Contouring the Buttocks

We are all familiar with the trends and demands on obtaining a healthier more full figured shape,  the elusive “hour glass figure” has become a social fashionable preference to many men and woman today and as a result recreation of the human form have remained a popular pursuit. Many seek procedural improvements to assist in contouring different parts of their bodies.  Over the past decade, contouring of the buttocks has shown a massive increase in interest by patients and specialists alike.

Patients seek options to correct contour deformities or irregularities of the buttocks, some many involve an overly large buttock while others may feel they do not have enough in the area. Liposuction or Lipo Sculpting is the best option for removing unwanted or unsightly fat from the area, however, many people are not aware of the many other possibilities that are available to reshape the buttocks.

Buttock defects are common and many seek some form of correction. The treatment options that are available should be chosen by looking at the concerns while making sure not to interfere with the necessary functions of this area.

“Contouring of the buttocks increased dramatically from 1997 to the present. Gluteal augmentation has increased 10% in the last few years, but statistics have only recently been collected. Buttock lifts have increased 142%, and body lifts have increased 459% over this same period.”

Contouring the buttocks can be done using many methods to enhance the buttock shape, some of the procedures available are the implants to the buttocks, autologous fat transfer, fat grafting and Liposuction. These options many be used in a combination depending on what you are wanting to achieve.

There are several reasons for changes in the area of the buttocks and are often associated with aging, hormonal changes, weight gain, obesity and sudden drastic weight loss. Exposure to sun and aging also lead to skin laxity or sagging in the area and is often one of the biggest concerns.

The demand to look better and the advances in safety of liposuction and other body contouring techniques have grown, it has resulted in a dramatic increase in the awareness of contouring the buttocks area.

The Brazilian Butt Lift has become a popular choice for many who seek a full rounded more shapely buttocks. This technique is done by Fat Grafting, also known as Fat Transfer, whereby the specialist skilfully removes fat from an area that has unwanted fat deposits and replaces into the region of the buttocks. Using this method the patient has a double benefit of losing fat in one area while gaining volume in another. There are countless benefits for looking at this treatment option but the most important is that there are little to no risk of rejecting the fat deposit as the fat is used from your own body.

All the options are discussed with you during your initial consultation with our Specialist, as well as the risks and special precautions. The Brazilian Butt Lift may be your answer to more shapely buttocks depending on what outcome you want to achieve.
