Buttock Augmentation Surgery
If you want to augment, reshape and enhance your buttock looks, the buttock augmentation surgery is the right procedure for you by providing you with an uplifted and attractive buttock profile. In the past ten years this buttock augmentation surgery has often been seen as a symbol of femininity and sensuality.
When to Consider Buttock Augmentation Surgery
- When your buttocks are too small for your body frame and you want a more attractive look.
- When your buttock shape is too flat or square and you would like more curves and a more youthful appearance.
- When weight loss or the aging process has left your buttocks loose, sagging, or flat.
How is a Buttock Augmentation Surgery procedure performed?
The two most popular procedures for buttock augmentation surgery are a) autologous which consist in transferring fat to your buttock (your own natural fatty tissue), also called the “Brazilian butt lift”, and b) gluteal implant surgery with or without fat transfer for additional contouring.
Autologous Fat Fransfer
In this buttocks augmentation surgery procedure the cosmetic surgeon takes fat from other areas of your body to be implanted and reshape your buttocks.
For patients who have a scarce amount of fat tissue, implants is the most appropriate procedure for reshaping a flat buttocks.
With this procedure a soft, well shaped silicone implant is placed through an incision hidden inside the natural buttock crease, During the consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will provide further details about this and others possible incision locations.
What are my options?
Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend an approach based on your personal conditions, body structure and aesthetic desires. Buttock implants may be chosen if you desire a more rounded appearance to your buttocks while autologous implant is a procedure designed to contour and reshape your buttocks. If you are very slender with little excess fat, then implants may be appropriate; however, after massive weight loss then autologous augmentation surgery or a combination of autologous and implant surgery may be more effective. The final decision is yours.
