Buttock Enhancement After Massive Weight Loss

Most weight loss patients present with lower body rolls and buttock deflation and sagging. The buttocks become deflated, broad, and sag over the upper thigh region on the back. They also lose projection and roundness. A number of procedures have been developed by Dr. Siamak Agha and other post bariatric plastic surgeons to optimize the shape and projection of the buttocks in the weight loss patients. Most of these procedures lift the buttock region and enhance the buttock projection and shape.

Buttocks Reduction and Lift

Some patients wish to have smaller buttocks. For larger reductions, a Brazilian buttock lift together with buttock reshaping will usually be needed. This requires a plastic surgeon who has an excellent knowledge of woman proportions, an artistic eye, and a keen three-dimensional sense. Like all buttock enhancement surgeries, a buttock reduction and lift truly requires a very customized strategy. During this procedure, Dr. Siamak Agha removes the excess skin and tissue of the upper buttock region and lower back. Dr. Agha will then lift the buttock tissue to a predetermined position on your lower back and will reconstruct the V-shaped depression between the buttock and the back that is a recognized aesthetic feature. Dr. Siamak Agha will also reshape the buttock form into a rounder shape. In certain cases, a buttock reduction and lift can flatten the buttock mound. Dr. Siamak Agha will restore buttock projection in these cases by use of fat micrografts or other buttock reshaping strategies.

Buttock Augmentation and Lift

For other weight loss patients, the buttocks are loose and severely deflated. A combination of buttock lift, buttock augmentation, and reshaping will serve these patients the best. This procedure involves creation of pockets under the buttock regions to accommodate for the lower back tissue that is turned under (as flaps) to augment the buttocks. In this manner, moderate degrees of buttock augmentation can be performed. The buttocks are then lifted to a predetermined position on the lower back to reconstruct the V-shaped demarcation. This is a rather complex surgery that truly requires enhanced training in Plastic Surgery. This procedure is most often done in conjunction with a lower body lift. Dr. Siamak Agha performs his own signature buttock reshaping procedure that combines many of the procedures listed here.

Buttock Lipoaugmentation

Dr. Siamak Agha employs buttock lipoaugmentation to sculpt, contour, and project the buttock regions appropriately. This procedure is designed to fill the buttocks so that the final overall shape is a lifted and rounded contour. It involves harvesting your own body's fat from the flanks, hips, lower back, thighs, or abdomen and transferring it into the buttock tissue. Because the areas receiving liposuction are now leaner and sculpted, the round full buttocks will become the beautiful highlight of your sensuous new shape. You must have some fat and muscle already present in your buttock to serve as a foundation for the grafted fat to be placed into and grow into. Dr. Siamak Agha removes fat from selected areas of your body with very gentle liposuction to protect the living fat cells. The liposuctioned fat is then washed with antibiotic solution, processed, and carefully injected into the buttocks as small droplets or a micrograft. During this fat micrografting process, the buttocks can be contoured to the desired shape and size. The fullness and projection of the buttocks can be greatly increased by layering many fine layers of fat micrografts throughout the buttock region.
