What is Buttock Augmentation?

The buttocks, much like the breasts, are an area of arousal. Buttock augmentation provide patients the opportunity to gain a more pleasing appearance. This involves the surgical insertion of artificial implants into the buttocks in order to enhance its size and shape. Buttock implants can help patients gain a more sensuous backside. This cosmetic procedure can also help those that lack definition in their buttock region to improve upon their appearance. The implants are comprised of a silicone shell and filled with a firm, flexible material, like silicone. Patients that undergo this procedure not only enhance their appearance, but many also experience a boost in their self-esteem and self-confidence. Buttock implants have become quite a popular procedure. Many women, and even some men, are looking to add more to their backside. Buttock implants are solid, soft silicone so there is no risk of implant rupture or a silicone leak. Buttock implants are available in different sizes and shapes to optimize how much and what part of the buttock is lifted and made larger. The volume obtained from buttock implants is stable lifelong as the implants will never degrade or rupture.

Buttock Augmentation

Intergluteal Crease Incision

They are placed through a small intergluteal crease incision. Buttock implants are placed into the muscle (intramuscular) The intramuscular location is better long-term and has less risk of implant-related complications but the recovery is significant and the size of implant that can be placed is more limited (450cc or less).

Buttocks can also be augmented through fat grafting. This involves removal of fat from other areas of the body and transferred into the buttock region. Liposuction is usually performed to remove fat from the other areas. Liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with buttock augmentation, in order to further enhance the buttocks new contour.
