Buttocks Enlargement (Buttock Fat Injection, Buttock Implants)


Buttocks Enhancement aims to beautify the body as seen from behind.

Buttocks Augmentation can reshape, increase the volume, and lift the gluteus. The results are that of a more harmonious buttocks, with the desired shape and volume, and a better and perkier appearance.

The buttocks are the centre of the posterior body and play a very important role on its contour. The buttocks on the back play the same role of the breast on the chest. The main features of both are the projection and the round shape, something strictly confined to women.

Many patients feel uncomfortable with their posterior contour and are troubled by situations like swimming, beach, or sports. Also, changing dressing fashion, codification of aesthetic norms of the buttock, as well as procedural improvements have increased interest in buttocks augmentation surgery.

Buttocks enlargement, reshaping, lift, and augmentation procedures alter and improve the appearance of the male and female buttocks. This is a relatively new field in aesthetic surgery, but in later years this type of operation has become popular especially in big cities like Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles.

Planning Your Buttock Enhancement Treatment

Your Buttocks Enhancement Surgery Consultation

An area of the body that is not easily enlarged or shaped by weight training or diet is the buttocks region.

Individuals that wish to enlarge, lift, and reshape the buttock mounds have two options:

  1. Enlargement with fat transfer using your own fat,
  2. or using a variety of different size and shape butt implants from which to choose.

The decision is made depending on each person’s individual desires and on their general body build. Generally, anyone in average physical condition or good health can be a candidate for buttocks augmentation surgery.

Your Buttocks Enhancement Surgery Surgery

Fat Transfer: a minimally invasive procedure that involves fat suctioning from other parts of your body, purifying it, and transplanting it into the buttock area to look as natural as possible for the optimal cosmetic effect. It is usually done under general anaesthetic as a day case. You will go home the same day with a quick recovery time. Fat transfer is less painful than buttock implants.

Buttock Implants: a bigger operation but gives you permanent results. It involves a 5-7cm single incision placed over the tailbone in the midline. Through this incision the buttock muscle (gluteus maximus) is identified and dissected to create a just large enough pocket for the implant. The implant will be inserted and positioned to look natural.

The patient will require a stay in hospital overnight. Pain medications are typically prescribed to help with discomfort. Some patients will require drains overnights.

There is usually minor swelling and bruising after buttock augmentation and the results will be noticeable immediately after surgery. The procedure is done under General Anaesthesia or/and epidural anaesthetics.

After Your Buttocks Enhancement Surgery Surgery

Fat Transfer: quick recovery time, and pain is usually tolerable with simple analgesia.

Buttock Implants: The patient may be very uncomfortable for the first few days. It is difficult to turn in any position to get comfortable. It is advisable that someone is with the person for the next several days just to help get out of bed, prepare meals, etc. It will take a few days before the patient finds it more comfortable to walk about and get back to daily activities.

The dressing should remain dry and intact for a few days. The patient will be reviewed at the clinic seven days after surgery for wound and implant check.

Getting Back to Daily Activities after Buttocks Enhancement Surgery Surgery

Fat Transfer: back to work in two days time, and daily activities in 7-10 days.

Buttock Implants: full activities including gym, work, bicycling, and running can usually be resumed about four weeks following surgery. It may take up to six or eight months until the results feel as if they’re part of the body and the patient forgets about them even being there.
