Buttock augmentation is a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon to enhance the size and shape of the buttock area and give it a more accentuated look.
Butt augmentation involves the surgical insertion of implants into the buttocks to create a larger, shapelier, and more sensuous rear end. In a few cases, fat transfer butt augmentation may be performed where the patient needs limited buttock enhancement.
During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about all aspects related to buttock augmentation and help them make an informed choice. Dedicated plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides buttock augmentation surgery to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Georgia, and surrounding communities in The Peach State.
People who have underdeveloped buttocks can achieve a more proportionate figure with butt implant surgery. Women who are unhappy with the size of their buttocks or want to attain an ‘hour glass’ look can benefit from female butt implants.
Men with flat or less developed buttocks can enhance the shape of the area to their liking with male butt implants. The cosmetic surgeon will carefully determine the patient’s candidacy for buttock augmentation if it can meet their aesthetic goals.
Buttock augmentation surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, which may be completed in about two hours. Following anesthesia, the surgeon will create an incision in the buttock crease where scarring can be discreet or in the area where the butt cheek meets the back of the thigh. Through the incision, they will create a pocket large enough to accommodate the butt implants.
The buttock implants can be placed below or above the muscle in case of both men and women. This will be determined during the pre-op surgical planning. Once the implants are placed into position, the surgeon will confirm that each cheek is symmetrical and looks natural. They will carefully close the incisions and apply a compression garment.
In a situation where the patient requires only limited buttock re-contouring, the surgeon may recommend fat transfer surgery instead of implants. In this case, surplus fat tissue will be removed through liposuction from donor areas such as the abdomen or breasts. This fat will be then injected into the targeted areas of the buttocks to give subtle improvement to their shape and size.
Fat transfer buttock augmentation is a slightly less invasive procedure compared to implants. However, it may not provide very significant enhancement. The surgeon will make the appropriate recommendation based on the candidate’s excess fat availability and cosmetic needs for butt surgery.
Buttock enhancement using butt implants can successfully improve the size and shape of patients’ rear ends. Men and women who are unhappy with the size of their buttocks benefit from increased volume. Patients who feel their buttocks lack shape can achieve a more prominent, sensuous backside.
Following butt augmentation, the patient will need some time for recovery so that the skin and tissue can heal well to provide sustainable and attractive results.
