This is a relatively new procedure and has really come about because of its popularity in South America and the beach-going culture. But it’s caught on in Australia as well, and I’m seeing lots of patients coming forward for buttock augmentation.
It’s a relatively straightforward procedure, with a hidden incision between the buttock crease, and it’s of extremely good viability and predictability.
Of course there are risks, as there are with any surgery, with the most important probably being infection, but we cover this with routine antibiotics at the time of surgery and for some days afterwards.
There are other ways to improve the size and shape of the buttocks with fat transfer, but this is a little less predictable than the buttock implants, and while it is possible, it may not be as long living as buttock implants.
So if you want to talk about this procedure and hear more about it, come along and I’ll take you through it in great detail and you can then take away some literature and have a think about whether this operation is for you.
