Fueled by women who envy booty-endowed celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, a new trend in plastic surgery has emerged. In recent years, the number of buttock implant and buttock lift surgeries performed in the United States has increased by double digits.
In 2011, nearly 1,200 buttock implant procedures were performed by plastic surgeons. That number of buttock implants represents a 43 percent increase from than 2010. The same is true for buttock lifts. In 2011, more than 4,500 buttock lifts were performed. That's 235 percent more than were performed in 2000.
Celebrities like Beyonce Knowles and Christina Hendricks who flaunt their junk in the trunk on the red carpet, on stage, on television or in movies make women with flat or masculine rear ends acutely aware of what their own derrieres lack. That's why so many more women are opting for either buttock implants or butt lifts.
What determines buttock shape?
In a nutshell, the amount of body fat you have and your genetic makeup determine the shape of your posterior. The shape of your butt is influenced by three muscles - the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. Additionally, the angle of the curve at the base of the spine determines how significantly the butt projects from the body.
So if you're a thin person who lacks body fat, your butt cheeks won't look as round and curvy. Oftentimes, heredity and your genetic makeup may prevent you from gaining weight in your butt. And if you're physically active, you probably have decreased fat in your gluteal area. That means your butt simply won't look as prominent.
Fortunately, Body Cosmetica surgeons can offer two options to augment the appearance of your buttocks.
During this procedure, solid silicone implants are inserted in between your gluteal muscles. Your Body Cosmetica surgeon will help you decide which implant size and shape works best for your unique anatomy. The surgery takes about three hours to perform.
Implants are a great way to augment your buttocks, but this cosmetic surgery requires a significant commitment. Immediately following surgery, you'll have to restrict your movements to ensure the implant works as intended and you don't encounter complications.
Autologous Fat Transfer
Some women opt for a second method of buttock augmentation. An autologous fat transfer, a procedure commonly called a Brazilian Butt Lift, represents a way to make your butt look rounder and more feminine using your body's own fat. During the procedure, fat is harvested from your hips or abdomen. It's purified using a centrifuge and then reintroduced into your buttocks. The result is more full, shapely, heart shaped derrieres that men will covet and women will envy.
While recovery from autologous fat transfer isn’t as intense as with implants, it could take a few weeks before your Body Cosmetica surgeon clears you to resume normal activities.
