3 Myths About Buttocks Augmentation for Body Feminization

Plastic,Surgery,Concept.,Butt,Lift,And,Anti,Cellulite,Woman,Body Buttocks augmentation is a popular procedure for enhancing the size and shape of the buttocks. Those transitioning from male to female opt for this procedure to achieve a curvier figure, often associated with a feminine appearance.

However, there are some common misconceptions surrounding buttocks augmentation that may be preventing patients from receiving this procedure.

Myth #1: Buttocks augmentation Is Unsafe

When performed by skilled surgeons experienced in male-to-female transition (MTF) procedures, buttocks augmentation is highly safe and effective. We ensure the safety of our patients through:

  • Pre-Operative Examinations: Our patients receive a thorough evaluation of their complete medical history, including hormone therapy status, to ensure suitability for the procedure.
  • Skilled Surgeons: Our board-certified plastic surgeons have the required knowledge and specialized skills to perform the procedure with minimal risk.
  • Focus on Transgender Care: Our surgeons specialize in and understand the unique anatomical considerations of our transgender patients and customize their procedures accordingly.

Myth 2: Recovery times are longer for MTF Transitions

Recovery time is no longer for gender-affirming procedures than other surgeries. Here are common post-procedure expectations:

  • Initial Recovery: Most patients are released to go home the same or the following day. Medication and rest are essential for managing discomfort.
  • Restrictions: Patients are advised to avoid heavy lifting, extended sitting, or strenuous activity for several weeks.
  • Total Recovery: A complete recovery requires several weeks, although most patients can resume lighter activities after just one week.
  • Post-Operative Care: We provide personalized aftercare instructions, pain management strategies, and regular follow-up visits to monitor our patients’ full recovery.

Myth 3: Buttocks Augmentation Does Not Appear Natural

Our surgeons at Del Rey Face have the expertise and experience to achieve a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing result through:

  • Skilled Sculpting: Our surgeons use skills and artistry to sculpt and contour the buttocks for the perfect shape to suit your body.
