Many people, male and female, are not satisfied with the shape of their buttocks. Buttock augmentation can help change the shape of the buttocks to a more desirable round and fuller shape. This can help give a more aesthetically pleasing body outline.
Buttock Augmentation Details
The simplest procedure is an injection of hyaluronic acid to the buttocks, up to 100ml of hyaluronic acid can be injected into each buttock. Alternatively, a patient's own fat can be aspirated through liposuction and injected into the buttocks. Through this method, up to 500ml of fat tissue can be injected into each buttock. Another approach to this procedure is to use silicone implants and insert them into the buttocks. Such implants can be inserted either underneath or on top of the muscles in that region; this depends on each individual case. If the implants are chosen to be placed underneath the muscles, it will be placed underneath the gluteus maximus muscle.
Buttock Augmentation Results
If the patient chooses the hyaluronic injections then there is no downtime, however, massages to the gluteal region should be avoided until 4 weeks after the injections. In the cases of fat injection and implantations, swelling and bruising will be caused and these should subside within 2-4 weeks. The new shape will improve over 6 months. Scarring should be minimal but it depends on each individual patient. Pressure garments will be required to be worn for at least a month after the operation.
