LOS ANGELES, July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The frequency of and satisfaction from fat transfer to buttocks surgery is increasing among patients, which comes as no surprise to leading physician Dr. David A. Feldmar. The office of the Beverly Hills plastic surgeon has noticed an upward trend that parallels the nation's growing preference to shape and beautify rear ends via the technique, as compared with other procedures involving synthetic implants. Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is an innovative procedure that transfers unwanted fat cells from one part of the body to another to create a fuller, rounder, more voluptuous appearance. When prospective patients call regarding buttock augmentation in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, the offices of Dr. Feldmar are noticing a continued and steady increase in interest in the technique.

Nationwide the number of procedures for buttock augmentation with fat grafting increased by 16 percent last year, to 9,993, compared with 8,654 in 2012. For the same period, the buttock lift procedure decreased by the same proportion, from 2,898 in 2012 to 2,438 last year. The 2013 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) indicates that, including buttocks implants which increased slightly, the total number of buttocks improvement procedures increased by about 7.8 percent in 2013. Altogether, the jump in fat transfer procedures is noteworthy.

Additionally, an ASPS study published late last year revealed that 98 percent of 58 women who underwent the fat transfer procedure reported being "very satisfied" with the results, with no major complications.

Adding shape and volume to the buttocks has gained tremendously in appeal, compared with more established procedures to combat the effects of aging, thanks to popular culture and attendant media attention. The charm of stunningly voluptuous, curvy celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian has influenced more women to pursue the fat transfer to buttocks procedure. The fat transfer also can prove most effective since it uses a patient's own fat to reduce the risk of rejection or infection, Dr. Feldmar notes.

For a fat transfer procedure Dr. Feldmar removes a patient's own fat, typically from areas like the abdomen or thighs, and injects the cells into the patient's bottom, resulting in a fuller, more aesthetically pleasing behind. When performed by Dr. Feldmar, patients can expect little to no downtime after the procedure, with a return to normal activities within a few days.
