When it comes to achieving a full, round bottom, many people find it difficult to improve their natural shape. Whether due to genetic factors, diet, exercise, or traumatic injury, many people find it difficult to change the shape of their butts at all. If you are currently unhappy with the size or shape of your behind, there is a solution: buttock augmentation. At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery, we can offer a variety of procedures designed to meet your individual needs. To learn more, contact us at 310-888-8087 today.
You are considered a good candidate for buttock augmentation if you are in good overall health and at least 18 years of age. Patients with at least one area of the body where there is excess fat may consider the Brazilian Butt Lift, although those without this luxury can consider other types of buttock augmentation. In order to be considered an ideal candidate, you will need to refrain from smoking and taking certain medications prior to surgery. Dr. Chiu will advise you on specific instructions prior to surgery, as well as on what results you can expect from your procedure.
The exact nature of your procedure will depend on what type of buttock augmentation you decide to have. The basic idea is to increase the size of your buttocks, helping them project further out from the body and creating a more pleasing overall contour. Using either fat harvested from your own body or specially designed implants, Dr. Chiu is able to give your behind the full, round appearance you desire. Liposcultpure may also be employed around the hips, thighs, or flanks to enhance the contour of the buttocks relative to the surrounding anatomical structures.
All buttock augmentation procedures are accompanied by some soreness and swelling, which usually resolves within a few days. The use of a special compression garment worn around your buttocks will reduce these symptoms. You should avoid sitting directly on your buttocks during this time. After about a week, most patients are able to return to work. However, you will need to avoid more strenuous physical activity for at least one month following surgery. Dr. Chiu will advise you on the specifics of your recovery and check your progress every step of the way.
The results of your buttock augmentation procedure will be immediately apparent, although the swelling will distort the shape initially. If you opt for the Brazilian butt lift, your behind will change slightly over the next few months as your body reabsorbs some of the transferred fat cells. In the case of buttock implants, the results are quite permanent.
The first step on the road to a whole new derriere begins with your very own consultation with Dr. Chiu. To schedule an appointment at our Beverly Hills offices, contact us today.
