Many patients are looking to increase the size or change the shape of the buttocks through cosmetic enhancements. A buttock augmentation can be achieved through implants, fat grafting, or a butt lift. These are the three main ways that cosmetic surgeons work to change the shape and size of the buttocks:
- Buttock implants, which can be used to enhance the size and shape of the upper and outer parts of the buttocks; giving a greater projection.
- Fat grafting can be used to augment the buttocks. Also known as a Brazilian butt lift, the procedure is performed by liposuctioning extra fat from the hips and waist and using that removed fat to enhance the buttocks. To do this, the liposuctioned fat is injected into the buttocks to help contour the shape of the buttocks.
- Skin removal through a traditional butt lift, similar to a tummy tuck, involves removing excess skin and fat to help enhance the appearance of the waist, hips, and back of the thighs.
Buttock augmentation may be the best option for patients who are in good health but want to get the extra help in changing the shape or size of their buttocks. For more information on buttock augmentation or to schedule an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (423) 926-2400.
