Although being slim and slender is considered attractive, many individuals also want a curvy figure, including full buttocks. Unfortunately, not everyone is naturally born with these dimensions. Buttocks Lift and Augmentation, also known as a butt lift, can lift and fill out the butt, helping to create the curves that many patients desire.
Dr. Berardi is a skilled body contouring surgeon who offers this treatment to his Scottsdale cosmetic surgery patients. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your buttocks, read through the paragraphs below to learn more about what a buttock augmentation in Scottsdale can accomplish.
The Buttock Augmentation Procedure
Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can significantly improve the contours of the butt, making it perkier and fuller. Dr. Berardi is able to perform buttock augmentation using several methods, including traditional butt lift surgery and butt lift with fat transfer. The type of augmentation that you undergo will depend on your specific aesthetic goals as well as Dr. Berardi’s professional recommendations.
Traditional Butt Lift
During the surgery, which is performed under general anesthesia, Dr. Berardi will make an incision along your lower back. He will then lift the skin below the incision to raise the buttocks. During this time he will also trim away excess skin and fat from the area, and may use liposuction to create a sculpted final result.
This procedure may also be performed in conjunction with thigh lift surgery to completely rejuvenate the lower body. The procedure typically takes about two hours, depending on the extent of the changes being made.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Butt lift with fat transfer, sometimes referred to as a “Brazilian butt lift,” uses fat from other parts of your body to add volume to the buttocks. It also involves the removal of excess skin or fat from the thighs, as well as the lifting of the skin near the lower back. Fat is usually harvested from your thighs, abdomen or hips through a liposuction procedure, and then purified and re-injected into the buttocks. Dr. Berardi will make a series of fat injections on the buttocks to ensure that volume is added evenly and produces an attractive final result.
Butt lift surgery is a comprehensive treatment, and as such you will most likely stay the night in the hospital before being released to go home and continue your recovery.
Buttock Augmentation Recovery
Recovery from butt augmentation in Scottsdale varies from patient to patient and will be based on your own personal health as well as the specific type of procedure that you receive.
Post-Operation & Returning to Work
You should expect to spend one night in the surgical facility before being released home with thorough post-operative instructions to facilitate a fast and safe healing process. You will experience mild swelling and discomfort in the days after your procedure, which can be controlled by medications prescribed by Dr. Berardi.
You should avoid sitting for about one week, and will be able to return to work within about two weeks. You can expect to see the final results of your buttock augmentation surgery take shape within a few months of treatment. Dr. Berardi and his staff are available to answer any of your questions that may arise during your recovery period in Phoenix or Scottsdale.
Buttock Augmentation Candidates
Butt augmentation is a purely cosmetic procedure which may be right for you if you are unhappy with sagging, loose skin around the buttocks, or a lack of volume in the butt. You should not undergo the procedure if you plan to lose a significant amount of weight, as this can hinder the long-term results of treatment.
During a pre-surgical consultation, Dr. Berardi will evaluate your candidacy for butt augmentation in Scottsdale and will make recommendations about the best form of treatment for you. It is important that you have healthy motivations and realistic goals regarding the outcome of surgery.
