Buttocks Augmentation (Buttocks Lift)

Butt Lift & Buttock Augmentation in New York

Many women want a firm, well-rounded derriere to help accentuate their feminine curves.  But, enhanced buttocks volume is not something that can be found at the gym.  Whether you’re looking to add fullness where genetics have failed you, or you want to lift and contour the buttocks to correct unwanted changes from aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss, a buttock augmentation can help you achieve the beautiful, shapely figure you desire.  Since every woman has a unique body and very personal goals, Dr. Levine uses a combination of the most advanced buttock enhancement techniques to achieve results that are truly customized for each individual.  Natural fat grafting allows a high degree of flexibility in helping to produce a fuller, more shapely buttocks.  And because fat grafting uses your own fat to augment volume rather than relying on foreign substances, risks are minimized and the results will be softer, as well as more natural-looking and natural-feeling.*  In addition to fat grafting, Dr. Levine can reshape and lift the buttocks, a procedure that is especially beneficial for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight.  During a buttock lift, the internal tissue can be manipulated and rotated into a more youthful and pleasing position.  Targeted liposuction around the buttocks area can also help emphasize curves and improve the overall body profile.

How is buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery performed?

The buttock augmentation/buttock lift procedure will vary depending on your individual anatomy.   Dr. Levine may recommend a combination of techniques to increase buttocks volume, improve contours, accentuate curves, and lift the buttocks into a more pleasing position.  Natural fat grafting is the most common procedure to enhance buttocks volume.  Excess fat will be gently removed from targeted areas of the body.  Then, using very tiny incisions, Dr. Levine will transfer micro droplets of your own natural fat to augment buttocks volume.   In some cases, a buttock lift may be performed to raise the buttocks into a more aesthetically pleasing position, a procedure that is especially beneficial for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight.  During the buttock lift procedure, internal tissue can be manipulated and rotated into a more youthful position, with incisions well hidden in the bikini line.  For both buttock augmentation and buttock lift procedures, localized liposuction in areas surrounding the buttocks is often used to help improve overall contouring.  Dr. Levine will discuss with you which procedure or combination of procedures will help you achieve your desired goals.  

Can buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery be combined with other procedures?

Buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery is often combined with other procedures, such as liposuction, thigh lift, lower body lift, breast augmentation, facial fat grafting, and tummy tuck.  Dr. Levine will discuss with you which procedures or combination of procedures may best suit your specific needs. 

How can I prepare for buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Levine will examine your buttocks and surrounding areas to determine fat availability and distribution.  He will also address your medical history and discuss other factors that may affect buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery, such as previous surgeries and history of weight fluctuations.  He will thoroughly discuss your goals and expectations, including possible risks and the best way to prepare for your surgery.  He will let you know what to expect before, during, and after your procedure, and he will answer any questions that you may have. 

What type of anesthesia will be used for buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery?

We recommend general or twilight anesthesia for buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery.  You will discuss your procedure thoroughly with both Dr. Levine and our board-certified anesthesiologist to determine the best type of anesthesia for your needs. 

What can I expect during buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery?

Buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis in our state-of-the-art, in-office operating suite, which is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF).  The length of your surgery will depend on many factors, but on average, the procedure usually takes 2-4 hours.*  After your procedure, you will wake up in our warm and caring recovery suite, where our licensed, registered nurse will make sure you are comfortable and assist in your recovery.  You will be able to go home the same day with a friend or family member. 

What can I expect after buttock augmentation/buttock lift surgery?

Every surgery is different, and you will receive detailed post-operative instructions for your specific needs.  In general, you can expect to have swelling in the area for 1-2 weeks after surgery.*  Most patients report mild to moderate pain after the surgery, which is usually well-tolerated with medications.  At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, our concern for you doesn’t end when you go home.  We’re dedicated to providing ongoing care to ensure a fast, safe, and smooth recovery.  Dr. Levine will see you for post-operative visits, and he and our staff stand ready to answer any questions you may have about your recovery, as well as your overall health and well-being.
