Buttock Augmentation: Is it Right For You?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is big news in cosmetic surgery these days. But what’s it all about and is it worth the hype?

After over two decades of impossibly skinny women adorning our magazines, films and television screens, the curve is well and truly back in fashion. The likes of Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and Amber Rose have made curvaceous, shapely rears desirable again- and whilst this spells great news for those of us who don’t enjoy living on lettuce leaves, we’re not all blessed with plentiful, perfectly rounded bottoms.

Even if we did have a Kardashian style rear in our youth, it’s a rare woman who manages to hold onto that look. As we age our bodies naturally lose that firm, plump, apple effect that’s associated with being young and fresh. Our ability to fill our jeans isn’t always what it was and we’re often complaining of looking flat and deflated from behind. The good news is that there is an answer, and Dubai is fast becoming the place to go and find it.

Buttock Augmentation Surgery, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, is now one of the most popularly requested cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. It’s a highly effective way to get that sexy, perfectly plump bottom that all the A-Listers are sporting and it’s been reported by countless women to have had an incredible effect on their overall confidence and self-esteem.

So, let’s explore all the ins and outs of Buttock Augmentation Surgery and what it could do for you. Any kind of cosmetic procedure is a big decision which you should fully understand before going under the knife- so in this article, we’ll discuss the pros, cons and what you can expect before, during and after the surgery.

First, it’s important to identify why you’re thinking about undergoing Buttock Augmentation Surgery. There are lots of reasons why women are attracted to this procedure, and any good surgeon will discuss these in full as part of the initial consultation. The most common reasons stated by patients of the Nova Clinic in Dubai include improving self- confidence, regaining a youthful shape, and simply wanting clothes to look better on their bodies. A firm, round bottom has always looked fantastic in a pair of tight jeans, and knowing you look good from behind is a real boost all round. This confidence boost is why so many women are drawn to Brazilian Butt Augmentation.

During your consultation, your surgeon will also perform an overall health check to ensure you’re fit and well enough to have the surgery. Although this is a relatively simple and painless procedure compared to other cosmetic operations, it’s still important to be clear that your body can take it. If you’re convalescing or experiencing any major health conditions, any kind of cosmetic surgery is a bad idea so a reputable surgeon will advise postponing Brazilian Butt Augmentation until you’re fit and well.

The procedure

The Buttock Augmentation Surgery procedure involves moving unwanted fat from one part of the body and transferring it to the buttock area for an immediate lift and boost. This procedure is known as tumescent liposuction and you should not experience any pain while the surgeon is at work- just a mild feeling of discomfort. Because you’ll only need a local anaesthetic there’s no reason to expect the wooziness and nausea that comes with a general.

Buttock Augmentation happens in two stages; fat extraction followed by transference to its new area. Commonly this fat comes from the trunk or lumbar regions, but it can be from anywhere on the body that you have excess fat that’s pure and of a good quality. This often raises a question among patients- what exactly is “good quality” fat? Simply put, some cells contain toxins and the transference of these could result in a lumpy effect and raise the risk of infection. Your surgeon will, therefore, harvest the purest fat cells in order to deliver the best and most successful effects.

All Brazilian Butt Augmentation starts with your surgeon injecting you with a diluted anaesthetic containing epinephrine and lidocaine. This will cause the local area to swell, making the extraction of fat cells easier for the surgeon. A tube is then inserted into a small incision, then a syringe or surgical vacuum will be used to suck out the fat. Once a sufficient amount of quality fat cells have been obtained, they will then be transferred directly to the buttock region in small, localised amounts.

After your Button Augmentation Surgery, you can expect to be back to your normal routine within a relatively short period of time. The procedure is quite painless but you should expect a little discomfort and swelling for a few days- one day’s bed rest is usually recommended and heavy lifting or strenuous exercise are best avoided. It’s a good idea to have someone help you around the house for a couple days if possible to- see it as an opportunity to take a well-earned rest!

As with any type of cosmetic procedure, it’s essential that you find a reputable surgeon to take care of the whole Buttock Augmentation process. Based in the heart of Dubai, the Nova Clinic is one of the most highly respected cosmetic centres in the Emirate thanks to the wealth of skill and experience of the staff team.

The bottom line (if you’ll pardon the pun) is that Brazilian Butt Lift surgery really does work, but only if conducted by a properly qualified and experienced surgeon you can trust.
