Brazilian Butt Lift vs. Butt Augmentation: Which Procedure Is Right for You?

If you are unhappy with the fullness of your buttocks or are concerned about sagging in that area, your cosmetic surgeon has solutions that can help. Both the Brazilian butt lift and butt augmentation procedures can help you achieve a shapelier physique, allowing you to feel more confident in your appearance. These procedures achieve similar results with different techniques, so how can you tell which one is right for you? Your cosmetic surgeon will work closely with you to pick the procedure that will give you the results that you desire. Here is a look at how these cosmetic surgeries compare and who is a good candidate for each procedure.

Brazilian butt lift

During a Brazilian butt lift , your cosmetic surgeon will remove fat from two different areas of the body and inject it into your buttocks in order to increase volume. By deciding where to put the injections, your surgeon can also change the contour of the buttocks to create a lifted appearance.

To begin this procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will first perform liposuction on the chosen donor sites to remove the fat. Next, the fat cells will be purified before being injected into the buttocks. The fat will be injected in layers to create a smooth, lifted effect.

Butt augmentation

Butt augmentation is performed to create the same lifted, fuller appearance that Brazilian butt lifts can achieve, but instead of using fat from another part of the body, implants are used. Silicone implants are placed under the muscle, and unlike silicone breast implants, there is no risk of rupturing, because the implants are solid rather than soft or liquid. Butt augmentation implants are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, allowing your surgeon to choose the most natural fit for your body type.

Choosing a procedure

Brazilian butt lifts are less invasive procedures than butt augmentations, but they are only appropriate for patients who have enough donor fat on other parts of the body to use. People without sufficient fat for transfer may benefit from butt augmentation instead. When performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon, both procedures produce reliable results.
