Butt implants can provide individuals with larger buttocks, giving them more “junk in the trunk.” However, using implants to augment the butt limits the type of sculpting I can accomplish as opposed to when using the fat transfer method. My “Highlight Liposculpting and Lipo Fat Transfer” 3-D approach allows me to enhance the patient’s natural physique in an individualized fashion, while also providing more “junk in the trunk.”
One of the benefits of buttock augmentation via fat transfer, or “fat grafting,” is that the patient is able to undergo two procedures in one setting. Liposuction is first performed on specific areas of the body that store excess fat, giving those regions a more svelte appearance. Following that, the fat taken is harvested and prepared for buttock injection, which will be done in predetermined points of insertion. Prior to surgery, I will have defined the patient’s buttock shape, learned about his/her aesthetic goals, and determined how much bigger he/she would like to go. The fat transfer technique allows for accuracy and gives me the opportunity to create an artistic piece of work. I take the whole body into consideration when enhancing the buttocks in order to provide overall proportionate, flattering, and natural-looking results.
The “Miami Thong Lift” is one of my most recently developed signature techniques. It is an innovative procedure that is designed to raise the buttocks from an inconspicuous location – where a thong panty string would lay. Women can enjoy having a fuller, enhanced shape without dreading noticeable scars that are associated with many procedures.
Ninety percent of patients request butt augmentation at my practice; and in a thorough consultation, I help them learn about the differences between implants and the fat transfer method, and which one will benefit them the most.
