Also known as the Brazilian butt lift, a buttock augmentation procedure allows transwomen to obtain a feminine backside with an improved waist-to-hip ratio. As the name suggests, it is performed by adding more volume to the buttocks in two ways:
Though both options are almost equally effective in offering beautiful, natural results, using the fat readily removed from the waist during liposuction offers a safer enhancement as it is a natural element of the body.
However, it is not a viable option for very thin patients who do not have sufficient body fat available for transfer. For these patients, silicone implants are a safer option for augmenting buttocks. Dr. Sanghvi will be there to guide you to decide which type of augmentation would be best suited for your body.
It is usually performed under local anesthesia. In the fat transfer procedure, the surgeon first purifies the fat and prepares it for injection. A calculated amount of fat will be injected at specific locations around your buttocks until they reach your desired round shape.
If you need an implant procedure, the surgeon will first make small incisions around your buttocks, preferably such that the incision lines will hide in the skin folds. Based on your overall figure and desires, unique sizes of silicone implants will be inserted into your buttocks to give them their rounded appearance.
Dr. Sanghvi helps every transgender patient understand all the pros and cons of each procedure and guides them to choose the right implants that will offer the most accurate male-to-female gender change in India.
