Buttock Augmentation - Houston, TX

For years many women have been unhappy with the size, shape or flabby appearance of their buttocks. They have tried exercise to enhance the shape of their buttocks with little or no success. Many feel that their jeans just don’t fit right, they don’t look good in a bathing suit or their buttocks are disproportionate to the rest of their body.

Until recently changing the shape of your buttocks was something  only  considered by celebrities.  Now Buttock Augmentation is becoming one of our most popular cosmetic procedures for everyone. It has  become popular with both men and women thinking of lifting, sculpting or augmenting their buttocks into a more desirable shape.

What is Buttock Augmentation?

Dr. Eisemann performs Buttock Augmentation for patients as an enhancement procedure to improve their overall look, shape and size of the buttocks. Enlargement of the butt has traditionally been accomplished with liposuction and fat transplantation. For Fat Transfer to be successful the patient needs to have an abundance of fat to utilize.  Since the body will absorb a significant amount of the fat injected, Dr. Eisemann will need to Liposuction as much fat from as many sites as possible for the procedure to be successful. For those patients that do not have  enough fat for retrieval for Fat Transplantation, Dr. Eisemann is also the only Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in this area of Texas and the Southwest to successfully perform Buttock Augmentation with Implants.

Your consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Eisemann will perform a comprehensive examination and will review your medical history and decide which procedure would be better for you.  He  will explain your treatment options and recommend which procedures will provide the best results for your body type. You will be shown before and after photos to help you visualize the various results possible. In addition, realistic expectations are explained and surgical procedures are discussed along with their risks and benefits, as well as your post surgery recovery. The procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis and anesthesia varies with the extent of the procedure.

How long is the procedure?

Buttock Augmentation surgery usually takes 2 – 3 hours under general anesthesia.

The procedure

The most frequent procedure used to improve the overall look, shape and size of the buttocks is fat transplantation. It is sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Eisemann will determine the areas to harvest the fat cells from and perform liposuction first. These areas are usually the abdomen and hips, but may include your back, arms, and  thighs. Next the fat cells that have been harvested are processed. Your fat is purified and re-injected into your buttocks at different depths to achieve the results you desire. Oftentimes Dr. Eisemann  will fine tune your new look with additional lipo-sculpting techniques. Not only do patients achieve a “perkier butt,” another bonus is the areas of liposuction will often be leaner and more proportional to the rest of your body.

Buttock Augmentation

If Dr. Eisemann agrees, implants may be another option for some patients. The implants, usually made of solid silicone, are surgically inserted into each buttock to enhance the shape and size. This option is usually selected for thin patients when desired results cannot be achieved with fat injections alone. Dr. Eisemann will recommend the appropriate procedure to achieve the attractive, well defined buttock results that you desire.

Who are the best candidates for a Buttock Augmentation?

The best candidates for a Buttock Augmentation:

  • Have had moderate weight loss and want to
    restore their shape
  • Have good physical health
  • Are over 18 years old
  • Are psychologically sound
  • Have realistic expectations of their outcome

What will my recovery be like?

After Dr. Eisemann performs your Buttock Augmentation surgery, most patients experience some swelling, soreness, and  pain that can be controlled with oral medication. Patients will be required to avoid sitting  and laying on their backside from several days to a week depending on the extent of surgery. A compression garment must be worn for 2 – 4 weeks to reduce swelling. Cold compresses can be used to further reduce swelling and ease discomfort. Patients may return to work in a week to two weeks depending on the type of their employment and the extent of the surgery. After approximately four weeks patients feel back to normal and may resume exercise.

As with all surgical procedures it’s important to follow our doctor’s recovery instructions for optimum healing and results.  Any questions or concerns should be directed to the office.
