What Is

Buttock Augmentation Surgery?

Buttock Augmentation Surgery or popularly known as “Butt Aug Surgery” is a plastic surgery that can enhance and contour the buttocks to make their appearance and shape well-rounded and proportionate to the rest of the body.  Buttock augmentation surgery involves enhancing the buttocks by using either silicon-based implants or fat grafting increase the size of the butt. 

Dr Santosh Bhatia believes that Buttock Augmentation Surgery needs to performed with the finesse of an artist because it is indeed an aesthetic surgical procedure. His surgical technique combines the vast medical knowledge, surgical skills and artistic vision which ultimately gives the best result for the patient. 

What Are The

Different Methods Of Buttock Augmentation?

There are two main types of methods of Buttock Augmentation: 

  • Silicone Implants
    Silicon butt implants are a preferred method of buttock augmentation all over the world. These implants feel natural, look natural and give the buttock a round and attractive shape. They are safe to use and can last for a very long time. Silicone implants are also used by Plastic Surgeons in case of Breast Augmentation. Silicone is one of the most naturally accepted materials by the human body and hence it is used in multiple ways for different cosmetic surgeries.
  • Fat Grafting
    Fat grafting is another method which is commonly used for buttock augmentation surgery. In this method, the cosmetic surgeon extracts excess fat present in one part of the body and then grafts it inside the buttocks to increase their volume and give them a proper shape.

Dr Santosh Bhatia notes that this method is preferred because there is no foreign object involved in the surgery. It is the patient’s own fat that is utilised. Hence, the body also accepts it quickly and assimilates it naturally.

What To Expect

Before The Process Of Buttock Augmentation Surgery?

In case of a buttock augmentation surgery the pre-surgery prep is not much for the patient. Dr Santosh Bhatia may ask you to undergo a couple of routine blood and urine tests in order to establish basic parameters for the surgery. He may ask you to discontinue a few medicines which might conflict with your recovery process later. And if you are a smoker, you will be asked to quit smoking in the weeks leading up to the surgery. 

But other than that, no special preparation is required from the patient’s side.

How Is The

Buttock Augmentation Surgery Performed At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic?

The procedure begins with the administration of anesthesia. The anesthesia could either be general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. The right choice for your unique case will be made by Dr Santosh Bhatia, the Board-certified Plastic Surgeon of Vanity Cosmetic Clinic. 

The procedure after this varies between the two methods mentioned above. 

  • Let’s first look at the Silicone-Implant Based procedure:
    Once the anesthesia is administered and the patient is comfortable the surgery will begin. The next step is making incisions for the augmentation. Now, there are three different options for the incisions - At the top of both the buttocks At the bottom of both the buttocks In between both the buttocks Dr Santosh Bhatia will decide the type of incision necessary for your surgery. Depending on his decision the incision will be made. Once the incision is made, a soft silicon implant is inserted below the gluteal fascia, above the pelvic bone. The implant is secured in place and then the incision is sutured. Drains are placed by Dr Santosh Bhatia to collect any extra fluids.

  • The procedure for Fat Grafting Based Buttock Augmentation:
    Once the anaesthesia is administered and the patient is comfortably numb, the liposuction begins. Dr Santosh Bhatia extracts excess fat from a predetermined site on the patient’s body through a cannula. Then the extracted fat is purified. The purification process involves removing all other biological entities from the extraction and leaving behind only pure fat. The next step is inserting the purified fat cells into the buttocks of the patients via syringes connected to the cannula. The fat is grafted in layers to ensure a smooth and cohesive deposit. Dr Santosh Bhatia, may remove excess skin and pull the buttocks taut to enhance the contouring on some patients.

What Is

The Recovery Like After A Buttock Augmentation Surgery?

  • Dr Santosh Bhatia might put some medical gauze on the site so as to speed up the healing process and control the swelling. Also, you might have compressor bandages so as to support the newly set contour.
  • The doctor might prescribe some medications in order to alleviate the pain which is common after the procedure. These must be taken as prescribed in order to have a comfortable recovery.
  • In case of non-dissolvable stitches inside the mouth, the doctor might advise a liquid diet for a few days so as to not disturb the stitches in the mouth.
  • The stitches will be removed according to the doctor’s analysis of the healing process.
  • Routine follow-ups must be taken with Dr Santosh Bhatia as it helps to keep a track of the healing process as well as result visibility.

Step 3

You will be prescribed compression garments. The compression garments need to be worn 24/7 till Dr Santosh Bhatia explicitly tells you to stop wearing them.
