The fullness and projection of the buttocks can be augmented with either natural fat injection / grafting or with Buttock Implants.
Buttock Augmentation with an implant can give a very satisfactory result. Butt implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes and they can even be custom made. Gluteal implant sare made of solid silicone, which has the same consistency, and feel as that of a buttock. Unlike silicone breast implants,
Buttock implants don’t leak, because they are solid. These implants are permanent and do not need not be replaced over time.
Although buttock or Gluteal implants can provide significant fullness to the buttocks they general have a much higher rate of complications compared to fat grafting/ injection which is also marketed as the “Brazilian Butt Lift”. Therefore, like many other plastic surgeons that perform buttock augmentation, I favor using fat injection/ grafting with a combination of liposculpture and body contouring, instead of implants in majority of cases.
Buttock augmentation with fat grafting or injection, involves harvesting your own body fat from other areas of excess and injecting it into the buttock tissue. For example excess fat in the flanks, lower back, thighs, or abdomen is liposuctioned, processed and then injected into the muscle and soft tissue of your buttocks. During this fat grafting process the buttocks can be contoured to the desired profile. Unlike buttock implants, there is some loss of volume after fat grafting due to resorption of the injected fat. Therefore, the injection might need to be repeated.
Buttock augmentation with Gluteal implants is performed under general anesthesia, on an outpatient basis.
With this technique a 4 inch incision is placed in the middle of the buttock crease between the buttock cheeks to insert the implant. The buttock muscles are exposed and the implants are usually place between the two layers of the buttock muscles. This keeps the implant from sagging, gives it a more natural shape, and reduces the chance of having complications.
It is also possible to place the implants through the fold under the buttocks. This scar tends to be more noticeable and the implants often end up being placed too low. After placement of the implants the wounds are closed. Some plastic surgeons use temporary drains to remove excess fluid buildup.
