Reasons for Buttock Augmentation Reversal

Here are some of the most common reasons people choose to reverse their buttock augmentation:

Health Risks

There are several health risks associated with buttock augmentation procedures. One of the most significant risks is the possibility of infection. Infection can occur at the incision site or implant, leading to severe complications. Other potential risks include nerve damage, bleeding, and scarring.

Cosmetic Issues

While buttock augmentation can enhance the appearance of the buttocks, it can also create cosmetic issues that some people find undesirable. For example, the implants may shift or become misaligned, causing an uneven or lumpy appearance. Additionally, the implants may be too large or too small, leading to an unbalanced or disproportionate look. For patients who previously underwent BBL procedures—
fat grafting to the buttocks—the injected fat may lead to a lumpy or uneven 
appearance, as well as a disproportionate silhouette. 

Personal Choice

Ultimately, the decision to reverse a buttock augmentation procedure is personal. Some people may feel that the results no longer fit their aesthetic goals or lifestyle, while others may experience discomfort or pain due to the implants. 

Buttock Augmentation Reversal Procedures

Surgical procedures are typically recommended for patients who have had significant buttock augmentation and want to reverse the procedure altogether. There are a variety of surgical procedures which may be necessary to reverse your buttock augmentation:

  • A buttock lift involves removing excess skin and fat from the buttocks. The surgeon will make incisions in the buttocks and remove the excess tissue. The remaining tissue will then be lifted and tightened, giving the buttocks a more natural appearance.
  • Liposuction involves removing excess fat from the buttocks and is occasionally paired with a buttock lift. The surgeon will make small incisions in the buttocks and use a liposuction cannula device to remove the fat.

Non-surgical procedures are less invasive and require little to no recovery time, typically recommended for patients with minimal buttock augmentation. The following are some of the most common non-surgical procedures for buttock augmentation reversal:

  • Buttock massage breaks up scar tissue and improves circulation. It can help to reduce the appearance of buttock implants and give the buttocks a more natural appearance.
  • Buttock filler removal involves injecting a solution into the buttock filler to dissolve it. The solution breaks down the filler, allowing the body to absorb it over time.

Recovery and Aftercare

After your buttock augmentation reversal surgery, taking good care of yourself is essential to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery. Here are some things to remember:

  • You may experience some pain, swelling, and bruising, which is normal and can be managed with pain medication
  • It is essential to rest and avoid any strenuous activity for the first few days after surgery
  • You should avoid sitting or lying on your back and instead lie on your stomach or side
  • You may need to use a special cushion to prevent putting pressure on the surgical area
  • You may experience some drainage from the incision site, which is normal-make sure to keep the area clean and dry to prevent infection
  • We may recommend using compression garments or bandages to help reduce swelling
