Buttocks Augmentation with Implants

Los Angeles Buttock AugmentationButtocks Augmentation can also be done with implants. This is a very delicate procedure requiring a special expertise by the surgeon to achieve a good result. There are certain fine touches needed in buttocks augmentation as in other cosmetic surgery, to have an excellent result. For example, the incision for buttocks augmentation has been placed on top with visible scars, at the bottom, again with visible scars, and in the buttocks fold.

The latter has been done through two incisions next to each other and finally through ONE incision which is what DR. Tavoussi does. This will give a small incision that well hidden in the intergluteal fold. The fold needs to be reconstructed at the end to hide the scar. There are varieties of buttocks implants and all of them are made with soft silicone of different sizes and shapes.

Dr. Tavoussi makes one small incision in the buttocks fold and through that a pocket is developed between the gluteal muscle, which is the thickest muscle of the body. This way, the implant is well protected on both side with muscle layer which give buttocks a more natural look without edges of implants showing or buttocks eventually becoming droopy as may happen when the implants are placed under the buttocks skin.

Another advantage of the intermuscular placement of the buttocks implants is protection of the siatic nerve that goes down under the gluteus maximus muscle. With  intermuscular placement, the siatic nerve is well protected.

Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer

This technique has a great amount of appeal – since doctor will be using your own body fat and transferring it back to your buttock area. The good news about fat is that the results can be extremely natural and it is your own body substance. There is no chance of rejection since there is no foreign material in your body. Many of surgeons like to work with fat because it has some very interesting properties. For example, wherever the fat is transferred to it takes on the same characteristics; if a doctors places it next to bone it

feels like bone.

The only not so good point with this technique is that fat is unpredictable. What it really means is that all the fat that is transferred may not survive and some of it will disappear, just how much will remain is what we can’t predict. However, whatever remains after 4 months will remain permanently. By now you can see why fat cells are very sensitive and it requires special techniques to make it work. The primary goal is to have the fat incorporate into the area that it is being injected too. In order to accomplish this, it has to be placed in different layers so that the blood supply can get to the fat and make the fat survive. This is why when surgeon performs the procedure they place the fat deeply into the muscle and fat in several different layers so as to create a smooth augmentation.

The buttock is made of fat, skin, muscle and its underlying support is your bone. The shape of the butt depends on the person’s framework the bone structure. However, its major volume and definition comes from fat. It is how this fat is distributed that will make the difference between an attractive, and a not so attractive one.We will explain only the evaluation of the buttock shape. Please remember that there are other variable that need to be taken into account before making any determinations (size, shape, and skin quality When evaluating the shape of the buttock) , it is best to divide the anatomy into three sections; the upper-buttock, the mid-buttock and the lower-buttock. Each of which needs to be evaluated and addressed independently to get the best shape and anatomy.

You will need to wear a body garment for about 3-4 weeks, you may return to work in  about 3-5 days, but it will take one month before you feel completely normal. Sitting can be done the next day and returning to the gym will take 2-4 weeks.

Which one is the best for me? Fat Transfer or Implants?

This is one the most frequently asked questions by the patients who are seeking buttocks augmentation and the answer is:

“it depends on the patient’s anatomy and desire”.

If patient has adequate fat around her body that can be used for transfer and be able to achieve the desired enhancement of the buttocks, then fat transfer is an option. There is some limitation in fat transfer, since one cannot transfer too much fat in one session and if patient wants a really large buttock, then implant may be a better choice. The good thing about implants, whether used in cheeks, chin, breasts or buttocks, are they produce the desire enlargement without limitation in size. With fat transfer or fat injection or stem cell injection, only certain amount can be transferred in one session since fat cells will need adequate blood supply to take and survive.

In our practice, patient who are having liposuction or liposculpture surgery tend to want to do something with the suctioned fat and usually want them to be transferred to other parts of their body including buttocks and face. Those who are thin or want much larger buttocks, choose implants. During the consultation, we will provide you with sizers to check how much augmentation you desire. This is the same thing we do with breast augmentation patients. The patients are active participant in their care including the choice of the implant size.

  • “My Buttock Augmentation procedure went smoothly and very well planned thanks to Dr. Tavoussi and his kind staff. From the first consultation we had – and it was for free – till the procedure’s date, everyone in OC Cosmetic Clinique Surgery was trying to make me feel comfortable and safe which I personally believe is very important before you go under knife.

    Dr. Tavoussi was supportive and knowledgeable to me, he explained every step I was  bout to go through before hand and made me feel more relaxed by doing so. The procedure and facelift was really much easier for me than I thought it was going to be. After the surgery, they took good care of everything and after a week I was able to go back to my normal daily life without any issues. Thanks Dr. Tavoussi, he knows what he is doing and his job very well.”
