Orange County, California has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. When you are ready to hit the white sands and cool surf, you want to look great in that new swimsuit. These days, there are many ways to turn heads at the beach: pump up, slim down, or get plastic surgery. A popular procedure for beach season is a lift to the buttocks or a butt augmentation.
According to plastic surgery statistics, buttock lifts and augmentations accounted for more than 4,000 procedures in 2010.
In order to make your butt look great, board certified Newport Beach surgeons have a few approaches at their disposal. Augmentation and lifts are the most popular types of procedures. While both of these surgeries will improve the contour of your backside, they entail two different surgical concepts.
A buttock lift involves small incisions under the buttock and removes excess skin and fat cells. In a lift, liposuction may also be performed to maximize the overall results. A lift is usually done on an outpatient basis and lasts about two hours. Another procedure is known as an augmentation and is designed to increase the buttock contour by adding volume to the Glutes. Volume can be added by implanting biocompatible solids or by fat grafting. Many surgeons employ fat grafting because it offers distinct advantages over other types of contouring procedures.
Fat grafting transfers the patient’s existing fat cells from one part of the body, called a donor site, to the buttock area to increase contour volume. Because the implanted material is derived straight from the patient’s body, there is little risk of material rejection or subsequent infections. The incisions for fat grafting are smaller than those used for implants; therefore, recovery time is generally much quicker.
There are a lot of ways to look great this summer and plastic surgery is sure way to show off your derriere. Lifts and augmentations that include a fat graft technique can get you a beach ready butt in no time!
