Do Brazilian buttock augmentation results last longer?

Do the results of Brazilian buttock augmentations last longer than traditional butt augmentation procedures? And if they do, why? What do the Brazilians know about buttocks that we don't here in the States?

Buttock enhancement is an increasingly popular procedure. It allows flat or poorly developed buttocks to be enhanced. While many women will increase the size of their breasts, they find that there is an imbalance between their front and the back.
There are many women who have the curves of the breasts and the thighs, and need to round out the buttocks as well. This procedure is especially popular with Latinos and African Americans, but is often performed as well on whites.
Women who are unhappy with the size of their buttocks frequently seek buttock enhancement. Some feel their buttocks lack shape, while others want to have a more sensuous backside by making them larger and rounder.
Buttock enhancement is usually quite successful at making the bottom larger and shapelier. This has helped many women gain that more sensuous appearance. Whatever fat survives will stay with you unless you lose a significant amount of weight. Best of luck!

Thank you for sharing your question.  A Brazillian Buttock Augmentation is an American Procedure.  A Plastic Surgeon in Brazil was the first to try and perform this procedure many years ago.  This is where the name comes from.  The procedure consists of having Liposuction on the body where fat deposits are unwanted, and then injecting the concentrated fat into the buttocks.  Traditional Buttock augmentation usually refers to a Buttock Implant.  Some doctors still perform Butt Augmentation surgery with implants.  The Brazillian procedure is becoming more common because it is a bit safer with less complications to use your own fat over a foreign body(implant).  I hope this information was helpful to you.

Best Wishes, Dr. B.

Brazilian butt lift is an excellent operation using fat grafting to shape and volumize the buttock and hips. It is a great option along with butt implants for the right patient. Like all operations, the best one is the one that is able to provide you with the result your looking for. Good Luc
