The buttocks are augmented and lifted with the use of silicone buttock implants (round or oval shape specifically designed for Buttock Augmentation) or with your own fat, also called Brazilian buttock lift, fat grafting, fat injections, fat transfer, or Lipo- gluteoplasty.
Buttock augmentation by fat grafting:
The fat grafting consists in 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 on the buttocks by cannulas through a few minimal incisions.
Buttock augmentation 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 proper covering the implants, to make them non visible or touchable, and obtaining natural results. The bigger the implants are, and less patient’s tissue covering the buttock implants, the results will be more obvious.
When a buttock augmentation through fat grafting is indicated?
A buttock augmentation with fat grafting is indicated in men or women who desire to improve their body contour in addition to buttock augmentation.
When are buttock implants indicated?
Buttock augmentation with implants is indicated for patients who do not have sufficient fat in other areas for lipotransference, and are looking for permanent results.
What type of buttock implants are indicated for me?
Dr Bukret criteria are to analyze the requirement and expectations for each patient, and other medical issues like anatomy and recovery time. We use round or oval shape buttock implants according to the case. Learn more at about buttock implants at www.eurosilicone.com
How long is the recovery time after buttock augmentation with implants or fat transfer?
Fat grafting has a short recovery period without limitations in regards to 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 implants surgery you should normally take two weeks to progressively return to normal activities.
Can I have sit on my butts after surgery?
Yes, you can. The secret is to sit on your thighs, in straight position, in a firm chair, avoiding to sit over the implants that are in a higher position. In this way you can progressively start from few minutes, three days after surgery.
How long does buttock augmentation surgery take?
It takes 1 to 3 hours.
What kind of anesthesia is used for gluteal augmentation?
Dr. Bukret generally uses deep sedation, technically known as neuroleptoanesthesia; this is always used in conjunction with local anesthesia for a comfortable recovery without pain.
How long should I wear the garment after gluteal augmentation?
You should wear it from 4 to 6 weeks for most of the gluteoplasties.
Which are the post-operative care measures and treatment?
- Bed resting is required only the day of buttock surgery; early physical activity helps to subsiding the swelling and to prevent deep vein thrombosis
- No sunbathing for 3 to 4 weeks post-op
- An elastic garment is worn for 6 to 8 weeks following buttock implant and/or fat grafting
- Sutures are removed 5 to12 days after surgery
See these considerations about pre and post op care which also applies for buttock augmentation.
How much does a buttock augmentation cost?
Costs for gluteal augmentation and buttock lift will vary according to the complexity of the case, the type of buttock implants, and will also depend on the facilities where the procedure will be performed. Generally you should expect to pay in Argentina two or three time less than in US or Europe for our high standard quality medical service.
