Butt Implants or Brazilian Butt Lift?

The booty is officially back, which means plastic surgery offices across the country are OK-ed to answer the age-old question about the true difference between butt implants and a Brazilian butt lift. 

McLean based, Dr. Widder is one doctor who has established himself as an expert in this particular field. 

Below, we investigate the true difference between these two popular procedures. 

What Are Butt Implants?

Butt implants are silicone semi solid, ultra-soft implants which are used by a plastic surgeon in order to bring volume to the buttock area

Butt implants take in to account the durability required to support the role of the derriere. 

Implants are generally made of semi solid silicone and do not leak, deflate, or rupture. 

In some cases, your doctor may also perform liposuction in order to enhance the appearance of the implants for a more impressive transformation. 

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure where fat from one area of the body is transferred to the buttocks area. 

While a Brazilian butt lift sounds like a good idea, the success of the surgery largely depends on the survival of the fat cells in the new area. 

Unfortunately, the success rate is very low and most commonly the fat disappears within a few months or even sooner.

Due to the unpredictable nature of a Brazilian butt lift, patients sometimes get multiple surgeries to achieve their desired outcome. 

However, the end “result” is the same, very disappointing. 

Think about it this way, if fat injection was consistent and reliable, most women would have preferred it for breast augmentation surgery over breast implants. 

The reality is that the number one cosmetic surgery in the US is breast augmentation with implants…BBL doesn’t work!
