There are several reasons why a person might want to change the shape of their backside. Sometimes age causes the butt to fall and lose its youthful shape. It can also cause sagging and skin laxity where there used to be tight, firm, youthful skin. Sometimes weight gain or weight loss, such as occurs during and after pregnancy, can contribute to this sagging, slack appearance as well. Other times, a person may simply be unhappy with the look of their backside and wish to change its appearance. Maybe you are someone who has always had a flat butt or maybe you would just like to fill out the backs of your jeans with a perkier, rounder shape. Whatever the reason for wanting to change your shape, a butt augmentation might be able to provide a cosmetic solution.
Buttock implants may be inserted into one of several location points depending on what location will best fit your needs. These incision points include at the top of each buttock, underneath the gluteal crease where the cheek meets the thigh, multiple incisions made between both cheeks, or one incision placed down the center of the butt, hidden in the butt crease. Implants are either silicone or water-based and are specifically designed to be inserted into the buttocks to improve the contours of the backside. Placement is varied according to the type of implant your surgeon uses, as well as the desired degree of enlargement, your body type, and your surgeon’s recommendations. Your incisions will be closed with the use of suturing, skin adhesive and surgical tape.
With this procedure a soft, shaped silicone implant is placed through an incision hidden inside the natural buttock crease, or an alternate incision site may be used. Your plastic surgeon will provide further details about these incision locations during the consultation.
The implant is positioned in a pocket below the large buttock (gluteal) muscle and above the pelvic bone.
The incisions are closed with sutures, drains are inserted, and a compression garment is worn following surgery.

The results of buttock augmentation are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for a fuller butt. Results of this surgery are permanent.
During the first couple of weeks post-procedure, patients should plan to:
Rest and sleep primarily by lying on their stomach or sides.
Slightly squat (rather than sit) when using the bathroom.
Refrain from driving until fully healed.

BUTT AUGMENTATION FAQS
DO THEY LOOK FAKE?
FAT TRANSFER OR IMPLANTS?
Both techniques are common among cosmetic surgeons and both achieve good results. The biggest factor is on how long you wish the enhancement to last. Implants are long lasting and may be better if you want the look to stay for a long time. Fat transfers do not last forever. In fact, some of the fat used during this process will be reabsorbed into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages with your surgeon and come to an agreement based on your aesthetic goals and anatomy.
CAN I SIT?
WHAT IF I GAIN WEIGHT?
Obviously, the best long-term results will be in those patients who maintain a healthy goal weight. Gaining weight after this surgery will compromise the surgery results because during weight gain, fat goes towards the butt first. This will hide the effects of the surgery. By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, the results will continue to last.
