Buttock Augmentation is also known informally as fat transfer, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), or by the medical name Gluteoplasty. In this procedure, Dr. Zuckerman will take fat from a donor site on your body by performing liposuction, and he then reuses the fat in the buttock. The fat can be taken from the flanks, hips, or abdomen. Dr. Zuckerman purifies the fat from the donor site to remove any liquids to provide more concentrated fat for injecting the buttock. After the purification process, Dr. Zuckerman then injects the fat into the desired areas. The amount of fat that Dr. Zuckerman will graft to the buttocks depends on your desired level of augmentation. Dr. Zuckerman is an expert in this procedure and can achieve beautiful results with small augmentations and large, grafting over one liter of fat to each buttock for some patients. He uses the latest surgical equipment to maximize the amount of fat that can be grafted from that harvested including a Wells John High Volume Precision Auto-Graft System. This machine allows liposuction, purification of the suctioned fat, and fat grafting to be performed with a single closed system. It eliminates any loss of harvested fat, custs operative time in half, and is more sanitary than older, more traditional methods. The only incisions from this procedure are poke holes on the abdomen for the liposuction procedure, and poke holes above and below the buttock for the fat grafting portion. These typically heal to very small, almost invisible, dots.
An alternative procedure that Dr. Zuckerman also performs is buttock augmentation via buttock implants. He strongly prefers the more “natural” solution with grafted fat, but if you lack sufficient donor fat, he will discuss augmentation via implants with you at your cosmetic surgery consultation.
Typical buttock augmentation surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, and can last from three to six hours. This procedure can be performed at Dr. Zuckerman’s state-of-the-art operating room located inside his office in midtown Manhattan. This operatory has been recognized as facilities that employ the highest standard of care, and has been certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). A private facility such as Dr. Zuckerman’s is not available from all plastic surgery practices. It guarantees Dr. Zuckerman’s patients the highest levels of privacy and convenience.
