LOS ANGELES, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The media's portrayal of the stereotypical blonde plastic surgery patient looking for a breast augmentation in Beverly Hills is long outdated. Men and women of all backgrounds have found great confidence-boosting results after working with a plastic surgeon. In fact, Beverly Hills Physicians—a leading medical network in Southern California with an impressive gallery of plastic surgery before and after pictures and testimonials—has seen one notable trend recently: male buttocks augmentations.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the percentage of men undergoing cosmetic buttock operations rose from 2.2 percent out of total butt procedures to 6.2 percent between 1997 and 2012. Something that might account for this trend is the greater realization that adding significant bulk to the posterior for some men is practically impossible through exercise alone. Much like the notorious calf implant guy from MTV's True Life: I Want the Perfect Body who couldn't add volume to his calves no matter how hard he exercised, many men will seek butt augmentation surgery after years of attempting to perk up their posteriors by working out. Fortunately, the board certified plastic surgeons at Beverly Hills Physicians offer a number of options for men seeking fuller buttocks.
Traditionally, plastic surgery on the buttocks involves the placement of a hard silicone implant that mimics the feel and look of a muscular, much more proportionate rear end. However, a recent trend in plastic surgery (as the Beverly Hills Physicians surgeons can corroborate) has been a move away from silicone towards a fat transfer. In this procedure, fat is liposuctioned from another area of the body, usually the flanks or abdomen, and then made ready for injection into the buttocks. The doctor then injects it into the patient, keeping symmetry, size, and masculine shape in mind.
Beverly Hills Physicians will often recommend a fat transfer procedure over silicone implants for a few reasons. Chiefly, the procedure offers a much more natural feeling and looking result for the patient. Furthermore, because fat is removed from other parts of the body, the operation offers more of a dramatic shift in the patient's overall figure. The fat can be removed from the thighs, abdomen, lower back, or other area, which will emphasize the new, larger buttocks. Finally, some patients might not want a foreign object permanently inserted into their body, despite scientific studies attesting to the safety of silicone implants.
Nonetheless, silicone might be preferable for certain patients. If the patient doesn't have much fat to transfer, then it could be the better option. Implants are also a little more predictable in terms of results, as the body doesn't keep all of the fat transferred to the buttocks. Regardless, it's still a case-by-case decision. The team at Beverly Hills Physicians offers a completely free initial consultation on these procedures and can help each patient decide which course of action is most appropriate and attractive for their bodies.
