Buttock Contouring Transformation

It can be performed on patients who have lost a dramatic amount of weight or want to correct aesthetic issues of the buttocks. Buttock contouring in New Orleans involves enhancing the shape and size of the buttocks by removing excess fat, tightening loose skin and muscles, and lifting the tissues to create an appealing, youthful figure.

What is Buttock Contouring?

Buttock contouring is a figure-reshaping procedure that involves liposuction, fat transfer, and surgical lifting. Liposuction removes excess fat from the buttocks, upper thighs, or other areas with an excess. The extracted fat may be transferred to the upper section of the buttocks to add volume and lift. Surgical butt lifting is then performed to remove excess skin and tighten the underlying tissues to raise, sculpt, and reshape the buttocks.

Who is a Candidate for Buttock Contouring?

Several body issues make buttock contouring an appealing option, including:

  • Sagging skin and fat 
  • Flatter butt
  • Aging butt appearance, sagging
  • Age-related figure changes
  • Excess tissue, fat, and loose skin after weight loss
  • An unbalanced figure, with excessive volume at the buttocks

How is Buttock Contouring Performed?

After Weight Loss

The method of enhancement and procedures in custom buttock contouring will reflect the unique condition of the patient. Following a dramatic weight loss achieved with diet and exercise, bariatric surgery, or other weight-loss methods, many people are dismayed to be left with excess skin, tissue, and fat on the buttocks. To enjoy the full benefits of weight loss and a new figure, they undergo surgery to remove the excess and have the buttocks reshaped. With this approach, incisions are placed to remove excess fat and skin. Liposuction is typically one facet of the procedure. The buttocks are then lifted, reshaped, and tightened. Some patients add volume and shape with custom fat grafting.

For Figure Enhancement

In other cases, a patient wants to enhance the figure by reshaping, lifting, and augmenting the buttocks to create the perky look of a youthful, round butt. This procedure may involve removing any saggy skin or excess tissue, adding volume with fat transfer (Brazilian butt lift), and tightening the underlying muscles, for a more youthful, pleasing figure.

Is Buttock Contouring Right for Me?

Feeling confident in your own skin and knowing your figure is attractive can be life-changing. Good candidates for this procedure are generally healthy, don’t smoke, and are in a healthy weight range. For patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, buttock contouring is one of the final steps in the journey, removing all excess hanging skin, fat, and tissue for shapely buttocks that look tight, round, and lifted.

What is the Recovery Time After Buttock Contouring?

Each procedure is customized to match the patient, and recovery times can vary from person to person. Generally, it will require about two weeks for the initial healing period. During that time, no pressure can be placed on the buttocks, so sitting or lying on the back must be avoided. Once the initial healing stage is reached, the area can be protected by sitting on a special pillow. While the recovery will require several weeks to complete, the results make the process extremely rewarding – a beautiful, round, perfectly balanced butt, at last.
