Skin Condition And Buttock Augmentation Big, round, large buttocks? No longer a dream, but a reality with the help of a butt augmentation procedure. The surgery is safe, efficient and commonly performed nowadays all over the United States. Moreover, butt augmentation can be performed using three different surgical plans: silicone butt implants, fat transfer, and a combination of the first two procedures. The first step in getting the butt of your dreams is seeing a talented, board-certified plastic surgeon for a pre-operative consultation. During this consultation, the plastic surgeon will discuss about the details of the procedure, your medical history, your current health and emotional condition, and a medical examination. The medical examination is important in developing the treatment plan that will deliver the best results for your particular case. The plastic surgeon will check the tissues of the buttocks: the muscles, fat layer, and the skin envelope. The condition of the skin on the buttocks is important for the results of the butt augmentation procedure. For example, if a patient has a poor skin tonus and a lack of elasticity, fat transfer can be the suitable plan. Skin that is very thin and suffering from cellulite and stretch marks can be an issue for patients who want to get butt implants. There is no guarantee that the condition of the skin will improve after butt augmentation surgery is performed. The reality is that butt augmentation doesn’t work on the level of the skin. Butt implant surgery places incisions on the skin to insert implants that are located in pockets inside or under the gluteal muscles. As a result of the procedure, the skin on the buttocks is stretched to accommodate the larger volume. This means that if stretch marks are present beforehand, they will still be there after the procedure and the condition can even be further accentuated. The stretch marks occur as a result of the rupture of the elastin and collagen fibers in the skin. Many patients tend to believe that getting implants or a fat transfer might make the skin on their butt look softer and nicer and eliminate cellulite. This is not necessarily the case. Since we don’t know all the causes of cellulite and there is no efficient treatment that can provide permanent results, all we can do is guess about the effects of butt augmentation on the skin condition. To improve the appearance of the skin, it is important to keep hydrated and wear the compression garments recommended by the plastic surgeon. Moreover, the skin can look softer and nicer to the touch if you use a moisturizer on a regular basis.
