What is Buttock Shaping?
Buttock shaping involves harvesting excess fat from one area of the patient and then processing the fat cells for placement in the recipient site – in this case, the buttocks. Fat grafting provides a very natural appearing and long-lasting enhancement and is a technique that our plastic surgeons have utilized and refined over the years. If the patient lacks excess fatty tissue, then buttock implants may be an option.
If the buttock tissues are loose and sagging, or if too large and out of proportion we would look to a combination of procedures. Excess fat can be removed gently and effectively by ultrasonic liposuction, and then the loose tissue can be re-suspended or resected with a body lift or buttock lift. This technique can result in a youthful and balanced contour to the buttocks that have a significant impact on an attractive body shape.
