Surgical options to achieve a tank butt

24th Dec 2018

One of the recent physical beauty trends among women is having tank buttocks. Tank buttocks are bigger, fuller, and shapelier. They look aesthetically appealing, sensuous, and sexier. Since the buttocks are an important element of physical beauty among women, having smaller, flatter, or poorly shaped buttocks can create lower self-esteem. As such, many women explore their options to achieve tank buttocks. In this article, we will discuss the two effective and popular options to achieve the butt of your dreams.

Option 1: Butt implants surgery

Butt implants are prosthetic devices made of semi-solid silicone material. Unlike breast implants, butt implants are highly durable and immune to ruptures and leaks. Their robust construction makes it possible to achieve permanent aesthetic results.

The surgery is recommended for patients who do not have excess fat in their body areas and want to increase the size of their butt considerably. Butt implants come in different sizes and shapes. This means you can achieve almost any size of butt with the implants. However, plastic surgeons recommend patients to make sure the selected implant size accentuates their overall body outline and butt dimensions.

The butt implants will stay with you as long as other complications do not occur. If complications like capsular contracture, implant displacement, or infections occur, it may become necessary to have the implants removed. Also, it is important to have the surgery performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, which means you’ll remain fully asleep throughout the procedure. It is an outpatient surgery, meaning you will go home a few hours following the operation if your health remains stable.

After administering the anesthesia, the plastic surgeon will make an incision on your butt. The shape, size, and type of incision depend on a number of factors like your aesthetic goals, the surgeon’s preferences, and the implant size.

In the second step, the implants would be inserted into the butt through the incisions. Afterwards, the plastic surgeon will properly place them in the intended pockets so the desired butt shape and size are achieved. Common implant placement options are under the gluteal muscle, within the gluteal muscle, and above the gluteal muscle.

Most plastic surgeons prefer to place the implant below or within the gluteal muscle because these options entail lower risks. Placing the implant above the butt muscle entails greater risks of implant displacement and capsular contracture. The surgeon will carefully place the implants in the intended position, making sure the expected aesthetic results are fully achieved.

In the last step, the plastic surgeon will close and suture the incisions. The doctor will make sure the incisions are properly sutured so they can develop into normal scars. Carelessness during this step may trigger the development of abnormal scarring.

Option 2: Brazilian butt lift

The Brazilian butt lift, also popularly known as fat transfer, is an effective and popular plastic surgery procedure to enhance your rear ends. It has the power to transform your body from a square shape to an hourglass figure.

The Brazilian butt lift, which is performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation, starts with the removal of excess fat from different areas of your body. If you do not have excess, unwanted fat in your body, you will not qualify for the surgery. The fat is extracted with the help of liposuction. The common fat donor sites include the abdomen, sides, love handles, upper back, and thighs.

The surgeon first injects a tumescent solution into the fat donor site to help extricate the fat cells from the surrounding tissues. Next, a tiny incision is placed in the area, followed by the insertion of a hollow tube called a cannula into the liposuction site. The back and forth motion of the tube helps release the fat cells from the surrounding tissues.

A suction tube or a special syringe connected to the cannula is then used to remove the dislodged fat cells. Here it is important to keep in mind that meticulous care needs to be taken during the fat extraction process. The surgeon will try his best to keep as many fat cells intact and alive as possible. For this reason, the surgeon may use special syringes to remove the fat instead of a high-pressure suction pump.

The common body areas suctioned during this step include the abdomen, sides, flanks, thighs, and the upper back region. Also, the surgeon will contour these areas during liposuction so they can also appear aesthetically enhanced. Even liposuction alone will make your butt look prominent by removing the stubborn fat deposits from the surrounding areas.

After removing the excess fat from your body, the fat cells will be processed and purified in a decanting and centrifugation process. It is important to keep in mind that out of all the fat cells removed from your body, only the healthiest and most intact cells will be picked for transfer to your buttocks.

The third and last step of the Brazilian butt lift is called fat grafting. During this step, the fat cells processed and selected from step 2 are re-injected inside the buttocks with special needles. This may require hundreds of fat injections. The plastic surgeon will inject tiny amounts of the processed fat cells into the different region of the butt at varying distances and depths so the buttocks are beautifully contoured and the body does not absorb the fat.


Tank buttocks come with many benefits. They make women look beautiful, sexier, and sensuous. Since there are only a few women who have naturally bigger, shapelier, and sexier booties, most women rely on outside procedures to get tank buttocks. The most effective ways to achieve tank buttocks are via implant surgery and the Brazilian butt lift. Both of these procedures have been explained in detail above.
