Searching for butt enhancement? Reveal curves with buttock augmentation surgery in NYC

Buttock Augmentation NYC

Trim stubborn pockets of fat that “resist” diet and exercise and boost fabulous curves in a single procedure with the Brazilian Butt Lift. This type of buttock augmentation is popular in NYC, and beyond, because it’s considered a relatively low-risk procedure with a high rate of success. Plus, butt enhancement surgery gets desirable results in areas of the body that are notoriously difficult to alter with exercise alone.

Reshape or restore

Maybe you’ve been dissatisfied with the projection or shape of your backside for as long as you can remember. Have changes over time affected how your clothes drape or fit, and how you feel about your looks? Genes, aging, damage from the sun’s UV rays or tanning beds, pregnancy, and yo-yo diets all contribute to the loss of collagen and elastin responsible for springy, firm skin. A sagging backside may appear flat, with an irregular, dimpled surface.

Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan, can achieve the proportion you’ve always desired but never had, or regain smooth, symmetrical, and attractive contours. Just as synthetic materials may be used to augment or boost the size of your breasts, implants may be used to boost the buttocks. The Brazilian Butt Lift is considered a “natural” alternative to augmentation with implants. It’s also aptly called butt augmentation with fat transfer. The “Brazilian” part of its name comes from the native country of plastic surgeon Dr. Ivo Pitanguy, who is credited with inventing the procedure. The “natural” part comes from the use of your body’s own fat.

Dr. Kwan removes fat from areas where there are pockets of excess, such as the abdomen and thighs. The fat is then purified and injected into your backside and outer hips. Since it is derived from your body, the fat transfer process at the heart of BBL eliminates the risk of allergic reactions associated with synthetic implants.

Many patients prefer BBL – is it right for you?

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a real surgery. All surgical procedures have an element of risk. Those risks are minimized by partnering with an experienced, skilled surgeon such as Dr. Kwan. Board certification further validates Dr. Kwan’s knowledge and experience in this specialty area. Surgical procedures are performed at a certified ambulatory operating room for utmost safety and peace of mind.

As with any other procedure, buttock augmentation starts with a consultation. Some conditions, such as heart or neurological disorders, may preclude you from enhancement with Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Kwan evaluates many factors that play a role in your suitability for this surgery and the technique used to meet your goals:

  • How much fat is available to remove and transfer
  • The quality of your skin
  • Skin’s elasticity
  • Pre-treatment butt size
  • Current shape, contours
  • Level of desired improvement

Having a realistic outlook about surgery is a must. You must also have a history of maintaining a stable weight for at least three months or longer. If Dr. Kwan recommends moving forward with the procedure, it’s critical to follow pre-treatment instructions. Stop using any tobacco or aspirin-containing products that can interfere with healing and increase your odds of developing post-surgical complications.

Your curves and confidence, revealed!

Butt Enhancement Surgery
The surgical procedure starts with medications safely administered for your comfort. Dr. Kwan will discuss sedation with you during your consultation. Surgery itself is made up of two different parts starting with the removal of the fat. Very thin tubes or microcannulas suction out the fat, which is processed and then injected into the backside. Usually all that’s required is several small injections evenly spaced across the treatment area until your goal volume boost and shape is achieved.

You’ll see immediate results! Full improvement is gradual, because the fat is absorbed and settles in the body in the months following your surgery. You’ll follow post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Kwan. Using compression garments as directed and refraining from activities or positions that place pressure on the treated area help tissues conform quickly to your new shape, while reducing bruising, swelling, and other potential complications.

It’s estimated that patients retain anywhere from 60 to 80 percent of the transferred fat. To learn more about the predictable and stunning results of a procedure that is low-risk when performed by a trained and talented surgeon in a certified facility, contact Edmund Kwan, MD. The team looks forward to seeing you at the Manhattan, Flushing, or New Jersey office.
