The buttocks are one of the most difficult regions of the body to shape and tone. Many men and women find that maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen alone usually isn’t enough to achieve the beautifully contoured butt they dream of having.
With his in-depth understanding of how difficult it is to attain an aesthetically appealing backside, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann is happy to provide butt augmentation in Houston. With this advanced body contouring technique, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are able to lift, redefine the shape, and even enhance the symmetry and definition of the buttocks, restoring balance and poise to the body.
What is butt augmentation?
Butt augmentation, also referred to as gluteal augmentation, is designed to create a rounder, firmer butt with more contours and a youthful aesthetic. Butt augmentation treatments are able to remove skin that is loose or sagging and add volume to flatter surfaces. In some cases, plastic surgeons opt to combine different surgery techniques to achieve optimal results for the patient.
Butt augmentation procedures utilize methods such as fat transfer, implants, or lifting techniques to help redefine and sculpt the contours of the butt.
What are the different types of butt augmentation?
Generally speaking, there are three main types of butt augmentation: a Brazilian butt lift (also known as butt lift with fat transfer), buttock implants, and butt injections. It is important that patients have a good understanding of the pros and cons of each procedure before determining which treatment option is right for them.
Brazilian butt lift
Brazilian butt lift procedures involve the use of liposuction to harvest fat from donor sites of the patient’s body where it is usually plentiful — the thighs, stomach, hips, and lower back. An additional benefit of the procedure is that it has a slimming and toning effect on these regions. After the harvested fat is sterilized and purified, it is then carefully injected into the butt, creating more rounded, feminine contours and enhancing the silhouette.
Another popular butt augmentation technique is butt implants, which consists of making small incisions in the crease near the buttocks, keeping them obscured. Going through these insertion points, surgeons can position the implants on top of the gluteus muscles, allowing them to volumize and enhance the body’s natural contours.
Butt lifts with injections
A butt lift with injections is a great alternative to undergoing surgery. Sculptra and Radiesse are two types of fillers that can be injected directly into the buttocks area, producing minimal to no side effects. These FDA-approved fillers work naturally with the body to stimulate collagen production. While many patients see a difference immediately following the treatment, final results usually settle in around the 3 to 4-month mark after treatment.
What are the benefits of a butt augmentation?
Considering that there are various forms of butt augmentation available today, it goes without saying that each one comes with its own specific set of benefits. Nonetheless, all butt augmentation procedures have a few of these in common, such as:
- The procedure results in overall improved body proportions
- Clothes fit better, giving the body a more enticing aesthetic
- Boosts self-confidence
The benefits of a BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) include:
- Contouring and sculpting of the buttocks area
- A natural, revitalized enhancement
- Slims and tones the donor sites, from which fat was harvested
The benefits of butt implants include:
- Results that last for years
- A good alternative for patients that don’t have enough fat to be harvested
- All patients in good physical and mental health are good candidates
The benefits of butt injections include:
- A cost-effective alternative to other methods
- Injectables are safe and biocompatible
Who is a good candidate for butt augmentation?
Candidacy for butt augmentation will depend on the procedure that has been selected. Patients that have a sufficient amount of fat in other areas of their body are ideal candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift. Patients that do not have sufficient fat will be better suited for butt implants or butt injections. Regardless of the approach taken, it is vital that patients be in good mental and physical health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.
What are the procedures like?
Dr. Michael Eisemann offers his patients butt augmentation in Houston either through fat transfers or by way of implants. For a butt augmentation with fat grafts, otherwise known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann harvest fat cells from the patient’s donor sites, such as the hips, waist, abdomen, and back.
This fat is then mechanically purified before being injected into certain points in the buttocks region. Considering that as much as 40 percent of this transferred fat can eventually be reabsorbed by the body, patients sometimes require additional fat graft augmentation procedures for maintenance. However, the plus side is that this approach comes with no risk of implant rejection and leaves the patient with completely natural looking and feeling results.
In cases where fat graft augmentation does not produce satisfactory results for the patient or if they simply prefer to see the results faster, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann can also perform a butt augmentation using silicone implants. As the name suggests, this option involves inserting silicone implants right below the gluteal muscles or below the fascia to lift or ‘augment’ the area.
Thanks to their strategic placement, implants look and feel very natural, but using them increases the likelihood of certain post-procedural complications. Beyond that, inserting silicone implants requires a more involved surgical procedure.
Overall, there is no uniform butt augmentation method that is going to work for everyone. During the initial consultation, Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann will go over options with the patients, assess their body frame, and help them choose a method that will help them meet all of their needs.
