Brazilian Butt Lift: Surgical Vs. Non-Surgical Options
By Coastal Cosmetic | Nov 01, 2019 | Blog, Body Sculpting
It can be difficult to achieve the shapely bottom that is often desired, but the Brazilian butt lift technique can make it much more attainable. When it comes to this procedure, there are two main options for patients who are trying to attain their cosmetic goals. One is a surgical technique that offers a more dramatic effect, while the other is a non-surgical technique for patients who would prefer not to have surgery but still reap the benefits of a curvier physique.
Traditional Surgical Lift
The surgical Brazilian butt lift is an umbrella term for two procedures that aim to add shape and fullness to patients seeking a curvier figure. The first option for this procedure includes liposuction of the hips, thighs, and lower buttocks to harvest fatty tissue. The tissue is then purified and redistributed into the buttocks, leaving the patient with a more proportional and curvaceous appearance to the hips and buttocks. The second surgical option for a Brazilian butt lift is similar to breast augmentation in that implants are inserted into the buttocks to increase volume to the area.
For patients who are reluctant to go under the knife, there is a non-surgical option for a Brazilian butt lift that includes injecting a filler into the buttock area. The filler, known as Sculptra®, works by triggering an inflammatory response in the body that triggers the patient’s own collagen and scar tissue to grow. However, this non-surgical option is not a substitute for implants or fat grafting. Instead, patients should expect a subtle lift, a modest volume increase, improvement of skin texture, cellulite reduction, and some contouring. The non-surgical procedure is perfect for those that are looking for subtle results that naturally fade over time and for those that are looking for minimal downtime. In addition, it is an excellent option for those patients who have no interest in the liposuction that a traditional surgical lift would include.
