Buttock Lift — Butt Lift
"I select only those surgeries that have a greater than 90% likelihood of a positive outcome. Period." — Dr. Bart Rademaker
Buttock Lifts are more popular than ever. Although there are a couple of techniques in play, Dr. Rademaker will only perform fat grafts and, increasingly, grafts with stem cell-infused fat for the best and longest lasting results. The butt is a large, dynamic area with a muscle that is very sensitive to pressure changes. Transferring your own soft adipose tissue works well, adding padding and lift in a relatively easy and safe way. While using fat alone will yield wonderful results, stem cell-enriched fat makes the graft last longer.
After careful study, Dr. Rademaker does not recommend implants or the surgical removal of tissue.
“Neither of those have good track records for good outcomes and happy people. With implants, you’re putting a relatively hard piece of material in an area that’s constantly moving, sitting standing, walking with all the associated stressors. There’s an increased risk of malposition, muscle atrophy, pain, infection and shifts in anatomical structures – bone and cartilage. With surgical excision, you actually cut and reposition the crease. It works for the rare patient but those aren’t the odds we’re going for. 90% is our threshold. It works for our patients and for us.”
