What is Buttock Implants?

The buttocks, much like the breasts, are an area of arousal. Buttock implants provide patients the opportunity to gain a more pleasing appearance. This involves the surgical insertion of artificial implants into the buttocks in order to enhance its size and shape. Buttock implants can help patients gain a more sensuous backside. This cosmetic procedure can also help those that lack definition in their buttock region to improve upon their appearance. The implants are comprised of a silicone shell and filled with a firm, flexible material, like silicone. Patients that undergo this procedure not only enhance their appearance, but many also experience a boost in their self-esteem and self-confidence. Buttock implants have become quite a popular procedure. Many women, and even some men, are looking to add more to their backside.

Buttocks can also be augmented through fat grafting. This involves removal of fat from other areas of the body and transferred into the buttock region. Liposuction is usually performed to remove fat from the other areas. Liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with buttock augmentation, in order to further enhance the buttocks new contour.
