BUTTOCK ENHANCEMENT - AUGMENTATION

Buttock Enhancement |  Gluteal Augmentation and Lift

Buttock augmentation improves the contour, size and shape of the buttocks. A buttock lift improves the tone of the underlying tissue in the buttocks. A Brazilian butt lift is a common buttock enhancement procedure.

 

What are buttock enhancement surgeries?

Buttock augmentation

Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation, is used to improve the contour, size and/or shape of the buttocks. This is done through the use of buttock implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of the two.

 

Buttock implants are silicone-filled devices that are surgically placed deep within the tissues of the buttock. Buttock augmentation through the use of fat grafting involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body into the tissues of the buttocks. This technique is sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift.

 

What buttock augmentation surgery can do

Increase fullness, roundness and projection of your butt or buttocks

Improve the balance of your figure

Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

In addition to buttock augmentation procedures, a buttock lift can be accomplished by the surgical removal of soft tissue.

 

Buttock lift

A buttock lift, or gluteal lift, improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat in the buttock area.

 

Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the buttocks.

 

In order to achieve a smoother and more pleasing contour, excess sagging skin and fat are removed. A traditional gluteal lift will not make a butt larger, but may improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface. This procedure may be included in a body lift or may be performed separately.

 

What a buttock lift can't do

Buttock lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat nor are they intended to add volume to the buttocks. Fat grafting, buttock implants or auto-augmentation (when some of your own tissue is left underneath the skin) can be used to add volume. Liposuction is sometimes added for better contouring.

 

Who is a good candidate for buttock enhancement?

Buttock enhancement surgeries are highly individualized procedures. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else's desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

 

Who is a good candidate for buttock augmentation?

You may be a good candidate for buttock augmentation if:

 

You are physically healthy

You have realistic expectations

You are bothered by the feeling that your butt is too small

You are unhappy with the roundness or general shape of your butt

Your butt is asymmetrical

Who is a good candidate for a buttock lift?

In general, buttock lift candidates include:

 

Individuals with significant soft tissue looseness in the gluteal area

Healthy individuals without medical conditions that impair healing or increase risk of surgery

Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what gluteal lift surgery can accomplish

Nonsmokers

Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and fitness

 

What should I expect during my buttock enhancement recovery?

After your buttock enhancement procedure, dressings/bandages will be applied to the incisions. Small, thin tubes may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect. You will be taken into a recovery area to be closely monitored, and may be permitted to go home after a few hours.

 

You will be instructed to wear a support garment around-the-clock following your surgery. Your surgeon will tell you how long you need to wear the garment and if there are any other garments that you may have to wear during your recovery.

 

You will be given specific instructions that may include:

 

How to care for your surgical site(s) following surgery

Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing

Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health

How to care for your drains

When to follow up with your plastic surgeon

Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recovery period:

 

Where will I be taken after my surgery is complete?

What medication will I be given or prescribed after surgery?

Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery? When will they be removed?

When can I bathe after surgery and how may I bathe?

Are stitches removed? When?

When will the drains be removed?

When can I resume normal activity, driving and exercise?

When do I return for follow-up care?

Buttock augmentation with fat grafting

You will be asked to avoid prolonged sitting for about two weeks (some surgeons prefer longer). This is very important because prolonged sitting will damage the fat.

 

You will also be encouraged to sleep face down or on your side. When you do have to sit, you will have to use a pillow or cushion placed behind the legs (hamstring muscles) to help raise the buttocks, avoiding pressure onto the fat grafts.

 

Your surgeon may encourage you to seek a lymphatic massage from a licensed massage therapist. You can generally resume exercise after six to eight weeks.

 

Buttock enhancement recovery at home

If you experience shortness of breath, chest pains or unusual heart beats, seek medical attention immediately. Should any of these complications occur, you may require hospitalization and additional treatment.

 

What results should I expect after buttock enhancement?

The results of buttock augmentation and/or buttock lift surgery are visible almost immediately. However, it will take some time for the final results of the procedure to fully develop. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from surgery.

 

The tissues will settle a little within the first 3-6 months and the scarring can take up to two years to fade to its mature level. Some visible scars will remain, but the overall results are long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness. However, most of your initial improvement should remain.

 

Although good results are expected from your buttock enhancement surgery, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

 

Following your physician's instructions is essential to the success of your surgery. It is important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, motion, swelling or abrasion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.

 

If your procedure was performed with fat transfer, it can take up to a year to see your final results. Some of the fat that leads to the initial shape after surgery will be reabsorbed by your body.

 

The results of your buttock augmentation surgery will be long-lasting. Over time, your butt's size and shape can continue to change due to aging and gravity. You'll be able to retain your new look longer if you maintain your weight and keep a healthy lifestyle.

 

If your surgery was performed with fat transfer, it is important to keep in mind that this fat can behave like any other fat in your body. If you gain weight, the fat in your buttocks may grow. If you lose weight, you may lose some of the volume in the buttocks as the fat shrinks.
