Buttock augmentation is recommended for individuals seeking aesthetic improvement in this area by change of its shape and volume. Operation is indicated when physical exercises did not bring satisfactory improvement.

Aesthetically pleasant, round and proportional buttock is not only result of volume enhancement by implant or fat grafting but remodeling of entire back and waist areas.

After detailed examination of the patient and analysis of anatomical proportions, Dr Pietrasik presents plan of surgery with highest chances for obtaining satisfactory result and lowest risk of complication. Individuals with flat buttocks who have deposits of fat tissue in other areas are good candidates for buttock augmentation with fat grafting. If sufficient fat volume is not available in donor areas (i.e. lower abdomen, thighs, back) Dr Pietrasik may postpone surgery recommending to patient moderate weight gain or propose buttock augmentation with implant.

Buttock augmentation is always performed in general anesthesia.

Short (2-3 mm) skin incisions located in fat donor areas and around buttock became imperceptible after normal healing is complete. Buttock implants are inserted through two symmetrical  skin incisions  (5-8 cm) located in gluteal crease. Resulting one scar is upper part of gluteal crease can be coverd by bikini type of dress.

Harvested fat tissue from donor areas (i.e. lower abdomen, thighs, back) is processed in sterile conditions and re-injected with cannulas to the buttock.

Return to normal (non-strenuous) activity takes  2-4 weeks. Sport exercises may be resumed after 6 weeks. Seating and lying in supine position must be avoided for 1 week after surgery.

Compression garment must be used for 6-8 weeks.

Final aesthetic result of buttock augmentation with fat grafting is evaluated after 6-8 months and is related to partial absorption of transferred tissues. Obtained effect is long-lasting but not permanent. When buttock is shaped with implant result is more durable but this method has also some drawbacks. Although buttock augmentation rejuvenates the area, it doesn't stop natural aging processes. Weight changes, pregnancies and hormones can influence initially obtained good result.
