Despite excessive running and countless hours in the gym, the buttocks can be one area of the body that just refuses to take any sort of shape. No amount of squatting or lunging ever seems to provide the desired results. At our plastic surgery practice, Dr. Marcia V. Ormsby offers patients the opportunity to reshape or increase the size of the buttocks through an increasingly popular procedure known as buttock augmentation. Dr. Ormsby uses a number of state-of-the-art techniques, including fat transfer and buttock lifting, to give you a full, contoured and even look to the buttocks.
What is Buttock Augmentation?
Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to contour the buttocks for a firmer, more shapely backside. Whether patients desire to add volume, increase symmetry, or simply improve the shape of their buttocks, the procedure can enhance definition and improve overall body proportions. Dr. Ormsby works with each patient to determine specific goals in order to optimize natural-looking results.
Buttock Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Ormsby utilizes a fat-transferring method to augment and add shape to each buttock. Fat from other areas of the body is removed by liposuction and injected into the the buttocks to add volume and contour. If needed, excess skin from the buttocks is removed and the remainder is tightened for a taut, athletic look. Buttock augmentation is often performed as an outpatient procedure under anesthesia. Surgery times may vary depending on the extent of the procedure. Due to natural body processes, patients may need to receive multiple fat injections over a period of time to ensure longer-lasting results.
Recovery and Results
Generally, Dr. Ormsby recommends patients resume their normal daily routine a few days after surgery and refrain from physical activity for several weeks to avoid disrupting the healing process. Medication can be taken to alleviate any discomfort from temporary bruising and swelling. Initial results are noticeable but will often continue to improve over time as bruising and swelling decreases. A healthy diet and steady exercise routine can keep the results going for a long period of time. Recovery times and results may vary depending on each individual’s personal healing process.
