Brazilian buttock lift
- buttocks are softer
- patient has less pain
- patient has faster recovery
- there is less risk of infection
- added benefit of liposuction in the waist and abdomen for a better shape
In some patients who are thin or do not have enough fat for liposuction and fat injection, your cosmetic plastic surgeon must resort to enlargement of the buttocks using silicone implants. It’s not that this is a difficult procedure for a plastic surgeon or that there is more pain and risk associated with this surgery compared to the Brazilian method; it’s just that there is what I call an “MC Hammer” effect at play.
Buttock augmentation with silicone implants surgery
Silicone implant surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1.5 hours. A vertical incision is made between the two buttock cheeks, and your plastic surgeon creates a pocket under the gluteal muscles of the buttocks into which the implants are placed. In some cases, a little liposuction is also performed to round out the edges for a better contour.
