Buttock augmentation or Brazilian butt lift procedure can be achieved through either the use of implants or through transferring your existing fat, or sometimes a combination of both. The surgeon may choose between a variety of incision patterns and techniques.
The appropriate technique for you will be determined based on:
Butt size and shape
The amount of fat you have on your body that is available for use through liposuction
Your goals and activity level
Skin quality and elasticity as well as the amount of extra skin
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedures. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you. No matter which type of buttock augmentation procedure you have, anesthesia will be used to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Dr. Rodriguez will sit with you and discuss all procedure and answer any concern you might have.
What is a Buttock Augmentation?
Buttock augmentation surgery is a body contouring procedure designed to reshape sagging buttocks or add volume to a flat behind. Buttock augmentation is done in one of two ways: either fat is taken from somewhere else in the body and injected into the buttocks (a “Brazilian butt lift”), or soft silicone implants are surgically inserted in the buttocks to add volume and create the desired shape. Buttock augmentation can also be combined with a buttock lift.
Of the two methods, the Brazilian butt lift is normally preferred, mainly because the surgery itself is much less invasive, and therefore the recovery time is shorter and less difficult. It also has the advantage of being completely natural. If there are areas of excess fat on a patient’s body, a Brazilian butt lift has the added benefit of slimming those areas down when collecting fat to expand the buttocks.
Buttock Augmentation / Brazilian Butt Lift
A well-rounded, shapely derriere is an enduring symbol of attractiveness. Due to genetics, however, some people may not be able to achieve the shape they want no matter how much exercise they do. A square or flat bottom can deter people from wearing tight clothing with confidence. A buttock augmentation procedure can be the answer.
Time and gravity are also the enemies of a firm backside. A buttock augmentation can help turn back the clock and recapture a more youthful shape.
