Considerations Before Getting a Butt Enhancement

iStock_000019812755XSmallHaving confidence whenever you enter or leave a room is more important than it has ever been before. Our accomplished staff, led by American Society of Plastic Surgeons member William C. Franckle, shapes, firms, and redefines posteriors for both men and women. Whether the goal is to look good facing away from a camera or just to boost confidence, we know how to help patients achieve the lusciousness they desire. However, before undergoing this procedure, it’s vital that patients consider a few things first. These considerations make butt enhancement a much smoother process.

You’ve Tried Your Hardest

If you have tried to diet and exercise your way to perkier buttocks, you may wonder why the rest of your body has firmed up while your buttocks remains flat. The answer is that while you can firm and reduce the size of that area, you can’t change the shape of it. That’s pretty much true of any body part. You can eat and exercise your way to a fit and chiseled body, but the basic shape remains the same. Furthermore, there are other serious considerations to take into account besides past efforts.

Overall Health

Any medical procedure works best when the patient is healthy and at a normal weight. This is especially true of patients undergoing elective procedures. Our office can work to give people the results they desire, but it is wise to make sure your health can withstand the process before making a decision. In addition to anesthesia, we will need to know about any heart issues, previous surgeries, and drug allergies. We must also stress that patients follow-up with the recommended care for the butt enhancement.

Realistic Goals

Patients must define what they hope to achieve with their surgery. In the office, we have a 3D imaging machine that helps provide an idea of what the result will look like. This machine has pleased many of our patients because it provides a realistic image without exaggerating the prospects. During this time, we can also look at what areas of the body we can reduce fat from, as that fat will be used to plump up and contour a shapely backside. Yes, that’s right: this surgery not only involves a butt enhancement but fat removal, too. It’s a win-win all around. Call today for a consultation to see if you are an ideal candidate for this surgery.


The Bottom Line: Need-to-Know Facts About 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.


Butt Enhancement Gaining in Popularity Thanks to Innovative Fat Transfer Technique

With voluptuous celebrities in the spotlight these days, it’s no wonder more people are realizing just how beautiful a full, curvaceous bottom can be. While slimmer, petite figures reigned supreme over the last several decades, it’s clear that a more prominent behind is an attractive and highly desirable asset now. The latest butt enhancement procedure offers individuals the opportunity to get the curves they’ve always wanted in a more natural way than ever before. This is known as a fat transfer.

In a fat transfer procedure, also known as fat grafting, the patient’s own fat cells are harvested from one area of the body and prepped to be injected into another. Popular harvest areas for butt enhancement include the inner thighs or abdomen area. These cells are then transferred to the buttocks, giving it extra volume and changing the shape.

The number of butt enhancement procedures completed via fat transfer increased about 16 percent in 2013. Nearly 10,000 procedures were completed in the U.S. last year, according the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Interestingly, the number of buttock implant procedures dropped during the same year, demonstrating a trend that patients prefer to choose their own cells for beauty enhancement practices when possible. The ASPS also published findings from a study last year in which 98 percent of the 58 women polled reported being “very satisfied” with the results of their butt enhancement surgery.

Why the attraction to using one’s own fat cells for a procedure like this? Doctors report that the chance of rejection or infection is lowered since the cells are not foreign to the patient’s body, like a silicone implant would be. This is one reason why major complications are rare. Furthermore, patients can often return to their normal routines within just a few days, unlike more dramatic procedures which require a week or more of recovery time.

Advancements like fat grafting make butt enhancement a viable option for many patients.


Women Satisfied With Butt Lift Results, According to Recent Survey

Women Satisfied With Butt Lift Results - Premier Plastic Surgery ArtsWomen who are considering getting plastic surgery to enhance their bottoms should pay attention to the results of a recent study from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). According to information presented at the ASPS annual meeting, women who have undergone buttock augmentation using their own fat are very satisfied and happy with the way the procedure turned out.

This procedure, commonly called a “butt lift,” involves liposuction of the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and infragluteal region, then injecting that fat into the woman’s buttocks. Removing fat from the above areas and injecting them into the buttocks can help a women reduce fat in problem areas and can create a fuller backside.

In the survey, 58 women who underwent the procedure evaluated before and after photos of themselves to rate their satisfaction with the procedure. The surgical teams that performed the butt lifts also evaluated the photos to determine the quality of the their work, and identify areas of potential improvement. Among the patients, the results were overwhelmingly positive. 57 of the 58 women reported being “very satisfied” with the results.

This high level of satisfaction may be able to help create awareness about the importance of getting a butt lift from a board certified cosmetic surgeon. Many women want fuller bottoms, which has led to an increase in illegal procedures performed in unsafe conditions or unsterilized operating rooms. For this reason, organizations such as the ASPS have been working hard to emphasize the importance of consulting with only qualified plastic surgeons. The satisfaction reported by the women in the survey will dramatically help spread this message, because the public will be able to see that a properly performed butt lift has a greater chance of producing excellent results.
