Male Buttocks implants and reshaping procedures alter and improve the appearance of the male and female Buttocks. This is a relatively new field in aesthetic surgery, however along the later years this type of operation has become popular particularly in big cities like Rio deJaneiro, Sydney and Los Angeles. Numerous patients feel uncomfortable with their posterior contour and anxious by circumstances linked to swimming, beach or sports. Also, changes in dressing fashion, codification of aesthetic norms of the buttock, as well as procedural improvements have boosted interest in buttock augmentation surgery.
Plan your Buttock Enhancement treatment
People who wish to enhance, lift, reshape or enlarge the buttock mounds, have 2 options:
1. Enlargement with fat transfer (your own fat)
2. Or using a variety of different size and shape buttock implants from which to choose.
The decision is made depending on each person’s individual wishes and on their general body build. Normally, anyone in average physical condition or good health can be a candidate for buttock augmentation surgery.
Fat transfer: It is a minimally invasive procedure that comprises of fat suctioning from other part of your body, purifying it and transplanting it into the buttock area to look as natural as possible for the optimal cosmetic effect. It is generally performed under general anaesthetic or local anaesthetics with twilight sedation as a day case, you will return home the same day, have a quick recovery time and less painful than buttock implants.
Male Buttocks Implants: It is a greater operation however gives you permanent results. It involves having a 5-7cm single incision located over the tailbone in the midline, through this incision the buttock muscle (gluteus maximus) is identified and dissected to create just large enough pocket for the implant. The implant will be implanted and positioned to look natural.
The patient will require staying in Hospital overnight. Pain medications typically are prescribed to help with the discomfort. Some patients will need drains overnights.
There is typically minor swelling and bruising after buttock augmentation and the results will be noticeable immediately after surgery. The procedure is done under General Anaesthesia or/and epidural anaesthetics.
Fat transfer: Quick recovery, pain normally tolerated with simple analgesia.
Male Buttocks implants: The patient may be very uncomfortable for the first few days. It is difficult to turn in any position to get comfortable. It is advisable that someone will be with the person for the next several days just to help with getting out of bed, prepare meals and so forth. It will take a few days before the patient will find it more comfortable to walk about and get back to everyday activities.
The dressing should remain dry and intact for few days. The patient will be reviewed at the clinic 7 days after surgery for wound and implant check.
What are the risks associated with this procedure?
Plastic surgery, like any surgical procedure, carries inherent risks and potential complications.
Please read our Risks and Complications of Plastic Surgery page.
Getting you back to work and daily activities
Fat transfer: Return to light work in 2 days time, daily activities in 7-10 days.
Buttock implants implants: Full activities including gym, work, bicycling, and running can generally be resumed around four weeks following surgery. It can take up to six months until the results feel as if they’re part of the body and the patient forgets about them even being there.
Buttocks Reduction and Recontouring
Aesthetic surgery of the buttocks encompasses many methods. Patients may seek to enhance buttock shape with liposuction, buttock lift, buttock implants or fat transfer procedures. Patients with traumatic buttock injuries and contour deformities from injections also require correctional procedure, often with fat injections, and autologous tissue flaps. The dramatic increase in body contouring after massive loss associated with bariatric surgical treatments for obesity has also extended to buttock contouring. Weight loss giving flat buttock deformities are often severe in nature and pushing the need for buttock enhancement surgery.
It is also imperative to recognise the buttock reshaping surgery should address the whole back, flanks, hip and thigh as one unit, it is a rather back, buttock and thigh remodelling procedure.
Recent studies in evolutionary biology have suggested a strong correlation between the “hour-glass” figure and general physical and psychological health. This correlation is best summarized by an ideal waist-to-hip ratio of 0.7 that transcends cultures, is temporally stable, and is cross-generational.
The function of the buttock musculature instability and gait is a key consideration and usually has an influence on the procedure chosen.
Dr Barnouti feels that no procedure should be carried out on the buttock area or the posterior contour without a full assessment and comprehensive understanding of the complexity of it. Patients looking for treatment should be made aware about the potential risk factors related with any surgical procedure.
Plan Your Posterior Recontouring Surgery
It is important to recognise the differences between the female and male buttocks. A women’s buttock is characterised by curvy lines, round volumes and prominent projection, while men’s buttock characterised by straight lines, square volumes and side depressions. Sagginess of the buttock should not be present neither full gluteal crease which may signify early ptosis. A full assessment and knowledge of all the above is extremely important and should be brought to the attention of the patient prior to surgery. The fatty fullness under the crease, what we call banana deformity, Cellulite-contour irregularity of the skin and the saddle bag has to be addressed. Buttock contouring surgery should address all the above points to be able to produce desirable results that match our patient’s expectations.
There are diverse techniques suiting different patients for buttock contouring surgery. They comprise of minimally invasive procedures, liposuction, buttock lifting procedure, Buttock enhancement with lipofilling or implants procedures.
Candidates (Women and Men) who will benefit from Buttock recontouring procedures are:
1. Flattened buttocks (developmental or post weight loss)
2. Small buttocks
3. Saggy buttocks
4. Buttocks that is disproportionate in regards to corporal harmony.
5. Flattening on the sides of the buttock (Trochanteric depressions) are unflattering aspects of the female gluteus that can benefit from the procedure.
6. Large buttocks and thighs
7. Large flanks
8. No waist definition
Dr Barnouti and Sydney Plastic Surgery offer the latest in Buttock Reshaping Surgery:
1. Buttock lift
2. Buttock Augmentation
3. Buttocks reduction and reshaping with or without liposuction: for patients who have large buttocks.
4. Love handles liposuction: Fatty accumulation under the waist.
5. Saddle Bag correction: fatty accumulation on the sides of the thighs
6. Banana fold deformity treatment: Fold consist of fat deposit and fascial tissue at the junction of the lower part of the buttocks and the thigh.
7. Gluteal retraction Treatment: irregularity, depression and hollows on the buttock surface caused by pathological conditions of the subcutaneous tissue, fascia or muscle.
A high quality cosmetic plastic surgery occurs from clear vision and understanding of the beauty concepts of the buttock.
You will need simple and compression dressing at the back area for a week. You will also require pain killers and antibiotics for that period. A follow up appointment will be arranged for removal of dressing and wound check. The sutures are dissolvable.
Back to work and normal activities
We encourage you to begin walking immediately after surgery, although you will need to take it lightly for the first 24-48 hours. Back to light duties in 1 week time.
Back to normal activities in 2-4 weeks time.
Liposuction is the most commonly performed plastic surgery in Australia. This method is used to reshape the body by permanently removing localised fat deposits. Normally, the suctioning is performed in the low back above the buttocks, the back of the thigh just below the buttock fold or on the hip at the side of the buttock. The objective is to create a natural rounded curve to the buttock that recalls the look of the slim, well-proportioned athletic body.
The tendency to accumulate fatty deposits on the buttocks may be inherited, and these deposits are often resistant to diet and exercise. Countless patients become disheartened at having lost unwanted pounds without seeing a significant difference in this area. The general proportions of the body may be unbalanced, and the additional volume can restrict clothes from fitting well. In these cases, liposuction can successfully trim excess fat to bring better balance and symmetry to the body.
Liposuction is an excellent way to get rid of those bulges that you cannot seem to get rid of any other way. If you’re contemplating buttocks liposuction, the following information will provide you with a good introduction to the procedure.
During the consultation, you’ll be able to talk to your Plastic Surgeon, Dr Barnouti, about the changes you would like to make in your appearance. Dr Barnouti will explain the different options available to you, the procedure itself, its risks and limitations.
He will start with a physical examination to assess your overall weight, your skin and muscle tone, and the fat deposits in various parts of your body. He will also document your complete medical history, along with any medications that you are currently taking.
Keep in mind that the bigger your goals, the more you will have to do to achieve those goals. If you are just concerned about removing fat, liposuction alone will achieve that goal. But if you want an athletic, sculpted look, and you want to look great in a bikini, you may need to incorporate extensive exercise into your plan.
Be sure to ask all the questions you have about the procedure, and ask to see photos of the surgeon’s recent liposuction surgeries, before and after treatment. Education on everything you can about your options, risks and benefits is the key to making an informed decision.
The surgeon will mark the specific areas of the body where the fat is to be removed. An intravenous (IV) line will be inserted in a vein in your arm to make sure the fluid level in your body remains in balance. You or your surgeon may choose for general anaesthesia, or you may choose local anaesthesia and a sedative for relaxation.
During the procedure, Dr Barnouti makes a tiny incision in the skin, typically in or near the buttock crease, and introduces a thin tube called a cannula into the fatty area. The cannula is used to break up the fat deposits and sculpt the area to the desired proportions. The unwanted fat is suctioned out with a vacuum canula.
In the super-wet technique, a saline solution containing a local anaesthetic and adrenaline is injected into the area to be treated, which makes the fat deposits easier to break up and extract. This additional fluid also minimises trauma to the surrounding tissue, reducing swelling and post-operative pain. The administration of adrenaline also decreases bleeding during surgery, further reducing risks.
The tumescent method, in which even larger amounts of liquid solution are injected, has similar benefits.
A fairly new technique, water jet soft liposuction, uses water jets to liquefy the fat and numb the area followed by fat suction. Like the super-wet and tumescent techniques, water jet technique minimises trauma, bruising and blood loss. It is predominantly useful for small and moderate amount of fat. For more details enquire with Dr Barnouti’s office.
Dr Barnouti will choose the best procedure for you. His choice will be determined by a combination of factors, including the precise area to be treated, the amount of fat to be removed and your preferences.
After The procedure
For a day or two, you should expect to feel tired, as though your body has been through a workout – and it has! Your hips and legs will be stiff and sore, and you could experience some pain, burning, swelling, bleeding or temporary numbness. You will be prescribed simple analgesic medication to relieve this initial discomfort.
Your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic ointment to stop infection at the incision sites. Your stitches will be removed in a week to 10 days, unless they dissolve on their own.
You will be fitted with a tight compression garment to be worn for up to six weeks after your surgery. This specially designed garment will help reduce pain and swelling, and help your body settle into its new shape.
Getting you back to work and normal activities
Most of the bruising and swelling should subside within three weeks. You will be able to commence light activity as soon as possible. Return to work within a few days if your work is fairly sedentary.
You should avoid vigorous activities for 4 weeks as your body heals, but within 4-6 weeks you should be able to resume all normal activities.
It’s important to continue wearing the compression garment, which can be easily unseen under your clothing, for 4-6 weeks.
