Buttock enhancement procedures have grown in popularity as more women are becoming interested in body contouring. Over the last decade, the popularity of increasing the female butt size has grown exponentially.  Buttock enhancement procedures allow people to create curves and gain a more appealing silhouette. 

Women in their early 20’s naturally tend to have rounder backsides, however in later years the fat can decrease or become misshapen. Genetics and weight loss can also create a less than desirable shape as women age.  Buttock enhancement procedures can be in the form of lifting the butt, adding extra volume, or giving the behind a more round and plump shape. 

Brazilian Butt Lift or Butt Implants?

There are two options when it comes to enhancing the backside:  fat transfer or buttocks implants.  Fat transfer to the backside, also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift is by far the most popular way to augment the booty.  A buttock augmentation using an implant is the other option, but more and more plastic surgeons are recommending a BBL over butt implants. 

Are Butt Implants Safe?

A silicone butt implant can improve the appearance, but it can also slip out of position, because of the high rate of complication, none of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery are currently offering butt implant surgery. 

Our plastic surgeons offer Brazilian Butt Lifts, using fat transfer, which allow them to specifically target and sculpt areas where more fullness is needed.  Fat transfers provide incredible results that are natural and long lasting, without the risks associated with butt implants.

What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift?

During a Brazilian Butt Lift, liposuction is used to remove fat from one or several areas of the body. That fat is carefully harvested and then reinjected into the buttock area.  In addition to contouring the backside, this procedure allows people the benefit of liposuction to slim down stubborn areas of excess fat.
