Butt Enhancement Fact vs. Fantasy

Gluteus to the Maximus is about butt enhancement -- quite simply. Speaking freely, it is primarily women who are interested in enhancing their flat, mushy, spreading or sagging booties. Gluteus to the Maximus author, Nick Nilsson, is very experienced with the physiology and mechanics of butt building.

There are several accepted "medically-related" techniques such as butt enhancement creams, pills, injections and surgery. Butt enhancing underwear (padded panties), and butt-lifting underwear are the fake butt enhancement tools that are becoming less stigmatizing by the day. Finally, there is natural butt enhancement. Natural enhancement involves well-designed exercise and nutrition routines that represent a serious way of looking after the long-term appearance of your rear end. Don't deceive yourself! Your butt is not going to be 23 forever. Even after you make your butt bigger using whatever method you choose, you still need to work to keep it sitting up high, and round, and firm, because gravity will be working daily to pull it to the floor. Gravity loves a sagging butt.

Let's take a look at each of these enhancement tactics...

Butt Enhancement Creams

Here is some of the language we found in doing some basic online research on butt enhancement creams. Most of it comes from the manufacturers of the products and their affiliate sales forces:

"The cream can be used more than twice daily for faster and more dramatic results."

"...a component that stimulates fat-storage cells (adipose) to differentiate, proliferate, and gain volume."

"take a small amount into your hands. 2. Rub and gently massage onto both buttocks. 3. Let the cream absorb quickly ...feel the tingle and know it's working."

"..[product name] is clinically proven to increase the size and count of fatty cells in the buttocks." We're looking for those clinical studies.

"...When you purchase this new [other product name], you will also gain a free guide to bigger buttocks exercises that actually work." Is it the cream, or the exercises that are getting the results?

You can judge for yourself whether this sounds like so much foolishness.

Butt Enhancement Pills

We understand the role of supplements in a fitness routine; however, it seems that pills are being marketed as a magical route to a big butt. Again, we could not uncover any clinical studies that provide evidence of the effectiveness of pills alone. Here is some of what is being said.

"...[product one] and [product two] are known to have potent phytoestrogens that mimic the effects of estrogen in the human body -- thus increasing hip size and fat storage on the buttocks."

"...from a scientific stand point, we cannot know if the pills really work. It seems as though a pill could also have certain side effects from ingesting them into your body..."

"...the clinical trials on select individuals showed a huge increase of 12% in size after 28 days."

"...save your money, no creams, lotions, pills, saves, or oils will make you buttocks look bigger."

"...[product three] claims up to an 18% size increase ...but they do recommend that you use it for at least 6 months for best results." Really?

and finally,

"...bovine ovary works by stimulating your body to release hormones, causing a sort of second puberty and allowing your breasts and buttocks to grow curvier."

Could it be that butt enhancement pills are just another one of the many insulting attempts to exploit women economically?

Butt Enhancement Injections vs. Butt-Lifting Surgery

Also known as the Brazilian butt lift, the butt enhancement injection procedure involves taking fat from a patient's body and using it to augment the shape of their buttocks.

The fat is typically taken from the hips and abdomen, as well as the flanks and lower back, and it must first be purified before it is injected into the buttocks. Considering the fact that the fat must be inserted at different depths to ensure the maximum absorption rate, the Brazilian butt lift requires a number of injections to deliver the required results.

Butt Enhancement Surgery involves lifting the gluteus maximus and inserting implants into the resulting pocket. Typically crafted out of soft but solid silicone, the implants are adjusted to ensure the best aesthetic results before the incision is sewn.

One's choice of butt augmentation procedure will depend on a number of factors, the most prominent of which include the following:

  • Price

    Butt augmentation injections are considerably more expensive than their surgical counterparts, often priced at an impressive $18,000, this as opposed to the $13,000 you might have to pay to acquire butt augmentation surgery.

    The costly nature of injections emanates from the liposuction techniques that must first be deployed to acquire the fat that will be injected into the buttocks. In both cases, the cost will vary depending on factors like the geographic area and the surgeon chosen.

  • Effectiveness

    Of these two procedures, only the butt lift is permanent, though patients must wait for as long as three months to acquire the final results of the injections. It takes some time to determine the amount of fat that has been reabsorbed by the body.

  • Safety

    Both procedures do not differ that drastically with regards to side effects. As with many cosmetic procedures, patients stand the risk of attracting infections, scarring, bleeding and even nerve damage. There are significant chances of one's implants slipping after the surgical approach while patients of the butt lift should worry about the possibility of the body reabsorbing the inserted fat.

It should be noted that recovery from augmentation injections is not only quicker (patients can return to work within a week) but the four-week long recovery process for the surgical procedure is quite painful.

Your choice of butt augmentation procedure will ultimately depend on your objectives for your body as well as your financial status. While implants tend to deliver larger behinds, most people typically utilize injections to achieve perkier butts.

Butt Shaping Underwear

Fake butt products have their place. Particularly outside of possible intimate situations. Never mislead a prospective sexual partner into believing you have a big, firm, round butt -- only to disappoint that person severely when s/he sees that flat-as-a-pancake behind without any clothes and your fake, silicone buttock enhancing shapewear lying on the floor next to the bed.

It's probably fine to let your friends, coworkers and clients believe that you have a nice firm butt -- as long as they'll never be in a position to disprove it. The point is to use butt-shaping underwear with caution.
