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.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    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! .
