Butt Augmentation Los Angeles: When are Gluteal Implants preferred over fat transfer?

Posted By

Dr Dass Butt Augmentation In Los Angles
Gluteal implants (butt implants) are used to augment and reshape the buttock. Women with smaller frames are typically good candidates for buttock implants because they do not have enough fat to undergo a Brazilian Butt Lift, ie a fat transfer procedure to the buttock. Medium and larger framed patients typically like the fat transfer to the butt because they get the added benefit of liposuction to contour the waist. In large frames patients, the implant is typically not going to reshape the buttock, and is at risk of looking somewhat abnormal. The recovery from a buttock implant is sometimes quicker. Most patients are able to sit right away after buttock implant surgery because the implant sits higher than the buttock bone.

Gluteal implants are solid silicone. This differs from silicone breast implants, which are made of a cohesive gel. That means that the gluteal implants are firm, whereas the breast implants are soft. Solid gluteal implants are ideal because they cannot leak, or rupture, and are therefore very durable. The buttock will still feel natural, but toned like someone that exercises a lot.

Butt implants are available in a variety of different shapes and sizes. This allows the ability to customize the augmentation for each individual patient. For example, women with shorter height butts typically need round implants, while taller butts need more of an oval shaped implant. Once you are sized, the appropriate size and shape implant will be ordered specifically for you.

Certain clothes tend to fit better when the buttock is more shapely. Women state that their self-confidence is improved after surgery. Buttock augmentation (with implants) is a great option for petite women that are interested in having the curves that they have always wanted.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
