Buttocks Shaping in Charlotte

If you are interested in improving your silhouette from behind, buttocks shaping in Charlotte may be right for you. The shape, size, and curves of your backside can be improved to bring it into better proportions to match your body and give you the curves you are looking for. Body sculpting surgery can help where exercise leaves off since there are no exercises that will decrease the amount of skin you have, and stubborn fat deposits can remain even after the most intense workout regimen.

Everyone is built differently and has their own aesthetic goals, so your surgery is personalized for you. You may want a butt lift to address your sagging buttocks, or you might want to increase the size of your backside with implants or fat grafting. Of course, you may want both less sagging and a larger butt. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Ditesheim, will use his years of experience and training to create the changes you are looking for to achieve your dream figure.

Traditional Butt Lift

Sometimes, gravity has taken its toll, and you may notice that your buttocks appear to be sagging and drooping. Aging, significant decreases in weight, and genetic factors can all affect how your buttocks age. If this is your main problem, you should consider a butt lift (gluteal lift). It will improve the shape and tone of your buttock tissues while removing excess skin and fat. Overall, you will see tighter, smoother buttock contours after this procedure. This surgery alone does not increase the size of your buttocks, but with the improved position of tissue, you may feel as though your buttocks have increased in size.

A butt lift is extensive and can take several hours. This buttocks shaping surgery is done under general anesthetic at our Charlotte clinic. You will see results immediately, but it could take three to six months to see the full effect. Incisions can be placed in areas that will not be very noticeable, such as along the line between your buttocks and thighs.

Recovery from a butt lift can be tricky because you need to avoid putting pressure on the surgical site. A large number of pillows will help as you need to prop yourself into good positions that guard against damage to your healing tissues. A compression garment will help reduce swelling and promote tight skin healing. You will require time off work and help from family and friends. It can take several months before you fully heal from the procedure.

As long as you maintain a healthy weight, the results of a butt lift can be permanent. If you are overweight, the results may fade over time.

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

While butt lift is in the name of this procedure, it is not like a traditional buttock lift. A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is the term that refers to a fat grafting procedure to increase the volume of your buttocks. If you are not having problems with sagging skin, this surgery may be what you are looking for to improve your buttock contours. You can increase shape and size if you are worried about having less (or more) on one side. If you have good skin elasticity, the final result will be a smooth, toned posterior that will be shapely and appear lifted.

This butt sculpting procedure in Charlotte can be a win-win for you in that you can have excess fat removed from a body area of your choosing that is then used to increase the volume of your buttocks. We can remove fat from your hips, waist, abdomen, or thighs. This fat is then purified for transfer back into your buttocks. Multiple small injections of this fat are made as Dr. Ditesheim carefully places the fat to create the look you desire.

Recovery from a BBL can take about six weeks. You need to try to avoid putting pressure on your buttocks to give the fat time to settle in properly. It takes several months to see the final results of the procedure. Time off work is necessary unless you can effectively work from home.

Buttock Augmentation With Implants

Some people do not have enough fat safely available to use for a BBL. If this describes you, and you want to increase the size of your backside, you can choose to have buttock augmentation using silicone implants.

During this butt shaping procedure, a silicone implant that is made specifically for the buttocks is positioned deep into your gluteal muscle or above your gluteal muscle on each side. Recovery from this surgery is about the same as our other buttock surgeries in Charlotte.
