There are two potential procedures you are going to be faced with. The first is called fat grafting, and it consists of doctors removing fat from your abdomen flanks (or other parts of your body) and injecting it into your buttocks. Most experts advocate fat grafting over silicone implants because it has a low risk of infection and it follows your body contour in case you lose or gain weight.
Silicone implants are your second option, and this method is usually used when the patient is too skinny to be viable for fat grafting, or they specifically want silicone implants in lieu of their own fat. Our surgeons usually use the approach they are most comfortable with, so make sure to discuss all options before undergoing a procedure.
Patients are advised to sit as little as possible in the first 72 hours after the surgery. You are likely to experience moderate pain in the butt and lower-back area after the buttocks surgery, but that will be mitigated and controlled with medications. The patient should not consume alcohol for at least three weeks after the surgery.
After a few days, you’ll have to wear a supportive garment that helps prevent fluid build-up and provide support. It’s much easier to heal after an increase of buttocks with prostheses.
If everything goes as planned, you should see numerous significant improvements after a buttock lift procedure, including a more toned appearance and an overall better aesthetic appeal of your behind.
