What are buttock enhancement surgeries?
Buttock 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.
A buttock 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 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 are butt implants?
Butt implants are artificial devices surgically placed in the buttocks to create volume in the area.
Also called buttock augmentation, this procedure has grown increasingly popular in recent years. One estimate reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons notes that buttock augmentation surgery has increased by 252 percent between the years 2000 and 2015.
The most popular types of buttock-related surgeries include butt lifts, implants, and augmentation with fat grafting.
Despite their popularity, butt implant surgeries aren’t without risk. Discuss the possible benefits and side effects, as well as any expected costs and recovery time, with a board-certified surgeon.
Butt implants have one primary goal: to enhance the shape of the buttocks. Still, there are a few different approaches to achieve this goal. The two main types of procedures are fat grafting and buttock implants.
