Although Breast Augmentation with Silicone or Saline Implants is still the most popular procedure in plastic surgery, followed by Liposuction and the Tummy Tuck; the Brazilian Buttock Lift was also a big hit at our latest body contouring seminar. Many patients like the idea of using their own body fat to augment the buttock area. Adding volume and shape creates a more curvaceous look and, “Yes” it can be performed with the Tummy Tuck. As Dr. Togba explained, fat grafting has been performed in plastic surgery for more than 30 years; however, the Brazilian Buttock Lift has become popular in the United States in the last 5 years. Patients were surprised to find out from Dr. Togba that the most important aspect of this procedure is not only adding fat to the buttock area, but also using liposuction to contour around the buttock, particularly, the lower back and waistline to give that desired inverted heart shape that many are now wanting.
Join us at our next “Mommy Makeover” seminar to find out how to regain and reclaim your shape after childbirth, lift and add fullness to breasts, and remove unwanted excess skin to contour the abdomen and waistline.
Our last seminar was filled to capacity, so don’t delay; call Melody for your R.S.V.P. (510) 763-2525.
