Achieve Perky, Voluptuous Contours with a Buttock Augmentation
If you want to enlarge or reshape your buttocks, and you have discovered that you cannot do so through diet or exercise alone, a buttock augmentation, performed by Dr. Greenberg in Long Island, NY, Manhattan, NY, and Boca Raton, FL may be the solution for you.
A buttock augmentation contours the buttocks to compensate for low levels of fat. Women and men who enlarge their bottoms can enjoy more perky and voluptuous profiles. Augmentation may be achieved through injections of the patient’s own body fat.
Candidates for Buttock Augmentation
Buttock augmentation can enhance natural curves for patients who are unhappy with the shape of their buttocks. It can also add volume and roundness to a flat or small butt for patients seeking a more balanced profile.
Body-builders may seek buttock augmentation if they are unable to develop gluteal muscles in proportion with the rest of their bodies.
Generally, if you are looking for a fuller, curvier butt, buttock augmentation may be for you.
Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer (“Brazilian Butt Lift”)
Buttock augmentation with fat transfer, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, involves two steps:
First, the patient’s own fat is gathered through liposuction. The most popular areas for liposuction prior to buttock augmentation are the lower back, waist, flanks (love handles), thighs, and stomach. This not only provides the material for buttock enhancement, it also contours the areas around the butt for a more dramatic result.
In the second step, the donor fat is placed in the buttocks by means of tiny injections at different depths to ensure an even, attractive augmentation. This method of fat injection delivers a shapely contour. Special focus is placed upon the upper buttocks so that the rear appears youthful and naturally lifted.
What to Expect During Recovery
During recovery, compression garments may be worn to reduce swelling. Patients may experience some pain or discomfort, bruising, and swelling after the procedure.
Most patients return to work a few days after their buttock augmentation and are able to resume all normal activities within four weeks. Swelling typically dissipates by the sixth week.
