New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- The focus on the buttocks as a source of beauty has recently led to a significant increase in the number of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures to enhance the size and shape of the gluteal region. Plastic surgeons across the US have been busy learning new techniques and using new technology to meet the demands of patients seeking a more pleasing buttock. New York board certified plastic surgeon Douglas Senderoff MD http://www.drsenderoff.com has been performing buttock augmentation for over 10 years in his accredited surgical facility located on Park Avenue South in NYC. Dr Senderoff reports a huge surge in demand for shapely buttocks due to the popularity of celebrities such as J. Lo, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Sofia Vergara, and Kim Kardashian to name a few.
Potential buttock augmentation patients from around the world seek Dr Senderoff’s expertise in buttock augmentation plastic surgery to reshape their buttocks. In an effort to meet the patient demand for buttock augmentation plastic surgery Dr Senderoff offers SKYPE buttock augmentation consultations.
"There are many roads to achieving the perfect buttock," according to Dr Senderoff who cautions that not all buttocks need be created in the same manner. Buttock augmentation using a solid silicone implant is the most permanent method of buttock enhancement but is not without risks similar to breast augmentation. The buttock implant is inserted through a small incision in the buttock cleft under anesthesia. The implant can be placed either within the gluteal muscles or in the muscle lining depending on the thickness of the patient’s skin and fat. The best candidate for buttock implants is a patient with a buttock that does not sag but lacks adequate size and projection.
Fat transplantation to the buttock aka "Brazilian Buttock" is another technique employed by plastic surgeons to add volume to the buttock. “Not a day passes where I do not have a consultation for the Brazilian Butt Lift, “stated Dr Senderoff, “however not all patients realize that this procedure may not be the best plastic surgery for their desired outcome”. Ideal candidates for buttock fat transplantation include patients with ample donor site fat who desire a modest enhancement. Fat transplantation involves a 2 part surgical procedure where fat is suctioned from areas such as the hips, abdomen, love handles and thighs and then processed by spinning it in a centrifuge to remove the blood and nonfat components. This fat is then injected into the areas of the buttock that need to be enhanced. The downside of fat transplantation is the variability of results due to the unpredictable rate of fat absorption which can be between 30 and 50%.
There are no permanent fillers available in the US for injection into the buttock. Buttock enhancement with liquid silicone is not approved by the FDA and can be potential dangerous.
About Nonsurgical Options
Nonsurgical options which are increasing in popularity for buttock shaping include ultrasound and radiofequency devices (offered by the NYC plastic surgeon) designed to smooth and refine the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This type of buttock augmentation is commonly referred to as “buttock shaping”.
