Not everyone is born with a healthy amount of “junk in their trunk!” Patients who have thin body frames or have lost significant weight may find that their buttocks doesn’t have the volume it needs to achieve healthy and attractive body contours. In situations such as this, Paramus, NJ area patients might start to consider the benefits of a butt lift, or butt augmentation, with Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey.
Which methods of butt augmentation and lift are available?
Our practice offers two methods of enhancing the bottom, including butt augmentation with a fat transfer or with silicone implants.
- Fat transfer – the fat transfer option is one way to address more than one area of the body while lifting and shaping the buttocks. Fat transfer requires the doctor to perform liposuction to harvest fat cells from one area of the body, such as the tummy, thighs, or flanks. This fat is then purified and processed before being injected into the buttocks to shape and volumize. Because the fat injected is the patient’s own fat cells, there is no risk of rejection or complications. The fat is injected and distributed properly in the area to achieve the desired final results. The results are long-lasting as fat remains in the area it was placed.
- Silicone implants – alternatively, patients can also achieve butt augmentation with the placement of silicone implants. Just like breast implants, buttocks implants can add volume and shape when inserted properly within the muscles and existing fat. The use of silicone implants is the not the first choice by our team, and it is only recommended for patients who want to augment the buttocks but have a thin frame and little body fat to properly harvest and reinject to complete a fat transfer.
