Brazilian Buttocks Lift/Augmentation
If you want to enlarge or re-shape your buttocks and have discovered that they do not respond to diet or exercise, buttock augmentation may be the solution you’ve been looking for. A buttock augmentation or buttock lift contours the buttocks and compensates for low amounts of fat in the area. Women and men who enlarge their bottoms can enjoy a more voluptuous and perky profile.
A buttock lift can be done by lifting the buttock, sculpting it with liposuction, enlarging it with implants or fat, or any combination of the three. The type of surgery performed will depend on the new look you desire. Buttocks surgeries take into consideration the size, shape and skin quality of your buttock, as well as the qualities that you desire after surgery. A lift is most often recommended after a large amount of weight loss, when there may be loose or excess skin.
Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer (“Brazilian Butt Lift”)
Buttock augmentation with fat transfer, also known as the Brazil Butt Lift in honor of the country in which it was developed, involves two steps. First, the patient’s own fat is collected through liposuction. The most popular areas for liposuction before buttock augmentation are the lower back, waist, flanks (love handles), thighs and stomach. This not only provides the raw material for buttock enhancement, it also contours the areas around the buttocks for a more dramatic result. The liposuctioned fat is then purified in a special process so that the best fat is ready to be reintroduced to the body.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
After substantial weight loss, weight gain or simply from the effects of aging, skin on the upper arms can become inelastic, loose and flabby. Arm lifts, also known as brachioplasty, remove that excess skin and fat. Patients who have significant amounts of fat may want to consider combining the procedure with liposuction.
Many women suffer from enlarged labia minora (the inner genital lips). Labiaplasty reduces large labia or reshapes uneven labia, improving their appearance and reducing associated discomfort. During the labiaplasty procedure, Dr. Ganchi trims excess labial tissue and recreates the edges of the labia with a natural-looking color and shape.
As we age, the skin on our hands can change just as much as the skin on our face, resulting in thinner, sagging skin and an increased visibility of the tendons and veins. Hand rejuvenation is a restorative treatment that combines skin fillers such as Restylane Lyft and Radiesse and native fat with laser treatments such as Fraxel® to replace lost volume and improve the overall appearance of the hand.
The skin of the hand is first injected with a biocompatible filler that stimulates collagen production and thickens the skin, making tendons and veins less visible. Desired results can usually be achieved after a series of two to three treatments spaced six weeks apart. Laser treatments work with the filler to improve the texture of the skin while also removing sun spots and other unwanted blemishes. A series of four laser treatments spaced a month apart can help patients see significant results.
