Buttock augmentation procedures
Two different techniques can lift the buttocks: Silicone buttock implants and fat transfer (Brazilian butt lift).
Silicone implants is an invasive procedure and offer permanent results to the patient. Buttock implants are inserted into several positions of the buttock that fits the needs of a patient. The incision points include the gluteal crease, top of the buttock, or between the two cheeks.
The Brazilian Butt lift comprises three basic steps- Fat is removed from the lower back, hips, abdomen, or thighs with liposuction. The removed fat is prepared and purified for transfer. The surgeon injects this removed fat into various points of the buttocks to increase its volume and enhance the shape.
If the patient does not have a significant amount of fat, implants become necessary to contour the buttock. In this process, a surgeon makes two incisions at the crease of the buttock to create some space under the skin and place the implants. Proper care is taken by surgeons while placing these implants as the outline should not be visible on the top. A surgeon can also use some fat from other parts of the body to shape the edges of implants. Next, a silicone implant made to contour the buttocks is inserted in the muscle or above the gluteal muscle. After the implant is inserted, the surgeon closes the incision with sutures.
Are butt implants safe?
In general, Butt Implants have documented a high percent satisfaction rate concerning the type of surgery. However, regardless of the high success rate, Butt Implants have some risks based on the size measurements for implantation and care after the surgery. Some of the most familiar side effects include excessive bleeding after surgery and pain with scarring.
Considering all the precautionary steps to recover from the implants and following the surgeon’s advice may help the patient be on safe side without any side effects. On the whole butt implants can help you have great benefits in redesigning your body structure, and these processes are harm-free until you take good care and precautions.
Who needs butt implants?
Silicone Implants are best suited to those who do not have enough fat to undergo butt lift surgery. For example, a person whose buttocks are too small and he or she want a more balanced shape can go for butt implants. Also, if you have lost weight and your buttock is now saggy and flat, butt implants can be a possible solution.
The procedure of Brazilian Butt Lift
Brazilian butt lift refers to a familiar fat-replacement surgical practice that changes the buttocks’ size and shape without using silicone implants. Instead, extra fat is removed from other parts of the body using the liposuction procedure, and a fraction of this fat is afterwards injected inside the buttock. As a result, a significant amount of donor fat is required to attain a gratifying gluteal shape.
Considering the patient’s body measurements and gluteal dimensions, injection content ranges from 450 to 1100 ml each side. Conventional methods for inoculation of such significant amounts of fat require longer operating hours. In addition, they are related to surgeon fatigue and may result in compromised results and increased complications. So, the concept of Expansion Vibration Lipofilling was introduced.
This method has been the latest advancement in establishing safe butt lift practice worldwide.
EVL has brought a paradigm shift in the procedures of fat grafting. Instead of injecting fat into the patient’s body with the help of a syringe, a surgeon uses a vibrating cannula that creates space below the skin. This helps in propelling fat in the recipient areas. In addition, this syringe-free approach in EVL helps the surgeon to place the fat with more precision. It was not possible with other fat transfer techniques. EVL also distributes the fat evenly along the fascia, which prevents adhesions in the muscle.

How is EVL performed?
Given below are the steps involved in the EVL surgery:
- In this procedure, 4 and 5 mm cannulas which are angular and basket-shaped, are used.
- It is attached to a power assisted liposuction unit and a pressure pump.
- Power-assisted unit acts to cause vibrations in the cannula which creates space in a multi-directional and multi-layered fashion in the subcutaneous plane in buttocks.
- This creates maximum space for fat grafting in subcutaneous plane itself, thus avoiding the need to enter intramuscular and its associated complications. Also it ensures maximum viability of the injected fat cells.
- To move fat from the tip of the cannula, a tube is connected to it to work as a passage.
- The fat flows from a jar filled with fat, facilitated by the use of a pressure pump which results in smooth fat flow .
- To sum up, Expansion Vibration Lipofilling is vibration induced expansion of the space followed by filling of the space with fat(lipo).
IS EVL Safe?
Expansion Vibration Lipofilling enables a surgeon to perform expansion on the recipient site with the help of vibrating basket cannulas. It helps in creating a wider space to equalize and separate the tissues. The fat is then deposited in the expanded area to occupy the stented space. Surgeons have adopted EVL for brazillian butt lift to avoid the complications that used to occur in the traditional techniques. In addition to long surgical times, the risk of fat embolisms was also involved with traditional fat grafting techniques. This risk of fat embolism reduces to a great extent when a certified surgeon uses EVL for Brazillian butt lift.
Brazilian Butt Lift & Hour Glass Shape Figure
In addition to butt augmentation, Dr. Priya Bansal, a gold medallist board-certified plastic surgeon, provides circumferential liposuction to craft Hourglass shape for her patients to create a thinner waist. The hourglass body shape is distinguished by broad hip dimensions with a thinner waist measurement resulting in ideal and desired waist hip ratios.
Recovery after the surgery
It is an outpatient procedure. Patients may have some swelling and discomfort in the initial 24 to 48 hours. However, it is only temporary and may have a recovery time. The patient can return to routine activities in 1 to 3 days. Buttock offloading is advised with the use of a BBL pillow for few weeks. Any swelling or soreness subsides within the first few weeks and you can continue to see improving results everyday.
Benefits of Butt Lift
- Attractive Body Figure- Brazilian butt lift improves the shape of your buttock and slims the other parts of the body to give a curvier look.
- Natural Looking results- Brazilian butt lift produces a natural-looking buttock shape that looks more attractive. The major factor behind the natural-looking results is that the surgery involves the use of body tissues and fat.
- Safety Factor- Many patients feel more comfortable when fat is used to improve the buttock shape. This is because the fat transfer is autologous procedure, and it reduces the risk of foreign body reactions. The incisions and injection points are small in fat transfer.
- Faster Results- People spend so many hours in exercising to enhance their butt shape. Sometimes, these efforts yield less or no results. A Brazilian butt lift procedure is a three to four-hour procedure, and recovery takes around one or two weeks. It means a patient can show off the desired figure in just a few weeks after the surgery.
