This 44 year old female presented to Dr. Siamak Agha at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center in Orange County for a buttock augmentation. On examination by Dr. Agha, the patient was found to have significant buttock deflation and sagging. Her buttocks were found to be not only small but flat with skin ripples over the lower buttock region on both sides. The buttocks were also found to have depressions on the outer aspect. Examination of the rest of the patient reveled minimal fat over her abdomen, flanks, love-handles, or thighs. Patient had small deposits of lower back and saddlebag fat. Her buttock augmentation post-operative pictures were taken at 6 months after her surgery.
PROCEDURE:The patient desired overall fullness and significant augmentation of her buttocks.
CORRECTION: The patient underwent the following procedures in 3 hours.
- Buttock Augmentation with round buttock implants in an intramuscular plane
- Liposuction of love handles and lower back
- Liposuction of saddlebags
- Lower buttocks fat transfer: The liposuctioned fat from these areas was then processed and injected as micrografts into the lower buttocks.
RESULTS: As can be seen from the before and after photos, liposuction of the patient’s saddlebags and lower back resulted in a more contoured and balanced torso. The process of liposuction is extremely important in removing the fatty tissue that surrounds the buttocks and adversely affects buttocks shape, width, and length. The buttocks implant placement created a perkier and rounder buttocks with significant enhancement of the buttocks enhanced projection and size. The round buttock implant expanded and refilled the empty buttock skin envelope, softening up many of the skin ripples.
