A butt lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to improve the appearance of the buttocks. During this procedure, Dr. Katzen can remove any excess fat and skin and lift, tighten and sculpt the buttocks. A butt lift can be done on its own or in conjunction with another type of procedure.
What Happens During a Butt Lift? A butt lift is an outpatient procedure that is performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art surgical suite. The patient will be put under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Katzen can remove excess skin and fat. He might perform liposuction to remove the fat. Dr. Katzen divides patient’s buttocks into four categories depending on the ratio of excess fat to excess skin. Type 1 buttocks, for example, have excess fat but no excess skin. Type 2 buttocks have a lot of excess skin and a small amount of excess fat. Type 3 buttocks have both excess fat and skin. Type 4 buttocks have excess skin and too little fat. As you can imagine, the techniques used during your butt enhancement procedure will depend on a number of factors, including your goals, as well as the type of buttocks that you have. During a consultation, Dr. Katzen can review all of your options with you. Keep in mind that recovery from a butt lift procedure generally takes multiple weeks. Once you have fully recovered, you can really enjoy the results of the procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate? The ideal candidate for a butt lift will be somebody who has both realistic expectations and good overall health. They should neither smoke nor drink to excess, for both of those habits can interfere with the healing process. They also need to be at a stable and healthy weight, for weight fluctuations will affect the results of the surgery.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift? A Brazilian butt lift is actually a type of butt augmentation that involves taking body fat from one area and transferring it to the buttocks. This procedure may or may not be used during your butt lift surgery. It all depends on your unique situation.
