Hourglass body procedures

Hourglass butt implant ($13,500)

For patients who do not have enough fat but desire buttock augmentation, Dr. Cortès performs buttock augmentation using silicone implants. However, he rarely performs a buttock implant alone, because this does not provide the best shape.  The procedure includes liposuction on any area where the patient does have excess fat. Liposuction may be done in some or all of these areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Sides/flank
  • Thighs
  • Arms

With the fat harvested by this liposuction, Dr. Cortès is able to do fat transfer to the hips and sides of your buttocks in addition to placing the silicone implant.  This allows him to create the attractive hourglass shape. The cost of the Hourglass buttock augmentation thus includes not only insertion of the buttock implant, but also reshaping your buttocks with fat transfer.
