Buttock Enhancement

Many women desire a well-shaped, substantial backside. Some women want a more sizable behind to bring balance to curvy figures, and others want to create more feminine contours to their bodies by adding more curves. Butt enhancement patients have a choice between butt augmentation with implants or the Brazilian Butt Lift, but which is the best option? The answer to this question will vary from patient to patient, depending on their bodies, preferences, and goals. 

What Are the Benefits of Butt Augmentation With Implants? 


  • It can dramatically increase the size of the buttocks
  • Has immediately visible results
  • Creates a defined, round shape 
  • Adds substantial volume, especially suitable for augmenting flat buttocks 
  • Results are long-lasting 


  • There is a chance that your body will reject the silicone implants, resulting in them needing to be removed  
  • Implant complications may occur in some patients

What Are the Benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift? 


  • Uses the patient’s unwanted excess body fat to increase the volume of the buttocks 
  • Improves the appearance of body contours where the fat is extracted
  • Creates natural-looking results 
  • Gives the newly augmented buttocks a natural feel
  • There is no risk of your body rejecting the fat since it comes from your own body 


  • Final results take around six to eight weeks to fully appear due to the body absorbing some of the transferred fat 
  • It is not a good fit for women who want larger and more dramatic results 

What Results Can Be Expected From a Butt Augmentation With Implants? 

Women who opt for a butt augmentation with implants can enjoy fuller, rounder, and firmer buttocks. Perhaps the most significant benefit of using implants for your butt augmentation is that the size of the buttocks can be dramatically increased. Implants give your behind a firm, defined appearance designed to last. 

A butt augmentation with implants is often the best option for women with naturally flat or poorly defined butts, as the implants can provide a solid structure and shape. This is also a good option for women who want to increase the volume of their buttocks but don’t have enough excess fat in other body areas to use for fat transfer. 

What Do Brazilian Butt Lift Results Look Like? 

Many women who choose to get a BBL like that their own fat is used for the procedure. BBL results are subtle and natural-looking and also have a natural feel. After the swelling goes down and the resorption process is finished, the remaining transferred fat will be there to stay and can be enjoyed for a long time. 

During Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, liposuction is used to remove excess fat from body areas where it is unwanted, such as the stomach or thighs. BBL patients like that they are able to improve not only the shape and size of their buttocks but also other body areas by removing unwanted fat.
