The Risk of Silicone Butt Implants

Being comfortable with your body is an important feeling for most people. Deciding that plastic surgery will help enhance your natural beauty while giving you the feeling of comfort is a big step that should be made with a full understanding of the risks associated with the procedure. Specifically, if you are considering a butt augmentation with silicone implants, it’s important to know the possible risk that associated with these procedures.

Traditionally, a butt augmentation can be performed with butt implants, if you so choose. However, it’s important to note that there are safer alternatives that when used reduce the likelihood of complications down the road. Butt implants are commonly filed with solid silicone, which tends to be durable and able to withstand added pressure. However, silicone butt implants can cause a host of problems such as fluid collection, implant displacement or movement, as well as capsular contracture. On the off chance that there are no major complications, silicone butt implants are still semi-permanent (your original silicone butt implants will need to be replaced in about 8 to 12 years). Furthermore, the finish look tends to be less natural than other butt augmentation procedures, especially when compared to the results of a Brazilian butt lift. 

A Brazilian butt lift involves the transfer of fat from a person’s own body, typically from the abdomen, back, or thighs. This particular kind of butt lift is much safer and more natural looking. However, the overall enhancement tends to be subtler due to the fact that a small percentage of the fat that is transferred during a Brazilian butt lift is typically reabsorbed by the body’s immune system.

When looking for butt augmentation options, it’s clear to see that a Brazilian butt lift not only produces better results, but is also much safer than choosing silicone implants.
