Silicone Implants vs. Fat Transfer for Buttock Augmentation
October 20th, 2011 | Posted in: Buttock Augmentation |
The Brazilian Butt Lift has become much more popular than buttock implants for shaping the lower half of the body. It is a procedure where fat is harvested from available areas and transferred into the buttocks for a more prominent, perky look. Harvesting fat from surrounding areas, such as the hips, flanks, abdomen, low back, and thighs, helps to further shape and accentuate the butt for a more sensual body profile. Since you are using your own fat, it is not only safer, but looks more natural. Fat transfer to the buttocks is also more customized for each person.
If a person is too thin to harvest sufficient fat for augmentation, then silicone buttock implants would likely be a better choice. Since you are using implants, there is a higher risk of infection compared to fat grafting. Also, implants do not feel as natural as your own fat.
