Butt lift is a procedure that lifts the behind and fills it out to make it more attractive looking with a technique that enhances a women’s bottom in a way that diet and exercise cannot. To obtain the beautiful results, fat may be injected into the backside or implants made of silicone can be placed under the skin in the area to increase the size of the butt.
Dr. Donald Roland, M.D., F.A.C.S. offers buttock augmentation at his practice in New York City. This talented doctor is highly experienced and accomplished in what he does, so you can be sure you will be happy with his work.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Fat transfer is a popular method used to augment the butt. This butt augmentation procedure is also referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift. With this two-step procedure, liposuction is performed on fatty parts of the body like the flanks and thighs to obtain enough fat for the buttocks.
After this fat is processed, Dr. Roland proceeds to the second step. In the second half of the procedure, the processed fat is injected into different areas of the buttocks. Multiple injections are made to evenly distribute the fat and create a natural and attractive look. When the injections are administered, particular attention is paid to the top area of the butt to give the butt lift and make it more youthful looking.
Fat transfer is favored over implants for augmentation of the butt because the possibility of infection is not as high as it is with implants and the results are more natural looking. Although fat transfer is favored over implants, implants are typically suggested by the doctor when the person going for butt augmentation does not have enough body fat to inject into the buttocks.
The butt implants Dr. Roland uses for butt lift are made of silicone. They are soft, and they feel natural. Their measurements, as well as their structure, varies so that the best fitting implants can be selected for the individual patient. Once the appropriate implants are chosen, they are inserted into the gluteal area. Since care is taken to keep them away from bone and nerves, they feel comfortable. Implants make the butt look round and firm and very attractive. After insertion of the implants, you will not see any incision marks that were made during the surgical procedure because the incisions will be hidden between the butt cheeks. General anesthesia is used to perform this two-hour procedure. The results are amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions about Butt lift
Should I have a butt augmentation?
If you are not happy with the way your backside looks, if your butt sags or lacks volume, buttocks implant may be right for you. Some individuals are self-conscious about their behind and avoid being seen in a bathing suit or other revealing clothing. Butt implants can help. Whether you are a model, a housewife, or a father, butt augmentation can give you the fabulous-looking butt you want. It can boost your confidence and make you feel like a million dollars at the same time.
What should I do and what should I expect as I heal from butt augmentation?
After you have a fat transfer or implant procedure done, you will have to make every effort to keep pressure off of your behind. At this time of healing, it is important that you refrain from doing any strenuous activity. You should take it easy as you recover. How you sit and sleep is important while your body is in the healing stage, so there should be no sitting for extended periods of time, and there should be no sleeping on your back for 14 to 21 days. Since there may be some swelling after having butt augmentation, expect to wear support garments to limit the extent of the swelling. Bruising and discomfort should also be expected.
How long will I be out of work after butt lift?
After 14 days, you should be able to go back to your job like the majority of people who have this procedure done. You should be able to engage in all your regular activities in a month. All swelling should be gone by day 42.
Are there any risks of scars involved with butt lift surgery?
Because the incisions made during butt lift surgery using the implant method are placed in the crease of the buttocks, you will not see any incision scars. What you will see is a beautiful backside that is more fully rounded and lifted. If you had butt augmentation using the fat transfer method, your figure will appear to be more balanced since fat from certain areas of your body was extracted and injected into your buttocks. Usually, the areas the doctor chooses to take the fat from have an overabundance of fat that makes the body look out of proportion. After using the fat transfer method of butt augmentation, the end result will be an attractive figure that is well proportioned.
I am now 7 weeks post op and really can't describe in words how pleased I am with my results so far. Dr. Roland is by far the kindest, smartest, and most up to date plastic surgeons I’ve encountered. I visited 8 surgeons before him and was never pleased. I believe a plastic surgeon is somebody you must connect with and trust. I was lucky enough to have my personal trainer recommended Dr. Roland to me, after one of her clients got a boob job from him…(the best boob job she’s ever seen mind you, and she’s seen a lot)…so she sent me to him, and I knew right away…all of the other doctors made me feel rushed, and uncomfortable whereas Dr. Roland, not only listened to my concerns, but made me feel comfortable about the procedure, and about him doing an impeccable job (which he did)
Now, I’ve done plenty of research, and have seen pictures of peoples before and after and nothing, in true honesty, can compare to what was done to me. My scar is virtually invisible…YES! at 7 wks!!…my trainer said it looks as though a professional seamstress sewed me back together.
ALL in ALL… look no further… you’ll find no better staff, or doctor…hes the only plastic surgeon’s office I visited that ALWAYS has somebody ahead of me, and a few people behind me…and as annoying as it might be to wait a few extra minutes….you know it's a good sign that many people are there.
If you have any reservations, take it from a person who is probably as concerned, or more, with results as you are, who did hours of research and visited a slew of very “upper east sidey” plastic surgeons... it really doesn't get better than Dr. Roland…
Since surgery is involved with butt augmentation, fat transfer as well as implants come with potential risks like nerve damage, muscle damage, and infection. The anesthesia that is administered during this type of surgery can trigger an adverse reaction. Although unusual, another possible risk is that the implants may shift. If the implants do move out of their original position, another surgery may be needed to move them back to where they were first placed.
