Gluteal (Buttock) Augmentation

In todays society fully shaped buttocks are all the rage. J-Lo and Beyonce have made “booties” popular and desirable. Fortunately, there is a procedure, gluteal augmentation, that can give you the smooth, round “booty” you have always wanted. The procedure will restore your buttocks taut shape as it was in your youth and make you feel more confident about your back side.
Gluteal augmentation may involve fat transfer, implants or a combination of the two procedures. Only your surgeon can determine which techniques are best for you.
For optimal results, gluteal augmentation can be performed in conjunction with liposuction, which ensures that all surplus fat and tissue is removed.
As with any surgery, there are some risks with gluteal augmentation. To minimize your risk, increase comfort and maximize your booty, follow these guidelines
Pick your surgeon carefully. Board certification in plastic surgery and the ability to perform the procedure at a local hospital are very important.
Make sure the operating facility is certified and read all preoperative instructions.
Have someone fill all of your prescriptions while you are still in surgery.
Wear loose comfortable clothing to the hospital.
Start a clear liquid diet 24 hours before surgery.
The night before surgery, take one bottle of magnesium citrate over-the-counter laxative. Stay at home and near a bathroom.
Get a good nights rest and relax; you can even be prescribed a prescription sleep aid if you request it.
Do not sit for the first ten days except to go to the bathroom. You may lie on your back, abdomen or in a recliner, but you may not sit straight up for the first ten days.
Do not use a heating pad, warming blanket or expose your buttock to heat. Numbness in the area means you wont be able to feel heat, which means you may burn without realizing it.
You can expect to begin slow walking at about two weeks, however no heavy exercise like aerobics, running or weight lifting for two months. You will not sit for prolonged periods of time until your buttock skin sensation returns to normal. This usually takes about three months. Prolonged sitting before then can lead to pressure sores.
And of course, if you have fever, pain, drainage, redness or questions, call your doctor immediately.
