Buttock implant augmentation is an excellent alternative to the fat transfer augmentation in two patient populations. The first patient population that benefits from the augmentation include patients that do not have adequate fat reserves.
Without any fat to harvest, it is intuitive that a fat transfer would not be possible! The second patient population that benefits from buttock augmentation include patients that desire maximum central buttocks projection.
Buttocks Implant Augmentation
When performing the fat transfer, i.e. Brazilian buttock lift, the central buttocks can only be projected minimum to moderate amounts; this is because fat cells don’t have structural rigidity to push the buttocks out maximally.
Instead, an implant is made out of solid silicone that has the rigidity to push out the central buttocks more effectively. This augmentation can be a safe and efficacious buttock augmentation when accurate surgical design protocols are employed.
The most important aspect of this process of augmentation is selecting a buttock implant that will fit inside your gluteus major muscle that spans the central buttocks region. With proper implant selection and meticulous surgical design, by the implant augmentation will provide effective buttock enhancement results.
