What is the difference between a butt lift and a Brazilian butt lift?

Few women are born with a perfectly toned, full-sized behind, but most women wish they did. But as surgical augmentation becomes more popular and more accepted, the trend of trying to fix the parts of the body we do not like has also grown. Among the most popular butt augmentation procedures throughout the past few decades have been Brazilian butt lifts and butt implants. You have likely encountered references to both procedures if you have researched them.  These two procedures are often confused with each other or taken for the same thing. There are, however, a few important differences to consider when deciding which approach may best suit your appearance goals. So, whether your bottom is feeling small, looks deflated, or you just want a bigger behind, learn more about how a Brazilian Butt Lift or butt implant can help.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

Every aspect of our bodies is influenced by genetics, from height to weight to facial and body contours to the size and shape of our rear. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help a lot to keep you in top shape but not everyone is able to achieve the body and toned behind they are aiming for because of how genetics influence those. The buttocks can be reshaped with butt lifts to overcome genetic influences. So look into one of the trending popular butt enhancement procedures and how it can help you. The Brazilian butt lift is a plastic surgery procedure that involves the transfer of fats to help create fullness in your back. It is a specialized fat transfer procedure that significantly augments the shape and size of your buttocks without making implants. Your excess fat is removed from your abdomen, lower back, hips, and thighs with liposuction. A portion of this fat will be injected into your buttocks.

What is a butt lift or gluteoplasty?

Gluteoplasty or butt implants involves inserting a solid silicone that does not need to be replaced and cannot be broken in your buttocks. Following surgery, a drain is often inserted to allow fluids and blood to drain for a week. Implants are more risky than Brazilian Butt Lift surgery since a foreign object will enter the body. Some people's bodies do not respond well to implants. As the implants can sometimes move, they can appear less natural than augmentations performed with body fat. Furthermore, implants require replacement every eight to twelve years, which means surgery is required to maintain the appearance achieved by the implant.

When are you a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift or gluteoplasty?

While Brazilian Butt Lift procedures still involve surgery, the results are often considered more aesthetically pleasing than those achieved by butt implants. Despite this, not everyone qualifies for a Brazilian Butt Lift. You are only a good candidate for Brazilian butt lift if: *You have adequate fat stores in other areas of your body such as your thighs, flanks or abdomen that can be extracted and then injected into your buttocks. *You have a good skin tone in your buttocks and hips. *You have a medical condition that doesn't allow implants or your body doesn't react well to foreign objects. *While you heal, you will be willing (and able) to lay low and avoid sitting on your buttocks directly. If you are fine with those, then a Brazilian butt lift is preferable because recovery is easier from a Brazilian butt lift is faster and easier than having an implant. You can go back to your normal activities in a week or two after the procedure. Otherwise, a Gluteoplasty procedure is more appropriate for you.
