Butt Lifts: Alternatives to Implants

Butt Lifts Alternatives to ImplantsThere can be many reasons for people to be unhappy with their rear end. Whether it is a loss in lift due to aging or fluctuations in weight or you are unhappy with the way you look or feel in clothes, you may be looking for a solution. While implants can help, they may not be the right option for everyone. At South County Med Spa & Wellness, we are proud to offer patients a few alternative and less invasive options to achieve a rounder, fuller, and perkier buttocks. Let’s take a closer look.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift, also known as a BBL, is a form of cosmetic surgery in which fat is transferred to your buttocks. Using liposuction, fat is harvested from other areas of the body and then purified before being injected into specific areas of your buttocks that need more volume.

This procedure has become increasingly popular compared to other treatment options due to the smaller incisions, lower risk of infection, more natural-looking results, and the benefits of removing unwanted fat deposits to the buttocks through liposuction. Also considered a form of body contouring, many people seek Brazilian butt lifts to improve their shape or figure between their upper and lower body.

A Brazilian butt lift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure that can vary anywhere in length from 2-3 hours. The procedure is often performed under general anesthesia for patient comfort and safety. However, in cases where a smaller volume of fat is transferred, it may be performed with local anesthesia instead.

Fat is removed from the hips, lower back, back, or abdomen using liposuction which involves making a small incision and removing the fat through a surgical tube, or cannula. The removed fat is then treated and purified so that it can be placed back into the body safely. It is then injected in specific areas of the buttocks to create a rounder, more full-looking buttocks. The incisions are then closed using stitches and compression garments applied to aid in the recovery process.

What is Emsculpt?

A less invasive option for achieving your goals is Emsculpt. Emsculpt is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment that utilizes high-intensity electromagnetic pulses to force contractions in your muscles. When a muscle is exposed to intense contractions, it begins to adapt and reform to the new conditions, thus lifting your butt or toning your belly while melting fat away.

Unlike other body sculpting treatments, Emsculpt works to firm those areas. This treatment stimulates muscle engagement that occurs when you exercise, but at a quicker pace. In fact, a 30-minute treatment on the abdomen would be the equivalent of 20,000 sit-ups when it comes to your aesthetic results. While this may sound impossible, it can happen! The best part about Emsculpt, however, is that it can all be performed while you relax in our office. This treatment offers no downtime, so you can get back to your everyday activities right after your appointment.

Every individual is unique, so the frequency of treatment needed to yield the desired result may vary from patient to patient. We typically recommend 4 sessions, each consisting of a 30-minute treatment. Most patients can notice results immediately after treatment, but effects can improve and last up to 4 weeks after your final appointment.

Emsculpt isn’t for everyone, and you should consult with your doctor prior to scheduling an appointment for treatment. Those who have internal metal instruments or implants may not be eligible for Emsculpt, so talk to your doctor to see if you are a candidate. Emsculpt is a great treatment to help optimize the results of your exercise and diet regimen, so it is recommended to have the treatment done in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.
