Before undergoing any procedure, it is wise to learn about the potential for risk and side effects. All procedures come with the possibility of complications. Some of the difficulties associated specifically with butt augmentation include:
  • Negative reaction to anesthesia
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Butt implant shifting or rupture
  • Nerve damage
  • Asymmetry

There is also a chance that a second or third procedure will be needed if you are unsatisfied with your results. Follow up procedures are more likely to be performed when fat grafting is utilized because the results aren't as permanent as those provided by butt implants.

Complications can be reduced by following your doctor's instructions carefully. By adhering to your plastic surgeon's directions, you will minimize the chance of difficulties arising.

Equally important is your choice of butt augmentation physician. The more experience and skill that a plastic surgeon has, the less likely errors will occur. If you are unsure of your doctor's abilities, find a physician who you feel completely confident with.

Buttock Augmentation Procedure

This surgical procedure also called gluteoplasty or buttock augmentation. It is design to reshape the size of your buttocks and create more firm and aesthetic appearance. The buttock area is not easily changed by weight reduction or exercise, therefore you may consider this operation to improve the look of your buttock. In general every person who wishes to undergo the operation and is in a good physical condition can do so.

Buttock augmentation is achieved using fat. The idea is to remove fat from your one body part and inject in into your buttocks. The big advantage of this technique is the fact that there is no rejection since the tissue used is taken from your one body. In addition this method can make your buttock look very natural. The fat is usually taken from areas of the body, which have extra fat, like the flank area, the thigh and the upper and lower buttock.

The extra fat, which is removed from the above areas, can further reshape the buttock making it look like you`ve been through a butt lift. After the fat is removed is undergoes some special processing and then injected to your buttocks using a special cannula, which has a very small diameter therefore leaves minimal scars. The big challenge of the fat grafting is to cause the graft to survive in the new place, this can be achieved by injecting small amount of fat each time into different layers, above and below the butt muscles.

How Is Butt Augmentation Performed?

Surgeons start by taking fat from the body via liposuction. But before they use an extraction wand (the cannula,) they inject large amounts of anesthetic agents and intravenous fluids into the fatty area. That makes collection easier and prevents some swelling.

Often, while the patient is on the table, the surgeon will also perform liposuction on the upper and outer sides of the buttocks, the love handles and the outer thighs. Reducing those areas also help add to the appearance of a younger, curvy and more highly lifted derriere.

Where the procedure is performed depends on the patient’s overall health and weight. The operation can be performed on an outpatient basis in a surgeon’s surgical suite, in an ambulatory surgical center or in a hospital. Generally, heavy patients with a Body Mass Index over 31 have the procedure done in a hospital. Both excess weight and smoking cause problems for patients undergoing general anesthesia. Smokers are asked to stop four weeks before the operation.

When the fat cells have been separated from blood and other fluids, the surgeon, using a large syringe, injects the prepared fat cells into the peak of the buttocks by laying down “pearls” or strings of fat between layers of muscle. Some surgeons say fat grafting gives them more flexibility in the size and placement and that the patient suffers less pain, recovers faster and risks fewer complications.

What Are The Benefits To This Procedure?

Benefits include a trimmer, often athletic-looking rear end which enhances the most current fashions in slacks, dresses, workout garb, bathing suits (including thongs!) and other revealing garments. As with other surgical rejuvenations, you will most likely enjoy an increase in self-esteem and confidence after everything heals.
