Buttocks augmentation surgery is a surgical procedure performed to achieve a fuller and more aesthetic appearance of the buttocks. This procedure aims to achieve prominent and fuller buttock contours that are more harmonious with the contours of the person’s body. Buttock augmentation surgery is usually performed with two main methods: Buttock implants and fat transfer.
Results of Buttocks Augmentation Surgery
Immediately after surgery, edema (swelling) and bruising may occur in the hip area. This is a natural result of the surgical intervention and will decrease over time. Pain and soreness may be felt in the first few days, but this can be controlled with painkillers recommended by your doctor.
After buttock augmentation surgery, you can observe that the buttocks have a rounder, fuller and lifted appearance. The results of the surgery are usually permanent, but may change over time due to age, weight changes and other factors.
Risks of Buttocks Augmentation Surgery
As with any surgical intervention, buttocks augmentation surgery also has risks:
- There is always a risk of infection at the surgical site.
- There is a risk that both hips are not exactly the same size or shape.
- In rare cases, bleeding, fluid accumulation or anesthesia-related complications may occur.
What You Should Know About Buttocks Augmentation Surgery
Immediately after surgery, sitting for long periods of time should be avoided for the first 2-3 weeks. But don’t worry, this process is temporary! It is important to stick to this rule as it can negatively affect your healing process. You do not need to postpone your need for bathing; you can have contact with water only 3 days after surgery. Most patients are able to return to their desk jobs in about 10 days. And after 3 weeks you may feel ready to start light exercises.
If you smoke, you need to make some changes before and after surgery. Smoking negatively affects blood circulation and oxygenation of tissues. Therefore, you should quit smoking completely or minimize it at least 15-20 days before surgery. In the first month after surgery, smoking should be avoided to prevent the negative effects of smoking on wound healing. Smoking restricts blood flow to the surgical site by narrowing small blood vessels. This impairs tissue nutrition and can lead to cell death, melting of fatty tissue, discharge, wound dehiscence and risk of infection.
Why is Buttock Augmentation Surgery Performed?
Buttock augmentation surgery is performed to provide a fuller and lifted appearance of the buttocks in accordance with the aesthetic expectations and body proportions of the person. Reasons for hip augmentation surgery:
- Many people want to have fuller and lifted buttocks that are more suitable for their body proportions. With the change in the understanding of fashion and beauty, fuller buttocks can be considered more aesthetically attractive.
- Some people may have a congenitally asymmetrical or low hip structure. Such natural structural differences can be corrected with buttock augmentation surgery to achieve a symmetrical and aesthetic appearance.
- As age progresses or due to the effect of giving birth, sagging or loss of volume in the hip tissue may occur. In these cases, a rejuvenated appearance can be achieved with hip augmentation surgery.
- Rapid weight loss can lead to skin sagging and volume loss in the hip area. With buttock augmentation surgery, it is possible to regain this lost volume and achieve a firmer buttock appearance.
As a result of some accidents or injuries, the natural form of the hip area may be distorted. Buttock augmentation or contouring surgeries are preferred in such cases to restore the natural appearance of the area.
