Buttock Enhancement – Long Lasting Results

Buttock Enhancement – Long Lasting Results

body (8)Recent advancements in surgery have made buttocks enhancement very popular. The most common technique is direct transfer of the patient’s own fatty tissue by injection. Fat is harvested from donor areas on the body that are out of contour, most commonly the abdomen or areas over the greater trochanters (saddle bags). That fat can then be concentrated and injected into the buttocks area to create a shapely appearance.

In recent years, buttocks enhancements have been embraced by celebrities and beauty conscious people in foreign countries, most notably Brazil. With the results of fat transfer techniques becoming more dependable, these long-lastingbuttocks enhancement procedures will only continue to increase in popularity.

For the patient desiring dramatic changes in buttocks size and shape, there are a variety of buttock implant sizes available. These implants can be placed either beneath the dense tissue called the “fascia” over the muscle of the gluteal region. The results will improve the appearance of the buttocks by enhancing shape and contour. Possible complications although rare, are similar to that for breast implants, where significant scarring around the implant can occur or in worst case scenario, the implant must be removed due to bacterial contamination.

In some patients, especially those with massive weight loss due to bariatric surgery, it may be possible to enhance the buttocks through a “flap” approach – where harvested fat tissues from the lower back and upper buttocks are used to add contour and volume to the lower regions of the gluteals. These flaps both lift and enhance shape with long-lasting results.

In conclusion, buttocks enhancement is a popular and much-performed procedure. So no matter what technique is chosen, autologous fat transfer, implants or flaps, you can be assured predictable results.

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???
