Athletes and personal trainers are very common patients as there appearance is very important in their profession. Many of the people have a very low body fat percentage which overall is great however in certain areas such as the face and butt.
For these patients I typically do a combination of fat transfer and butt implants as they typically do not have enough fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift. When the implant is placed in a subfacial or submuscle position patients typically cannot see the edges of the implant.
The good news is that there are options that can give you a good result.
Please consult with your board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of butt augmentations.
This is a great question as many of my patients that are very thin also have a small buttock. The lateral hollowness is present in most patients that present for a butt augmentation. The hollowness starts where the gluteus maximus muscle ends.
The flatness, volume and lateral hollowness can all be improved with a silicone butt implant in patients that do not have enough fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift (fat transfer). The implant will help improve the overall shape of the buttock and hips.
I typically use a round silicone implant, as it will improve the lateral hollowness that most patients are concerned with in their buttock. The two implants that can improve this and still give you a natural appearance are the 379cc and 548cc round buttock implants. These two implants have a gradual slope that gives the butt projection, but a natural contour.
This range of implants gives patients an amazing augmentation, but still keeps people guessing if you had an augmentation or not.
Please consult with your board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of butt implant surgeries about your options.
