In recent years there has been a huge rise in popularity of attaining the perfect hourglass figure. With celebrities like the Kardashians and many Instagram pages dedicated to “booty gains”, one can’t help but judge their own figures in the mirror. The growing popularity of the perfectly round buttock in the fitness and celebrity industries have made the Brazilian butt Lift (BBL) and Buttock implants one of the most popular surgeries for glute enhancement.

A Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without surgical implants. Excess fat is removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back or thighs with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then injected into the buttocks.

For those who are very lean, they may not have enough fat for the liposuction procedure, and buttock implants may be the only way to achieve the desired size increase, similar to breast augmentation.

It is important to understand the added risks of having implants, including capsular contracture and a higher risk for infection. Buttock implants can also look and feel less natural compared to a Brazilian butt lift. Buttock implants are also not a permanent fixture and will need to be replaced after a number of years. Despite the high success rate, surgery still poses risks. Some of the most common side effects include:

  • Pain
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Fluid or blood accumulation underneath the buttocks
  • Allergic reactions
  • Skin loss
  • Nausea and vomiting from anesthesia
  • Glute atrophy

It’s also possible for the silicone implants to move or slip out of place. This can leave you with an uneven and unnatural appearance in the buttocks. Fat grafting can also lead to asymmetry due to fat absorption in the body. We see these patients on a daily basis at CostaSpine. If the side effects mentioned above are not enough, can you imagine the dysfunction and stress these type of procedures put on the natural BIOMECHANICS of the body? This causes massive postural defects and a lot of pain. If you have had or are planning to have these procedures done please we implore you to seek medical advice from our professionals so the long term implications can be stopped in their tracks.

The buttocks gluteal muscles, among the largest in the body, are necessary for stability, movement, and posture. In short, they’re very important. When having surgery to these areas the gluteal muscles may be injured or become dysfunctional. Having dysfunctional glutes can lead to variety of problems, from chronic low back and hip pain to a shortened range of motion.

Unfortunately, there is no quick way to develop the perfect buttock. Many people focus on the aesthetics of the glutes rather than the function. Those who have any form of buttock augmentation often end up with abnormal biomechanics, posture and pain. This is due to the increase in weight around the pelvic area.
