Buttock Lifts and Enhancements

Buttocks lift is an exciting procedure that can give fantastic lifting of the buttocks and lateral thighs. Laxity of the skin of the buttocks and outer thighs are corrected as well with this procedure. As can be seen in the marking pictures below, a tremendous amount of skin is removed during this procedure. This allows for the buttocks to be lifted and laxity eliminated. Although there is tremendous tension across the incision line with this procedure, the final scar is closed with a delicate dissolving sutures that leave the finest scar. Because the skin is so tight following this procedure, sitting must be performed very cautiously for the first few weeks following the procedure. The results with this procedure can be very gratifying for Hunstad Center patients who are frustrated with the droop and sagging of their buttocks and thighs.

Autologous Buttocks Augmentation

This procedure can be performed alongside a buttock lift to create an augmented appearance. This procedure is particularly helpful with patients who lack volume in the buttock padding or where the majority of their buttock volume lies within the excess skin and tissue to be removed. We offer two types of this augmentation: the autologous flap and the pursestring gluteoplasty.

With the autologous flap, the buttock padding is lifted to a more youthful position and is sutured into place. The pursestring gluteoplasty, developed by Dr. Hunstad, is a buttock- enhancing procedure. A suture is placed around the circumference of each buttock pad and is tightened to give more projection to the buttock. The result with both of these procedures is a lifted, more natural and youthful contour. The method that is right for you is determined in consultation.

 

This patient had a circumferential abdominoplasty. Due to her previous massive weight loss, she had significant laxity, drooping and volume loss to her buttocks. She underwent an autologous flap buttock augmentation using her own extra tissue to give her buttocks a boost.

Buttock Implant

Buttocks augmentation is a very popular procedure at the Hunstad Center.  We utilized the most advanced implants designed by Dr. De La Pena, a close friend of Dr. Hunstad's.  These implants are placed on top of the muscles so that the postoperative discomfort is minimal.  Through incisions hidden between the buttocks, the implants are placed below the surrounding fascia which secures them in place.  We are able to fully augment the entire buttocks with this technique.  The result is a beautiful and full buttocks. The previous technique of intermuscular augmentation could only enlarge the upper one-third of the buttocks.  There was much greater recovery and discomfort following this procedure.  Patient satisfaction has been extremely high with subfascial buttocks augmentation, but the results speak for themselves!

Fat Grafting to Buttocks

This procedure involves two steps. First, fat is suctioned from a donor site (usually the abdomen). Then, it is injected into the buttocks using the syringe technique. There are a few benefits to this procedure. First, since it is your own tissue being used, there are no issues with rejection. Second, it allows you to get the fuller buttock you want while shrinking another less desirable area. And lastly, there are no lengthy incisions with this procedure.
