The Goal of Brazilian Butt Enhancement Surgery and Dr. Mentz’s Innovative Butt Grafting Machine
What is a Buttocks Lift / Buttocks Augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift)?
Shapely, perky buttocks are a key characteristic of an attractive, youthful figure. Unfortunately, as a result of aging, gravity, pregnancy, genetics, and / or large weight loss, the buttocks often develop a sagging, flattened appearance that lacks roundness and definition. Buttocks lift surgery gives the buttocks a firmer, lifted appearance through techniques to remove excess skin and tighten sagging skin and tissues.
Buttocks Lift and Augmentation Procedure
A buttocks lift is most often combined with butt augmentation using fat grafting (Brazilian Butt Lift) to improve the contour of the buttocks. In some cases, butt augmentation, alone, can be all that is needed to give the buttocks a more lifted appearance, through fat grafts to add volume to the upper portion of the buttocks. The combined procedures provide the following benefits:
- Tighten and lift sagging buttocks
- Improve the projection and contour of flat buttocks
- Enhance the flattering fit of of your clothes so you can wear jeans, swimsuits and shorts and other fitted attire with confidence
- Dr. Mentz’s advanced fat grafting technique utilizes a special pump to speed and increase the volume of fat that can be added to buttocks in a single procedure so that a rounder contour can be achieved.
- Because fat grafts come from a patient’s own body, there is little to no chance of an allergic reaction
Buttocks enhancement surgery is frequently combined with other procedures to improve the body’s contour lines and proportions. This can include breast enhancement surgery to add lift and volume to the breasts, and body contouring procedures such as liposuction, a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and lower body lift.
Where Is The Procedure Performed?
Dr. Mentz performs all body contouring procedures at his private AAAASF-certified SurgiCentre facility in Houston, Texas, where you will be carefully monitored and cared for by a board-certified anesthesiologist and Dr. Mentz’s highly trained surgical staff.
Buttocks Lift and Augmentation Recovery
Following your surgery, Dr. Mentz may recommend an overnight stay in one of his SurgiCentre’s recovery suites, where you will be cared for by our highly-trained registered nursing staff. If you live within 20 miles of our facility, Dr. Mentz will offer a visit to your home by a plastic surgery nurse who is trained to assist you with your recovery. The nurse will monitor your recovery, change any dressings, assist you with your medication, and provide Dr. Mentz with an update on your condition.
You will experience bruising and swelling after a buttocks enhancement procedure. Ice packs are helpful to reduce swelling and discomfort. Much of the bruising and swelling will diminish within 2-3 weeks.
During the recovery process, it is important to take short walks. More strenuous activities and aerobic expercise may be resumed in 3-6 weeks or when Dr. Mentz advises. Most patients are able to return to work in approximately 1-2 weeks following surgery.
Why Choose Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz?
As the nation’s first triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Mentz is respected nationwide for his introduction of innovative liposuction and body contouring techniques. Dr. Mentz introduced a groundbreaking new method to improve buttocks augmentation surgery to the respected International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery at its 2010 meeting. The technique utilizes a special pump to speed the process and volume of fat that can be grafted into the buttocks, resulting in a fuller, more shapely contour than can be achieved through the more limited and cumbersome syringe method of fat grafting.
Dr. Mentz has presented his techniques to advance body contouring’s safety, recovery, and results through numerous presentations and publications for plastic surgeons. The ASAPS and Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation jointly awarded Dr. Mentz the “Best Journal Article of 2008” for his article which presented risk assessment for liposuction based upon a review of 3871 consecutive cases.
