If you are considering buttock augmentation it is important that you know the pros and cons of this type of treatment. That is why we speak with the distinguished plastic surgeon and medical director of Zuri Plastic Surgery in the city of Miami, Dr. Alexander Zuriarrain, to guide us on the data that we must consider before undergoing this type of procedure.
There are several techniques and substances that can be used to modify the shape and size of the buttocks, however, not all of them work for everyone in the same way.
- One of them is the placement of silicone implants through an operation.
- Another is the Brazilian-style method, which requires a graft or injection of fat that has been transferred from other parts of the body.
- Inject Sculptra. It is a substance that helps regenerate collagen and give volume, which has been on the market for 20 years, but was mainly used on the face. The downside is that the effect only lasts for about 2 years.
" Perfect glutes are developed by a process of liposculpture and fat transfer using plastic surgery techniques that help augment specific areas. The use of the fat of the patient assures us that the results are excellent and without having to worry about any rejection of a synthetic product, "said the specialist.
Now, what should we know about how liposuction is done? About this the doctor told us that the way it is done has a lot to do with how the patient's waist, abdomen and back look before transferring the fat. A good liposculpture creates the base to later create a perfect buttock.
Dr. Zuriarrain believes in minimizing the margin of error and that is why he tries to keep up to date with the advances that can help him achieve the results that he and his patients expect. “Using a wireless ultrasound helps me assure the patient that the surgery is performed with minimal risk. Ultrasound teaches me exactly where the fat is in relation to the muscle. So I can avoid injecting the fat too deep and causing damage to the blood vessels that are deep in the buttock, "he explained.
“My training as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon gives me the opportunity to recognize the anatomy of the buttock and how to achieve perfect buttocks using surgical techniques. There are rules for creating harmony between the thighs, gluteus, back, abdomen, and waist. We must recognize that each patient is unique and to create harmony in their body, a meticulous surgeon is needed,”added the specialist.
Who are the perfect candidates for these procedures.
The perfect candidates are men or women who want a more aesthetic buttock. A person of normal weight who is deficient in fat is an excellent candidate.
Also a person who is interested in improving their silhouette using liposuction.
What risks should we take into account when choosing to increase the buttocks.
There is always a risk with any procedure using liposuction and fat transfer to the buttock. There is also a risk with using a synthetic product. Most of the risks are minimal.
What is the most common and safest procedure?
The most common procedure is combining a liposculpture with fat transfer to the buttock.
I use wireless ultrasound which helps me increase patient safety during fat transfer to the buttock.
