What are the pros and cons of getting a Brazilian butt lift rather than butt implants? I have always been self-conscious about my flat buttocks. I am trying to choose between a Brazilian butt lift and butt implants. How would the shape of my buttocks diff

In brief: BBL vs Butt Implants

I believe the Brazilian Butt Lift technique is far superior to implants.
In fact, I use only natural fat grafting and no longer use butt implants because they have a higher complication rate and the results are not as good. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon .

In brief: Brazilian is best!

Implants bad! brazilian is natural, has less complications, better aesthetic results, less invasive, less costly, and if necessary, can easily be re-augmented at a later date without problems.

In brief: Implants vs Fat Inj

Bbl pros and cons a bbl is safer for the patient since there is a lower chance of a complication arising.
Since the implant procedure needs an incision, it is more likely to get infected and cause problems post-op. Also, since a bbl is a less complicated procedure, the healing time is also a lot shorter and patients can return to work sooner. However, you do need sufficient fat elsewhere in your.

In brief: Likely

Likely the biggest differences as the proposed shape and longevity of the result.
The implants have pre-determined shapes and there are limits to what size implant can be placed within the muscle while fat injections can be more tailored, but the long term survival of the fat injections is always in question as to how long it will last, and there can be cases where one side will last longer than the other.

In brief: Implant vs fat

The brazilian butt lift is great at contouring the buttock as well as your waist.
The results are quite dramatic in the right individual. If one does not have a lot of fat to transfer, then the implant will give a better result.

In brief: Buttock

Buttock enhancement has become more popular lately.
The term "butt lift" has been commonly used but there are actually several different procedures and of course even more different interpretations both by surgeons and patients of just what the term means. A typical "butt lift" involves no specific lifting in the traditional sense as with face lift or body lift involving cutting, repositioning and sewing. Typically, fat is removed by liposuction from one area of your body (usually the abdomen/flanks, hips and thighs) and transferred to the buttocks region to enhance the projection of the buttocks and thus create the illusion of a "lift". Another option is using silicone implants. Occasionally, an incision is made to lift the tissues but the trade-off is a potentially visible scar. The expert in the southeast is constantino mendieta in miami, fl who has studied the subject extensively and has taught many plastic surgeons his approach.
