About this Treatment
Buttock enhancement, butt implants, buttock lift, ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’, and gluteal augmentation are all terms often used to represent aesthetic surgical procedures that improve the overall shape, volume, contour, and dimensions of the buttocks.
There also are a number of non-surgical options that also may be considered for buttock enhancement by increasing gluteal muscle (the major buttock muscle) tone, skin tightening, and fat reduction. If you are considering a butt lift in Toledo, our team of specialists can help.
What It Is
Aging, heredity, weight loss, and weight gain may all cause progressive loss of buttock shape by deflation and fat loss, sagging tissue with skin laxity, and disproportional fatty excess. Buttock or gluteal augmentation refers to improving buttock shape and proportion with either buttock gel implants, transfer of fat or fat grafting, or sometimes a combination of the two. The Brazilian Butt Lift by Dr. Frank Barone in Toledo, Ohio is a popular term that refers to a combination of removal of excess fatty deposits in or around the buttocks by liposuction and then simultaneous fat transfer or implant augmentation of the buttocks. The buttock, or gluteal lift, is a surgical procedure, often combined with a body lift (link) surgery, that elevates and supports sagging or loose buttock skin and tissue to a more youthful and balanced contour. Our team of specialists can help you get the look you want with a butt lift in Toledo.

How A Butt Lift Works
Your surgeon will assist you in determining whether gluteal augmentation with fat transfer or implant, or liposuction contouring and buttock lift in Toledo would best meet your expectations and goals. Discussion of non-surgical options, if appropriate, will also be done. Patient photos are reviewed, and choices are discussed considering recovery time, costs, and desired expectations and results.
Buttock lift surgery in Toledo is done in an accredited outpatient surgery center under a light general anesthetic administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist and experienced licensed nursing staff. Revisions or minor procedures may be done in some cases in the office procedure room under a local anesthetic with oral sedation when appropriate.
Buttock surgical incisions will depend upon the type of procedure planned and the extent of correction needed to achieve a natural result. Incision placement is planned where it will allow proper correction and be less noticeable. Excess fat removal by ultrasonic (Vaser) or power-assisted liposuction is done through small access incisions typically within the skin to be removed or hidden in natural creases.
After the planned anesthetic is given, a dilute solution of adrenaline and lidocaine (tumescent solution) is perfused throughout the surgical sites and fatty excess is removed. This is essential to minimize bleeding and discomfort, allowing lower levels of general anesthetic and cooling the tissue for Vaser treatment. If fat grafting is planned, a specific harvesting technique and fat collection system are used to purify and maximize fat cell viability. If implants are planned, they are placed with a special and strict sterile technique through small incisions in the buttock folds. When simultaneous body lift surgery is done, the buttock lift is done through the posterior waistline incision. Long-acting nerve blocks (Exparel) are placed, and a specialized garment is applied to complete the procedure.
You will return to the office in a few days after surgery for your first dressing change. You will see the visible improvements immediately and they will continue to get better as swelling and bruising subside. With fat grafting or gluteal implants, positioning to reduce pressure on the buttocks will be discussed. Post-operative therapeutic treatments with lymphatic and sound wave massage, LED LightStim bed treatment, and other proven modalities will be available to reduce swelling, discomfort, and downtime. We will give you specific instructions and recommendations on activities and care of the operative site at each visit.
