The Dangers of Butt Implants and Why Natural Butt Augmentation Is a Great Alternative

We are experiencing a rise in the popularity of butt augmentation surgeries. This is probably due to the celebrity influence of personalities and stars such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. Many people want to have that ample backside that is curvaceous and shapely.

In the past, many people sought butt implants to increase the size of their backsides. However, there is a new procedure call a Brazilian butt lift, also called butt augmentation with fat grafting. This type of butt augmentation is considered safer and provides better looking, more natural results than butt implants.

Butt implants are prosthesis devices made from silicone which are placed in the buttocks to increase volume. Implants come in oval or round shapes. Problems and risks associated with implants include displacement or movement of the implant, contraction, fluid collection around the implanted device and even rupture. Rejection and allergic reactions are also risks to butt implants.

The Brazilian butt lift offers several benefits over a traditional implant procedure. The procedure actually uses a patient’s own fat cells, which reduces the possibility of rejection or allergic reaction to nearly zero. Additionally, since real fat cells are used, the results are far more natural looking. One thing to keep in mind is that the patient who wished a fat transfer to the buttock needs to have enough fat on another location to transfer.

What Happens During a Brazilian Butt Lift?

During a Brazilian butt lift, a patient’s fat will be removed using a gentle liposuction procedure. Because the fat is usually removed from areas that often have excess fat, the procedure provides the added benefit of smoothing and contouring the area where the fat is removed.

The harvest fat is then processed and purified, with only the healthiest cells being used. This purified fat is then transplanted into the buttock area using cannulas. The doctor will inject the fat cells at different depths in the buttock area to increase the natural look and feel.

At Laser Lipo and Vein, we consider the Brazilian butt lift procedure to have far more advantages and benefits over butt implants, including:

  • A more natural look and feel
  • No risk of allergic reaction
  • No need for future surgeries to repair implant related problems
