A shapely, attractive derriere is definitely in style these days. If you are considering the best way to achieve that Kim Kardashian factor, you may be comparing butt implants to Brazilian Butt Lift (fat transfer via butt injections). Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman has found the Brazilian Butt Lift technique to provide the best results for the majority of his patients, but he can help you decide if buttock implants are a better choice for you, for any reason. Some of the advantages of fat transfer injections to the buttock are:

  • Uses your own natural fat
  • No artificial material is implanted
  • Eliminates risks of butt implant rupture/failure
  • Slims down an area of excess fat on your body
  • Optimally natural look and feel

Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of fat injections is that they provide Dr. Pakeman with maximum control over the final shape of your butt cheeks, flanks and butt contour. With an implant, your butt is limited to the shape and projection of the implant. But with a fat transfer, Dr. Pakeman can create a natural, lovely shape that will allow you to feel confident and beautiful. He may even suggest combining it with liposuction of the hips and surrounding areas in order to get the most desirable shape.

Another disadvantage of butt implants is that they do have to be replaced at some point, usually about a decade after the initial procedure. In certain cases, people report feeling abnormal when they sit down, like they’re sitting on top of an artificial material.
