How butt implants and Brazilian butt lifts are different?

But augmentation or butt implants are very popular now. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have contributed a lot to the popularity of this procedure. A Brazillian butt lift is another procedure that is gaining popularity. Many people don’t know the difference. So, it’s important to know the characteristics of both to decide which procedure to go for.

Butt implants

Butt implants are used to add volume to your buttocks. Filling the butt with solid silicon is the most common implant. The material is durable and prevents any rupturing, deflating or spilling due to pressure. Incisions are made, and a pocket is created to hold the implant. It may be required to place drains to let blood and fluids get out right after the surgery. There are some complications associated with butt implants. These include fluid collection, capsular contracture, etc. Also, the look and feel may not be natural.

Brazilian butt lifts

It is a fat transfer procedure that uses the patient’s body fat to enhance the butt. Surgeons can harvest fat fro thighs, abdomen or back using a cannula using a liposuction procedure. These fat particles are then injected into the fatty and muscle layers to add volume. As fat particle may not survive as they get removed by the body’s immune system, more than one Brazilian lift may be necessary before you get your final result.

People now prefer Brazilian butt lift to butt implants due to the natural look and feel it gives after the procedure. Butt implant is not a permanent solution. It can last for 8 to 12 years after which you have to go through the same procedure again. Brazilian lift is a permanent solution and doesn’t have the complications that butt implants have. So, if you are considering butt lift, go for the Brazilian butt lift procedure.
