Buttocks Contouring

In an earlier post we discussed buttocks fat grafting; the plasti sugery procedure designed to increase the size and shape of the buttocks through the method of removing fat from unwanted areas and grafting (injecting) the fat into the buttocks. Buttock fat grafting is actually a part of the the larger concept of buttock contouring. As with all cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, the right procedure should be tailored to each individual for their specific needs and goals.

Since the buttock area is a significant part of human health and sensuality, we will disuss in greater detail, over the next few weeks, the concept of buttock contouring.

What is buttocks contouring?

Buttocks contouring is the general term used to describe plastic surgery procedures that are used to improve the shape, size, and appearance of the buttocks. These collect group of procedures include:

-Fat grafting

We have covered buttock fat grafting in an earlier post. Later this week we will discuss buttock lift. This procedure is designed to correct skin and sofy-tissue laxity. It may be used alone or in conjunction with other body contouring and/or buttock contouring procedures.

Stay tuned for the buttocks lift procedure later this week.

All the best,

Dear Dr. Repta,
Thank you for such an informative and educational site. I'm sure your patients must reap the benefits from your caring, educating them, and your obvious attention to detail.
One question on this topic - which technique offers better reults for buttock augmentation - fat or implants? I do have excess fat in other areas of my body...and am also concerned about placing implants in this area. Any thoughts?

All good questions.

The best method for buttock augmentation depends on each individuals body type and desired result. With the exception of individuals that are very thin and do not have excess fat in other areas of the body, buttocks augmentation through fat grafting is the preferred method. It offers a more natural and definitive result without the need for future surgery to replace or reposition the implants.

All the best,

Dr. Repta
