Buttock augmentation candidates
Buttock augmentation is a very personal procedure and you should do it for yourself, not for someone else. Dr. Shatkin will help you decide on the shape and volume for recontouring the buttock.
You may be a good candidate for buttock augmentation if:
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
- You are bothered by the feeling that your buttock is too small
- You are unhappy with the roundness or general shape of your buttock
- Your buttock is asymmetrical
Buttock augmentation recovery
Dr. Shatkin and his team will instruct you to avoid prolonged sitting for about two weeks, at which point the fat cells have begun to regain their circulation. This is very important because prolonged sitting will damage the fat and limit viability of the fat cells.
You will also be encouraged to sleep face down or on your side. When you do have to sit, you will have to use a pillow or cushion placed behind the legs (hamstring muscles) to help raise the buttock avoiding pressure onto the fat grafts.
You will also be provided with a support garment that will apply even compression to the areas that were treated with liposuction. In addition, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid.
You will be given specific instructions from Dr. Shatkin and his staff.
It may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate. As it does, your new contours and enhanced self-image should continue to develop.
Following Dr. Shatkin's instructions is the key to the success of your surgery. It's important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing.
