Buttock augmentation is a procedure designed to enhance the buttocks. Through the use of implants or fat transfer, buttock augmentation can create a rounder, fuller and more shapely backside. Good candidates for buttock augmentation include healthy patients who have realistic expectations for improvement.
Buttock augmentation takes about one and a half to two hours to complete and may be performed with general anesthesia or light sleep sedation. For buttock augmentation with implants, a two- to three-inch incision may be made where the buttock and thigh meet or within the crease between the buttocks. The implants are then inserted and the incisions are closed. Fat injections involve smaller incisions. Fat is first removed with liposuction from a donor area such as the hips, thighs or abdomen, and then purified and reinjected into the buttock area.
Recovery after buttock augmentation with implants takes about four weeks and can involve swelling and bruising. Patients will need to wear a compression garment for about six to twelve weeks and may need to sleep on the stomach for two or more weeks. Recovery after fat injection procedures tend to be shorter and milder. Patients may be able to return to work in about five to seven days after fat transfer and in about ten days after implant surgery. More strenuous activities will need to be postponed for a period of time.
