Safe Buttock Augmentation Options
Dr. Constantino Mendieta, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Miami, FL, explains options for buttock augmentation that are safe for patients who are considering undergoing the procedure.
Buttock augmentation is an aesthetic procedure that reshapes and enhances your gluteal area, providing you with an uplifted and shapelier buttock profile.
“There are two safe options for buttock augmentation,” explains Dr. Mendieta. “One is using your own body fat, which is by far the best because it eliminates the risks of complications you would get with an implant. The second option is if you don’t have enough fat, you could get implants inserted safely by a board-certified plastic surgeon.”
Use of silicone to augment the buttock is illicit and harmful to your health. It is often done in back alleys, homes and salons. The effects might not be immediate, however years later they could cause disfigurement.
“Buttock augmentation is a very artistic procedure, it is knowing where to add and where to remove; that artistry is something you want to look out for when reviewing before and after pictures,” notes Dr. Mendieta.
