Understanding Types Of Buttock Augmentation Surgery

If you want a rounder and more shapely behind but you have had problems increasing buttock size through exercise, then you can opt for a surgical procedure instead. There are a few types of cosmetic surgery that can enhance the appearance of your butt. These include butt implantation and butt lifting. Keep reading to learn about each of the procedures so you can understand which might be best for you.

What Is A Butt Lift?

A butt lift is sometimes called a Brazilian butt lift and helps to contour the buttock region. An incision is made along the low back and the skin is lifted up and cut away. This removes the excess skin contributing to sagging buttocks. As the skin is pulled upward, the fat that creates the round shape of the buttocks is also shifted upward.

Sometimes skin removal and lifting is enough to create a more rounded shape. However, if there are few fat deposits in the region, then liposuction may be performed to move fat from one area to the next. The movement of fat from the midsection is common. 

In some cases, the gluteus muscles will be tightened as well with sutures. This is similar to the way the facial muscles are adjusted during a facelift. 

Keep in mind that while fat can be deposited in the buttocks, the addition of liposuction will add some costs to the procedure. Additionally, depending on the areas of liposuction and the extent of fat removal, recovery may take much longer. Inflammation and pain will be likely around each surgical area.

What Is a Butt Implant?

A butt implantation is when silicone implants are added to the buttocks. This is similar to a breast augmentation procedure. The surgery involves the placement of an incision on each buttock directly in the middle of each buttock, just above the sitting area. The implant is then inserted through the incision so it sits below the layer of fat but above the muscle. 

Sometimes surgeons will place implants within the muscle itself to keep the implant from migrating. 

Butt implants come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. You will work with your plastic surgeon to find the right shape and size that matches your body shape. 

Keep in mind that silicone implants can leak over time. You will need to make sure that your physician or plastic surgeon inspects the implants on a yearly basis to make sure that leaks are not present.
