What is Buttockplasty or Brazilian Buttocks?
The buttocks, much like the breasts, are an area of arousal. Enhancement of this region could be done by multiple procedures. It could be enhanced by:
- augmentation (using fat injection or Buttock implants),
- reshaping (by liposclpture),
- Buttockoplasty (Butt-Lift) (by reduction of fatty tissues and excess skin) or
to gain a more pleasing appearance in order to enhance its size and shape. This cosmetic procedure can also help those that lack definition in their buttock region to improve upon their appearance.
The "Ideal Buttocks":
Model demonstrating the ideal features of youthful buttocks. Characteristics of an attractive buttocks are different in all ethnic groups. However, the most attractive is the Brazilians which characterized by:
1.A smooth inward sweep of the low back area and waist.
2.A very feminine cleavage as the buttocks separate superiorly and inferiorly.
3.Maximum prominence in the mid to upper buttocks.
4.There should be minimal crease below the buttock, with no droop. Sacral dimples or depressions may be present or absent in attractive youthful buttocks, but are not a determinant of their beauty; rather, they are incidental.
Universal Ideals of Beautiful Buttocks
Most cultures have different ethnic ideals of buttocks shape. There does not seem to be any other area of plastic surgery other than Rhinoplasty where cultural ideals are so crucial to patient satisfaction. The Arabian gulf population is ethnically more diverse than most other buttocks augmentation patients.
Caucasian patients generally want buttocks that are full but not extremely large. Any fullness of the lateral thigh is considered objectionable. As for lateral buttocks, Caucasians fall into two groups: some prefer a full rounded lateral buttocks, while others prefer a flat or hollow lateral buttock, which gives a more "trim" or athletic look.
Hispanic Patients ask for buttocks that are very full, lateral buttocks that are very full, and prefer a slight fullness in the lateral thigh.
Asian patients preferred buttocks that are small to moderate in size, but shapely; they do not like or request fullness in the lateral buttocks or lateral thigh.
African and Americans patients have a strong and consistent cultural ideal of very large buttocks, and several request a "shelf" (extreme prominence of the upper buttocks). The lateral buttocks must be very full. A woman with a very full, prominent trochanteric area of the lateral thighs is considered attractive by both men and women in this culture.
With the increasing popularity of various cosmetic surgery procedures, including gluteus shaping surgery, it is imperative that the prospective patient research and understand different issues like what the procedure can and cannot treat, inherent risks, costs, and so on. Keep in mind, cosmetic surgery is just that a surgical procedure whose results cannot simply be erased. When considering any form of cosmetic surgery, it is important to have a good understanding of the procedure before making a decision.

Who would best Represent an ideal Candidate for Buttock Augmentation?
The ideal candidate for butt augmentation is in good health, within normal weight ranges and wears an eight to 12 dress size. But if a potential patient wears a size two to four dress, she may not have enough fat to spare. That’s one case in which the patient may be asked to gain some weight before again being evaluated.
What are the Benefits to this Procedure?
Benefits include a trimmer, often athletic-looking rear end which enhances the most current fashions in slacks, dresses, workout garb, bathing suits and other revealing garments. As with other surgical rejuvenations, you will most likely enjoy an increase in self-esteem and confidence after everything heals.
Buttocks can be augmented through fat grafting. This involves removal of fat from other areas of the body and transferred into the buttock region.
Of course, the outcome of the procedure depends on the patient’s wishes, the surgeon’s experience and the patient’s anatomy which will be either round, square V or A-shaped.
How is Butt Enhancement Performed?
Where the procedure is performed depends on the patient’s overall health and weight. The operation can be performed on an outpatient basis or in a hospital.
Generally, heavy patients with a Body Mass Index over 31 have the procedure done in a hospital. The procedure could be performed under general or local anesthesia and usually require about 2-3 hours. Smokers should to stop two weeks before the operation.
Augmentation by Fat:
We start by taking fat from the body via liposuction. Often, we will also perform liposuction on the upper and outer sides of the buttocks, the love handles and the outer thighs. Reducing those areas also help add to the appearance of a younger, curvy and more highly lifted derriere.
When the fat cells have been separated from blood and other fluids by special technique, we, using a large syringe, inject the prepared fat cells into the peak of the buttocks by laying down “pearls” or strings of fat between layers of muscle.
Augmentation by Implants:
Implants placed in the buttocks are comprised of a silicone shell filled with a firm but flexible material, typically silicone. These implants are designed to maintain a natural feel to the buttocks. However, types of implants used may vary, depending on the surgeon.
These can be made where the cheek meets the back of the thigh, or down the buttock crease. The latter is the more common place for an incision, since scars are not noticeable.
Working through the incision, the doctor creates a pocket large enough to place the implant and inserts it either under the gluteus maximus muscle, or on top of it. The implants are placed above the sitting area of your buttocks, preventing you from sitting on them and reduce the possibility of the implants shifting.
The same is done for the other cheek. The doctor carefully examines both sides to make sure they are symmetrical and natural. Stitches are used to close up the incision. Patients wake up and are closely monitored until they are ready to be discharged, usually about one to two hours later.
Incision of the lower back is done and excess skin is removed. Then dissection of buttock skin is done to be repositioned into a higher level.
What Should I Expect after Undergoing Surgery?
After the procedure, the patient’s gluteal region may look boxy because of the swelling. But the swelling, along with some bruising, should only last about 48 hours. The typical period of down time after the operation is ten days to two weeks. Also, the typical patient must sleep on her stomach for about ten days while wearing a compression garment.
Moreover, she can’t drive a car for those ten days and may return to her gym after one month.
What Are the Risks and the Results of Butt Augmentation?
The most common complication of butt augmentation is infection which happens in less than 2% of cases. The incisions used to insert the liposuction cannula are very small and may require only a single stitch to close; some are just closed with a butterfly bandage while others are left open so that leftover solution, blood and serum can drain.
Results are usually excellent after healing. But human fat in the best of hands can be unpredictable and the body will normally absorb some. Usually, whatever fat remains after three months will remain permanently.
What Are the Typical Costs Associated with Buttock Augmentation?
Often the price says nothing about the quality of the work. Most multicenter clinics charge much more than private doctors their advertising budget is more and the owner of the clinic has to take his 20% or 30% off the top. In my opinion, you are less likely to get a quality procedures at these multi-center locations.
Although price is a factor when deciding on surgery, the most important factor is that you feel you are getting a good quality, natural-looking result from the procedure.
Buttockoplasty Procedure costs are variable according to the needed size and the used technique. Usually the cost is ranging from 1500 to 2000 U.S. dollars. Most medical insurance providers do not cover this surgery.
