Brazilian Butt Lift vs Butt Implants

Let me be honest, I like many secretly desire a Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez booty. Hollywood these days is all about the booty. It’s clear to see why clothing looks better with a nice booty pop. So if you’re like me and haven’t been naturally blessed with this asset, there are other ways to achieve it besides doing millions of endless squats.

The decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is not a decision people make lightly. Deciding to have butt augmentation surgery is also challenging since there are drastically different approaches to achieve the desired result of a more round and shapely posterior.Patients can opt for a Brazilian Butt Lift or Butt Implants.

The Brazilian Butt Lift has become a very popular procedure because it uses the patient’s own fat to augment the buttocks. Fat is taken from another area of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, or hips, and is grafted into the butt to achieve a fuller, rounder shape. Liposuction is performed above the buttocks during this procedure to improve the overall body appearance.

If the patient does not have enough fat in other areas of the body, Butt Augmentation with implants is an alternative. The incision that is made will be hidden in the crease of the buttocks, and the implants will be inserted within the gluteal muscles. The implants are made of a solid silicone gel, which will not rupture or leak the way breast implants can. However, There are several serious risks & complications associated with butt implants. Bleeding or nerve and muscle damage may occur. Butt implants could also shift and cause the buttocks to be asymmetrical. Our # 1 priority at  The Kaplan Center is patient safety. Due to the serious risks, we currently do not offer Butt Implants in our practice.
