Houston Buttock AugmenationButtock augmentation is a surgical method designed to enlarge and shape the buttocks. If you're considering undergoing this procedure, it is important to know key safety precautions to take so you can get the results you want to achieve. If you live in the Houston area, Dr. Kutty can walk you through his process, to deliver your personalized procedure.

Start with finding a qualified plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In order to receive board certification, a surgeon must undergo extensive training in the specialty of plastic surgery, and complete rigorous examinations demonstrating mastery of the field. By choosing a plastic surgeon who is board-certified, you are investing in your overall health and you’ll be offered safe options that could yield great results. However, there are specific things you should look out for when considering this surgery.

You want to be extremely careful about other procedures for buttock augmentation. For example, silicone injections may cause serious, lifelong problems including infections, granulomas and visible deformities from scarring. This material cannot be removed, often causing patients to be hospitalized for further special care.

There are other materials to be wary of, one of which is called hydrogel. This material is not approved for use in the United States, and is almost exclusively injected by people who aren’t even physicians. Other injections have been reported using non-sterile materials such as Fix-A-Flat, cement and cooking oil. These kinds of procedures have been performed in places like basements and hotel rooms, causing disastrous complications. Do your research before you opt for any procedure.

Dr. Kutty is a board-certified plastic surgeon with the experience to deliver a personalized treatment plan. He understands that every patient is different, and therefore every procedure is unique.
