Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation, is used to improve the contour, size and/or shape of the buttocks. This is done through the use of buttock implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of the two.
Buttock implants are silicone-filled devices that are surgically placed deep within the tissues of the buttock. Buttock augmentation through the use of fat grafting involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body into the tissues of the buttocks. This technique is sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Buttock augmentation surgery can:
Increase fullness, roundness and projection of your butt or buttocks
Improve the balance of your figure
Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
In addition to buttock augmentation procedures, a buttock lift can be accomplished by the surgical removal of soft tissue.
To improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat in the buttock area, a buttock lift, or gluteal lift can be performed.
In order to achieve a smoother and more pleasing contour, excess sagging skin and fat are removed. A traditional gluteal lift will not make a butt larger, but may improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface.
