Buttock augmentation, is used to improve the contour, size and/or shape of the buttocks. This is done through the use of buttock implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of the two.
Buttock augmentation through the use of fat grafting involves the transfer of your own fat from one area of the body into the tissues of the buttocks. This technique is also referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Buttock implants are uncommonly used in Europe due to high complication rates.
What buttock augmentation surgery can do
- Increase fullness, roundness and projection of your buttock
- Improve the balance of your body
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
In addition to buttock augmentation procedures, a buttock lift can be accomplished by the surgical removal of soft tissue.
A buttock lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue of the butt.
Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the buttocks.
In order to achieve a smoother and more pleasing contour, excess sagging skin and fat are removed. A traditional gluteal lift will not make a butt larger, but may improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface. This procedure may be included in a body lift or may be performed separately.
