Enhancing the Buttocks
Procedures have been available to enhance the buttocks. Historically, buttock implants were, and still are, used to add volume to this area. Although buttock implants are quite the rage in South America and some areas of the United States, the implant placement is not free of problems. The implants can be undesirably palpable and there are risks of developing fluid around the implants, as well as an infection. These problems would require removal of the implants. Many patients complain that the implants are hard and very uncomfortable to sit on. Another common complaint is the scars from the incisions required to place the implants- extending from the sacral area to the crease between the buttocks.
Another technique, which has been utilized at Destin Plastic Surgery for some time, is grafting of your own adipose (fat tissue) into the buttocks. This is a procedure that has become known by the popular name the "Brazilian Butt Lift." Although this procedure has been performed in the United States and Europe for many years, the Brazilians have popularized it. The name has a nice sound to it and brings up an image of thong-clad women walking along the beach in Rio de Janeiro.

Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The ideal person undergoing this procedure has a little excess adipose of the hips and thighs and/or abdomen. This adipose is removed using special techniques to maintain the viability of the adipose cells. The adipose cells are then grafted into the buttocks using special micro cannulas into the areas of "deficiency" and the areas to be "enhanced."
The combination of these two procedures, liposuction/fat harvesting and lipoinfiltration/fat grafting, achieves a 2-fold result: the hips, abdomen, and thighs are smaller and shapelier, and the buttocks are fuller and rounder.
All of our patients who have undergone this procedure remark how much better their clothes fit and how they can wear low-waisted slacks and jeans without having a "muffin top." Their buttocks fill out the seat of the pants much better. They also remark on the improved fit of their bathing suits. Ladies frequently tell us that their spouses and friends remark on how shapely they appear.
