Dr Peter B Fodor | Buttock Augmentation

What is a Buttock Augmentation?

Men and women who are unhappy with the appearance of their “flat” buttocks may benefit from this operation. Even though the national statistics for buttock augmentation show that the actual number of these procedures as quite low nationwide, this operation is not that uncommon in Dr. Fodor’s practice. He performs buttock augmentation using two methods; implants and/or fat injections. The use of implants in Dr. Fodor’s practice is limited to those patients who do not possess sufficient amounts of donor fat to be transferred into the buttocks.

How is a Buttock Augmentation Performed?

Solid, silicone implants, unlike the ones used for breast augmentation, are inserted through a small incision at the crease between the buttocks. The scars are invisible. During your preoperative evaluation Dr. Fodor will choose the proper fit implant based on your desired results and the limitations of your anatomy.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Buttock Augmentation?

With regard to patients who Dr. Fodor determines have sufficient fat available, he prefers the transfer of fat from selected other body sites for the purposes of buttock augmentation, otherwise known as “The Brazilian Butt Lift.” For that matter, Dr. Fodor was able to perfect his technique during his many teaching trips to Rio de Janeiro and other parts of Brazil.

Usually a combination of several donor sites is needed to provide sufficient fat. These commonly include the abdomen, waist, hips, flanks and thighs. The fat is processed and Dr. Fodor injects it with a gentle technique, contouring a pleasant shape to the buttocks. There is generally minimal, if any pain and faster recovery with fat injections when compared to buttock implants. Most normal activities can be resumed within the first week.

Dr. Fodor also offers Breast Augmentation, Body Sculpting and Liposuction procedures for those seeking a more aesthetically pleasing physique.
