Breast augmentations and liposuction treatments have been popular for decades, however, BOTOX injections and Brazilian butt lifts are two newer cosmetic procedures that have skyrocketed in popularity over the last decade.

Butt Lift 101

Though rarely given the attention they deserve, the buttocks do their fair share for the body. These paired groups of gluteal muscles extend and rotate the hip, extend the trunk, allow one to sit down comfortably, and incidentally, help to accentuate one’s profile. Both men and women identify the butt as one of the top ten most attractive body parts. Healthy women near their ideal weight who are seeking a more hourglass shape are good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift in Los Angeles offered by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Jeffrey Hoefflin MD, FACS.

A Brazilian butt lift is a special buttock augmentation procedure that involves the transfer of fat from one or more areas of the body to the buttocks. The doctor harvests this fat by performing liposuction on parts of the patient’s body. Typically, the fat is taken from areas like the flanks, outer thighs, and the abdomen. This collected fat is then reprocessed and cleaned so it can be injected into sections of the buttocks that need augmentation or reshaping.

The Brazilian butt lift is a delicate operation, and some mild bruising and swelling around the buttocks and liposuctioned areas is common after the procedure. Patients are usually able to return to their normal routines about a week after surgery and will need to wear compression garments for up to a month after the procedure.

Intro to Botox

As people age, wrinkles appear on the face due to frequent facial movements such as smiles and frowns. Fortunately, a Los Angeles botox treatment can turn back the clock and help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and deep lines. Botox is a naturally-occurring substance that can suppress nerve impulses from reaching facial muscles, thereby keeping muscles relaxed and the skin on the face smooth. One reason Botox injections are popular is because they do not require any post-procedure recovery time.

When undergoing these or any other cosmetic procedure, it is advisable to seek a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Jeffrey Hoefflin. Dr. Hoefflin has experience performing many successful Brazilian butt lift procedures and countless BOTOX injections, as well as experience performing many other procedures to enhance the face, breasts, and body.
