Which Way to a Better Booty?
- Posted on: Jun 30 2017
Of the many ways in which men and women tailor their bodies to their unique perspective, buttocks augmentation is a method that has experienced exponential growth in popularity in recent years. The current trend in body style is to admire more prominent curves, especially along the backside, a la Kim Kardashian. If your backside doesn’t lend much to being admirable, you may find yourself in deep contemplation about augmenting this part of the body. The question is, which is the best way to do so?
Butt Implants vs. Brazilian Butt Lift
Sometimes, having options can feel overwhelming. The option between butt implants and the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is a good one, though, because it opens the door for meeting the needs and preferences of more people.
What are butt implants?
The easiest way to describe buttocks implants is to liken them to breast implants. These solid structures made of biocompatible silicone are made to withstand the pressure of sitting, moving, and working out. Like breast implants, these silicone structures come in various sizes and shapes and textures. Each variation is intended to achieve the best outcome for the individual patient.
Buttock implants are inserted into a pocket on the most appropriate height of the gluteus maximus muscle. The situation within this pocket facilitates lasting stability within the muscle. Drains may be a part of the implant procedure to promote healing by allowing excess fluid to flow from the surgical area as needed.
What You Need to Know about Butt Implants
Two important details that need to be understood about butt implants is that one, they will need to be replaced at some point; and, two, implants tend to feel less natural than autologous fat (Brazilian Butt Lift).
What is Brazilian Butt Lift?
This method of buttocks augmentation involves two phases. First, fat is extracted from one part of the body, such as the thighs or the stomach. Fat cells are prepared to separate their purest form. These cells are inserted via a need into the buttocks for perfect roundness. Because the Brazilian Butt Lift is an “all-natural” procedure, it may sound ideal.
What You Need to Know about Brazilian Butt Lift
The results of a Brazilian Butt Lift will feel more natural than butt implants, but they may not necessarily look more natural. No replacement of foreign objects will be needed in the future. However, that does not mean that a follow-up augmentation with fat will never be desired. Finally, patients should expect a small amount of resorption of fat after this procedure.
