Augmentations such as butt implants from Dr. Jeneby in San Antonio, TX, may help you create the fuller, plumper body contours you are looking for. At the Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas, we offer several options to help you meet your personal goals.
We encourage all of our potential patients to fully explore their options before deciding on a surgical procedure. Diet and exercise are always good places to start when it comes to improving your body’s shape, but some changes can’t be attained through the usual methods.
If your buttocks are asymmetrical or naturally flat, exercise can’t change your natural figure. However, surgical techniques can.
Lifts, Implants, and Butt Augmentations: Which Procedure Is Right for Me?
Our San Antonio, TX, patients have a variety of options when it comes to both surgical and non-surgical techniques for changing their contours. During your consultation, we can discuss the different techniques and develop a plan that will help you create the shape and size of buttocks you desire.
Until then, don’t let the different terms confuse you.
Butt augmentation is a general term that refers to any surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of your behind. At the Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas, we perform both butt implants and butt lifts, as well as non-surgical procedures.
These butt augmentations can restore the fullness, roundness, and projection of your gluteal cheeks. We frequently recommend butt augmentations to patients who want a better overall balance to their figures.
Patients who have had butt augmentations at our center enjoy the way their body looks in and out of clothes. They feel more confident and are proud to have found a way to accomplish the look they want.
A butt implant involves using a surgical incision to create a pocket for a butt implant to rest in. The procedure is done under general anesthesia. Once the implants are inserted, we will adjust the size and shape of the buttocks to look natural and shapely. When the correct look has been achieved, the incision is closed.
Buttock implants are silicone-filled medical devices. Implants add the volume that fat grafting alone can’t do, especially for patients who do not have enough fat deposits available at donor sites.
We offer a variety of butt augmentation procedures at Plastic and Cosmetic Center of South Texas, including Brazilian butt lifts. However, there are specific benefits to butt implants that many San Antonio women appreciate.
Our patients choose butt implants for the following reasons:
- They don’t have the excess fat needed to perform a Brazilian butt lift
- They want to wear the clothes that they want without worrying about improper fit
- There is no potential for fat reabsorption with butt implants
- Implants will not need to be removed or replaced
- The procedure is safe, quick, and performed in an outpatient setting
Implant procedures can be combined with other augmentation techniques, such as fat injections or grafting. Depending on your needs, combining more than one technique may be needed to help you meet your goals.
A butt lift or gluteal lift reshapes the buttocks by removing excess, loose skin. Once the extra skin has been removed, we will lift and reattach the remaining skin to create a tighter, higher gluteal cheek.
The butt lift procedure is commonly performed after a person loses a great deal of weight quickly, such as after weight-loss surgery. When the body loses weight at a fast rate, skin on the buttocks can droop and leave the gluteal cheeks looking deflated.
Removing the excess skin and lifting the cheek elevates and tightens the buttocks, giving a more youthful, shapely appearance.
Benefits of a butt lift include:
- Improved appearance
- Permanent results
- Less discomfort caused by excess skin
- No risk of foreign body infection
- Firmer appearance of the skin of the buttocks
A butt lift may not always create a full, round look. Patients seeking a full look may need to have implants or fat injections as well as a butt lift. In some cases, fat injections may not be possible until after the lift has been performed.
Results of a butt lift are almost immediate. The procedure is long-lasting if you maintain a healthy weight.
Am I a Candidate for Butt Augmentation?
If you are in good health and at or near your goal weight, you are probably a good candidate for a surgical butt augmentation technique.
If you smoke, you will be asked to quit smoking at least two weeks before surgery and for several weeks afterward. Smoking may increase surgical bleeding, slow healing, cause an adverse reaction to anesthesia, and increase the risk of infection.
Some health conditions may be contraindications for surgery. However, having a certain condition does not automatically mean you can’t qualify for butt augmentation. We can discuss your options and may be able to help you resolve your health condition.
