Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful holiday celebration. With the start of a new year comes a time to reflect as we’re provided a clean start to the next chapter. We can look back on the past year and learn from what we know now. It’s interesting to see what was really popular or not so hot and note how those trends impacted the plastic surgery industry. In exploring trends across mainstream media, we noted the prevalence of coverage focusing on women’s rear ends. It seems obvious that society has come to favor a larger, curvier back side, and we see that more so in statistics provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Procedures related to butts, including buttock augmentations and buttock lifts, were the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the United States in 2015, and we look forward to seeing how that growth continued with the strong media attention of 2016. To learn more about the popular procedure, we’ve got some brief information on the backside-related procedures we offer.

 

Buttock augmentation, technically named gluteoplasty, is a body contouring procedure performed to provide additional fullness and definition to your buttocks region. Separately, a butt lift procedure can be utilized to lift a drooping buttock, typically without any augmentation. We can perform a combination of the two, known as a Brazilian butt lift, in order to deliver beautiful, natural looking results.

 

A Brazilian butt lift procedure involves extracting fat cells from a donor site using liposuction. Common donor sites include the hips, thighs, abdomen, and lower back. These fat cells are injected into the gluteal muscles to promote a more defined, contoured appearance. During your first consultation, we can discuss the different procedure options and decide the right combination for your unique anatomy and aesthetic desires. In addition to the physical changes, buttock augmentation and lift procedures can have a positive effect on a person’s body image, increasing confidence and self-esteem.

 

Following your surgery with us, any visible bruising and swelling will fade as you heal. We’ll prescribe medications to help control any pain you may be experiencing and make you more comfortable during your recovery period. You will be able to walk normally, but we recommend avoiding strenuous activities for four weeks to ensure proper healing and recovery.
