Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Implants

Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt ImplantsWhat is the difference?

In recent years, cosmetic surgery has garnered a lot of attention and continues to grow in popularity. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the cosmetic procedures that have become the most popular are one that seek to enhance the appearance of the buttocks. 2014 was the year that began the newfound trend and infatuation with gaining a plump, lifted backside. The recent surge comes from heavy celebrity influence that have body styles that women want to emulate. Brazilian butt lifts and butt implants reign amongst the most prevalent procedures…but what is the difference between the two?

The Process

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift is a medical procedure that uses a method of liposuction to successfully transfer fat storage to the buttock region. Fat deposits can be transferred from a variety of areas on the body that have excess fat that can be removed without problem. Several places fat can be successfully transferred from including the abdomen region, flanks, thighs and back. Once the fat is inserted into the buttock region, the buttocks are then compressed until molded to ensure symmetry and a natural appearance. According to realself.com, 91% percent of Brazilian butt lift surgery patients are fully satisfied with the results.

Butt Implants

Butt implants are another option for buttock augmentation, not to be confused with similarity to breast augmentation. Breast augmentation consists of gel-silicone implants that are supple and soft, whereas butt implants are dense and made of solid or semi-solid silicone.

The process includes making a precise incision through the center of the gluteus maximus, the buttock muscle, and creating a pocket to where the fitted implant is carefully inserted. The process is repeated on the second buttock muscle and carefully placed to ensure equal placement and symmetry.

Risks and Possible Complications

As with every cosmetic procedure, there are certain associated risks and possible complications after surgery. The buttock region on the body withstands various amounts of pressure and stress, everything from the normal daily events, such as sitting down, to rigorous exercise. Notably, Brazilian butt lifts do not carry the same amount of risk as butt implants, according to buttliftbrazilian.com. However, Brazilian butt lifts do not have as long-lasting effects as do butt implants. Consequently, it is important to understand that with these cosmetic surgeries, some side effects may occur.
