The Brazilian Buttlift surgery is a form of buttock augmentation that not only reshapes but enhances the size of a patient’s buttocks. It continues to increase in popularity as more people desire a more youthful and fuller backside. According to statistics from American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), buttock augmentation increased by 86% in 2014 and by 21% in 2015.
Dr. Clyde Ishii, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Honolulu, HI, explains how facelift surgery techniques have evolved and what fat grafting can do to enhance the results.
Dr. Ishii explains that historically, facelifts were performed by elevating the skin off the underling muscles, pulling the skin back. He cautions against using the skin as a vehicle to lift fat.
Advances in procedure techniques are not the only thing attracting new patients to plastic surgery. Software imaging technology is changing the way plastic surgeons are able to communicate with their patients in terms of their expectations and what they desire from their surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Constantino Mendieta, based in Miami, FL discusses how this imaging software is changing the plastic surgery landscape.
