Buttock Enhancement Jacksonville
Buttock augmentation also known as buttock enlargement is a procedure in which the contour of the buttocks is reshaped either with an implant or with fat which is transferred from another part of the body “Brazilian Butt Lift”. Candidates for buttock augmentation are those requiring an enhancement in the size and shape of the buttocks and do not have any medical conditions that would prohibit the anesthesia required for a successful operation. During the initial consultation, an assessment of the contour of your buttocks and adjacent body areas will be made in addition to a review of your overall medical health. If you are a candidate for buttock augmentation, the next decision will be made between you and Dr. Hardy regarding the use of an implant or the transfer of fat.
For Buttock Augmentation with an implant, a specially designed implant made for this operation is placed in a position over the gluteus maximus muscle that gives an optimal shape to the buttocks. The position of the implant is a modern approach that places the implant below the connective tissue covering of the gluteus maximus muscle and above the muscle itself. A specially designed pain catheter is placed in order to dramatically minimize any discomfort and make the recovery period easily managed with medicines by mouth.
For Buttock Augmentation with fat transfer a.k.a. “Brazilian Butt Lift”, fat from other parts of the body is used to enhance the buttocks region. The fat is “harvested” from one part with the use of a special suction device and is then placed in areas that require more volume.
The main potential complication from buttock implant placement is infection. With proper compliance to postoperative instructions, the incidence of the potential problem is approximately 1%. The main potential problem with fat transfer is significant resorption of fat which can occur in approximately 30-40% of cases. There is no way to predict preoperatively which patients are likely to have this problem.
Dr. Hardy’s meticulous surgical technique and attention to detail help to maximize your surgical results and he and his team help to make this comfortable and enjoyable experience for all patients.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure where fat is taken from unwanted areas of the body and this fat is placed in the butt and hips to give a beautiful and shapely butt.
The size of the butt is tailored to the individual. A very large buttocks and hips can be made or a subtle change can be made to make it shapely without making it noticeable bigger.
Dr. Hardy does this procedure frequently and understands the desires of all types of women who need this procedure.
“Essential to a beautiful butt is the shape of the small of the back and waist in addition to the added volume to the butt. Dr. Hardy has patients that want a voluptuous and ethnic butt and those that want to look hot in yoga pants with a round perky, “bubble” or “beach” butt and minimal hips. The key is understanding what the individual wants and having the ability to deliver on those expectations.”
The Brazilian butt lift requires a significant amount of specialized expertise to shape the butt with fat cells that will live when being moved to their new location, the ability to perform expert liposuction in the areas where fat is removed along with the artistic and cultural knowledge to perform the procedure specific to the woman’s needs.
The technique that Dr. Hardy uses to process fat insures a very high percentage of fat take which assures extremely reliable fat take when transferred.
The doctor performs his procedures in a private state accredited surgical facility with a staff that not only caters to the patient’s needs but also is trained to assist in the surgery and postoperative care from a specialist stand point.
