Buttocks augmentation with silicone implants
It permanently increases the volume of the buttocks. It is the only feasible procedure when there is not enough fat in other areas of the body to transfer to the buttocks. It enhances the buttocks’ profile, especially when this procedure is combined with liposuction of nearby areas such as thighs and waist. It evens out the bodies of people who work out to develop and build their muscles, but who cannot develop the muscles of their buttocks as much as other parts of their bodies.
Buttocks augmentation surgery with lipotranfer
It permanently increases the volume of the buttocks. Fat injections are more worthwhile when applied in the buttocks than in other areas, since the buttocks have the particularity of being an area in which adipose tissue tends to accumulate. However, it must be taken into account that the volume achieved may sometimes be reduced in part or completely if the fat is reabsorbed by the body. The buttocks are enhanced not only because of the increase in volume, but also because of the contrast they get with nearby areas from which the fat is recollected and which volume is inevitably reduced.
According to the characteristics of your case and to what you and your surgeon decide, anesthesia may be local, epidural or general. The surgery lasts about 2 to 3 hours, both for buttocks augmentation with lipotranfer and with implants. Your hospital stay will be of 1 day. a) With silicone implants The surgeon makes an incision between the buttocks, right in the midline. He makes a pocket inside each buttock and places the cohesive silicone gel implants inside of them, sliding them through the incision, which is about 5 cm. It is very important to keep the area clean, but do not worry about it, it will be concealed between the buttocks. b) Lipotranfer The surgeon collects the fat from other areas of the body with a cannula; this procedure is very similar to liposuction. The most frequent areas from which fat is collected are the lower back, abdomen, waist and hips. Then he purifies the fat collected and injects it on the buttocks, drop by drop.
To heal properly, after any of these procedures, you will have to wear a special bandage on the treated area for about two or three weeks. It is a bit uncomfortable but, unfortunately, it is necessary. The pain level will be medium. We remove the stitches in both cases, between 7 and 15 days after the surgery. During the first three or four weeks the swelling may diminish unevenly, causing asymmetries. You may rest only on your belly until the stitches are removed. From the seventh day onwards, you may try to sit again and to go back to work, but only if you will not have to sit for long periods and if you will not have to make intense physical efforts. According to your evolution, you will have to wait for about 30 days before doing any hard work and exercise. In general, buttocks augmentation surgery has lasting and very satisfactory results. Your new curves will make your body look more female. No matter the kind or location of the implants, one may heal faster than the other and you may notice a temporary asymmetry. The inflammation is at its worst during the first three days, then it lessens progressively during the next three or four weeks. It tends to be greater and to last longer when the implants are placed behind the muscle.
