Buttock Enhancement Candidates
Patients who are physically healthy, non-smokers may be good candidates for buttock enhancement. Those who feel that their buttock is too small, or are unhappy with the shape or flatness of their buttock can benefit from this procedure. A consultation with one of our plastic surgeons can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
Buttock Enhancement Procedure Options
When it comes to buttock enhancement in Virginia Beach, three general approaches are applied. The appropriate technique will be chosen based on each individual’s skin elasticity, the amount of body fat available for liposculpture, and buttock size and shape.
The three approaches used at Associates in Plastic Surgery include:
- Autologous Buttock Augmentation: After the facelift surgery, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The surgeon will provide instructions on how to care for the incision sites and manage any discomfort. Pain medication and cold compresses can help alleviate discomfort and reduce swelling.
- First Week: During the first week, it’s essential to rest and limit physical activity. Your surgeon may schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing progress. At this stage, some bruising and swelling will persist, but you should notice gradual improvements.
- Two to Four Weeks: Swelling and bruising will continue to subside during this period. Most patients can resume light activities and return to work after the initial two weeks, depending on their individual healing rate.
- Six Weeks: By six weeks post-surgery, most of the visible swelling should have subsided. However, it’s essential to continue following your surgeon’s guidelines for a full recovery.
- Long-Term Results: The final results of a facelift can take several months to become fully evident. You’ll notice a more youthful, lifted appearance with improved skin texture and diminished wrinkles. The outcome should look natural and harmonious with your facial features.
- Maintaining Results: While a facelift provides long-lasting results, it does not halt the aging process entirely. To maintain your youthful appearance, it’s essential to follow a healthy lifestyle, protect your skin from sun damage, and consider non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers or Botox for maintenance.
- Possible Complications: Like any surgical procedure, facelifts carry certain risks. These may include infection, scarring, temporary or permanent nerve damage, and unfavorable healing. Choosing a skilled and experienced surgeon reduces the risk of complications.
Following your procedure, you will need to wear a support garment to help achieve optimal healing. Exact recovery time will differ from patient to patient depending on the augmentation technique that was used. It is important to follow your surgeon’s specific post-op instructions for a safe and quick recovery. Most patients are driving, and back to work and exercising in 10-14 days.
During the consultation, the most appropriate technique will be determined to reach your individual desires. If you are interested in buttock enhancement in Virginia Beach, contact Associates in Plastic Surgery today.
