Butt Augmentation with Implants
Buttock augmentation is a procedure that reshapes and enhances the gluteal area, providing an uplifted and shapelier buttock profile. The most frequent methods for enlarging and reshaping the buttocks are fat grafting using your own natural fatty tissue (popularly referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift), or with buttock implants. These procedures are ideal for anyone looking to add volume to the derriere. In this Smart Beauty Guide Exclusive, Dr. Johnny Franco discusses how the buttock augmentation procedure can be used to enhance your overall figure and profile. Similar to breast implants, your surgeon will help select an appropriate implant size that fits your body. It can then be placed in several different ways, resulting in the desired shape and projection. While some may think this procedure is only for women, that couldn’t be further from the truth! Men turn to this procedure when their goal is to enhance their overall figure or have been unable to improve the gluteal area strictly with workouts. When it comes to recovery, your surgeon will give you detailed instructions and discuss how long it will be before you can return to your normal level of activity and work. Dr. Franco shares that he has his patients refrain from sitting on the buttock or laying on their back to avoid direct pressure the area for at least six weeks. During the six week period, patients can stand, walk, kneel, or lay on their belly.
