WHAT ARE BUTT AND HIP IMPLANTS?
Buttock augmentation, also known as gluteal augmentation, involves procedures that enhance the size, contours, and/or shape of the buttocks area. Butt implants or BBL implants are sometimes used for this purpose: to provide a rounder or shapelier look. During the butt implant procedure, silicone-filled devices or other types of butt implant devices are placed in the deep tissues of the buttocks as a way of shaping the area.
Butt implants can provide a fuller, more lifted appearance for patients who want a curvier figure or improved body proportions. Hip implants are a similar type of body implant cosmetic surgery that involve enhancing the hips, butt, and upper leg area with solid silicone implants.
HOW DO BUTT IMPLANTS COMPARE TO A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?
When considering buttock enhancement options, people often weigh the pros and cons of butt implants versus Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery. While both procedures aim to enhance the buttocks, they differ in their techniques and outcomes.
A Brazilian butt lift, often referred to as BBL surgery, uses the patient's own body fat to augment the buttocks. The process involves liposuction to remove excess fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The harvested fat is then purified and injected into strategic areas of the buttocks to create a natural-looking enhancement. BBL surgery not only adds volume, but also contours the surrounding areas, resulting in a more sculpted silhouette.
Butt implants and BBL surgery each have unique benefits. Butt implants provide a consistent and predictable result in terms of size and shape, making them attractive for individuals seeking a significant augmentation. However, they involve surgical incisions and carry the risks associated with the insertion of foreign devices into the body.
Since a BBL involves the patient’s own fat, there is no risk of implant-related complications. This procedure also offers the added benefit of contouring other areas of the body through liposuction. A BBL provides a more natural look and feel in comparison to implants. However, not all individuals have enough donor fat for a successful BBL procedure, which could limit candidacy.
If you have a smaller, leaner frame and don’t have enough body fat for a BBL, you may be considering butt implants.
HOW LONG DO BUTT IMPLANTS LAST?
The durability of butt implants varies from person to person. On average, these implants are designed to provide long-term enhancement and may last for a decade or longer. However, they are not intended to last forever. Over time, wear and tear, as well as changes in weight and lifestyle, can influence the longevity of the implants. Some patients may need follow-up butt implant surgery to maintain their results.
For those who seek alternatives to surgical procedures, non-surgical options including BBL fillers—such as a Sculptra® BBL—and other non-surgical BBL treatments are available. BBL injections involve injecting dermal fillers into the buttocks to add temporary volume and contour. Non-surgical BBL treatments aim to achieve similar results using various non-invasive techniques, such as radiofrequency or ultrasound technology, without the need for surgical intervention. These options offer minimal downtime and fewer associated risks compared to surgical procedures, but the results are not as significant as possible with surgery.
WHAT ELSE IS AVAILABLE FOR BODY CONTOURING?
Burnett Plastic Surgery provides Brazilian butt lift surgery and a wide array of other cosmetic surgery procedures to enhance the contours of the lower and upper body. A tummy tuck provides a slimmer, more toned midsection area by addressing excess skin, fat, and weakened muscles. We can also combine liposuction with a Brazilian butt lift to give you a more rounded butt and slimmer waistline.
