Are Brazilian Butt Lifts Preferable to Implants?
Most commonly referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift – in honor of gorgeously endowed South American women – this procedure removes fat from unwanted areas and transfers it to the buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure not only enhances the rear, but also shrinks areas with excess volume, achieving incredible results. The fat transfer for a curvy, taut Brazilian buttocks is the ideal minimally invasive surgery for quick, natural-looking results.
For the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, Dr. Shapiro uses your own body’s fat tissue taken from other areas in your body, typically the abdomen or other troublesome places that could benefit from volume reduction. The fat is injected above, below, and into the gluteal muscles for a smooth, curved look that improves the tightness of the skin around the buttocks. The added volume also lifts away any wrinkles or sagging that has occurred over time and simultaneously provides a full and attractive rear. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure reveals a very natural external appearance, attractive both in and out of clothing.
One of the main advantages of a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is that scars are very limited.They are often located only to the crease where the butt meets the thighs, and sometimes at the top of the gluteal crease at the very bottom of the back, depending on what procedures are being performed. A fat transfer to the buttocks can also be performed by itself or during other body contouring procedures in order to make the most out of your time.
Many people have difficulty deciding between fat transfer and implants when choosing their treatment options for their buttocks. In general, a fat transfer enhancement procedure to the buttocks is preferred over implants. This is the case for a number of reasons. One principal reason is that implants are usually made of silicone and when they are placed in the buttocks they can shift position, while becoming infected or uncomfortable, and need to be removed. Using your own fat for the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure will not only look more natural, but it will also feel more natural. There are also fewer cases of fat transfer complications than in cases of implants, and the Brazilian buttocks lift is much less invasive than an implantation technique. Receiving implants will leave a much larger scar than the few millimeter cannula associated with undergoing a fat transfer procedure.
