Dr. Summers, at his Maryland Plastic Surgery facility, helps Baltimore, Maryland buttock lift patients enhance their figures with a buttock lift procedure. Below you will find an explanation of the different types of procedures in addition to a list of frequently asked questions.
There are three different methods of recontouring the buttock: liposuction, buttock implants and fat transfer.
Brazilian Buttock Lift
For Dr. Summers’ buttock lift Maryland patients, liposuction can recontour the buttocks and, when properly performed, will even cause the buttocks to rotate upward slightly. For these patients in Maryland, implants or fat transfers are frequently requested to obtain a more prominent buttock.
Due to the high rate of potential complications associated with buttock implants, Dr. Summers recommends fat transfers instead. Fat transfers involve the removal of fat from other areas (e.g. abdomen, thighs, hips), purification of the fat, and reinjection of the fat into the buttock region. This technique has become known as the “Brazilian Butt Lift”.
After undergoing the Brazilian butt lift in Maryland, patients enjoy youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile. The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the buttocks appear lifted and perky. The resulting effect is that the woman appears more attractive and sensuous.
In addition to the buttock lift procedure, Dr. Summers offers other body contouring procedures at his Baltimore plastic surgery center. Please visit these pages to learn about how Dr. Summers helps Baltimore liposuction, tummy tuck, and body lift patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
It is a relatively common practice for Dr. Summers to perform multiple procedures during one operation at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. This allows Dr. Summers to better “sculpt” your final appearance. In addition, having several procedures done simultaneously saves you the expense of paying the operating room and anesthesia costs more than once.
During your consultation we will discuss your desired changes and expectations, review your medical history and current health, and make an assessment on whether the procedure(s) in question are right for you. This is a good time to ask specific questions about the procedure so that you are fully prepared, mentally and emotionally, for surgery. We will discuss the results that can be achieved, with the aid of photos and/or computer imaging. When a final decision is made, you will need to sign an informed consent stating that you are fully aware and understand what is entailed by your pending operation, including the potential complications and secondary effects.
After a Brazilian Butt Lift, patients are instructed to wear their post-operative compression garment at all times for the next three weeks. The garment helps to contour the body and speeds the resolution of swelling. It is important to avoid sitting directly on the augmented buttocks for the first three weeks after surgery.
The actual length of recovery varies with each buttock lift Maryland patient. Bruises usually disappear within a week or so, and the majority of swelling is gone in 6-8 weeks. If you follow our post-operative instructions carefully, you will be able to enjoy your normal activities within no time. The image-enhancing effects of plastic surgery become more evident over time with certain procedures taking up to a year for your body to fully adjust and settle into its new look. When you come in for your consultation we can discuss your expected recovery period and any post-operative instructions in detail.
The type of the anesthesia varies baed on the extent of the procedure. For extensive procedures, Dr. summers will recommend that patient have a general anesthetic. For minor procedures and “touch up” procedures, patients may elect to have IV sedation or local only.
