A few weeks ago I went to a Black Eyed Peas Concert and was reminded of the sheer number of catchy songs they sing. But the one that stayed with me was “My Humps.” You know the one – “What you gon’ do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk?” That song, a modern day ode to the curves of a woman’s body, came out in 2005, and today, in 2010, almost any woman can have those “humps” with two popular butt enhancement procedures – implants or the Brazilian Butt Lift. And why not? Ten years ago, J Lo. May have been the only celebrity with a well endowed butt, but (pun intended) today, there is Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and Jessica Biel to name a few. There is no doubt – big butts are in!
For men and women who want to enhance their butt one of these two procedures can work wonders by increasing the contours of the buttocks and creating a more round, full shape. Both procedures will also give the appearance of a lift in the buttock region. There are big differences between butt implants and Brazilian Butt Lift so let’s discuss each in a bit of detail.
Butt implants, like breast and calf implants, are used to improve the shape and increase the size of the area. They are made of silicone and feel like a well-toned muscle. Like other implants, they come in several sizes and are round or oval. Once implanted, your butt will feel natural and firm.
During surgery the implant is inserted under the gluteus muscle and away from the bony, sits bones through an incision that is made down the buttock crease. The result is a more contoured, fuller and perkier butt. Take a look at these before and after pictures to get a better idea of what butt implants can do for you:

Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift has been increasing in popularity lately. During this procedure fat is harvested from another part of the body and then inserted into the buttocks to enhance them. You can see the appeal of using something that your body already creates as opposed to something foreign. It is worth noting that precisely because fat is part of the body, some of the re-inserted fat tissue will be reabsorbed by your body. So up to three months after the procedure, there is the chance that the size of your butt will change. Some people worry that this will create a lumpy end result, but it is absolutely not true.
This procedure has the added bonus of getting liposuction to a problem area in order to harvest the fat for the buttocks. It really is a win-win!
