The rise of celebrity culture has changed a lot of things and brought forth a number of fashion and life trends. One such trend is that of getting your butt back in shape and making it full and voluptuous. Women typically look to get that done through cosmetic surgery; the problem though is that there is not one but two ways to achieve a flawless butt. Which one to choose and which one to leave is where the real problem lies. This blog will help in that regard.

Brazilian Butt Lift

This is one of the most popular methods among celebrities to get their butt enhanced. Known as Brazilian Butt Lift or butt augmentation with fat transfer, the process involves removing fat present in excess in your body and using that fat once it has been purified, by injecting it back into your butt to enhance its fat content and look. The procedure can usually be carried out with one incision at the top of the butt crack which would be hidden by even the smallest G-string. The injection of fat and may be is placed across the butt to give a round and full contour or to fill out flat spots.

The fat will be injected at different depths along the buttocks to ensure that they are perfectly contoured and their shape enhanced leaving a natural non-surgical look.

Butt Implants

This is another procedure that was regularly used prior to the inception of the Brazilian butt lift procedure. This is a surgical procedure whereby an incision is made in the tailbone, a pocket created between the butt muscles and a soft, solid silicone is placed in that pocket. These are adjusted to give the buttocks a proper shape before suturing the incision.

Which one has a faster Recovery?

The rate of the procedure is often something that will weigh heavily on the decisions taken. Patients who have undergone a Brazilian butt lift can often return to work within a week or so of the procedure.  After a butt implant though, a patient will only be able to return to work after 2 weeks of the surgery. It takes two to three days to be able to work properly after a butt implant. Typically, Brazilian Butt Lifts are faster to recover from the significantly smaller incision and not having to damage the muscle by placing an implant.

Side effects and Risks

Dr. Kole wants you to be aware that both of these procedures hold a considerable amount of risk and can often have a number of side effects. Typically with Brazilian Butt Lifts, the common side effects and risks are:

  • Bleeding
  • Scaring
  • Infection
  • Reabsorbing of some fat
  • Contour irregularities

On the other hand, as far as butt implants are concerned, their risks and side effects are:

  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Muscle/Nerve Damage
  • Malposition of Implants
  • Asymmetry of Implants
  • Infection
