The practice of gluteoplasty – the cosmetic augmentation and/or reshaping of the human buttocks also sometimes referred to as the “Brazilian butt lift” – employs two primary techiques, synthetetic implants and injections of fatty tissue from elsewhere in the body of the patient. As practiced by a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, MD, FICS, FACS, aka “Dr. J.” buttocks injections are a reliable procedure that can be used in conjunction with other techniques, such as liposuction, in order to achieve the patient’s desired result in terms of appropriately shaped and attractive hindquarters.
Since they are comprised of fat from the patient’s own body, buttocks injections are means of introducing own body fat to the buttocks. The fat is taken from unwanted areas, such as the tummy, back, sides, and transferred to the buttocks. The specific recovery details are different for each procedure involving buttocks injections and butt implants. However, patients are typically able to return home the day of the operation and resume normal work activities within approximately two weeks. Antibiotics and pain medications are typically prescribed as part of the recuperation process.
A double-board certified plastic surgeon and one of the most admired practitioners in the Los Angeles area, Dr. J. is known for combining his vast technical skills as a surgeon with the touch of an artist. He is well experienced in such leading edge techniques as rapid recovery breast augmentation as well as the full range of available buttock shaping and contouring procedures.
