For some people, the size and shape of their buttocks play a significant role in their self-confidence.
When patients are not happy with the way this body part looks, they might not feel confident about going out in public and wearing certain items of clothing. You could boost your own self-confidence by undergoing a procedure called buttocks enlargement.
What is Buttocks Enlargement?
Buttocks enlargement is a procedure that is sometimes called a gluteal augmentation or gluteal lift. It is performed as an outpatient procedure and requires the use of general anesthesia. It is performed most often in a single day surgical center. It is also moderately invasive.
A buttocks enlargement is performed primarily to improve the size, shape, and contour of the buttocks. It may involve the use of buttocks implants that are made out of silicone or the grafting of fat that is taken from other areas of the body.
If you undergo a buttocks enlargement that involves implants, you can expect these implants to be placed deep within the tissue of the buttocks. If you undergo a fat grafting enlargement procedure, you can expect fat to be taken from another part of your body like your thighs and transplanted or grafted into the tissues of the buttocks. A buttocks enlargement that involves the grafting of fat or skin from another part of the body is sometimes called a Brazilian butt lift.
Reasons to Undergo a Buttocks Enlargement
You might question why anyone would undergo a buttocks enlargement. The primary reason is to increase or change the fullness, roundness, or projection of the buttocks. This surgery also improves the balance of your figure, can enhance your self-image, and increase your confidence in the way you look.
Another reason that people choose to undergo the procedure involves repairing damages inflicted by factors that are sometimes beyond their control. The shape, fullness, and projection of the buttocks can be negatively impacted by:
- Sun exposure
- Fluctuations in weight
These factors can cause the loss of elasticity in the buttocks, which in turn can cause sagging. A buttocks enlargement can repair or ease the results that these factors cause.
Buttocks Enlargement Recovery
Recovering from a buttocks enlargement is done almost entirely at home. After the surgery, you will remain under observation in the surgical center for about an hour before being released to go home. Before your discharge, your nurses will show you how to change the dressings and bandages on your buttocks.
You also may be given a prescription for a pain medication. It is important you take the medication as prescribed after your surgery.
A buttocks enlargement can give you the posterior appearance you have always wanted. It can also remedy sagging and other damages caused by factors like aging and weight fluctuations.
