Buttock augmentation is a very popular procedure in South America, it can be done with implants, microfat grafting or lipofilling. Augmentation by macrolane is less popular because the result is not lasting.
Our ideal technique when possible is fat grafting because it gives a natural shape, lasting results and has less complications.
Buttock countouring can be associated with liposuction of other area of the body (abdomen, thighs, calf.), the fat excess is removed with canula, then it is purified and reinjected by a tiny canula to reshape the buttocks in the same time.
The procedure can be repeated four months later to enhance the result because the fat graft can lose 20% of the volume by resorption.
The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia.
Recovery needs two weeks to be at rest, discomfort is mild, the ability to sit down is progressive and can begin after the second week.
