Buttock Augmentation

The appearance of the buttocks has always been important for both men and women. In recent years, buttock augmentation has experienced an explosive increase in demand, as the “Brazilian” buttocks is now in demand.

What is a buttock augmentation?

It is the surgery that aims to increase the volume of the buttocks and improve its shape.

What are the ways to increase the size of the buttocks?

– by silicone implants

– by transferring fat from another area of the body

– by injecting hyaluronic acid into the area

Which method is better?

Each technique has advantages and disadvantages, which should be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure lasts 2 to 3.5 hours.

What anesthesia is needed?

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.

How long does recovery take?

After the surgery, the patient is discharged the same day (fat transfer, augmentation with hyaluronic acid) or stays in the hospital for 24 hours (augmentation with implants). While there is some pain, it is likened to a sense of discomfort.

The patient must wear a compression garment for 4 weeks and return to work in 5-10 days, depending on the range of surgery. Exercise may resume after 6 weeks.

Are there incisions?

In liposuction and augmentation with hyaluronic acid, the incisions are virtually invisible.

In augmentation with silicone implants, there is a 5 cm incision in the mesogluteal fold.
