Factors that affect the gluteal shape
It can be extremely difficult to maintain that elusive and ideal gluteal shape, especially with so many factors that negatively affect it. As you age, time has a profoundly negative impact on the shape of your buttocks. Genetics can also play a significant role in the way your buttocks change. Finally, diet and exercise can have a noticeable effect.
Age is likely to have the greatest effect on the appearance of your buttocks. Once you reach age 20, the shape of your buttocks is usually fully formed and has a lot of healthy fat there. Your buttocks can be firm and tall, even if you are not physically active and lead a sedentary lifestyle.
Unfortunately for most women, things start going downhill once they reach their 30s, or even before that date if you get pregnant. Muscle mass and tone, changing cells and skin elasticity begin to decrease. These decreases contribute to sagging and wrinkles.
The shape of your buttocks is primarily directed by your genes. Their genetic makeup determines how the muscle groups of their buttocks are placed and contoured, as well as the width and overall structure of the pelvic bones that support them.
Your genes also dictate how your body stores and distributes your fat. Exercise can only change the shape of your buttocks to a certain extent.
Diet and exercise
Age and genetics are no reason to neglect diet and exercise. A strong dedication to exercise can help build the muscle mass of your buttocks, toning them in a more attractive way.
A healthy exercise routine can also help your buttocks fight changes that age and severity. Starting an early-life exercise routine can help preserve and prolong the buttocks you had in your 20s and delay sagging.
Buttock enlargement techniques
What happens during a particular buttock lift depends on the patient and its aesthetic goal. Sagging usually involves removing the skin, liposuction can be performed to sculpt the buttocks, and implants can be used to add volume.
When implants are used, the procedure is known as a buttock lift with implants or gluteoplasty.
Increased buttocks without implants
In this procedure, the Plastic Surgeon in Bogotá Dr. Guevara will make a small incision in your buttocks to remove the extra thin layers of fat, tissue and skin. The sutures can be placed deep inside the muscle and tissue to lift and maintain the new shape of your buttocks in the desired position.
There are four main types of buttock lifts, each capable of sculpting the shape of the buttocks. They are differentiated by the type of incision made by the Plastic Surgeon in Bogota to correct sagging:
An upper buttock enlargement focuses on the contours of the top of your buttocks. The incision is made through the curve of the top of your buttocks, through which the underlying tissue can be removed with liposuction.
If your problem is mild to moderate sagging, your surgeon may remove tissue from the bottom of your buttocks. This helps to reposition the fat in the lower gluteal area and lifts the buttock crease at the base of the buttocks.
A lateral incision can be made on each side of each buttock to treat the slight sinking of the hips and the outer edges of your buttocks. This method limits scars.
A “butterfly” buttock lift uses an incision made from the center crease and continues upwards. This technique is good for tightening the hanging tissue, but usually does not lift the buttock shape.
Increased buttocks with implants
You can choose to include implants in your gluteoplasty surgery in Bogota if you have flat or poorly defined buttocks, especially if you have very little subcutaneous fat. With this procedure, the implants are inserted through a hidden incision in the central crease of the buttocks.
There are three main types of implants available:
Sterile saline solution implants
They are considered the safest option because in the unlikely event of a rupture, your body will absorb the water harmlessly. On the other hand, they are not popular because they can break when punctured abruptly or with a strong impact, as a result of a fall. They are also criticized for not feeling as natural as other options, as they tend to be firmer to the touch.
Cohesive gel implants are another option and are similar to breast implants. However, surgeons have started to move away from this type of implant, due to the amount of stress your body suffers, even in normal daily activities.The chances of a silicone gel implant breaking increase under the stress of your body’s weight.
Solid silicone implants
They are the most popular type of buttock implants used today. These implants are different from breast implants because they are completely solid but still flexible, with a much more suitable feel and texture for their application. They come in a variety of shapes or can even be cut to size to suit you. And due to to their solid design, they can’t break.
