There’s a good reason that buttock augmentation through implants and fat transfers increased more than 25% in the United States in 2017: It works. As women and men alike aim for curvier profiles that fill out their clothes in just the right areas, the Brazilian butt lift has gained popularity. This is due in large part to its ingenious methodology of taking fat from one part of your body and putting it in another.

On the Upper East Side of New York City, Dr. Theodore Diktaban performs this simple procedure, helping his patients look great both coming and going.

If you’d like to explore why the Brazilian butt lift has such as a high satisfaction rate, here’s a review of the benefits.

Rounding things out

While much of plastic surgery on the body is aimed toward reducing certain areas, more men and women are turning to procedures that augment or enhance features that are meant to have a little more shape, namely breasts and buttocks.

The perfect, well-rounded butt is the stuff of legend and has long been revered as a sign of physical prowess in men and youthful perkiness and seduction in women. From Michelangelo’s famous “David” sculpture to the endless images of shapely women with well-endowed posteriors, the storied butt holds a special place in our visual history.

And little has changed over time. A high butt still speaks of vitality and vigor today, which is why so many men and women are turning to the Brazilian butt lift to correct the problem of proportion.

The double whammy

One of the best reasons to consider a Brazilian butt lift is that it kills two cosmetic birds with one stone. In order for Dr. Diktaban to enhance your butt, he takes fat from areas where you’re less excited about its presence, such as around your abdomen, thighs, hips, and back, and grafts it into the areas that could use a little boost.

Dr. Diktaban removes your fat through a simple liposuction procedure, where he loosens and suctions out your fat using a small tube, or cannula. After treating the fat, he re-injects it into your buttocks to provide volume, tone, and lift, giving you a hind end that fits better with your overall body shape, not to mention your youthful and spry spirit.

Little downtime

While the Brazilian butt lift requires that Dr. Diktaban perform two different procedures — the liposuction and the fat grafting — he does both on an outpatient basis, which means you’re free to return home afterward.

When you leave, we give you special compression garments to keep everything in place while your body goes to work to reform itself around your new shape. This process should only take a week or two. Once you remove your garments, your body is still slowly integrating the changes, and you should realize optimal results in 6-12 weeks.
