Buttock Augmentation San Francisco

Why pursue buttocks enhancement?

Like a voluptuous silhouette of the breast, a curvaceous, well-endowed rear end is considered one of the hallmarks of a youthful and feminine physique. Aging as well as poor genes can result in a posterior that is flatter and lower than desired, causing clothing and swimwear to fit poorly, as well as reduced social confidence.

Buttock augmentation is a safe, effective procedure for recontouring the rear, reducing sagging and wrinkling, while giving the appearance of more toned muscles. Although the buttocks are sometimes enhanced through the use of implants, it is more common to undergo a process of fat cell transfer. During this procedure, donor fat cells from another area of the body such as the hips, abdomen or thighs are harvested via liposuction, purified, and then injected into the buttocks, volumizing the area for a more sculpted, sexy aesthetic. Fat transfer treatment has the added benefit of trimming the donor area, effectively providing two excellent body contouring results in one.

What is the
recovery process for buttock augmentation?

Rest assured that, like with every surgery Dr. Elyassnia performs, he will provide each patient with an in-depth, customized recovery plan. In general, patients can look forward to a swift and manageable recuperation, thanks to the doctor’s conservative, skilled technique.

Some tenderness, bruising and soreness are all par for the course, but these can be lessened with pain medications provided by the doctor for your comfort. Swelling and discomfort will slowly abate over the weeks following surgery. In some cases, a compression garment may be needed to hasten healing and diminish swelling.

Most patients find they can return to their normal activities within 7-10 days, although every patient will heal at a different rate. Patients are asked to use a modified sitting position for the first month and exercise can be resumed within approximately 3-4 weeks. It’s important that you keep the legs moving, taking frequent breaks from sitting at a desk or behind the wheel. Healthy circulation will improve both your recovery and your mood.
