About Butt Augmentation
For anyone in Northwest Nevada and Northeast California who is tired of doing squats and lunges without enough improvement to the shape of their butt, Charles P. Virden, MD offers butt augmentation surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Virden uses 2 different techniques for butt augmentation: butt implants and Brazilian butt lift. For patients with excess fat in other areas of the body, the Brazilian butt lift uses liposuction to remove fat from the patients and then re-inject the purified fat into the buttock (cheek) area. The Brazilian butt lift does not lift the position of the butt or remove excess skin, but it does give a fuller, natural-looking buttocks. For patients who don't have enough excess fat for a Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Virden also offers silicone butt implants. Dr. Virden will help patients select the correct shape and size of the implant to meet the patient's goals. If you want a rounder, firmer butt, schedule a consultation with Dr. Virden to learn more about your options.
Butt augmentation surgery is often requested by men and women all across the nation. Ideal candidates:
- Desire a curvier, fuller bottom
- Have lost significant weight and want to restore volume to their butt
- Have good skin elasticity
- Have enough excess fat for a Brazilian butt lift or want silicone butt implants
"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"- Google User / Google / Nov 22, 2016
"CHANGED MY LIFE!I whole heartily recommend Dr. Charles Virden for a procedure. I had two consults a couple of years apart for an abdominoplasty. He sat with me and asked, “what has changed”? This led to a wonderful, caring discussion on what had changed in the two years since my first consult. (loss of almost 100lbs) Dr. Virden became as excited or more excited as I was to the prospects of how this procedure would change my life. He was so caring and enthusiastic to do the procedure. As I lay in recovery, he threw back the curtain and said (with the largest smile I have ever seen), “Hello skinny, I’ll see you tomorrow.” I can only say, I wish I had done it sooner…it has Changed My life! Thank you, Thank you. Patty"- P.B. / Google / Oct 02, 2019
"Prior to having Dr Virden correct 2 botched surgeries I had given up on all hope of looking normal. The plastic surgeon that did my previous surgeries had me on a pump for a year then made me pay full price for a revision that was worse. Dr. Virden never had a doubt he could fix it and that gave me hope. I can honestly say I had given up on anyone fixing it, but he did! I am 3 weeks out from surgery and I feel like I did in my 20's! Seriously this isn't an exaggeration. I would refer my friends and family to Dr. Virden and his staff. His positive attitude and professional but kind bedside manner is comforting. I honestly can't say enough about my experience and how happy I am. If you're thinking about changing something please talk to him first. After all I have been through I can honestly say he comes through and has an eye for detail. Thank you Dr. Virden and staff for giving me a new outlook on myself."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Sep 12, 2019
"I've been going to see Leah S. for a few years now for a variety of things and she's the absolute best! I live in NYC and always make it point to book an appointment whenever I go back to visit family in Tahoe. She's incredibly knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable and all her work is amazing. I would highly recommend Leah and even got a few friends and family members to start seeing her!"- K.O. / Google / Aug 27, 2019
"I saw Aleah Hartung the P.A. In Dr Virdens office for a skin tag removal. I didn’t have to wait months to get in to see her as if I had to see a dermatologist in any other office. I got in, in less than a week. Her technique was amazing, I didn’t feel a thing. I was very impressed. I highly recommend anyone who needs their skin looked at for any suspicious lesions, moles or any skin concerns."- N.T. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
What to Expect
Butt augmentation surgery, as long as it is not paired with multiple other surgeries, is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting and will not require an overnight stay. A Brazilian butt lift will begin with liposuction to remove excess fat from the body. The removed fat is purified and prepared before it is carefully injected into the buttocks. The doctor typically adds slightly more fat than is needed to meet the patient's goals to account for minor fat absorption. For implants, the doctor will make a small incision to allow the insertion of the implants. After the implants have been placed and sutured, the patient will be educated on how to care for their incisions and new implants. There may also be a placement of drains to allow blood and fluids of the skin to empty properly during the first week after surgery. Patients can expect swelling and bruising for several days, but most recover enough to resume normal activities in 2 – 3 weeks. Since butt implants are placed on the upper part of the buttocks, putting weight down on the incision area must be avoided, so patients should sit with their weight on the thighs and sleep on their bellies or sides.
With the skill and artistic vision of a plastic surgeon, the results of a butt augmentation surgery can transform the contour of the body and the patient’s confidence. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime will still be very important to keep the body at a steady weight and not damage the surgical area. However, natural aging will continue and a revision surgery may be needed in the years ahead along with a butt lift to remove loose skin.
