Patients routinely compare the results with their friends or a family who has a buttock done already and they want to look the same. The bottom line is, when it comes to surgical results on how big your buttock can get cannot be extrapolated to how big your friend’s buttock was. If you compare two human beings, you will notice that everybody is different. Their skin anatomy, their fat distribution, their skin tightness, the level of projection, and the abdominal wall. Even some patients had surgery before while others have not had surgery before, so all these factors complement to create different types of body anatomy that allows different patients to have different results. When it comes to the buttock augmentation, we need to realize that the results of any given patient will depend on their anatomy. If you compare to your friend or significant other, the only way you can compare apples to apples is if your friend has the same anatomy as you before surgery. There is no question that if all the factors are the same, theoretically you should have the same results, but we know that this is not true. Eerybody is different, even close family members. We go back to the pressures of society, social medias where patients have this desire to look completely different from what they are. While the only thing I can do when it comes to surgery is to provide you an hourglass shape and a larger behind, some patients will have more, other patients will have less. The bottom line is you cannot compare your results, and you cannot expect your results to be equal like somebody that has surgery already. If you do not embrace who you are and what the surgeons can accomplish even before surgery, you are going to be unhappy after the surgery because your expectations are not clear and your understanding of the procedure will ultimately result in dissatisfaction. I can only make you look a better you. I cannot make you look like somebody else. Many times patients even come with a number of cubic centimeters in mind of how much fat they want to be injected in the buttock, not understanding that even the amount of fat that can be removed varies based on location, amount, weight, among other things. Be realistic of what you can do and be realistic of what you think you are going to get after surgery. The only way you are going to be happy with yourself is first to embrace who you are and then allow the surgeon make you a better you. If you want to look like Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian most likely this is not the result that you are going to have. This does not mean that you are not going to have a great result, particularly if you choose a plastic surgeon that understands all the factors involved.
