One of the biggest trends in the plastic surgery world and popular culture has become centered around having the perfect, and most shapely figure. Whether celebrities have natural or enhanced curves, with the help of plastic surgery you too can have the figure of your dreams. The Brazilian Butt Lift and Butt Implants are too such procedures that have cornered the market on mastering the perfect behind and creating the ideal appearance. Patients typically consider a buttock augmentation in light of major weight loss or simply to reach their ideal aesthetic. To make a sound decision between the two, one needs to consider all that comes with each procedure.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that takes the patient’s own fat and injects it back into the buttocks. Fat can be taken from the thighs, abdomen or flanks.
This procedure inserts implants into the patient’s buttocks, much like breast implants, to create a rounder behind.
The Look & Feel
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure utilizes the patient’s fat from different areas on the body to create their ideal shape. As it harvests the fat, the Butt Lift creates a more natural look and feel to the buttocks area. Whereas butt implants, are meant to create a defined oval or rounded shape to the buttocks and remain solid with no movement. Patients are able to choose a more natural look with the Butt Lift or a firmer appearance with the butt implants.
Procedure & Recovery
The Butt Lift procedure is an efficient way to enhance your behind. To start, the procedure begins with liposuction. The doctor may take from any one of the patient’s troublesome areas with an excess amount of fat. After the fat has been taken out, the doctor will then insert the fat into the buttocks through the strategic placement of injections and begin to create a fuller shape. This is an outpatient procedure and patients are able to return home the same day. Pressure should not be applied to the buttocks for at least three weeks following the procedure to let the area maintain its shape and heal properly. Patients will receive a compression garment to hold the buttocks in place and let the buttocks heal into the new shape. After four weeks, patients are able to return to work and normal activities.
The butt implant procedure begins with an incision that is made to create a pocket to place the silicone implants within the patient’s buttocks. The doctor will insert the implants to perfect the shape and contour of the patient’s behind. Implants are typically solid and will not shift over time. Patients are able to return home from the procedure same day. Pressure to the buttocks area should be avoided for at least three weeks after the procedure. A compression garment will be administered to the patient to place the implant. Patients will be fully healed in six weeks.
The Final Verdict
The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift remain natural and last in comparison to butt implants. This procedure also has less scarring. Butt implant results are less natural than the Brazilian Butt Lift. Implants are not permanent and will not last longer than 8 to 12 years. With the Brazilian Butt Lift, patients are able to target areas with unwanted fat like the thighs, flanks or abdomen to further contour their shape. Which ultimately is like getting two procedures in one. This procedure requires no foreign objects to be placed within the buttocks and avoids the risk of the body rejecting the implants altogether with the fat injections.
