How does buttock augmentation work? 

Buttock augmentation can be carried out in two different ways; surgical way (implants) or fat or silicone injection.

  • Both ways start with the anesthesia stage. Typically, general anesthesia is administered to the patient, so he will feel no pain during the operation.

  • Finally, the incisions are closed by dissolved sutures.
