Thanks to the constant advancements being made in the plastic surgery industry these days, it is now possible to have virtually any part of your body improved or altered to your desired specifications. Over the past few years, however, one procedure that seems to be fast gaining popularity is that of buttock augmentation surgery.
How Buttock Augmentation is performed
At present, there are two different methods that can be used to enhance the appearance of your buttocks. The first one is normally referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift or fat transfer method, and it involves the transferring of fat from another area of the body by means of injections into the buttocks area. The second method is known as the buttock implant method, and this involves making an incision by the crease of the butt cheek and inserting a silicone implant into the buttocks. Both procedures are able to enhance and improve the shape of the buttocks substantially. In most cases, buttock augmentation surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure.
Who Can Have This Surgery?
Although many people think that plastic surgery is only for women, this is not the case. More and more men are also beginning to realize the benefits of enhancement procedures. However, if you suffer from any form of bleeding or bruising disorder, you will need to discuss this with your plastic surgeon beforehand, as it may mean that you may not be a suitable candidate for enhancement surgery. It is important to remember that because buttock augmentation qualifies as enhancement surgery, most healthcare providers will not be willing to cover the cost of these procedures.
How Much Will Butt Implants Cost?
Depending on which of the above-mentioned procedures you have performed, this surgery can set you back anywhere between $4,500 to well over $20,000. Factors that will affect the pricing include the surgeon who is performing the procedure, the location where it is being performed, facility fees, and the anesthetist’s fees. In most cases, people who have the implants inserted will need to pay an additional fee for these, whereas with the Brazilian Butt Lift, their own fat will be used instead. In most cases, at least one post-operative consultation with your surgeon will also be included in the cost of your surgery.
Recovery periods for this surgery can range anywhere from one to three weeks. However, even after this period, your surgeon may advise you to not lift anything heavy or engage in any form of vigorous activity for a while. If you have a relatively sedentary job, you should be able to return to work within approximately 10 days. In most cases, your surgeon will provide you with a supportive undergarment that will also need to be worn throughout the recovery process. This will help ensure that everything remains in place while you are healing.
As with any plastic surgery, it is important to use a licensed, qualified, and experienced surgeon, as this will provide the most satisfactory results in the long term. While some people may be willing to have the procedure performed overseas, thorough research should be done beforehand, as not all surgeons in other countries are registered and experienced to perform these procedures safely.
