Why do Buttock augmentation and lift with buttock implants and fat by 3D Laser Lipo give the best results?

The buttocks are augmented and lifted with the use of silicone buttock implants (round or oval shape specifically designed for Buttock Augmentation) and with your own fat, also called Brazilian buttock lift, fat grafting, fat injections, fat transfer, or Lipo-gluteoplasty.

Buttock implants provide predictable results and a nice projection, while lipotransference helps round the buttocks laterally.

How much does a buttock augmentation cost in Argentina?

In general, you should expect to pay two or three times less than in the United States or Europe for buttock augmentation that meets the same high standards of safety and efficacy.

Costs for gluteal augmentation and buttock lift will vary according to the complexity of the case, and the type of buttock implants, and will also depend on the facilities where the procedure will be performed.

Buttock lift by fat grafting

Fat grafting consists of removing fat from certain areas of the body, such as the lower back, abdomen, waist, and hips; which adds the benefit of a liposculpture in those areas. After this, the fat is purified and injected into the buttocks by cannulas through a few minimal incisions.

Buttock lift with buttock implants

Dr. Bukret makes a small incision of 2 inches (5 cm) between the buttocks, inside the midline or intergluteal fold, which can be very easily concealed.

Through this incision, the buttock implants are then positioned in a submuscular or intramuscular plane depending on the quantity and quality of tissues to properly cover the implants, to make them non-visible or touchable, and to obtain natural results.

The bigger the implants are, and the less the patient’s tissue covering the buttock implants, the more obvious the results will be.

How long is the recovery time after a buttock lift with implants or fat transfer?

Fat grafting has a short recovery period without limitations regarding mobilization, and it has less discomfort compared to buttock augmentation with implants. After having fat grafting surgery, you should expect to be doing normal activities after 3 to 5 days. After having buttock implant surgery, you should normally take two weeks to progressively return to normal activities.

Can I sit on my buttocks after surgery?

Yes, you can. The secret is to sit on your thighs, in a straight position, in a firm chair, avoiding sitting over the implants that are in a higher position. In this way, you can progressively start from a few minutes, three days after surgery.

How long should I wear the garment after gluteal augmentation?

You should wear them for 4 to 6 weeks for most of the gluteoplasties.

What are the post-operative care measures and treatment?

  • Antibiotics
  • Bed resting is required only on the day of buttock surgery; early physical activity helps to subside the swelling and to prevent deep vein thrombosis
  • No sunbathing for 3 to 4 weeks post-op
