Butt Augmentation

Buttock Augmentation

Men and women who are unhappy with the appearance of their buttocks may benefit from cosmetic surgery including augmention of the buttocks. There are two methods to achieve a fuller buttock contour – implants, fat injections or a combination of the two.

If implants are used for augmentation, they may be placed underneath the gluteal muscles through a small incision in the crease in the buttocks. Buttock implants are not at all like the implants used for breasts. Instead of a silicone shell filled with sterile saline or gel, buttock implants are made of soft but solid silicone molded into appropriate shapes and available in a number of sizes and shapes.

If fat injections are selected for a buttock augmentation, your procedure will begin with removal of your own fat, using a suction device or syringe, from a selected donor site. Usually, a combination of several donor sites is needed to provide sufficient fat. Common sites include the abdomen, waist, hips, flanks, and thighs. After being processed, the fat is injected into the buttocks. Because a certain amount of the injected fat will be resorbed, an overcorrection may be necessary in the fat injection areas. This means that your initial results may likely appear greater than you desire, but with the aim of achieving a final result that meets your expectations.

Length of Surgery – Usually two to two and a half hours.

Anesthesia –  General anesthesia. On the cutting edge and preferred by Dr. Fodor is TIVA, which is a combination of the general and local anesthesia. It diminishes bleeding and post-operative nausea. Dr. Fodor has used this method for many years.

Recovery – Initial mild to moderate discomfort, can be controlled with pain medication; minimal activity for several days; swelling, bruising improve in three to 10 days; back to work time line depends on exact type of augmentation procedure; avoid strenuous exercise for about three to six weeks.

Scars -Visable under scrutiny but undetacable otherwise.
