While weight loss patients are successfully seeing pounds shed from a result of lap-band, post-Bariatric and other popular weight loss surgeries, the results of the rapid loss leaves many patients with little to no volume in buttocks area. The lack of volume in this area can be drastic and leave many weight loss patients feeling self-conscious and unhappy about the surgery.
The surgery to add volume back to the buttocks area is not cheap. U.S. Surgeons are charging on average $8,000 (USD) for the procedure which is not covered by medical insurance. As a result, more after weight loss patients are turning to travel tourism options to get the surgery done for a fraction of the cost.
Dr. Alejandro Quiroz, M.D. of CosMed Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico has seen a dramatic increase in patients from U.S. and Canada requesting the buttock augmentation, fat transfers and Brazilian butt lift surgeries.
“Brazilian butt lifts have been very popular for women wanting to get a shapelier look like J Lo or Shakira. But now, I am seeing more and more weight loss patients come to the clinic, because they are unhappy with how flat their buttocks have become as a result of a weight loss procedure they had in the States,” explained Dr. Quiroz, a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who is licensed in both the United States and Mexico.
U.S. and Canadians looking for affordable cosmetic surgery options are traveling to Mexico to request one of the two primary surgeries that can enlarge and lift buttocks.
Brazilian Butt Lift: Fat injections or fat transfer to the butt
CosMed Clinic is a Tijuana plastic surgery clinic that performs a procedure called fat grafting or fat transfer. Fat is removed by liposuction from elsewhere on your body, appropriately prepared and then injected into your buttocks, creating fuller and shapelier buttocks. A butt lift removes excess skin that has developed as a result of weight loss, aging, and gravity. The results of a buttock lift will be improved thigh contour and a more flattering and toned behind.
Butt Implants: Insertion of silicone implants
Buttocks implants provide a solution for those who desire enlarged or more defined behind. A wide variety of implants in various shapes and sizes are available; in soft silicone with a naturally firm look and feel. This procedure generally takes about two hours, under general anesthesia, and in conjunction with liposuction for dramatic results.
