Thanks to the latest endoscopic practices, the incisions that previously could make this surgery obvious are minimized.

If this cohesive gel-filled prosthesis breaks, it does not lose its shape, and its contents do not expand outside the prosthesis envelope.

- Saline: Saline implants are filled with sterile saline. They are placed empty and then filled once they are in place.

Regarding the location of the implants inside the breast, the techniques used by specialists depend on the physical characteristics of the patient, which determines whether the breast implants are located below the mammary gland (subglandular), the fascia of the pectoral muscle (subfascia) or under the pectoral muscle (submuscular).

With diet and exercise, patients reduce the body's fatty tissue globally, meaning that just as the fatty accumulations in the abdomen decrease, the fatty tissue in the face, breasts, hips, legs, etc. decreases.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Buttock augmentation is the medical term. Although it is called this way because it is a buttock augmentation with fat grafting. This procedure uses fat from other parts of the body and then injects it into the buttocks.

To obtain a more contoured shape, plastic surgeons can either add an implant or add fat. The Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat from other parts of the body. Many people feel this is an added benefit because those areas are liposuctioned at the same time. The fat that is usually taken can be from the back, stomach, hips or thighs. The fat that is extracted is purified and then used to shape and increase the buttocks.

This is a procedure used by both men and women and for many it looks more natural than an implant or filler of some type.
