3 Things to Know Before Your Butt Augmentation
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your butt? Shapely, curvaceous behinds are becoming increasingly popular, and many women struggle to change the look of their flat backside naturally. There are plenty of workout gurus who say the proper exercise will provide you with the aesthetic you might want, but the truth is that some women are genetically predisposed to have small buttocks, and no amount of physical activity will give them the look they desire. However, your genetics don’t have to have the final say in your appearance.
Butt augmentation surgery is an ideal solution for women who struggle to achieve the curvy backside they have been striving to create. Modern enhancement techniques are providing women with better, more natural results than ever before. The following are the 3 things you should know before you undergo your butt augmentation.
1. Fat Transfer Over Implants
In the past, implants were used to increase the size of the buttocks. While you can still use implants, many people feel that they provide poor results. The edges of implants can be seen in some women, revealing that they underwent a butt augmentation procedure. A newer process called fat transfer uses patient-harvested fat to increase the size of the buttocks. You can gain the benefit of body contouring through liposuction as well as the shape change you desire through fat injections.
Using fat means your buttock blends naturally with the rest of your body and your surgeon can customize the definition and shape of your booty. One good thing about this butt augmentation technique is that you can return to work soon after your procedure.
2. Choose an Experienced Surgeon
If you are considering butt augmentation, selecting the right surgeon will have a dramatic impact on the quality of your results. Since fat transfer is a unique procedure, your surgeon should have extensive experience in this technique. You can always ask to view before and after photos of previous patients to determine if your surgeon is able to achieve the results you desire.
3. Properly Prepare
To prepare for your surgery, you should quit smoking at least six weeks before your scheduled surgery date. Smoking affects your circulation and can slow your healing time. You should avoid taking aspirin and other blood-thinning medication for at least two weeks before your surgery. Prepare a comfortable and easy-to-access resting area where you will be able to lay on your stomach. Have entertainment on hand and fluids readily available. Since you may not be able to shower properly for a day or two, it’s recommended that you take a shower the night before or the morning of your procedure.
