Buttock augmentation is a procedure that reshapes and enhances your gluteal area, providing you with an uplifted and shapelier buttock profile. In the past ten years, this procedure has become increasingly popular worldwide, with shapely buttocks often seen as a symbol of femininity and sensuality. The most frequent methods for enlarging and reshaping your buttocks are fat grafting using your own natural fatty tissue (popularly referred to as the Brazilian butt lift), or with buttock implants.
When to Consider Buttock Augmentation ?
If your buttocks are too small for your body frame and you want a more balanced look
If your buttock shape is too flat or square and you would like more curves and a more youthful appearance
If weight loss or the aging process has left your buttocks loose, sagging, or flat
If clothes and swimwear do not fit properly on your figure
How is a buttock augmentation procedure performed?
The two most popular methods for buttock augmentation are autologous fat transfer (using your own natural fatty tissue), also called the Brazilian butt lift, and gluteal implant surgery with or without fat transfer for additional contouring.
Autologous fat transfer
This procedure takes fat from one area of your body and uses it to enhance and reshape your buttocks.
Liposuction with suction tubes (cannulas) is used to remove fatty tissue from areas of your body with excess tissue, such as the abdomen, hips, back, or thighs.
The fat is then processed for fat transfer.
The fat is reinjected using syringes connected to cannulas.
Implants are most appropriate for treating flat or poorly defined buttocks, particularly for patients who have limited fatty tissue.
With this procedure a soft, shaped silicone implant is placed through an incision hidden inside the natural buttock crease. The implant is positioned in a pocket below the large buttock (gluteal) muscle and above the pelvic bone.
