Butt Implants vs Fat Transfer


A curvy butt is a universal sign of beauty nearly everywhere in the world, which makes it an extremely desirable trait for women. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with a beautifully round butt. Exercise may help improve your appearance, but it is unlikely to provide your desired results. The only way to truly get the curvy butt of your dreams is by undergoing a cosmetic augmentation procedure. The two common ways to medical enhance the appearance your butt are with implants or a fat transfer procedure. While both options are designed to achieve the same goal, they have their own set of benefits.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Since there are very little risks associated with the two butt augmentation procedures, almost anyone looking to enhance the size and shape of their body will qualify to be a candidate. The procedures will only be performed on patients that are not suffering from a serious illness. You must also have realistic expectations before beginning the treatment process. Butt implants will be the only option for very thin women. Since they only have a small amount of fat on their body, it will be impossible to enhance the butt with fat transferring.

What Happens During the Procedure?

General anesthesia will be administered when receiving butt implants. Two small incisions will be made between the butt cheeks and thigh once you are unable to feel pain. The butt implants are then inserted inside the incisions. The silicone implants are generally placed above the gluteal muscle. The incision are closed to complete the procedure. It will take approximately one hour to finish the butt implant surgery.

You will also have to be placed under general anesthesia when using fat transferring for your butt augmentation. Once you are asleep, the surgeon will make a small incision near your abdomen. A special cannula is then inserted into the incision to remove some fat via liposuction. The removed fat must be processed before it can be injected back into the body. A syringe is used to inject the processed fat directly into the butt. The exact length of the procedure is ultimately determined by the amount of fat being extracted and transferred.

How Long is the Recovery Process?

Your butt will be wrapped in bandages after the implant procedure is completed. You may also have a few small tubes placed under your skin to help remove any excess blood or fluid. After spending a short time in the recovery room, you will be allowed to go home the same day as your butt implant procedure. A support garment must be worn throughout the recovery process to ensure you get your desired results. It will take approximately two weeks to fully recover from the butt implant surgery. You can return to exercising after about four weeks.

You can expect to have a very similar recovery plan when undergoing the fat transfer procedure. You will be allowed to go home while wearing a support garment the same day as your surgery. It usually takes about one to two weeks to fully recover. You will be able to return to your normal activities at this time. You must make a few precautions during the recovery process. Sitting for too long can damage the newly grafted fat, which will alter your results. It is also recommended to sleep on your side to avoid any excess pressure on the butt.

What Type of Results Can I Expect?

Due to the nature of the procedures, you will be able to see your initial results immediately whether you use implants or fat transferring. It will take some time to see your final results because they will be hidden behind swelling. The results will continue to improve over time as the tissues settle and adjust to their new shape. It will usually take six to 12 months before your final results are finally revealed.

While you will be happy will your results with either procedure, you can only achieve completely natural results with fat transferring. The newly injected fat will look and feel identical to the rest of your butt. These authentic results can be hard to fully replicate with butt implants. Your body will still be able to gain or lose fat after the augmentation procedure, so it is imperative to avoid drastic weight fluctuations if you want to maintain your excellent results for a very long time.
