Worldwide, many have considered the procedure of a buttock augmentation. Those who consider an augmentation crave a more balanced and youthful appearance. Weight loss or aging can be another factor in considering a change for a more proportional bottom half. The enlargement of the buttocks has become so common in pop culture, that singer and actress Christina Milian shamelessly wore temporary buttock implants on the red carpet. In Milian’s new television show, “Christina Milian Turned Up”, she worries that her implants may move or even slip out. There is a more natural and safe option to implants such as using the body’s own body fat source to contour a beautiful behind. Fat grafting is a popular method, utilizing natural fat tissue to enlarge or reshape the buttocks otherwise known as the Brazilian butt lift. Fully shaped buttocks are proving to be a symbol of femininity and sensuality.
Dr. Usha Rajagopal does not use butt implants in her augmentation surgeries at the San Francisco Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center. Butt implants may harden over time and lose their natural shape. Surgery involves the incision of silicone implants which are closed with sutures. Other complications may include infection to the implants, and even nerve damage. In addition, special care for silicone implants include not being able to sit on the buttocks for about four weeks. In comparison, Brazilian butt lifts create a more natural, flattering shape with the use of the body’s natural fat. Fat transfer uses suction tubes to remove fatty tissue through liposuction from any area such as the hips, thighs, abdomen or back. The fat is reinjected and grafted at multiple levels. The patient may require up to three visits to the doctor for a permanent contoured behind using the body’s own resources. Fat grafting is an excellent way to contour the buttocks naturally. Recovery time for a Brazilian butt lift involves a one week period off from work, and three weeks away from heavy lifting or exercise.
