Body Expert Kristin Boehm, MD was recognized in Allure Magazine for the Non-Surgical Butt Lift!
The Non-Surgical Butt Lift, performed by board-certified body surgeon Dr. Kristin Boehm, is an injectable procedure that requires no downtime. It’s recommended for patients who want to increase the volume and roundness of their backside without undergoing surgery. Many patients see a significant lift of the buttocks after one or two injectable treatments. The Non-Surgical Butt Lift is ideal for the patient who is looking to make their silhouette look more youthful and contoured without undergoing surgery. By rejuvenating a backside that lost its shape and volume, you can achieve a better fitting wardrobe with natural, well-proportioned curves.
How does the Non-Surgical Butt Lift work?
The Non-Surgical Butt Lift uses Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid filler that triggers the body’s natural inflammatory response. The result is that the body creates fresh collagen, giving your skin more volume. Your plastic surgeon will inject Sculptra into the buttocks during your session. Over the next several weeks, you’ll continue to see a subtle lift and increase in volume to the injected area.
How long do the results of the Non-Surgical Butt Lift last?
If you’re looking for immediate results, this may be the procedure for you! Getting a little more junk in your trunk can be as easy as seeing body expert Kristin Boehm, MD, for a 30 minute appointment. One of the additional benefits of the Non-Surgical Butt Lift is that the results can last up to two years or more.
Is there any down-time for Non-Surgical Butt Lift?
Following a non surgical butt lift, there is no associated down time! There may be some bruising which can last for anywhere between a few days to two weeks. Patients may resume all activity after their injections including sitting and exercise.
Fat Transfer to the Buttock or “Brazilian Butt Lift”
Many patients express an interest in improving the contouring of their buttock when they explain how they envision changing their body’s appearance. There is now an innovative procedure available to enhance the buttocks: Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as Fat Transfer to the Buttock, Fat Grafting to the Buttock, or Buttock Enhancement.
A Brazilian Butt Lift may be performed alongside other body contouring surgeries such as Breast Surgery or Liposuction for a full-body makeover. Atlanta-based Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery body surgeon, Kristin Boehm, MD, can perform this surgery to improve a patient’s silhouette and provide natural curvature in that area.
Fat grafting to the buttock is performed through a two-step procedure that is doubly beneficial to a patient’s body. First, excess fat is suctioned from the body through Liposuction. The patient may have extra adipose tissue around their midsection or on the front or back of their thighs which can be removed through a small incision. A cannula is inserted below the skin and uses a sterile medical vacuuming device to collect extra fat. This fat can then be treated and redistributed to the buttocks through a single series of injections. By creating volume with the patient’s own fat during an autologous fat transfer, the butt will appear more naturally round. The doctor can create the illusion of a lifted bottom by adding more fat to the upper portion of each buttock.
Typically, when referring to a “Brazilian Butt Lift,” the procedure is performed through a fat transfer. Many surgeons find this procedure superior to an augmentation procedure with implants for a number of reasons. The final results are often more natural and permanent, whereas buttock implants can shift or create scar tissue, and must be replaced after a number of years. Additionally, a buttock enhancement fat transfer can provide additional contouring through the initial Liposuction phase of the procedure.
An added benefit of the procedure is that there is minimal scarring as a mini cannula can be utilized during Liposuction, and the incisions may be cleverly hidden in natural folds of the skin. The butt will also look better unclad and with clothing. Many patients explain that certain garments do not fit them well until they have undergone Buttock Enhancement.
Candidates for Buttock Enhancement
Both men and women alike are encouraged to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kristin Boehm if they feel they would benefit from the curvature the procedure can provide. In general, patients must be:
- Physically and mentally healthy adults
- Seeking to enlarge and lift the buttocks
- Of a healthy weight to support fat harvesting
There may be more specific requirements that the doctor will discuss with you during the initial doctor-patient consultation, dependent upon individual circumstances. Unique requirements may call for the patient to gain weight so that Liposuction is possible.
Some patients request Brazilian Butt Lift after they have experiences weight fluctuations, or are unable to naturally tone the buttocks to create a rounded rear end. Buttock enhancement may also benefit patients who are seeking additional aesthetic procedures, as previously explained. Enhanced buttocks can balance out a large chest, which may be the case in women who undergo Breast Augmentation Surgery, or seek a Breast Reduction and maximum harmony of their silhouette. Men who hope to gain a shapelier figure through Pectoral Implant surgery may also opt for additional aesthetic fixes like Calf Implants and buttock enhancement for a full-body enhancement. A fuller buttock also pairs well with fat removal of the midsection, or Tummy Tuck surgery. Expert sculpting can create an hourglass figure or the appearance of sculpted muscle in patients who previously lacked this ideal fat placement ratio.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Buttock Enhancement covered by insurance?
Buttock Enhancement is considered an elective procedure. While Dr. Kristin Boehm understands the procedure may be important to a patient’s self-esteem, it will not likely be deemed medically necessary by carriers.
How long does it take to undergo Buttock Enhancement?
Depending on the patient’s requests and the ease of the procedure, Buttock Enhancement can require approximately 4 hours of the surgeon’s time. Patients must factor in the initial Liposuction, which can be thought of as the first of a two-part procedure.
What type of anesthesia is used during Buttock Enhancement?
Brazilian Butt Lift is most commonly performed under general anesthesia.
How long do the results of Buttock Enhancement last?
The harvested fat that is redistributed to the buttocks can remain indefinitely, though there are some things to consider. Typically, about 60% of the fat that is injected will stay in place. The doctor may opt to overfill the area for this reason, or perform the procedure a second time for the most benefit. The fat will also react the way the existing adipose tissue does, and may fluctuate with weight gains and losses.
