Some people want a certain "look" for their butts. People who are trying to achieve a certain shape and firmness to their butts and have failed to achieve their goal with a combination of exercise or dieting come to us for advice.
There are both surgical and nonsurgical options.
Most commonly people seek a rounder and fuller butt with greater definition. A "brazilian butt lift" (BBL) type procedure has worked well for many patients. A BBL is designed to give a person a fuller, lifted and more shapely butt. The body’s contour around the butt is dramatically improved by the liposuction necessary to get the fat that is transferred into the buttock area. Liposuction is performed around the waist and in the thighs below the buttock to create a better defined butt. The fat removed is transferred to the butt giving it a firmer more rounded appearance. The combination of liposuction sculpturing the area around the butt and the fat being transferred to the butt is the key to getting the best results.
Some people have sagging butts. A "butt lift" is used in these cases when you have sagging skin in the butt and or hip areas. It is the butt version of a "tummy tuck". Instead of pulling the skin down as we do in a tummy tuck, the butt is pulled up and as much sagging skin as possible is removed.
In younger patients seeking greater fullness there are nonsurgical options using injectables to stimulate your own collagen formation to shape and increase the firmness of the butt. In some cases special surgical suture threads can be used to achieve small lifts without visible scars.
We have many innovative techniques at our disposable. Based upon our experience and training we are able to determine what works best for any given patient.
