Butt Lifts 101: What You Need to Know

When it comes to achieving a more desirable derrière, there are a number of butt augmentation options available, with the Brazilian butt lift being the most popular.

Most butt augmentation procedures involve liposuction, removal and tightening of excess skin and transferring excess fat from one area of the body to another.

Why get a butt lift?

People who opt for butt lifts usually tick one or more of the following boxes:

  • They want to enhance the size of their butt
  • They aren’t happy with the proportions of their butt
  • They feel their bodies are disproportionate
  • Ageing has led to a sagging butt
  • They want a fuller, hourglass figure

Butt augmentation options

Butt implants

Butt implant surgery involves the implantation of gel silicone or water implants on either side of the buttocks, leaving the patient with a more rounded appearance. Gel silicone implants are the riskier option because if they rupture, they can cause a lumpy appearance and patients have a higher risk of infection. Water-filled implants are slightly less dangerous if they rupture.

Solid silicone implants are one of the newer alternatives on the market and completely eliminate the risk of rupturing.

Overall, the biggest downside of butt implants is that they leave a scar and offer a result that looks less natural.

Brazilian butt lifts

This relatively new procedure is a safer and a lot more effective than butt implants.

Instead of placing a foreign object into the body, the Brazilian butt lift makes use of your natural fat stores to achieve a shapelier butt. Because your own fat is being used, the risk of rejection is minimal.

Since fat is injected into the butt, incisions aren’t needed, which means you won’t be left with a scar.

During a Brazilian butt lift, excess fat will be removed from areas such as your abdomen, thighs and upper back and transplanted into the buttocks area, meaning you will be achieving a more desirable body shape at the same time.

Not only is the procedure less painful but it requires far less downtime than butt implants.

Brazilian butt lift FAQs

Who is an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

If you’re healthy, at a stable weight and over the age of 18, you are an ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift. You will also need to have excess fat that can be used in the procedure.

What can I expect during the recovery process?

All patients will experience some mild discomfort and swelling after their butt lift procedure but you should be able to move around again within a day or two. Most patients are able to return to work a week after their butt lift but it’s important not to sit on the butt as much as possible as the extra pressure can slow down the healing process. You will also need to sleep on your side or stomach. Patients will also need to wear a compression garment during recovery.

If you have found that dieting and exercise are simply not helping you achieve the ideal butt size and shape, a Brazilian butt lift could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
