Buttock Augmentation (Butt Lift)
A non-surgical cosmetic procedure to enhance the shape and volume of the buttocks without the need for surgery. It is referred to as a non-surgical butt lift or buttock augmentation.
You normally see immediate results with increased volume and enhanced contours.
As with any cosmetic procedure, it is crucial to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner to ensure your safety and achieve the best possible results. Additionally, discuss any potential risks or side effects with your practitioner before undergoing the procedure.
How does it work?
The procedure involves injecting synthetic dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid strategically into the buttock area to add volume and create the desired shape. The injection technique is crucial to ensure even distribution and a natural look.
How long does it last?
It's important to note that the results of dermal filler buttock augmentation are temporary.
Some results may last up to 2 years. However, the longevity of the results can vary depending on the type of filler used, your individual metabolism, and lifestyle factors.
You may need periodic touch-up sessions to maintain the desired look.
Are there any side effects?
Pain and Discomfort: Patients may experience mild to moderate pain, swelling, and discomfort at the injection sites immediately after the procedure. This typically subsides within a few days.
Bruising: Bruising is a common side effect of injectable fillers and can last for a few days to a couple of weeks.
Swelling: Swelling can occur at the injection sites and may last for several days to a few weeks.
Redness and Tenderness: The treated area may become red and tender for a short period after the procedure.
Infection: Although rare, there is a risk of infection at the injection sites.
Allergic Reactions: While allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid fillers are rare, they can occur. Symptoms may include itching, redness, and swelling.
Lumpiness or Irregularities: In some cases, the filler material may distribute unevenly, resulting in lumps or irregularities in the buttock area.
Discoloration: Skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation can occur at the injection sites, but this is usually temporary.
Migration: There is a risk that the filler material may migrate from the injection site to other areas of the body. This can result in asymmetry or unintended effects.
Nerve Damage: Although rare, there is a risk of nerve damage during the injection process, which can lead to numbness or weakness in the buttock area.
Granulomas: Granulomas are small, firm nodules that can form at the injection site in response to the filler material. They may require further treatment.
Scarring: While scarring is generally minimal with injectable fillers, it is still possible to develop scar tissue at the injection sites.
Unsatisfactory Results: Not all patients may achieve the desired results with buttock fillers. Factors such as individual variation can influence the outcome.
Fat Embolism (extremely rare): In very rare cases, filler material can inadvertently enter blood vessels and cause a fat embolism, which can be life-threatening. This is why it's crucial to choose a qualified and experienced medical professional for the procedure.
Post procedure advice
It is advisable to avoid strenuous physical activity following the procedure.
Sleep on your stomach or side for a few days to allow the filler to settle.
Follow-up: You may need to return for a follow-up appointment to assess the results and make any necessary adjustments.
