To enhance the shape or size of the butt, you may want to consider a butt augmentation. Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery offers this procedure to residents of Houston, Sugar Land and Kerrville, TX.
What is a Butt Augmentation?
An emerging aesthetic trend in body contouring is a fuller, more shapely butt. This is not only an attractive feature but allows for better-fitting clothes and a bolstered self-esteem. A butt augmentation procedure can be performed to enlarge the buttocks and enhance its shape. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we specialize in many butt augmentation techniques. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will help you determine the best treatment option for you depending on your cosmetic goals.
How Much Does a Butt Augmentation Cost?
The cost of a butt augmentation with implants can range from $10,000 to $10,300, and other treatments can vary depending on the techniques used. During your consultation, Dr. Layton will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that matches your specific needs. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We also offer financing services to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is a Butt Lift?
A butt lift removes excess skin through an incision around the hip and above the buttocks. A butt lift can vastly improve body shape and form. If needed, a portion of this excess skin and fat can be left to provide an auto-augmentation to increase buttock volume while still lifting and removing excess skin and fat.
How is a Butt Augmentation Performed?
There are several options for butt augmentation, and each of these options offers a different treatment experience. At Layton Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we offer the following butt augmentation techniques:
Butt Augmentation via Implants —A butt augmentation using implants is similar to placing breast implants. All butt implants are made out of silicone, just like the popular breast implant material. During the procedure, an incision is made in the buttock crease between the two cheeks. A pocket for the implant is developed in the superficial muscle layers of each check of the buttock. The implants are then placed in the pockets and the skin is closed.
Butt Augmentation with Emsculpt® — Emsculpt® is the first and only non-surgical butt augmentation option. Emsculpt® uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy, or HIFEM® energy, to trigger muscle contractions in the treatment area. These rapid muscle contractions burn fat and strengthen the muscles, resulting in toning, firming, and growth in the weeks following treatment. For optimal results, we typically recommend a series of treatments. Emsculpt® requires no downtime, so it is a convenient option for most patients.
Butt Augmentation with Fat Injections — Fat injections are a popular butt augmentation procedure. This treatment is referred to as the Brazilian butt lift, and uses fat transfer techniques to remove fat from one area of the body and then inject it into the butt for enhanced size, shape, and lift. With this technique, we are able to enhance the butt while simultaneously shaping and contouring the surrounding area, which dramatically improves the buttock augmentation and highlights the newly shaped butt.
Butt Augmentation with Dermal Fillers — A non-surgical way to augment the butt is by injecting a dermal filler called Sculptra® into the butt. The material in Sculptra® causes your own tissue to be stimulated and produce natural volume. Sculptra® has proven to be a successful option for providing volume in the face and is now proving to be successful in augmenting the buttocks. This is done with in-office injections similar to dermal fillers and injectables, but may require several sessions to achieve the desired results.
How is Recovery After a Butt Augmentation?
The recovery after your butt lift or butt augmentation will depend on the treatment techniques involved. For more invasive treatments, patients may have to wear a compression garment for several weeks after treatment. Drains may also be necessary, but this will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Layton. Generally, patients will have to avoid sitting directly on the buttocks after their treatment in order to let it heal. This may require taking time away from work and other normal activities. Dr. Layton will provide you with specific recovery instructions during your consultation so that you are well-prepared.
