It is very difficult and at times impossible to reshape the buttocks with diet and exercise. A shapely round buttocks can make the waist and thighs appear smaller, bringing the body into a more pleasing proportion. Properly proportioned buttocks can also help convey a more youthful, healthy appearance. Although for many years cultural standards of beauty were dominated by thin, linear figures, the balance has slowly been swinging in favor of more curvaceous body shapes, including an appreciation for properly proportioned buttocks, the type of buttocks many women are unable to achieve on their own. As a result, buttock augmentation has grown in popularity in recent years.
In buttock augmentation with implants, solid silicone implants are usually inserted within the buttocks, just over the muscle. Patients must avoid sitting or lying on the implants for 2 weeks after the procedure to prevent movement of the implants. Most patients return to normal activities in one to two weeks. There is typically minimal discomfort after surgery. The implants afford an immediate and permanent augmentation to the buttock. This procedure is the only alternative for women who have little or no fat to be used for augmentation.
Buttock augmentation with fat injection is also a popular method of buttock enhancement. The technique has evolved in the past few years allowing for improved and better results. First, liposuction is used to remove fat from donor sites, which leads to additional body contouring. The fat is then processed and injected into the buttocks in very small injections uniformly through the area to be augmented.
