Get your butt back! At Preminger Plastic Surgery, we can perform a buttock augmentation to lift your butt, improve its shape, or even increase its size.
A buttock augmentation can serve to increase the fullness, roundness, and projection of your butt or buttocks. It can improve the balance of your figure. And, as is the case with any plastic surgery procedure performed by Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, she makes certain that a buttock augmentation leaves a patient with an improved self-image and more self-confidence.
There are two types of buttock augmentation. The first involves fat grafting or a fat transfer, which is often referred to as a Brazilian butt lift, made popular by many Hollywood celebrities. The other type of procedure involves receiving butt implants.
According to data compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2016, the average cost of a buttock augmentation procedure was $4,356. However, the cost of this type of procedure can vary widely. The fee estimates assembled by the ASPS do not include anesthesia, operating facilities, or other surgery-related expenses. As with any type of cosmetic procedure, concerns about the cost of a buttock augmentation procedure should be secondary to the results achieved and the skill of the plastic surgeon you choose to perform the operation.
Choosing the right plastic surgeon to perform your buttock augmentation is crucial. Make sure the surgeon is board-certified and has experience with the specific procedure you want. Ask to see examples of his or her work on other plastic surgery patients. Your comfort level with your surgeon is as important a factor as the cost when determining whether or not you wish to proceed with a plastic surgery procedure.
Is buttock augmentation right for you?
Ask yourself the following questions to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure:
- Are you physically healthy?
- Do you think that your butt is too small?
- Are you unhappy with the shape of your butt?
- Is your butt asymmetrical?
- Do you have realistic expectations of the results that can be achieved through plastic surgery?
If you can answer yes to several of these questions, and you are in good overall health, then butt augmentation may be right for you.
Each type of buttock augmentation has a specific set of conditions you should adhere to during recovery.
Butt augmentation – what to expect
If you receive an augmentation with implants, you likely will need to wear a support garment for a few weeks following the procedure. The final results of the procedure should be visible about three months following the surgery after the swelling has diminished and the implants have settled into their preferred position.
A Brazilian butt lift patient may need to avoid sitting for extended periods of time for at least two weeks—sometimes longer, depending on the recommendations of the surgeon you choose. Prolonged sitting can damage the newly transferred fat. When you do have to sit, use a pillow or cushion that is positioned behind the legs to elevate the buttocks and diminish the pressure on the fat grafts.
After any surgical procedure, it is vital to follow all the instructions provided to you by your surgeon.
