Butt Implants / Brazilian Butt Lift

butt implants
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift and/or Butt implants? 

Buttocks Augmentation can be accomplished by two techniques: Using implants to enhance size and shape or using your own fat from other areas of your body to be transferred into your butt. Liposuction with fat transfer goes by its popular name ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’, is a cosmetic procedure where your gluteus "buttocks" reshaped & incremented for a bigger, perkier, buttocks appearance and feel.  This excess fat removed will be harvested and relocated into your butt area.

Butt implants, on the other hand,  is a cohesive-gel prosthesis placed in your butt that will enhance the overall feeling and appearance as well, but with a different look & feel. As per what is the right option for you, consult with our Case Managers so we can learn more about your expectations and assist you to get the results you've been craving for! 
How are Butt Implants or Brazilian Butt Lift performed at Hospital de la Familia? 

We begin butt augmentation surgery by understanding your desired results. It is in our best interest that we fully understand what look and feel you wish to accomplish after surgery so a physical consultation is required. Once we finalize the surgical plan, the procedure can be performed with Regional Blockage & IV sedation, Local Anesthesia, or General. Butt Implants surgery takes no more than 1 hour. Brazilian Butt Lift can take 2-3, depending on how many areas of liposuction will be performed. For Butt Implants, the incisions take place inside the butt cheeks ( less visibility ) & recovery takes several weeks.  It's common to request  "Breast Implants in the Butt" as it is usually cheaper than Butt Implants. The visual difference is, on many occasions, quite minor.  TheButt Implants brands we use are Nagor & Eurosilicone. Breast Implants in the Butt is usually $ 500 USD more affordable than Butt Implants which is a reason why many patients prefer that method.  

On the other hand, "Liposuction with Brazilian Butt Lift" is an all-natural alternative to increase the size & shape of your butt. This procedure is becoming more & more popular as the results tend to have a more natural look and the risks of infection are much smaller. The procedure starts by removing excess fat from your Abdominal, Flanks, and Back areas ( 5 total ). Once the excess fat is removed a cleansing process begins where the excess fat is separated from all other liquids removed during surgery. The procedure continues by applying 5-10 fat injections to transfer the fat to your buttocks area(s). It is common to expect a 30% reabsorption of the fat & expect 70% of the fat transferred to stay permanent ( unless weight loss happens ). The results are very natural. Please discuss with your Case Manager how to get started so we can approve you for Liposuction in Multiple areas & Brazilian Butt Lift surgery ( Fat transfer ).
