Types of Buttocks Augmentation Procedures
There are two ways to go about a butt lift, also known as a buttocks augmentation. First is the traditional butt lift, which uses silicone implants to increase the size of the buttocks instantaneously. The second is the Brazilian butt lift, which uses fat transfer from the individual’s own body to increase the size of the buttocks gradually. Many doctors believe in the superior efficacy of the Brazilian option.
When a traditional butt lift is performed, the patient will have incisions made either at the base of each buttock or at the top of the central crease between the buttocks. The implants will then be placed, and the incisions will be sutured shut, possibly with some drains placed for the post-operative period. However, because so much pressure is placed on the buttocks daily, implants have the tendency for problems, such as rupture or displacement. This can lead to further surgeries to repair the damage. In addition, implants have the tendency of not looking natural.
On the other hand, a Brazilian butt lift begins with the liposuction of fat from one area of the body, such as the abdomen or inner thighs. The fat cells are then put through a process of centrifugation and cleansing to remove any dead cells before being placed into the buttocks. A series of very small injections are used to place these fat cells into the fatty and muscular layers of the buttocks to create a natural-looking shape. Patients should keep in mind that some of these fat cells will be reabsorbed because they will not receive adequate blood flow to be kept alive. Therefore, some cosmetic surgeons perform several fat transfers to ensure that patients have the size and shape of buttocks that they desire.
