The Butt Augmentation are among the most important areas of the female body in terms of aesthetics. Women desire to have a bigger, shapelier, and fuller butt because it makes them look beautiful, sexier, and youthful. While some women get naturally fuller and shapelier behinds, majority of women have buttocks that lack the critical aesthetic features.
The two common aesthetic flaws found in women are flatter and asymmetrical buttocks. Women having these problems often experience lower self-esteem and emotional pain because their body aesthetics are not in tune with modern standards. Fortunately, there are options for plastic surgery to treat these aesthetic flaws. One of the effective treatments for flatter or asymmetric butts is the fat transfer procedure.
Causes of buttock asymmetry or smaller butts
Your genes primarily shape your buttocks. If you have naturally bigger and shapelier buttocks, it indicates there was someone in your immediate family who had a similar butt. However, not everyone is lucky to get bigger and shapelier booties in heredity. Even if you have them in your genes, there is no guarantee your butt will remain the same shape and size for a lifetime. There are a number of factors that can affect the aesthetic features of the buttocks, making them flatter, smaller, or asymmetrical. Buttock asymmetry means your buttocks are either different in shape or size.
The most dominant factor that can take a toll on the aesthetic features of your buttocks is aging. As you age, the estrogen in your body may plummet. Estrogen is a natural hormone in your body that regulates your fertility, sexual tendencies, and femininity. When you are young, this hormone works at its full capacity. As a result, the fat accumulation in your body is concentrated in your butt and away from your abdomen and other areas in your upper body. As a result, your butt is bigger, fuller, and shapelier in your youth.
As you age, the estrogen level gradually plummets. The decrease in estrogen changes the focus of fat accumulation from your buttocks and hips to your abdomen, sides, flanks, and upper back. This causes the buttocks to become flatter, smaller, and/or asymmetrical.
The second powerful factor that is responsible for the smaller size or asymmetry of the butt is pregnancy. During pregnancy, your body experiences hormonal changes, which often increase the size of the buttocks. There is a risk one butt may remain the same size and shape while the other may increase in size and/or change in shape. If both buttocks become bigger during pregnancy, they will become smaller after childbirth as your body will stabilize. During this process, one butt may remain bigger while the other will become smaller.
The third cause of buttock asymmetry is weight fluctuation. When you gain weight, one or both of your butt will increase in size. If both buttocks fail to increase in the same ratio, your butt may become asymmetrical. When you lose considerable weight, it can cause the buttocks to become smaller or flatter.
Last but not least, if someone in your immediate family has asymmetrical buttocks, chances are your buttocks may also become asymmetrical. Genetics plays a critical role in shaping your body areas, especially the buttocks. Many women have a genetic predisposition to getting asymmetrical or smaller booties.
What is the fat transfer procedure?
Fat transfer to the buttocks, more popularly known as the Brazilian butt lift, is a plastic surgery procedure that involves the use of your own body fat to treat the aesthetic flaws in your butt. Fat transfer is a popular procedure in the US, with tens of thousands of patients undergoing the surgery each year. In order to qualify for a fat transfer to the butt, you must have excess fat in your body to be used as donor fat.
During the surgery, the excess fat will be removed from your body areas and transferred to the butt. The common fat donor sites include the abdomen, sides, and flanks. Fat transfer is one of the most effective treatments for smaller and asymmetrical buttocks. Fat transfer delivers natural results and is a relatively safer surgery because it involves the use of your own body fat to enhance your backside.
Steps of the fat transfer procedure
Fat transfer to the buttocks for treating butt asymmetry to add projection and shape to the butts is performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Patients should be sure to discuss their anesthesia choice with the plastic surgeon during the initial consultation. A board-certified anesthesiologist will administer the anesthesia, after which the plastic surgeon will start the operation by removing the excess fat from the fat donor sites.
The fat removal process involves meticulous work and attention to detail. The fat is removed from each area of the body via liposuction, which is yet another popular and effective body contouring procedure. The plastic surgeon will place a tiny incision on each fat donor site and then enter a hollow tube called a cannula into the area. The doctor will then carefully move the cannula back and forth, so the fat cells are set free from the nearby tissue.
The surgeon will then remove the fat cells with the help of a suction pump that will be connected to the cannula. This step calls for extra care, so majority of fat cells are removed unharmed and alive. The incision is then sutured and closed. The same process is repeated on each fat donor site until enough fat has been collected for transfer to the buttocks.
The next step involves processing of the collected fat. The surgeon will treat the fat at a high speed in a centrifuge, so the impurities, dead fat cells, damaged fat cells, and fluids are removed and only the healthy, alive, and unimpaired fat cells are retained for transfer to the buttocks.
The final step in the operation involves the grafting of the fat into the buttocks. This is the most crucial step in the whole procedure. It involves meticulous work and calls for attention to detail. This is where the surgeon’s surgical skills, sense of aesthetics, and artistry will come into play. How will the fat be grafted into your butt depends on the goal of the intervention. Depending on whether you are undergoing the surgery to treat butt asymmetry or to augment your butt, the plastic surgeon will personalize the fat grafting technique to your needs and requirements.
The fat is grafted into the butt via a special needle. The plastic surgeon will carefully pick the fat cells and graft them into your buttocks. If you have buttock asymmetry with one butt being bigger than the other, the surgeon will graft the fat cells into the smaller buttock so it can become equal in size to the bigger butt. On the other hand, if one of your butt is shaped differently or poorly than the other, the surgeon will use his sense of aesthetics and surgical skills to graft the fat into the poorly shaped butt, so they are contoured and match the shape of the other butt.
On the other hand, if your aesthetic goal is to augment your butt, the plastic surgeon will graft the fat in both of your buttocks. The fat injection will add projection and shape to your butt, making them aesthetically appealing, curvaceous, and sexier. The good news is that the procedure is safer and does not require incisions on your butt, meaning you will not get scars on your buttocks.
The results of the fat transfer procedure will gradually evolve over time. The fat grafts will not immediately transpire into the desired results. The fat grafts need to be vascularized by your body, meaning your body must establish blood flow to the fat grafts so they can help you gradually achieve the desired aesthetic outcomes.
The final outcomes will come to the fore after a few weeks or even months. The fat grafting into the butt will behave in the same manner as the fat in other areas of the body. After fat vascularization, you will notice that your butt is gradually becoming symmetrical, projected, and shapelier. The final outcomes will transpire in the form of beautifully contoured, toned, perky, projected, smoother, and balanced buttocks. In order to maintain the achieved aesthetic results, you must maintain a stable weight.
