Buttock Lift and Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Transfer in Gainesville, Florida

Butt LiftTransverse Thigh Buttock Lift

Weight fluctuation and aging and genetics can result in skin laxity and sagging in the buttocks region. The Buttock Lift procedure best addresses these concerns in women and men.  People who have experienced dramatic or massive weight loss by diet and exercise or bariatric surgery are candidates for this procedure. 

The buttock lift procedure is best performed with a transverse incision parallel to the waist and the resulting scar is hidden within the Bikini line. The lose skin and excess fat in the upper buttock region is carefully removed and the remaining buttock skin and underlying fat are lifted to a higher position.  Lateral thigh skin laxity and wrinkling are also treated with this procedure-so often a combination of a buttock lift and outer thigh lift are performed.  This is known as a Transverse Thigh Buttock Lift. This procedure was developed  by plastic surgeon Dr. Ted Lockwood, and was designed to avoid the unsightly scars in the posterior gluteal-thigh crease that result from older Buttocks lift techniques (such as the Pintanguy lift).

Permanent deep sutures are used to anchor the deep connective tissue that encompasses the fat which can prevent and minimize scar widening and depression. Liposuction is often used in combination with this procedure to address local fat deposits.

The Transverse Thigh Buttock Lift can be combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).  The combination of both of these procedures is known as a Lower Body Lift.

Buttock Augmentation by Fat Transfer in Gainesville, Florida

A procedure that has grown in popularity over recent years is Buttock augmentation with fat transfer, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift.  Liposuction is used to contour the waist, hips, thighs and other areas to sculpt the figure.  The fat that is lipsuctioned is then refined through a straining and decanting process and then injected into the buttocks. The goal of Buttock Augmentation by Fat Transfer is to re shape the buttock and scupt the surrounding areas of the body.

The shape, skin laxity and amount and location of fat deposits determine if someone is a candidate for Buttock Augmentation by fat transfer.
