It doesn’t take a detective to notice that larger rears are everywhere. From movies to music videos and fashion, rounder, more shaped buttocks have become highly desirable. Unfortunately, not everyone was born with the kind of buttocks that are so popular – and doing squats can only do so much!
That’s why Brazilian butt lifts are quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. Buttock augmentation can be used to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks, as well as correct any asymmetries.*
The Brazilian butt lift uses a patient’s natural fat to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks.* During the procedure, fat is harvested from another part of the body (usually around the waistline or abdomen) via liposuction. The fat is then cleaned with an antibiotic wash and is injected into buttocks to add volume and shape. The Brazilian butt lift has an extremely high rate of success, as the body doesn’t reject its own fat.* It’s estimated that 50%-80% of injected fat “takes,” with final results visible a year after the procedure.*
Many patients wonder if synthetic butt implants can be used in conjunction with the Brazilian butt lift. Butt implants are made of silicone material and placed either in the muscle or above the gluteal muscle for immediate results.*
If you’re interested in combining your Brazilian butt lift procedure with implants, it’s important to understand why you’re looking to combine the two procedures. While implants can ensure that you see results faster, you should also ensure that you have realistic expectations for your buttock augmentation procedure. Additionally, there’s a slight risk involved with butt implants, as there’s a chance your body could reject the implant.
