hot water heaters. We even worked with our document storage vendor Iron Mountain to become paperless with all of our invoices to be processed from review to final approval. It doesn t just reduce waste but it is also cost effective Crean adds. Broken Sound Club continues to develop and work towards more green initiatives. Crean s passion to protect the environment carries over into everything he does for the club and its members. He is even in negotiations in both the areas of transportation and water reclamation. Crean closes with this thought We can change the way people think and they develop a sense of pride in being part of sustainability. It has more of an impact not just on where you live but on the global community. is Greener BOCA DELRAY LIFE APRIL 2014 When Crean joined the leadership of Broken Sound he saw more than just ensuring the continuation and elevation of the club life. He saw an opportunity to incorporate sustainability and different certifications from Golf Environment Organization (GEO) and Audubon International as part of the club s branding. What Crean needed to do first was gain the confidence of the membership to get behind his green initiatives. All things start small. Big ideas that are a lightning field of brilliance usually start with just a spark. Crean started with the most basic of things a Styrofoam cup in a golf cart. A recurring issue was that the polystyrene receptacles just ended up where they landed much less the effect they had on the environment with both their production and decomposition. The first solution was switching to a biodegradable cup with a cozy to keep the drink hot or cold. The logistical complication was that the cup would often get stuck in the cozy inside the cart s cupholder. The next solution was a separate cozy container that was mounted to the golf cart s cupholder the standard of drink service now for Broken Sound members. This simple idea of sustainability quickly grew as blue recycling bins for cans and plastic were introduced as part of the process of waste disposal as well as a separate dumpster for cardboard products. Crean sees a bigger picture as he looks out on the greens of both the main club golf course and the Old Course at Broken Sound. He sees a system that is a natural sieve of pollutants that gives back clean air and water. It is Nature s laboratory for fauna flora and hydro he says. He took notice of all the dead branches and debris that was costing the club over 10 000 a year to clean up.

Nestled amongst the stone work and water fountains of Gulf Atlantic Plaza DIG which stands for Doing It Green redefines what we all think about eating healthy and green. When people hear about green cuisine most think of vegan and gluten-free dining options. Robert Greenfield owner of DIG provides a new perspective and is always happy to educate his patrons on eating organic. This fine establishment has both comfortable indoor and outdoor seating using the chairs and tables from their last location in the spirit of recycling. Even the water is bottled in-house using a Kangen Water machine to filter out pollutants and harmful chemicals often found in tap or bottled water giving you a cleaner tasting water to drink. And a large majority of the menu is organic grown or fed without using additives pesticides or other harmful chemicals. DIG 777 E. Atlantic Ave. Delray Beach 561.279.1002 46 WWW.LIFEPUBS.COM DIG The real test though for most diners is in the taste. We suggest you start out with the crowd pleaser known as the Hummus Trio. Three distinct hummus made with eggplant and pumpkin seed black bean and chipotle and basil and sun-dried tomato. They have a smooth consistency with strong and pure flavors that you cannot help yourself from continuously dipping into them with sticks of fresh zucchini and celery or wedges of pita bread. A vegan specialty is the Organic Vegetable Lasagna made with a basil pesto pomodoro shaved parmesan fresh vegetables and mushrooms and sunflower sprouts. The flavor is so rich that even a meat-eater will want a bite. Not to worry though as DIG prepares a juicy wagyu beef burger covered in cheddar cheese grilled onions and a rich chipotle BBQ sauce that satisfies even the most die-hard carnivore. A well-rounded selection of wines and draft beers help round out the menu. DIG has a wonderful and relaxed atmosphere for lunch or dinner. There is also the added bonus of frequenting a restaurant that is doing its part to positively impact not just the environment but also the eating habits of each patron.

It s amazing that something that seemed so remote and untamed is so close to where we live. The two-mile dusty stretch to the Fish Camp is lined with tall sawgrass but quirky signs let you know you are going in the right direction. A rustic sign that read Mack s Fish Camp was followed by airboats and swamp buggies until finally reaching the cabins. We were greeted by Marshall Jones his wife Nicole their children and some family friends. Johnny Cash was playing in the background as the group gathered around a bonfire in front of a large chicken hut that overlooked the dark swampy waters. The kids were entertained as the grown-ups lit firecrackers and bottle rockets. Friday night fireworks We were welcomed with smiles offered a drink and given a handful of fireworks. We felt right at home as we joined in the fun and watched the bottle rockets glide across the water. This is what we do on Friday nights says Marshall. There s no other place I d rather be just look at my backyard he says as he points at the vast land around him. It started to drizzle and one of Marshall s friends suggested it was the perfect time to go frogging. As a true gladesman Marshall s eyes lit up but he then decided it had been a long day and called it a night. Marshall and his twin brother Keith are proprietors of one of the last fish camps in South Florida. The Jones brothers and their families are among the few descendants of pioneer gladesmen who still live in the area. Mack Senior their great grandfather purchased the land in 1938 when it was one of the most remote outposts in the area and the twins grew up there. Back then the Everglades was a new territory and largely unconquered says Marshall. My great grandfather was drawn here because of the vast unexplored land. We retired for the night and went into our cabin. The air-conditioned cabin had a queen bed and loft-style space that can sleep four children comfortably. It also featured a mini fridge microwave and a coffee machine it wasn t the Ritz but we had everything we needed. Abundant fishing We woke up the next morning at around 8 30 a.m. I poured myself a cup of coffee walked outside and sat on a bench overlooking the water. One of the few permanent residents of the camp was shooing her dogs away from the water s edge she smiled said good morning and at told me that one of the gators got one BOCA DELRAY LIFE APRIL 2014 56 WWW.LIFEPUBS.COM Clockwise from left A wooden sign points the way to Mack s Fish Camp fossilized metal tools a pair of docked airboats of her dogs a few weeks back. We exchanged a few pleasantries and I headed back to my cabin. We decided to try our luck at some bass fishing. The cabin rentals include use of a canoe but we wanted something with a little more muscle and shelled out 50 to rent a motorized flat-bottom jon boat. As we zipped around a nine-mile stretch of water we saw sunbathing turtles alligators and anhingas the latter are also called snake birds for the appearance of their heads when they are sticking out of the water. A couple of hours of good catches prompted us to head back. Pete the water dog As we approached the dock we noticed a huge gator lurking in the water as the Jones kids were swinging off a rope close by. We naively warned Keith. Oh that s our water dog Pete he said. He asked if we wanted him to call Pete over and skeptically we complied. Keith then started making calling sounds and tapping the water low and behold Pete swam toward us. Keith walked over and knelt almost eye level to the reptile and started petting the creature and said See Just like a dog. Marshall says Our family has a unique relationship with the wildlife here in the everglades. We have several alligators we know by name. We have a special relationship with these animals we are able to communicate with them and they respond. Pete watches after the kids when they go swimming. He swims out around us in a perimeter and wards off rogue gators that could possibly be dangerous. BOCA DELRAY LIFE APRIL 2014 He reassures us that alligators have the demeanor of a dog rather than a cold-blooded killer. Guides tours pristine locations If you are looking for some serious bass fishing Mack s offers guided fishing trips by airboat or bass boat I recommend the airboat which can access hidden fishing holes that regular boats can t reach. The water is as pristine as it gets very clean the fishing is Mack s Fish Camp phenomenal says Marshall. During the fall and spring we Danell Lane Hialeah average over a hundred fish on deck. That doesn t mean hook 954.536.7400 ups and missed fish over one hundred fish we have to take off the hook. Mack s also accommodates family-friendly activities with its playground picnic tables barbecues fire pits and airboat tours. One thing is certain From the moment you enter the camp driving down that dirt road is like going through a time warp. Hopefully relics like these will withstand the test of time its pristine beauty is as wild as it is calming. WWW.LIFEPUBS.COM 57 familyissues By Jennifer Altieri Hop Into Happiness Find your happiness egg by creating your ideal life Are you hunting for your life s purpose What are the chances you are going to find it in an egg I would say slim to none. Yet very often we run around like kids at an egg hunt trying to find what will bring us happiness. You know how it works. Kids run to find and collect as many eggs as they can get before someone else can get them. The prize inside the egg is always a surprise waiting to be discovered. As adults looking for more joy in life we can sometimes end up randomly grabbing eggs hoping the prize inside will be the fulfillment we are searching for. Feeling a sense of urgency to get it before someone else snatches up our life s purpose. If you re having a hard time finding your happiness egg and feel like someone else has it in their basket I have good news for you. No one can take your fulfilling life from you. Today I m going to share with you a sneak peak of what I teach people when they take the passion test. You will be on your way to living your life s purpose no egg hunting required. Three elements necessary to create anything you choose to have in life. Intention Attention and No Tension. Intention consciously clearly stating what you choose to create. Attention what you put your attention on grows stronger in your life. No Tension act from a state of calmness and remain open. And remain open to happiness looking different than you thought it would when you placed that egg in your basket. Secret to a passionate life. Whenever you are faced with a decision a choice or an opportunity choose in favor of your passion. How many times a day are you faced with a decision Now you can ask yourself will this bring me closer to or farther away from my passion Prerequisite to living a passionate life. Commitment and persistence. Nothing will happen for you until you have committed to your passions. Make the commitment to yourself and your passions and you will soon find yourself living your life s purpose. We all affect each other. If you are living a joyful life your kids feel it your significant other feels it and everyone around you feels it too. When you live a life of fulfillment it inspires others to do the same. This Easter season leave the egg hunting to the Easter Bunny and the children and begin consciously creating your ideal life.

The statistics are released in late February and interesting tidbits are always gleaned. One trend for 2013 falls below the belt. There has been an increase in popularity of both buttock augmentation ( lift ) procedures and labiaplasty surgery. Overall there was a 6.5% increase in aesthetic surgical procedures from 2012 to 2013 but for labiaplasty the increase was 44% and for buttock augmentation it was 58% While these two procedures certainly do not make up the majority of the average plastic surgery practice the trend is notable. The total numbers of these procedures remains far less than the most common procedures such as breast augmentation liposuction and eyelid surgery. One trend for 2013 falls below the belt. The number of plastic surgeons performing labiaplasty increased from 21% to 29% last year alone. While core training in plastic and reconstructive surgery involves the entire body including the genitourinary region most common vaginal procedures including labiaplasty and various other vaginal rejuvenation procedures are commonly performed within the specialties of gynecology and urogynecology. Interested patients should do their homework to find a qualified physician for help just as with any medical condition. The number of physicians performing buttock enhancement a.k.a. Brazilian Butt Lift has increased from 19% to 30% last year. The procedure most commonly involves carefully reshaping the lower back hip thigh and buttock regions through liposuction ( liposculpting ) and transfer of a portion of the removed fat to select areas to enhance the roundness shape and size of the buttocks. While this is a surgical procedure with standard risks and consequences typically no actual lifting is involved. The effect of reshaping the buttocks through fat repositioning creates the illusion of a lift without any actual cutting or lifting as with face or breast lifting surgeries.
