The desire to have a bigger, perkier butt can lead people to plastic surgery, as this is the only efficient and safe method to get a considerable increase in the size of your buttocks. When thinking about butt augmentation, most people will have in mind butt implant surgery as this is the most popular method to enhance the buttocks. However, it is important to know that butt implant surgery is not the only method available for butt augmentation. Another procedure that has seen a rise in demand over the last few years is fat grafting to the buttocks.

When considering plastic surgery, most patients are concerned about safety. Is butt augmentation surgery really safe? In just a few words, plastic surgery is safe when performed by a talented, experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon in an accredited medical facility. The procedures are safe when the patient doesn’t have contraindications and well prepared for the procedure. Also, to increase the chances of getting good results and minimizing risks, patients should also follow the instructions of the plastic surgeon. 

There are patients worried about being left with botched results or complications difficult to manage. It is normal to be concerned when online there can be so many cases of patients with botched butt augmentations. What is important to remember is the necessity to have the procedure performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon in a hospital or an accredited plastic surgery clinic. 

Both procedures performed for butt augmentation by board-certified plastic surgeons are safe, and the implants have been approved by the FDA and deemed as safe as well. Fat transfer to the buttocks is not only safe but also associated with minimal risks and complications when compared to other plastic surgery procedures. 

The procedure entails the collection of fat from areas of the body where it is in excess and its transfer to the buttocks. In other words, liposuction is performed on the donor areas, and then the fat is processed, purified, and reinjected into the buttocks to add more volume. During liposuction, it is important to limit the amount of fat that is collected to a maximum of six to seven liters as to avoid an imbalance that could be life-threatening for the patient. An experienced plastic surgeon will know exactly what safety measures are to be taken to keep the patient safe. 

After butt augmentation is performed, it is important for the patient to follow the recommendations given by the plastic surgeon. Mostly it is about not smoking, not lying on the back or sitting on the buttocks, and not engaging in intense physical efforts for at least three weeks post-op. This will prevent you from developing complications after butt augmentation surgery.
