Many individuals are unhappy that no amount of diet and exercise with improve their buttock shape. As we age the skin loses elasticity, muscles and fat begin to shift and everything starts to sag. Significant weight loss is also a common concern.
Buttock enlargement or buttock augmentation (also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift) allows men and women with flat or poorly developed buttocks to enhance and shape the area to their liking. While many women increase the size of their breast, some find an imbalance between the front and rear and wish to augment their buttocks to complete their desired shape.
Fat grafting uses donor sites from other areas of the body that may have excess fat. Donor areas usually include the abdomen, hips, back or thighs. A gentler liposuction technique is used to remove fat cells which in turn are inserted through small incisions into different layers of the buttocks. Patients prefer the idea of using fat transplantation to contour their buttocks as there no chance of the body rejecting the fat cells. This method is more natural than the alternative – buttock implants.
Butt Lift Surgery (Gluteoplasty)
Butt lift surgery also called gluteoplasty is a cosmetic surgery to tighten the sagging skin of the buttocks and upper thigh portion. Sagging skin is a problem faced by people and the reasons may be aging, considerable weight loss or other hereditary factors. Butt lift provides a more youthful contouring of the buttocks and a much sleeker thigh.
- Corrective butt lift
- Aesthetic butt enhancement
Corrective butt lift – The surgical procedure resolves the damage to the buttocks muscles due to some traumatic injury or as a result of congenital deformities. Inorder to resurrect and uplift the buttocks after a serious injury, gluteal implants are used.
Aesthetic butt enhancement – Butt lift for aesthetic purpose takes care of the sagging skin of the buttocks area. Here the skin of the buttocks and the thigh area is tightened and sutured to give a better tone to the muscles.
Alongwith butt lift surgery, as the situation demands, liposuction is also done to remove the excess fat deposit of the area and when an augmentation is to be done, fat transfer from other body areas of the patient to the buttocks is also done.
As in any other surgery, the condition of the patient prior to the surgery is assessed through clinical examination. The butt lift surgery takes about 2 hours time for the entire procedure. Patients are advised rest for about two weeks and they are advised to abstain from long hours of sitting or doing some strenuous activities.
But for the permanent scar left after the surgery butt lift surgery generally do not end up in further risks. If bruises or swelling prolong after a few days report to your surgeon for immediate care.
