The Bottom Line: Need-to-Know Facts About Buttock Augmentation

remier plastic surgery - buttock augmentation

What do you know about buttock augmentation?

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of buttock augmentations is up 86 percent since 2013. Inspired by curvaceous stars like Kim Kardashian, more and more people are adding extra cushion to their backsides. When they do, the Brazilian butt lift is their method of choice.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian butt lift is designed to change a backside that is flat, saggy, or misshapen, one that does not match the rest of a patient’s form. Because most of us have a little extra fat somewhere on our bodies, fat grafting is a relatively safe, fast, and effective technique to move it from one place to another. Fat grafting works by gently removing fat from one area of the body to be placed in another. By injecting your own fat directly into your derriere, this type of buttock augmentation may result in immediate, lasting results. With fewer complications than silicone buttock implants, it is no surprise that the number of these surgeries has surged in recent years.

How Does It Work?

Buttock implants involve saline or silicone inserts, stitches, and a lengthy recovery time, but a Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction techniques, lowering the risk of complications and shortening the recovery time dramatically. Fat is collected from another area of the body, most commonly the stomach, thighs, and just above the buttocks. Removal of fat from these nearby areas also serves to highlight the volume added by the procedure. Throughout the process of the fat transfer, care is taken to preserve symmetry so that a similar amount of fat is taken from both sides and reinserted evenly across both buttocks.

What are the Common Misconceptions?

While it is true that the Brazilian butt lift removes fat from certain areas to be used for the transfer, the procedure is not designed for weight loss. The removed fat is, after all, injected back into your body. A buttock augmentation can, however, enhance the contours of your body. As such, our patients have been satisfied with their results.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Butt Lift?

Many existing diet and exercise programs can help you lose weight, but many of us discover that significant weight loss also means a loss of curves. A butt lift can make a subtle but significant improvement in the appearance of a male or female figure. For anyone looking to get a boost, it’s worth scheduling a consultation with Dr. Franckle to learn more. Buttock augmentation can give you the confidence to get your butt back in the game.
