What are Buttock Implants?

Butt Implants Reviews
"Body Makeover After Losing Half my Body Weight - Let me start by telling you my story. I was 296 lbs at my heaviest, then lost exactly half my body weight through weight loss surgery. No surprise, my body was covered in loose skin. I sought out Dr. Katzen who performed circumferential body lift, arm lift, breast augmentation with lift, and thigh lift. After all these surgeries, I thought I was done, but felt bothered with a flat butt. It actually hurts if I sit too long, I lost the fat in my buttock with the weight loss. I told Dr. Katzen I did not want a Kardashian butt, just give me enough for a nice rounded look. I had butt implants and I’m happy I did. It took some time to get used to it, but I adjusted well. Dr. Katzen rocks!"- C. / RealSelf / Apr 18, 2019
"Butt Implants, No more deflated and wrinkly butt - I was used to having a big butt until I lost a lot of weight. My butt just looked deflated and wrinkly. No pants, skirts or dresses looked good on me. I thought about having butt implants for a while but kept deciding against it. One day, I caught a glimpse of my reflection in a glass window and decided I wanted to go for it. I went to Dr. Katzen and was happy with the results he showed..."- D.R. / RealSelf / Apr 18, 2018
Men and women all across Beverly Hills, CA meet often with Dr. Katzen to gain more information about butt augmentation. The best candidates typically:
- Are in good overall health
- Have excellent elasticity in their skin
- Desire a curvier or fuller backside
- Have lost size because of major weight loss or increased age
- Are not ideal candidates for fat transfer procedures
Dr. Katzen provides a selection of various implant shapes and sizes to meet your expectations. Our patients typically prefer solid, silicone elastomer implants since they provide an organic look and feel. These details will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation where Dr. Katzen will be able to help you choose the implants that best complement your unique silhouette. On the day of your procedure, incisions will be meticulously made in the natural fold of the backside and your implants will be securely inserted. Next, the incision sites will be sutured and bandaged. Butt augmentation is usually an outpatient procedure and performed under general anesthesia, eliminating the need for overnight observation.
What to Expect
After your procedure, it is normal to feel discomfort and experience swelling and bruising for several days. Drains are often placed and will need to be worn for an entire week to allow blood and fluid to be properly expelled for maximum healing. Usually, patients can return to daily activities within 2 – 3 weeks but should refrain from strenuous exercise for at least six weeks. Dr. Katzen is highly skilled in the placement of implants for gluteal enhancement so patients are usually thrilled to find that their scars are nearly invisible. Since the incisions are placed discreetly in the natural crease of the buttocks, you can feel even more sexy and confident in your bikini knowing that your scars are not visible to the naked eye. To preserve results, you should continue your exercise regimen and healthy eating habits.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a buttock augmentation procedure cost?
The price of gluteoplasty with implants will vary based on several factors. During your initial consultation, a customized surgical plan will be made to match your needs and budget. J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills accepts several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing to make your procedure as affordable as possible.
Do buttock implants last longer than fat transfer?
In your initial consultation, the pros and cons of implants and a fat transfer will be reviewed by Dr. Katzen so you can decide which procedure is right, depending on your needs and wants. He will explain how you can sustain the outcomes of implants or a fat transfer so you can decide which procedure will be easier for you. For either option, it is important for you to stay at a steady weight after surgery.
Will weight gain affect my results?
Significant weight fluctuations can impact the results of your butt augmentation. The volume and shape of your buttocks can be altered through weight gain. Dr. Katzen suggests you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly in order to preserve the results of your gluteoplasty.
What can I expect during my recovery?
During the first few weeks after your augmentation procedure, you might feel moderate discomfort as you heal. You need to avoid strenuous physical activity until you have approval from Dr. Katzen. In addition, you will need to attend follow-up appointments during your recovery so that he can examine the implants to ensure you are healing correctly.
What is the difference between a buttock augmentation and a Brazilian butt lift?
While a buttock augmentation utilizes silicone implants, a BBL (Brazilian butt lift) uses fat transferred from a different area of the body to the buttocks. Ideal candidates for a Brazilian butt lift must have enough fat for transfer. If you don't have enough fat, buttock augmentation is your best choice.
