Understanding the buttocks augmentation procedure
Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their buttocks, either due to sagging, excess skin, or poor volume may want to work with a plastic surgeon to learn about the options available to them. Buttocks augmentation is performed routinely with Dr. Sanjay Lalla, who offers buttocks augmentation using the buttocks implant. Just like a breast implant, the buttocks implant is placed into the area to add volume and shape. It improves the contours of one’s body and provides a more voluminous look to the behind. In doing so, it can improve a patient’s self-confidence and self-esteem.
What happens during buttocks augmentation with implant placement?
During the procedure, the buttocks implant will be placed underneath the muscles of the buttocks to enhance the shape and achieve a natural appearance. Incisions are often made in inconspicuous places, including the creases underneath the buttocks to ensure a natural finished result. The procedure does require patients to schedule some downtime as they heal, especially when it comes to sitting down and performing more strenuous activities.
What alternatives are available?
Another option for patients to consider is buttocks augmentation achieved with fat transfer. Fat transfer, or fat grafting, requires the doctor to harvest fat cells from elsewhere on the body, and then use them in the buttocks to create a natural curve without the placement of an implant. This is a much less invasive way of achieving results for patients who are interested in non-surgical options. The fat cells grafted to the area will stay permanently. When injected by a professional, they will maintain the proper shape and volume over many years. Patients often consider injectable alternatives if they have fat cells elsewhere in the body that they’d like to reduce.
