To Liposuction or Not to Liposuction*

Posted December 02, 2013 in Brazilian Butt Lift, Butt Augmentation, English, Liposuction

Butt enhancement surgery can be performed to achieve rounder, voluminous buttocks with a more attractive contour.* There are a couple different techniques that can be used for the surgery: patients have the option of butt augmentation with fat transfer or butt augmentation with implants.

The fat transfer, or “autologous fat grafting,” method involves removing fat from one area of the patient’s body via liposuction to be injected into the buttocks. However, those who do not have enough excess fat to be used for grafting will need silicone butt implants to achieve the more voluptuous derriere they desire.* Once the method of butt augmentation has been decided, I also give my patients the option of further contouring their buttocks and surrounding areas with liposuction.

Liposuction can be combined with butt augmentation surgery for a more comprehensive enhancement of the patient’s posterior.& When I was studying under the doctors who developed the Brazilian Butt Lift technique, they did not offer liposuction of areas of the butt to further contour it. Rather, they just took fat from other areas of the body and used it to augment the buttocks. I realized that if certain areas of the buttocks and legs also had liposuction, which could also be combined with the butt implant method, it would further enhance the overall appearance of the patient’s backside.*

A more shapely rear can be achieved by removing excess fat from above, below, or on the sides of the buttocks.*

  • Patients that have a flat backside with excess fat in the upper outside part of the buttocks can benefit from liposuction to improve the wide appearance of their behind. This will draw more attention to the round projection of their resulting rear end and provide a more attractive shape.*
  • Some patients who desire more volume in the buttocks have excess fat in the inner and outer thighs that detracts from the aesthetics of their posterior. Liposuction of these areas can provide more slender legs that lead up to their newly shaped backside.*
  • If there is a droopy appearance from excess fat in the lower butt or upper outer thighs, liposuction can be performed in these areas concurrently with the butt augmentation procedure in order to correct this “dirty diaper look” and procure a more lifted appearance.*

With all of my butt enhancement procedures, I fully evaluate where and how the buttocks can be reshaped in relation to the rest of the individual’s body in order to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing results.* To learn more about butt augmentation or to schedule a consultation, please feel free to call my Miami, Florida plastic surgery center at (305) 860-0717 or fill out our online consultation form.
