What is buttock augmentation surgery?
Buttock augmentation surgery is a surgical procedure aimed at increasing the size and altering the shape of the buttocks. This is usually done through various techniques, either by implanting a filling material such as silicone or by transferring fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, to the buttock area.
The choice of the appropriate method depends on the individual's condition, the desired size, personal preferences, and the professional evaluation and analysis by the surgeon.
Am I a good candidate for buttock augmentation surgery?
Buttock augmentation surgery may be suitable for individuals who have concerns about the size of their buttocks and wish to improve their shape and increase their volume. You would be an ideal candidate for buttock augmentation surgery if:
You feel that your buttocks are small and disproportionate to the rest of your body.
Your buttocks lack volume, fullness, and the desired round shape.
You have lost fat in the buttock area due to weight loss or other factors.
You experience an imbalance in your body shape due to small or disproportionate buttocks.
It is crucial to have a consultation with a qualified and specialized plastic surgeon to assess your case, provide appropriate advice, and guide you towards the best available options to achieve the desired results. Your overall health and associated factors should also be taken into consideration when undergoing the procedure.
Preparation for buttock augmentation surgery
Before undergoing buttock augmentation surgery, there are certain steps and preparations followed at Dr. Mohamed El-Ghalban's clinic to ensure the desired results. Here are the most important steps:
Initially, the specialized surgeon evaluates your case and explains the available options, expected results, and potential risks.
The doctor may also request some laboratory tests to ensure there are no contraindications for safely proceeding with the surgery.
At Dr. Mohamed El-Ghalban's clinic, we prioritize discussing the results the client hopes to achieve from buttock augmentation surgery, explaining all the details of the expected outcomes.
We utilize the latest diagnostic equipment and result prediction methods at our clinic.
In some cases, you may be advised to make general changes to your diet and lifestyle. The doctor may ask you to avoid certain medications, vitamins, or dietary supplements that may affect the coagulation process or wound healing.
Quitting smoking and avoiding alcohol are among the essential preoperative recommendations.
Mental preparation for the surgery is crucial in achieving the desired results. It's important for the client to remember that buttock augmentation surgery is a surgical procedure that may require a recovery period. Temporary pain, swelling, and bruising may occur after the procedure, and this should be expected and accepted.
These are the important steps and guidelines to follow. It is vital to cooperate with the surgeon and strictly adhere to their instructions before the procedure to achieve the best results and ensure your safety.
Steps for Buttocks Augmentation
Of course, the steps for buttocks augmentation vary depending on the technique used. Whether it is done through silicone implants or fat transfer, the procedure generally involves the following steps. Here's an overview of them to help you feel more informed if you decide to undergo the procedure.
Steps for Buttocks Augmentation with Silicone Implants:
The surgeon makes an incision in the skin in the buttocks area. The length of the incision and resulting scar may vary depending on the specific case, but efforts are made to minimize the incision size and place it in a discreet location.
A silicone implant specifically designed for the buttocks is inserted. The placement and insertion technique may vary depending on the type of implant, desired volume increase, surgeon's recommendations, and the patient's body type.
The incisions are closed using either cosmetic sutures, surgical tape, or adhesive skin closures.
Steps for Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Transfer:
Fat is harvested from specific areas of the patient's body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks, using liposuction techniques or specialized tools.
The harvested fat is carefully processed to ensure its viability for the augmentation procedure. This typically involves purification methods to remove impurities, excess fluids, and unnecessary tissues, which can be done through filtration or mechanical means.
The purified fat is then injected into targeted areas of the buttocks using specialized cannulas.
The fat is strategically directed to achieve the desired shape and volume, aiming for balance and harmony in the overall appearance of the buttocks while avoiding excessive concentration in specific areas.
Please note that these steps are general and may vary based on the treating physician's guidance and each individual patient's case.
Recovery Period after Buttocks Augmentation:
The recovery period after buttocks augmentation varies from person to person and depends on factors such as the total volume of transferred fat and the patient's adherence to postoperative care instructions. However, the recovery period may include the following:
First few days: Swelling and bruising in the buttocks and donor areas (where fat was harvested) may be experienced.
First week: Gradual reduction in pain, swelling, and bruising during this week. Some mild discomfort and swelling may still be present.
Second and third weeks: Continued recovery with diminishing bruising and swelling.
After a month: Swelling is nearly gone, and wounds are gradually healing.
Postoperative Tips by Dr. Mohamed El-Ghalban:
After undergoing buttocks augmentation, it is important to follow some postoperative tips to ensure proper recovery and achieve optimal results. Here are important tips for the postoperative stage:
Give your body sufficient time to heal. Rest and avoid strenuous physical activities and vigorous movements in the early days after the surgery.
Follow your surgeon's instructions carefully. This includes taking prescribed medications, using compression garments (if provided), and applying appropriate wound care.
Maintain cleanliness in the treated area, following your surgeon's guidance regarding wound cleansing and applying any necessary anti-inflammatory ointments.
Maintain a healthy and balanced diet after the procedure. Consume foods rich in vitamins and minerals to promote wound healing and enhance recovery.
Avoid smoking after the surgery, as it can negatively impact blood flow and wound healing.
Ensure you attend scheduled appointments with the surgeon to monitor the progress and follow-up on the recovery process.
Drinking plenty of water and engaging in light exercises may play a significant role in quick recovery.
