In the past five years, the popularity of buttock augmentation has exploded in the United States. This is one of the most commonly performed procedures by Dr. Jejurikar; this blog is designed to go over some basic information regarding the procedure.
What exactly is a butt augmentation?
Buttock augmentation is surgery designed to increase the size and projection of the buttocks. By far, the most commonly performed procedure utilizes a patient’s own fat, which is harvested by liposuction and then transplanted to the buttock; this procedure is known as the Brazilian Butt Lift. Another technique, largely reserved patients with insufficient fat reserves, is buttock augmentation utilizing gluteal implants.
What are butt shots or butt injections? Can they can be used to enhance the buttocks instead of surgery?
In the United States, no available filler will provide adequate volume to make a noticeable difference. Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane or Voluma would require thousands of dollars worth of injections to provide an obvious enhancement and do not provide permanent results. Other fillers, such as silicone, petroleum jelly, hydrogel, etc., can be dangerous and can cause permanent deformity or fatal complications. Your body’s own fat, without a doubt, is the best technique available.
Who’s the ideal patient for a Brazilian Butt Lift
Patient’s need to have some excess fat in order to get a great result. Ideally, excess fat around the waist or on the back and love handles can be removed through liposuction and then injected into the buttocks. The liposuction not only gathers material to use for buttock augmentation, but narrows the waist, leading to a dramatic transformation of the whole body.
