What is Buttock Augmentation?

For those of us with a flat butt, or an out of proportion figure buttock augmentation could be the answer to our prayers. Having a flat butt can be a big insecurity for people in this day an age where having a ‘big booty’ is emphasised as the ideal. Moreover, sometimes no amount of squatting or lunging will help us to build the butt shape we desire. As such, buttock augmentation is the perfect way to create exactly the butt size and shape you desire in one simple procedure. Gone are the days of feeling insecure about your silhouette or how clothes fit you due to your flat butt. After the procedure, patients report to feeling more self-confident and happy with their body shape.

What Does Butt Augmentation Entail?

Buttock augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves the insertion of implants into the patient’s buttocks, so as to create a more shapely and larger butt. The procedure can be performed using implants or fat transfer, depending on the case. In most cases the procedure is finished within three hours and performed as an outpatient procedure. However, some cases will necessitate that it be performed as an inpatient procedure depending on your anatomy and the extent of the procedure.

During the actual procedure an incision is made in the crease of your buttocks or where your butt cheeks meet the top of your thighs. Next your surgeon makes a pocket above or below the muscle, where the implant is placed. Once the implant is placed your surgeon will make sure that each cheek is symmetrical so that you have a natural looking result after the surgery. Once your surgeon is satisfied, they will close the incisions and apply a compression garment.

After the procedure you will be able to see your results immediately. You will have to rest for a few days after surgery, and your doctor will let you know when you can return to low-intensity physical activity. This is quite a major procedure, and so it can take a few months to completely heal.

Who is a Good Candidate for Butt Augmentation?

Patients should be at least eighteen years old, but it is better that the patient is older to be sure that they are fully aware of the implications of having the surgery. Moreover, regardless of age, the patient should be in good mental and general physical health. Beyond this, potential patients should know that the purpose of cosmetic surgery is not perfection, but rather physical improvement. If you are striving for perfection, you will only be disappointed with the results. As such, potential patients should have realistic expectations for the procedure.

At your initial consultation, make sure that you are completely open about what your aesthetic goals are, and address any queries or concerns that you may have about the procedure. Using this information, you and your surgeon will be able to assess if the procedure is right for you or not, and how best to go forward. An open relationship with your doctor will ensure the best results.
