Butt augmentation has quickly become one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the United States. It’s an area of the body that’s an essential part of your overall figure. You want your backside to look just as good as your front, giving you the body shape you’ve worked hard to achieve. However, it’s difficult to tone this area of the body, and so many women come to our office for buttock augmentation. Our board-certified plastic surgeon uses a special technique to improve the size and shape of your buttocks, known as Butt Contouring or a Butt Lift. This procedure doesn’t involve implants like other methods. One of the most well-known options for enhancing your backside is the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) which uses your fatty tissues from other areas of your body to improve the size and shape of your buttocks.
If you’re unhappy with the shape of your buttocks, schedule a consultation with Dr. Chiaramonte in Maryland today at (301) 567-6767 to see if you’re a candidate for a butt lift. Bella Cosmetic Surgery offers plastic surgery and skin care treatment to clients in Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland.
The Ideal Candidate for Butt Contouring
Most people who are unhappy with the shape and size of their bottom are good candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift. However, similar to other plastic surgeries, it’s important for you to meet these criteria:
- You’re in good overall health.
- You’re at or near your goal weight.
- You’re not a smoker or are willing to obtain from smoking for up to six weeks before and after your procedure.
- You have realistic expectations for your results.
The Brazilian Butt Lift also requires sufficient fat from another area of your body, which is usually taken from the thighs or abdomen. Butt contouring yields the best results for individuals with oversized or oddly shaped buttocks, or those with an angular or “pear-shaped” figure that you consider unappealing.
If you don't have sufficent excess fat in a donor region to perform the fat transfer, then the Sculptra butt lift may be an excellent alternative to achieve your goals.
Buttock Augmentation Surgery
If you’re minimizing the shape of your backside, our board-certified plastic surgeon will reduce the size via liposuction and redistribute the remaining fat to develop a firm, sculpted look. To enhance your buttock size, Dr. Chiaramonte will harvest the fat as mentioned above, and inject the fat cells into the area for optimal butt contouring. He will distribute the fat evenly to provide a well-proportioned look. This fat transfer technique ensures natural looking results, and there are fewer risks because your body readily accepts its fat cells.
After Your Butt Lift Surgery
You will need at least 14 days of minimal activity after your butt lift surgery. During this period, you should feel minimal discomfort, which can be alleviated by over-the-counter medication. After that time, you should be able to sit on your newly-shaped posterior without issue. You can resume normal activities after two weeks.
Some of our patients do one or more plastic surgeries in conjunction with the Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Chiaramonte developed the Bella Body Lift which combines a tummy tuck with liposuction contouring—this procedure combined with the BBL can transform your midsection into the hourglass shape many individuals want. You can also benefit from a breast lift or another form of breast surgery at the same time.
