The beauty market is saturated with creams, lotions and pills designed for virtually everything. There are products intended to lengthen eyelashes, smooth wrinkles, thicken hair and tighten skin. But what about creams and pills that claim to add volume to the buttocks? Do they do what they claim to? San Diego plastic surgeon Dr. Carlos Chacon of Divino Plastic Surgery reveals the truth in this blog post.
Don’t Believe Infomercial and Internet Lies
Despite what late-night infomercials or the Internet may tell you, there is no topical cream or lotion or pill that can make the buttocks bigger. These methods cannot alter the buttock tissue, fat or skin. Save your money for a solution that truly works.
Exercising to strengthen the gluteus muscle can increase the size of the buttocks, but the results may be unpredictable and possibly negligible. Discontinuing exercise or losing a large amount of weight would deflate or flatten the buttocks.
There are only two ways to dramatically increase the size of the buttocks: through the placement of an artificial implant or the use of fat grafting. The latter buttock enhancement method involves removing unwanted fat from another area of the body (e.g., the abdomen or thighs), processing it and injecting it into the buttocks to add shape and volume. Buttock fat grafting, known by some as Brazilian Butt Lift, can be further accentuated by reducing fat around the waist, lower back and outer thighs. Reducing the size of the waist and increasing the size of the buttocks creates an exaggerated hourglass shape.
Experience Is Key
There are many news stories of individuals that pursued surgery to enhance their buttocks, but risked their life because they trusted the wrong doctor (or someone simply claiming to be a doctor). Black market buttock injections have made mainstream news for causing serious health complications to the patient: infection, scarring and even death.
Choosing a qualified plastic surgeon to perform the operation is critical to both the results of the procedure and the patient’s health and safety. A plastic surgeon with the proper combination of training and experience can do the job safely and without risking the patient’s health. Also, the right plastic surgeon stays up to date with all advances in buttock augmentation and Brazilian Butt Lift to ensure the results look beautiful and natural.
