Buttock Enhancement Philadelphia

Dr. Ryan Hoffman is highly experienced when it comes to buttock enhancement in Philadelphia.

The firm, high, rounded look of your butt can change as the years pass, beginning to flatten, droop and sag.

A less attractive behind can be genetic, the result of having children, due to aging, or come about after a significant loss of weight.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and only you know how you want your behind to look. You may want it to be athletic, petite and round, or plump, full, and impressive proportions. Whatever you have in mind as the ideal derriere, buttock enhancement can be the procedure that will help you achieve the look you want.

Types of Buttock Enhancement

Surgeons can perform a variety of types of buttock augmentation. The most permanent way to increase the size of the buttocks is with the use of a solid silicone buttock implant. Surgeons place these above the muscle through a well-concealed incision between the buttocks.

The other method of enlarging the buttock involves liposuction from another area and transferring the fat to the buttocks. Plastic surgeons can combine these two procedures to achieve even better results.

During your buttock augmentation consultation with Dr. Hoffman, he will listen to your specific goals and desires. He will then choose the best technique to give you the enhancement you envision.

The Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) offers butt enhancement and body-contouring results. Because of this, people often call it a two-in-one procedure. At the start, Dr. Hoffman uses liposuction to remove excess fat from a trouble area like the back, thighs, or abdomen. He then purifies this fat to remove any unnecessary materials. Finally, Dr. Hoffman injects the purified fat into the buttocks at various depths for even results.

After the BBL procedure, around 60 percent of the fat typically survives and thrives in its new location. Like all fat, it can grow or shrink with weight fluctuations.

Buttock Implants

Buttock implants are an ideal option for patients who do not have enough excess fat to transfer for a Brazilian butt lift. These prosthetic implants create permanent volume and curve. The surgical process involves administration of anesthesia and creation of a pocket in the tissues to house the implant. Once Dr. Hoffman has correctly positioned the implants, he will close the incisions with sutures.

Buttock Enhancement Q&A

Am I a good candidate for buttock enhancement?

Answer: The best candidates for buttock augmentation are in good overall health, have no post-procedure healing problems, and are non-smokers. Smoking can prolong the recovery process and cause complications. Smokers must quit several weeks before the date of the procedure and must continue to avoid smoking during recovery.

Patients with a stable body weight are ideal candidates for buttock enhancement. All patients who are bothered by the size, symmetry, roundness, or shape of their butt are good candidates.

Candidates should be prepared to deal with the recovery process and must have realistic expectations in terms of results.

What can I expect during my consultation?

Answer: Here at Main Line Institute of Plastic Surgery, your consultation will be personally handled by Dr. Ryan Hoffman. He will start by inquiring about your goals and concerns. By evaluating your medical records and conducting a physical examination, he will determine your ideal buttock enhancement options.

He will create a customized buttock enhancement plan based on your goals. Along with answering all of your questions, he will properly explain every detail of the treatment plan. This may include the preparation, procedure details, recovery, and cost. He will show you photos of potential results so you can make a confident decision.

What type of liposuction is done during a Brazilian butt lift?

Answer: Tumescent liposuction is used for a BBL. During the procedure, tumescent fluid is injected into the region through tiny incisions. This fluid contains epinephrine, saline, and local anesthetic. It makes the fat swell for easier removal and also limits bleeding.

Dr. Hoffman then inserts a cannula. This loosens the stubborn fat from the surrounding tissues. The doctor removes the fat cells with the cannula through vacuum suction.

Dr. Hoffman performs S.A.F.E. liposuction. This technique is a preferred way to help avoid irregularities of the skin and mild contour deformities.

How long will it take for a buttock enhancement procedure?

Answer: A BBL procedure will usually take two to four hours to complete. A buttock augmentation with implants may take around two hours to finish. The exact duration will depend on the surgical plan.

What is butt augmentation recovery like?

Answer: The healing and recovery process varies depending on the type of buttock enhancement you receive. Dr. Hoffman will provide you with recovery instructions to aid the healing process. Generally, swelling and bruising are common but will fade in time. Proper incision care is vital to prevent infection. Medications such as antibiotics, pain medications, stool softeners, and medications to prevent blood clots may be recommended to make the recovery process more comfortable for you.

Showering may not be allowed for 24 to 48 hours. You will not be able to sit directly on your buttocks until cleared, and you will need to take time off from your job. You will need to sit on a pillow or sleep on your stomach for a certain period. Physically taxing activities must be avoided while you heal.
