More and more patients want to change the shape and size of their buttocks to better fit into clothes and achieve a curvier look. There are many fitness programs and undergarments that focus on enhancing the shape and size of the butt. However, sometimes even diet and exercise can’t help patients obtain their desired look. Buttock augmentation in Atlanta, GA has become increasingly popular. Also known as a fat transfer or Brazilian butt lift, this cosmetic procedure harvests the fat from other areas of the body and then re-injected into the buttocks. Dr. David Whiteman uses this technique because it yields the most natural-looking results.
During the procedure, Dr. Whiteman uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas such as the lower back, stomach, or hips. Next, the fat is purified and re-injected into the necessary sites on the buttocks. Unlike other buttock enhancement surgeries such as a butt lift or butt implants, Brazilian butt lifts solely uses fat transfer to enhance the butt without repositioning muscles. By using the patient’s own fat, there are fewer risks of complications. Also, patients can benefit from combining liposuction for other areas with buttock enhancement so they can achieve a more proportional result.
Both men and women can undergo buttock augmentation if they are unsatisfied with the appearance of their butt. However, patients must have an adequate amount of fat in other areas so it can be safely transferred to the buttocks. For patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with sagging skin, Dr. Whiteman may recommend post bariatric procedures to remove sagging skin and eliminate isolated fat deposits.
Since the amount of fat needed and the number of transfer sites varies, not every patient is a candidate for Brazilian butt lift. It is very important to discuss aesthetic goals with a board certified plastic surgeon before surgery so each patient can choose the proper procedure.
