Buttock Augmentation

Buttock augmentation, also known as Gluteoplasty, is a procedure used to augment buttocks that are saggy or have less volume. Buttock augmentation is performed to make them youthful, prominent, and perky by using implants or fat transfer or a combination of both techniques. Buttock augmentation changes the body profile of women to give them a more sensual body profile. With the help of experienced hands, buttock augmentation gives highly rewarding aesthetic results.

Who all can opt for the Buttock augmentation procedure?

  • Young women with inherently small volume buttocks.
  • Young women with sagginess of the buttocks.
  • Age-related changes leading to loss of overall volume of the buttocks, loss of skin elasticity, loss of projection.
  • Uneven fat deposition around the buttocks leading to the uneven shape of the buttocks.

What types of procedures are done in buttock augmentation?

  • Implant augmentation.
  • Fat transfer/ Brazilian Butt Lift surgery (BBL).
  • Combination of implant and fat transfer.

How is the procedure performed?

The fat is harvested from the abdomen, love handles, thigh, and back. The other nearby areas are also sculpted in addition to giving definition to the waist, thigh, and abdomen. A gluteal implant or a combination of fat and gluteal implant procedure is performed in patients with not enough fat available. The implants are placed inside the gluteal muscles.

Which type of procedure is to be considered in which patient?

Patients with an overall thin body with insufficient body fat are good candidates for buttock implant surgery. While in most other cases, there is sufficient fat around the abdomen or thigh. If more of reshaping is required, then fat grafting is preferably performed either alone or in combination with implants.

Fat transfers

The major risk with fat transfer is a fat embolism. It can lead to cardiopulmonary complications. It is important to follow the recommended safety guidelines in buttock fat augmentation to prevent any untoward complications.

Overall, buttock augmentation procedures are gaining popularity worldwide due to growing experience and increasing safety.

What is a Brazilian butt lift (BBL)?

Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgery used to augment buttocks by using autologous fat transfer. Autologous fat transfer is a technique used to harvest their own body fat, and the fat is transferred to preferential areas of buttocks to augment them. In BBL, the body areas like waist, abdomen, and thigh are sculpted in a particular way, and fat is used to enhance the buttocks to give it a youthful, voluminous, and perky shape.

What are the risks involved?

  • Hematoma
  • Infection
  • Seroma
  • Implant capsule formation
  • Delayed wound healing

Will there be scars in gluteal augmentation?

There will be a small stab incision in fat transfer procedures from which the fat harvesting and transfer is performed. Incisions are just 2 to 4mm, and that too hidden inside the skin folds. In the case of implant insertion, 4 cm incision is placed in the intergluteal crease between the buttocks in the sacral region. With time the scar fades out and is barely visible.

Buttock augmentation post-surgical aftercare?

Patients are asked to wear a special compression garment for 4 to 6 weeks for lymphatic drainage. Avoid lifting heavy weights for 4 to 6 weeks. And you should not sit directly on your buttocks for at least 3 to 6 weeks, preferably to avoid fat absorption.
