What is a Buttock Augmentation?
Sometimes buttock augmentation surgeries are referenced by another name, a Brazilian butt lift, uses fat grafts, implants, and sometimes a combination of the two procedures in order to increase the size of your buttocks.
Buttock augmentation surgery is right for anyone who does like the shape of their buttocks or who is looking to reshape and balance out their body. As previously mentioned, buttock augmentations can be done two ways with implants or a fat transfer. The commonly known name for the procedure that uses a fat deposit transfer is a “Brazilian butt lift”.
The results of this type of procedure can:
- Improve the aesthetic balance of your figure.
- Increase the roundness, fullness, and projection of your buttocks
- Increase and enhance your self-confidence and self-image.
Why are Brazilian Butt Lifts Popular?
Over the past few years a new culture and staple marker for beauty and sensuality has evolved to include round and fuller buttocks with a curvy lower back. Thus, a new culture has formed that has a desire to have buttock enhancements and augmentations. This option has become highly popular in recent years.
Much like breast augmentation surgery, women who are seeking more comfort and self-confidence about their bodies may turn to getting a buttock enhancement procedure in order to make their bodies more attractive. Like all body parts, your buttocks change in shape and size in accordance with weight changes, and age. As an overall generalization, women who see their buttocks as flat and deflated may opt to have their upper and outer buttock regions augmented in order to approve their appearance.
How are Butt Lifts Performed?
There are two options when it comes to gluteoplasty, or buttock enhancements, this can be done with either a fat graft or an implant. Going through with the fat grafting option involved harvesting fat from the abdomen, flank and back areas, then processing it and injecting it back into the body in the buttock region in order to give it a fuller and rounder appearance. There are more added benefits, to using the fat grafting option for your gluteoplasty. One additional benefit is that liposculpture is used on the lower back, which aids in the contouring of the body giving the buttocks a lifted and curvier appearance.
Implants are also an option for patients who lack adequate amounts body fat reserves that are required for fat grafting transfers.
Both procedures are done under general anesthesia and under a time limit of two hours. While recovery time lasts between one and two weeks depending on the depth and complexity of the augmentation operation.
Although results may vary, they are always excellent and patients usually share a highly positive outlook on the augmentation.
Recovery time for buttock augmentation surgery
After your procedure has finished, you will be taken to a recovery room and closely monitored – after a few hours in the recovery ward you may be permitted to leave and go home. However, before leaving, as with all surgeries, you will be given special instructions on how to care for your buttocks and any other areas that may have been used to harvest fat deposits; how and when to take medications orally or how to apply them in order to help aid in the healing process and reduce the risk and potential for infection, and also when to make a follow up appointment with your plastic surgeon.
You will also be told to wear a “support garment” that provides even amounts of compression, at all times following your surgery; in addition, your doctor will instruct you in the amount of time you need to wear your support garment and if there are any other garments that you may need to wear during your recovery process.
Each type of buttock augmentation has their own set of requirements and treatment plans for recovery, so your doctor will be the one to give you definitive instructions on how to proceed with your recovery time.
Both types of alterations recommend that you do not sit for prolonged periods of time after your procedure before sitting for long periods will damage the fat that was transplanted.
Final results for your augmentation will be noticeable three months after surgery.
