Many people wonder about what the plastic cosmetic surgery of buttock augmentation is really.
Is it painful? What is the procedure? What is the recovery time after such a surgery?
The plastic cosmetic surgery of buttock augmentation has the scientific name of gluteoplasty and the popular name of butt implants.
Gluteoplasty is used to increase the volume of flat buttocks, as well as to refine their attractive shape.
The buttock augmentation can be done by fat injection (our approach) or by using silicone implants.
This technique is used in our surgical center. Liposuction is done to remove fat cells from the hips, thighs, back, etc.
Then, the suctioned fat is injected into the buttocks.
Buttocks augmentation using implants
They are made of silicone cohesive gel. Each implant is inserted under the muscles of the buttocks using a scar hidden in the crease between the buttocks.
We do not practice this implant technique.
The fat injection?
Buttock augmentation by fat injection “lipo-injection” is the technique performed in our Montreal clinic.
Fat injection or lipo-injection is used to increase the volume of the buttocks and to better sculpt their contour.
To obtain the necessary fat, liposuction on the rest of the body is performed.
Generally, the take of the injected fat is satisfactory.
It is not possible to ensure that the volume of injected fat will be taken entirely by the body. So, it is possible that the procedure may be repeated a second time a year later.
The results are considered sustainable after a period of 3 to 6 months.
For our surgeon Dr. Nabil Fanous, the natural appearance of buttock fat injection, once completed, is one of the most important objectives of a buttock augmentation.
Operated buttocks must be more voluminous, but not too big. They should not attract too much attention.
Beautiful buttocks must also bring softness to the body’s silhouette.
This is where a buttock augmentation with fat injection comes into play:
It is used to change flat buttocks in a non-exaggerated way.
Any changes or corrections must remain discreet.
Considering the importance of the buttocks because of their position, the success of such an operation is crucial.
It is essential that the buttock augmentation surgery with fat injection is done with, in mind, the overall harmony of the body.
It is important that the buttocks do not seem exaggerated after surgery.
Many of the patients who consult us for buttock augmentation by fat injection are encouraged by friends who were satisfied with a similar esthetic surgery performed by Dr. Fanous.
Seeing the result on a person we know is one of the ways to assess the skills of a surgeon.
