Whether you are a man or a woman, chances are that you want to an attractive derrière. You probably spend a great deal of time and effort on toning and tightening your backside with the hopes of achieving the perfect contours and shape. Unfortunately, nature does not always play along with our personal goals, but that does not mean that you have to settle for a flat, undefined posterior. Silicone buttock implants give you the shape that you want while maintaining a firm and natural feel.
How Buttock Implants Work
Silicone is a gel-like material that has been used for breast implants and other cosmetic applications for many years. The thickness of the liquid allows it to mimic other tissues in the body. Buttock implants work by adding volume to your butt to give it a more contoured appearance. You can choose from a variety of styles and shapes to achieve the look that you are trying to get at the gym.
Buttock Iplants vs. Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift is a technique that uses harvested fat from your body to sculpt and shape the buttocks. Not everyone is a good candidate for fat grafting, though. The buttocks may be too underdefined or you may not have enough donor fat for the procedure. Buttock implants are appropriate for almost any butt shape and degree of enhancement.
Skin Quality Matters
If you have sagging skin on your buttocks, you may not be the best candidate for buttock implants. While the surgery does add fullness, the change may not be enough to tighten the skin. A thigh lift may be needed in conjunction with your buttock implants to remove the excess skin. Lipotherme™, laser liposuction and liposuction can be added to remove any pockets of stubborn fat.

Do you have a flat derriere or are you looking for more voluptuous curves to your backside? A Brazilian butt lift may be just the thing for you. For years, synthetic implants were the go-to way to enhance the buttocks, and while they still remain an option, the Brazilian butt lift is much more common today.
How It Works The Brazilian butt lift procedure uses a cannula (a small, hollow tube) and a suction device to extract connective tissue that stores fat from areas like your hips, waist, abdomen or thighs. Your surgeon will recommend the best areas to target for fat cells for a successful outcome. Once the fat cells have been removed, they will go through a purification process to extract the healthiest cells and prepare them for transplantation. The fat cells are then injected in tiny amounts into the buttocks to add volume and create a uniform, smooth appearance.
Recovery Time Most patients can return to work in about a week. In some cases, recovery time can be longer, such as if your job requires more physical activity like lifting or being on your feet for long periods of time. You will experience some bruising and swelling after the procedure, which will diminish in three to four weeks.
Are You a Candidate? You are an ideal patient for a Brazilian butt lift if you have enough fat in at least two areas of your body that can be used to reshape their buttocks. You should also be in good overall health and have the desire to correct a sagging or flat posterior. This procedure also works well on patients who have recently lost weight and want to balance out their overall curves. It’s important for you to be at your ideal weight for best results, and you should be committed to a healthy diet and exercise routine. Ideal candidates are also non-smokers who have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.
