Thanks to “bootylicious” celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj, buttock augmentations have become the next big thing in plastic surgery. Don’t believe us? According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, approximately 11,000 patients in the U.S. underwent a buttock augmentation in 2013 compared to the 8,500 who did in 2012. Although breast augmentations reign as the “queen bee” of plastic surgery procedures each year, the 16 percent increase in butt augmentations undoubtedly show our nation’s desire to keep up with the Kardashians!
The team at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery provides procedures that help patients refine their breasts, body and face. From breast augmentations and belt lipectomies, to rhinoplasties and brow lifts, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa are your go-to doctors for aesthetic perfection.

Butt implants are one way to approach a buttock augmentation, but the newest procedure usually involves harvesting fat from other parts of the patients body and injecting it into areas of the buttocks to create a natural shape. Surgeons “harvest” the fat from the tummy, thighs or hips using liposuction, a procedure that requires a small tube (cannula) to suck-up underlying body fat through a small incision.
It’s important to seek a trained professional with experience in fat grafting and liposuction, like the Mosharrafa’s. There have been doctors in the past who have injected silicone and other materials into a patient’s buttocks, which resorted in serious infections and even death. Therefore, consult the plastic surgery experts Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa before going to non-professionals to save a few bucks.
If you chose to undergo this type of procedure, you can except to see results immediately after the surgery. However, the final effect could take about a year to see because not all of the fat survives the transfer. Nevertheless, the recovery period for this procedure is relatively short. You may want to discuss this with your surgeon, because down time can very from person to person, but usually a patient will be instructed to wear a Spanx-like garment for four to six weeks. If you have questions about this type of procedure, call Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery to set-up your consultation today!
