Embrace enhanced curves with natural buttock augmentation in New York

Dr. Edmund Kwan uses implants or fat for buttock augmentation in New York.

Buttock augmentation in New York at the offices of Edmund Kwan, MD is safely tailored to each patient’s unique needs for a boost that looks natural and achieves or exceeds your goals for treatment. If you have always been unhappy with your curves or have noticed unwanted changes following the birth of a child or with the passage of time, you may be a candidate for buttock augmentation through “natural” enhancement with “autologous” tissues – or fat from your own body. Think of it this way: You can trim an area with excess fat while boosting another area that needs the volume in a single visit! This approach allows truly dramatic and life-changing improvements in your appearance.

Augmentation with your own fat

Better known as “natural” butt augmentation or the “Brazilian Butt Lift,” this approach to enlarging your backside uses fat from your own body. An implant isn’t required. Generally, BBL is associated with more favorable contours in the area where fat is removed, as well as in the areas where fat is placed. These improved contours are achieved with minimal scars in the hands of experienced Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan. Risks inherent to implants, such as the possibility that your body could reject foreign material, are completely avoided by using your body’s own fat. Risks are further minimized by performing natural butt augmentation at Edmund Kwan, MD’s AAAASF-certified ambulatory surgery facility.

Dr. Kwan will also have discussed options for anesthesia with you prior to surgery. Anesthesia is administered safely at the accredited facility where he has performed thousands of successful procedures through the decades.

The process

Dr. Kwan first uses predictable, advanced tumescent liposuction to remove fat from areas of the body where you don’t want it; for instance, pockets of fat around the waist, belly, and thighs are notoriously stubborn to reduce with diet and exercise alone. The fat, tissues, and blood are processed with the same type of thin tubes or cannulas that were used to remove it – only this time, Dr. Kwan injects the purified fat into areas where you want the additional volume.

By “purified fat,” we’re referring to cells that have been spun in a centrifuge. This important step isolates the highest quality fat cells and separates these cells from non-fat components such as other cells and fluids. This means only the healthiest and most viable fat is used for your augmentation procedure.

Small injections are gently made throughout your backside for results that look and feel natural. Similarly, this approach to fat injection ensures permanent acceptance and reduces the chance that fat will be absorbed back into the body; for instance, the gluteus muscle is considered to be a very robust recipient site that provides fat with a supply of blood. These characteristics improve the chances that injected fat will survive.

Dr. Kwan will also ensure that both buttocks are symmetrical and that the treated areas look natural.

A few of the things that are good for patients to know about fat transfer or BBL include:

  • Results are immediately noticeable. But it can take a year for the fat to “take.”
  • What this means is there may be some projection that is lost in the months following your injections.
  • Many patients enjoy the trade-offs, and how natural this method appears and feels.
  • Your body absorbs, on average, 20 to 40 percent of the transferred fat.
  • Results can change as weight fluctuates, because grafted fat behaves just like fat cells in other parts of your body.

Generally, fat transfer is for healthy patients who want a perkier look, but don’t necessarily require a big boost to the size of their backsides. Patients must have adequate fat available at the “donor” sites. For patients concerned about skin quality and laxity, a gluteal lift may be in order. Tissues are removed and repositioned to achieve a less saggy or dimpled appearance. Dr. Kwan can’t recommend the optimal approach for you until after a thorough consultation and conversation about your preferences and goals.

    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)

    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
