In recent years, the butt has received a lot of attention as a defining feature of feminine beauty. Round, well-defined buttocks are desirable and attractive, and a butt lift or butt augmentation can help you achieve this look.
Whether you have always been dissatisfied with the natural shape of your derriere, or have recently experienced an undesirable change in their shape and definition, one or a combination of these procedures may help.
Steps To Performing A Butt Lift
The primary purpose of a butt lift is to remove excess skin that has been sagging. Most everyone experiences some sagging in the buttocks as they age (caused by a decrease in collagen levels), but some individuals are genetically predisposed to be more susceptible to these changes at an earlier age. Others may find after significant weight loss that they have also lost shape and definition in the buttocks due to the decreased volume of fat, and now have excess skin that hangs loosely.
This surgery is performed by creating an incision along the top of the buttocks, at the edge of the lower back. Through these incisions, excess skin is removed. Oftentimes, liposuction is performed at the same time to remove unwanted fat, but this is not the primary purpose of a butt lift. Once the loose, extra skin has been removed, the incision can be used to access and tighten the remaining skin and underlying tissue.
Butt Augmentation: Brazilian Vs. Implants
When volume in the buttocks has been lost due to age or weight loss, or the buttocks simply lack the desired shape and definition, a butt augmentation can be performed to increase volume and improve definition. The augmentation can be performed one of two ways:
The use of silicone to add shape and volume to the buttocks is the traditional method, but it has largely been replaced in recent years by the Brazilian. One benefit of implants is that the results are more permanent. They have very predictable results due to the consistent contour of the implants.
Brazilian (Fat Transfer)
This newer and immensely popular method of butt augmentation consists of removing fat from other areas of the body through liposuction. The fat is then processed and purified in a sterile machine before being reinjected into the buttocks to add volume, creating a more natural and organic look than synthetic implants. This can also have the additional benefit of removing unwanted fat from other areas of the body.
