A procedure that has recently gained tremendous popularity, not just at our Atlanta office, but nationwide, is the Buttock Augmentation, or Brazilian Butt Lift. Also known as fat transfer, the Buttock Augmentation is a shape-modifying procedure that uses fat injections to enhance the shape of your buttocks. Usually, the injections consist of your own fat from other areas harvested through liposuction around the buttocks, stomach, or elsewhere.
This fat is run through a purifying process before it is re-injected into the necessary sites on your buttocks. The number of purified fat injections needed to attain your desired result may vary greatly from person to person based on the amount of fat needed, the number of sites where injections are desired, and the depth of the injections into the buttocks.
Q: Am I a good candidate for a buttock augmentation?
Candidates for a buttock augmentation include men and women who are unhappy with the size, shape or symmetry of their buttocks. Buttock augmentation patients should be in good mental and physical health prior to their procedure.
Q: How much time will I need for recovery following a buttock augmentation?
Results from your buttock augmentation will be visible immediately and only improve over time as post-surgical swelling ends and incision lines fade. Swelling can sometimes take three to six months to fully subside. Most patients wear a support garment for two to three weeks following their procedure.
