Gluteal implants require a surgical procedure to improve the contour of the buttocks and to create fuller and rounder shapes. Buttock augmentation is usually performed with silicone implants because it feels similar to toned muscles. This type of surgical procedure can cater to both men and women who are looking to get a shapelier and sexier behind, as well as a more proportionate body figure. Buttock augmentation procedure is often performed together with other plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction and arms lifting, to name a few. By combining other plastic surgery interventions with the buttock augmentation, you will be able to significantly improve your overall appearance in just one session. More about the buttock augmentation procedure The surgical intervention does not last longer than two hours and is performed under general anesthetic. The plastic surgeon will make incisions on the butt cheeks area to create a pocket big enough to accommodate the gluteal implants. The buttock implants will be inserted either under the buttock muscle or on top of it, depending on the desired result. It is important for the patient to know that the results are usually permanent. With the buttock augmentation surgery, the patient can achieve the hourglass figure. But often it takes more than just the buttock enhancement to get better proportions for your body. This is why the plastic surgeon might recommend to combine buttock augmentation with other surgical procedures, such as liposuction More about liposuction The term of liposuction or liposculpture, which was introduced in the US at the beginning of the 1980s, is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess fat that cannot be removed through diet and exercise. Common liposuction procedures target areas such as the abdomen, hips, abdomen, thighs and flanks, as well as the arms and even the face. Liposuction can be performed independently or together with other cosmetic procedures such as tummy tucks, breast and buttock augmentation to improve the appearance of the body and give it nicer proportions. During liposuction procedure, the areas with excess fat will be injected with a high quantity of anesthetic to expand the fat tissue that needs to be removed and also to reduce the pain and bleeding. Men and women with good skin elasticity are good candidates for liposuction procedure. It is important to know that cellulite will not be removed with the fat during liposuction. Also, liposuction is not a procedure for the obese as it will not help them lose weight. The sole purpose of liposuction is to remove unwanted fat deposits from particular areas of the body. When performing the liposuction of the abdomen, flanks and thighs together with buttock augmentation, the butt area can be completely reshaped giving the patient with impressive results, all in one session. Many patients need a reshaping of the whole area, not only gluteal implants. This will make the waist look smaller, the hips wider and the buttock rounder. All in all, combining liposuction with buttock augmentation can be a good start in achieving the amazing hourglass figure. When performing liposuction, the patient will be under general anesthetic before small incisions are done in the targeted area. Through the incision the plastic surgeon will insert a cannula that will extract fat. More about breast augmentation and buttock augmentation Breast augmentation procedure can be performed at the same time with the buttock augmentation procedure. It may sound impossible for both procedures to be performed at the same time as they target opposite sides of the body, but in practice, performing surgery on the upper part of the body can be done simultaneously with the lower part of the body. Of course, with more than one plastic surgery procedure performed at the same time, recovery time becomes longer. The benefits of combining breast augmentation with the buttock augmentation are numerous, but maybe the most important is that the patient will leave the medical facility after the procedure looking completely changed and much better than before. Balancing the upper and lower part of the body is important for body symmetry, not to mention that you will feel sexier than ever before. Conclusion Buttock augmentation can be done simultaneously with other plastic surgery procedures. However, it is not recommended to combine butt enhancement with the tummy tuck as they are both on the lower, opposite parts of the body, thus making sitting, lying down and sleeping quite difficult during the recovery period. The plastic surgery procedures that are most commonly combined with the buttock augmentation are liposuction and breast augmentation. Aside from this, procedures that involve a form of body lifting can also be used to compliment the buttock enhancement, such as a breast reduction procedure, an arm lifting or thigh lifting intervention, and even fat transfer to the hips. All these can be combined in order to achieve the hourglass figure.
