Buttock Augmentation for Women

New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Have you long wanted bigger and shapelier buttocks? Have you tried gaining weight, losing weight, and every exercise available to try to get the buttocks you desire, only to find that nothing works? The buttocks are a very difficult area to shape on your own, but buttock augmentation is a procedure with a very high success rate that is becoming more and more popular as women learn about its great results.

If you would like to learn about surgical buttock augmentation and how it can help you get the figure you desire, please call or email New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits.

Why Buttock Augmentation

As noted above, it is very hard to reshape the buttocks with diet and exercise, but they are very important to the appearance of a woman's body. Shapely round buttocks can make the waist and thighs appear smaller, bringing the body into a more pleasing proportion. Properly proportioned buttocks can also help convey a more youthful, healthy appearance.

Although for many years cultural standards of beauty were dominated by thin, linear figures, the balance has slowly been swinging in favor of more curvaceous body shapes, including an appreciation for properly proportioned buttocks, the type of buttocks many women are unable to achieve on their own. As a result, buttock augmentation has grown in popularity in recent years.

If you are considering buttock enhancement, it is important to understand the distinction between the two most commonly performed types of the procedure:

  • Buttock augmentation with implants
  • Buttock augmentation with fat grafting

In buttock augmentation with implants, solid silicone implants are usually inserted within the buttocks, under the muscle. Although this procedure is an alternative for women who have little or no fat to be used for augmentation, it is not our preferred method for most cases. If one lacks sufficient fat, then we encourage the patient to gain weight to be able to undergo fat transplantation. Buttock augmentation with implants requires a longer healing time (about 4-6 weeks before full return to normal activities), patients experience prolonged pain, and the implant may be rejected by the body or displaced by the action of the muscles. In addition there is a higher incidence of infection. Furthermore it doesn’t feel natural.

Buttock augmentation with fat injection is a much preferred and more popular method and buttock enhancement. The technique has evolved in the past few years allowing for improved and better results. First, liposuction is used to remove fat from donor sites, which leads to additional body contouring. The fat is then processed and injected into the buttocks in very small injections uniformly through the area to be augmented. Some surgeons freeze the excess fat for further grafting. Dr. Lefkovits does not subscribe to this method because of the high rate of absorption. This procedure has several advantages, including:

  • A more natural appearance and feel
  • No foreign object in your body
  • No chance of rejection
  • Smaller incisions, which means less scarring
  • Shorter healing time (about 2 weeks before resuming normal activities)
  • Body sculpting of donor areas
  • Low incidence of infection

Because of these reasons, Dr. Lefkovits recommends augmentation with your own fat. But it’s important to be aware that in about 30% of the patients a second grafting may be necessary. In a very small percentage of patients more than 2 procedures may be desired or necessary.

The future of fat grafting may involve stem cells which show promising results, but as of now are not available nor approved for use in the United States.

Why Choose Dr. Lefkovits for Your Buttock Augmentation

In addition to being double board-certified, New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits is a leading specialist in buttock augmentation using fat transplantation attracting patients from all over the country as well as from around the world.. He has been performing this procedure for many years, long before it gained mainstream popularity.

Dr. Lefkovits also reminds women that they should always choose a board-certified plastic surgeon for their buttock augmentation, and avoid "practitioners" who offer discount procedures in medi-spas or cosmetic boutiques. Not only will you not get the results you desire from these uncertified workers, but you may put your health at risk.
