27 Aug Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Implants: What’s the Difference?
Butt augmentation has quickly risen to become one of the newest trends in cosmetic surgery, especially with pop culture flaunting the backsides of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez. Most women are not born with larger-than-life buttocks and are forced to spend countless hours in the gym doing squats trying to achieve what little behind they do have.
A butt lift refers to any procedure that augments the buttocks to achieve a fuller and rounder shape. There are two main types of butt lifts performed: the Brazilian butt lift, which is the preferred method at John Park MD Plastic Surgery and then butt implants.
Both augmentation techniques can achieve a more prominent and rounder booty, so what’s the difference?
Naturally Enhance Your Butt with a Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift is a natural way to enhance your curves by utilizing your own fat to plump your bottom. The only caveat is that you must have sufficient fat somewhere else on your body that you can extract. Via liposuction, fat is harvested from somewhere on your body where you don’t want it, such as the abdomen, thighs, back, or flanks. The extracted fat is then purified before being injected back into all layers of the buttocks by a method called fat grafting. This helps to shape and contour the buttocks to achieve the shape and overall appearance you want. By using your own fat, you eliminate the risk of possible rejection or an adverse reaction making Brazilian butt lifts performed by Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. John Park a safe and effective method to achieve natural-looking results.
What are Butt Implants?
Butt implants are precisely what the name implies, implants. They are silicone buttock prostheses that are placed either above or within the gluteus maximus muscle to add fullness. This butt lift method is much more invasive than the Brazilian butt lift and leaves scars in the treatment area. Even though ruptures are rare, butt implants do come with the added risk of a possible rupture that can lead to drooping, lack of symmetry, and the need for another operation.
