Is Brazilian Butt Lift a Safer Choice than Implants?

Brazilian Butt Lift ImplantsThe passion for a round, plump derriere is to a certain extent inspired by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can increase the volume and enhance the shape of the buttocks. Buttock implants are the traditional option for butt enhancement and recently a more natural option is available – Brazilian butt lift. A common question in the minds of those considering this cosmetic surgery is whether Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a safer choice than implant augmentation? The answer could be a ‘yes’ in many respects. Let us see.

First of all, BBL is a cosmetic procedure that can help you naturally enhance your backside using your own fat, without the use of any artificial materials. So the primary benefit is that BBL has no implant related complications. The procedure involves removing the fat cells removed through liposuction and injecting it into the buttocks.

Butt implants do help you achieve a bigger back side but with risks. One of the drawbacks of implants is that they may leak or deflate, resulting in a range of problems. Other problems include implant movement, capsular contracture and implant displacement. The ultimate look and natural feel obtained through fat transfer may not be achieved with implant enhancement.

Another fact is that butt implant results are not permanent as no implants come with lifetime warranty. You will have to go for a replacement surgery at some point later in your life.

All this doesn’t mean that Brazilian butt lift is a perfect procedure with no risks. Of course, no procedure is hundred percent risk-free and so is BBL. Also, the availability of enough fat in the particular patient and survival of the fat harvested are important considerations. Some risks associated include blood clots, bruising, pain and numbness, which will resolve fairly quickly. Considering the advantages of this procedure:

  • More natural-looking end result
  • No risks of implant rupture or capsular contracture
  • No need for additional future surgical procedures for implant related issues
  • The donor site from where fat is harvested is contoured well.

The efficiency and successful outcome of the fat transfer procedure depends on the plastic surgeon that performs it. A skilled and experienced plastic surgeon specialized in the procedure should be chosen to experience a safe surgery and optimal results. Such a surgeon would know the right equation of adding and removing fat to ensure an attractive outcome.
