Beauty standards are constantly evolving over time, and there’s no better proof of that than your buttocks.
Not that long ago, most women would have considered someone commenting on the size of their rear end an insult. Today, buttock augmentation is one of the fastest growing procedures available in the United States.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 10,000 people sought buttock augmentation with fat grafting in 2014. Similarly, buttock lifts rose by 44 percent and buttock implants rose by a whopping 98 percent respectively.
With the procedure on the rise, plenty of women have questions about it. Here are just a few:
Is buttock augmentation safe?
Not every buttock augmentation procedure is the same. A number of stories have broken recently describing tragedies that befell women who opted for unsafe injections from uncertified practitioners.
Performed by a certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Wooten, however, buttock augmentation is just as safe as any other major surgery. Additionally, Dr. Wooten performs the procedure by transferring your own fat, meaning that no foreign objects will be introduced into your body.
How does buttock augmentation work?
The first step of any major procedure at Beleza Plastic Surgery is the consultation. You’ll sit down with Dr. Wooten and outline your goals for the procedure. She’ll create a surgical plan to make those goals a reality.
During the surgery itself, Dr. Wooten starts by collecting excess fat from various areas of your body (generally the abdomen, hips, back and thighs). She uses this fat to enhance and sculpt your buttocks, increasing volume while maintaining a natural look.
Is buttock augmentation effective?
With realistic expectations and ample body fat to perform the procedure, you have every reason to expect to be satisfied with your buttock augmentation.
In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that 98 percent of the patients they studied reported being “very satisfied” with the results of their procedures.
If you’re interested in buttock augmentation, don’t cut corners when it comes to safety and quality. Choosing a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Wooten is the best way to ensure you’ll get a long-lasting result you’ll be satisfied with.
