Butt lift is a surgical operation to have firmer and aesthetic look with fat injection or silicone implants. Method for this operation is determined based on body shape of the patient. While butt lifting with fat injection works best for some patients, silicone implant can work better for other.
Butt lifting methods
Butt lifting can be applied for butt augmentation or lifting. When there is excessive fat accumulation in butt region, removing this fat is also a butt lifting method. This removed fat can be injected to other parts of the body.
Butt lifting with silicone implant
Silicone implants are often preferred for butt augmentation but these implants can also be applied for lifting. Structure of silicone implants in butt operation is different than breast operations. Lifting operation is conducted based on body shape of the individual and solid silicones with reduced fluidity are used. Silicone implants can be used for a life time and this method increases self-confidence levels of the individuals.
Butt lifting is preferred by women with flat butt and results of this operation are successful. This operation is applied under general anaesthesia. It will take 3 hours and patients can go back to normal life in one week.
Butt lifting with fat injection
Butt lifting with fat injection (Brazilian Butt Lift-BBL) is a method where fat collected from different parts of the body are injected to butt for butt lifting or butt augmentation. This operation is applied under general anaesthesia and this operation can take 1.30 hours. Fat injection operation is relatively new compared to other methods and in 1.5 years after the operation, 20-30% of injected fat disappears. Remaining fat are permanent. Fat injection can be combined with other applications.
* Regardless of the methods, patients must avoid blood thinners 1 week before and 1 week after the butt operation (as in other operations).
