Liposuction and buttocks augmentation can improve buttocks shape and size using minimally-invasive liposuction techniques. Many patients experience a lack of fullness around the gluteal area, either due to genetics, pregnancy, substantial weight loss, or aging. This absence of volume may contribute to a flat appearance around the buttocks. Sagging or loose skin can also form as a result of these factors, depriving you of youthful-looking definition. Undergoing natural fat transfer for the buttocks can add volume to the gluteal region using your body’s own fat cells. During fat grafting, fat cells are collected from another area of the body and carefully inserted into the buttocks to provide volume and enhance curves. Asymmetries and irregularities around the buttocks can be smoothed with this innovative technique. Gluteal fat transfer can be combined with precise liposuction methods to provide shape to the body by removing small pockets of fat and encouraging skin tightening. Our liposuction surgeons offer fat transfer and buttocks augmentation at NYC Lipo to help restore natural-looking definition to the gluteal area.

Fat transfer for the buttocks is a two-part procedure that incorporates liposuction and natural fat injections to achieve natural-looking buttocks augmentation. First, fat is collected from a donor site through liposuction. Common donor sites include the midsection, flanks, and thighs. During your lipo procedure, tiny incisions are made around the donor area and micro cannulas are placed below the skin to remove excess fat cells. These fat cells are meticulously extracted and preserved for the gluteal fat grafting portion of your procedure. Your natural fat is then injected into the buttocks to provide smooth volume. Your lipo doctor can create balanced results by filling in areas of the buttocks that lack definition.
Buttocks augmentation surgery can effectively shape the backside and, in some cases, enlarge the buttocks, depending on the needs of the patient. Patients may suffer from skin laxity around the buttocks, resulting in a drooping appearance. Gluteal augmentation can reshape excess tissue to improve contours and accentuate curves. Moreover, sagging skin can be repositioned for firm definition. Patients undergoing gluteal augmentation can achieve numerous body sculpting benefits in a single procedure, as liposuction can slim the donor site, such as the waistline, while volumizing and shaping the buttocks. Dr. Levine will discuss which liposuction and buttocks augmentation techniques are ideal for you during your consultation at our NYC office.

Liposuction and buttocks augmentation can enhance gluteal definition and curves. Patients looking to volumize flat areas, smooth irregularities, and achieve a well-rounded shape can do so with fat grafting for the buttocks.

Buttocks lipo and gluteal augmentation requires the use of twilight or general anesthesia, depending on your individual procedure. Dr. Levine will discuss which of these forms of anesthesia are ideal for your liposuction and buttocks augmentation procedure during your consultation at our NYC office.
Liposuction and buttocks augmentation recovery varies from patient to patient. However, many patients return to work within a week of their procedure. Swelling and bruising may be seen around the donor site(s) and treatment area and may last for up to two weeks. Patients may need additional healing time before resuming exercise and other physical activities following their gluteal fat transfer and buttocks augmentation procedure.
Fat grafting and buttocks augmentation can achieve natural-looking definition and curves around the gluteal area. Your body’s natural fat can fill areas around the buttocks that are lacking in volume for smooth contours. Firmness can be reinforced through buttocks augmentation, which removes and lifts drooping skin for youthful-looking shape. Fat transfer and gluteal augmentation results are long-lasting.
In order to maximize your lipo and buttocks augmentation results, it is important to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Levine.
Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks prior to your liposuction and gluteal augmentation procedure, unless medically necessary. By doing so, patients minimize their risk of bruising and swelling. Blood-thinners and medications that contain ibuprofen or aspirin should be avoided. Patients should also refrain from taking multivitamins and herbal supplements.
Certain medications, including Tylenol, Bromelain, and Arnica Montana, may be recommended to alleviate pain or discomfort post-procedure. For more details regarding our liposuction and buttocks augmentation aftercare suggestions, click here.
