Why do patients require buttock contouring?

The aging process takes its toll on the buttocks - just as it does with the face and breasts. As time passes, the buttocks can suffer from tissue loss which results in sagging. We find there are two key groups of people who can really benefit from buttock contouring. The first group has adequate amount of tissue but the buttocks 'hang' downwards. The second group suffers largely from tissue loss. We can offer a number of different methods that cater for buttock aesthetics.

How is buttock countering performed?

There are a number of new and excellent methods for treating buttocks that have suffered from tissue loss. One of these methods is to replace the lost tissue with fillers. These are the 'body versions' of the organic fillers that are commonly used on the face. There are a number of advantages of these types of fillers, namely that they are easily injected with needles in 10 minutes, they are dissoluble, organic substances and they are not allergic.

Another method involves using the patient's own tissue. In this method, unwanted fat tissue is extracted with a laser lipo operation and injected into the upper part of the patient's buttocks to create the required volume. The same process can also be carried out with stem cell enriched fat tissues - we can this stem cell enrichment. Using normal lipo, we find around 10% of the fat injected is permanent (as in, it lasts a lifetime), but with stem cell enrichment, 60% of the injected fat is permanent - for life. This is a huge improvement.

If there is not enough fat in the patient’s body, implants can be placed from the outside. In buttock contouring with implant placement, the implants are selected according to the anatomical structure of the buttock. These implants are specially designed to fill the gaps and sides of the buttock and are placed under the buttock (not under the skin). Silicones are fully stable and look completely natural in the area in which they are placed. To place them, an incision of 3 to 4 cm is made through entry from the gluteal fold (the line between both buttock muscles). Since the implants are placed with the help of an endoscope, the incisions on the skin are kept short, the operation is done safely and the operation time is around 40 minutes.

How long does buttock contouring surgery last?

With today’s technology, buttock contouring surgeries are completed in around 40-60 minutes.

When can the patient go back to normal life after buttock contouring surgery?

Even though it depends on the application, the patient can usually resume normal life after one week .

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the main factors to be considered before buttock contouring surgery?

As with all surgical procedures generally, patients should avoid using blood thinners, limit drinking alcohol and smoking as much as possible and ideally, stop altogether in the last couple of days before the surgery.

What factors should be considered after surgery?

This depends on the type of surgery. If implants have been placed or if fat injection has been carried out via liposuction, patients will need to wear a compression garment after surgery. There is no need for special care, other than sleeping face downwards and being careful when sitting and standing up. If implants are used in the surgery, the patient should never have buttock injections.

Are any scars left after buttock contouring?

If the buttock contouring is done with implants, there will be a 3 to 4cm incision scar in the area between the buttocks. Other methods of buttock contouring use injections, so there are no scars.

Which areas are suitable for the derivation of the fat tissue to be injected on buttocks?

The fat tissue needed for buttock contouring can be derived from anywhere in patient’s body where there is excess fat. The tummy, belly, thighs, inner legs and knees are ideal areas for this.

Who are the best candidates for buttock contouring?

Buttock contouring is especially suitable for people who have flat, sagging or asymmetric buttocks, buttocks that are too small compared to their bodies or those who have lost the natural shape of their buttocks as a result of weight loss or age. The method of buttock contouring will be decided during examination and consultation with the patient.
