In addition to the breasts, the buttocks are a symbol of feminine sensuality, and a common focus of attention. When you are unhappy with the shape and tone of your booty, buttocks augmentation may be a good option to achieve a shapelier, uplifted butt, and that hourglass figure you envy. Butt augmentation can enhance flat buttocks. Each patient receives a customized procedure based on his or her needs, goals and desires.
What is buttock augmentation?
Butt augmentation is the enhancement of the buttocks with either an implant or fat transfer. Augmentation with fat transfer is called a Brazilian Butt Lift. The goal is to improve the contour, size and shape of the buttocks. Butt augmentation increases fullness, plumpness, tone and projection of the rear to balance the figure, and enhance confidence and self-image. A butt lift can improve the shape and tone of the tissue, and if needed, the surgical removal of excess skin and fat.
What are buttock implants?
A buttock implant is made of medical grade soft silicone.
What is fat grafting?
Fat grafting is a procedure that involves removing fat from one area of the body, and transferring it into the tissues in the buttocks.
Dr. Gupta will conduct an examination, and make his recommendations based on your desires and surgical goals. The choice of implant or fat grafting will be determined with you based on the size and shape of your buttocks, the amount of body fat available for liposuction, your goals and activity level, the quality and elasticity of your skin, and how much extra skin may you have.
Who is a good candidate?
Butt augmentation is available for both men and women who have body image concerns such as a small, flat or sagging buttock, imbalances and asymmetries. Good candidates are people who are physically healthy, have realistic expectations, and do not smoke.
Dr. Gupta will discuss with the type of augmentation you desire, where you prefer incisions be made, and where he thinks would be the best for your individual needs and desires. He may decide to use both an implant and fat augmentation. The procedure is the same for men and women.
What is the buttocks implant procedure?
Under either IV sedation or general anesthesia, an incision will be made in the natural buttocks creases. Dr. Gupta will create a pocket inside the gluteal muscle, either above the muscle or under the muscle. Dr. Gupta prefers placing the implant inside the muscle as it safer, and provides a more natural-looking and longer-lasting result. He will then place the specially made implant and close the incision. He will use layered sutures to reduce stress on the incision and create only minimal scarring. Results will be immediately visible. But, there will be swelling that will resolve.
What is the fat transfer procedure?
Under either IV sedation or general anesthesia, Dr. Gupta will use tumescent liposuction to harvest the fat to be transferred. Then the fat is purified and prepared for injection using either the PureGraft or Revolve system, which maximizes fat cell survival for long – lasting results. Dr. Gupta will inject small amounts of the fat all over the buttocks, concentrating on the upper quadrant to give the buttocks a lift. The results will be visible immediately! However, he will over fill to allow for some fat absorption, which is normal. This procedure offers a natural look and feel. However, as you gain and lose weight the results may change.
An added benefit is that the fat can be harvested from the waist or abdomen, or thighs and the area can be sculpted for better contours. Other body shaping procedures can be combined for a complete body transformation.
It can take up to a year to see your final results from the fat transfer procedure, and results can last for decades.
