Butt augmentation is a cosmetic surgery performed on Newport Beach patients who wish to have a firmer, fuller and rounder butt. Many factors can lead to a flat or deflated backside, such as weight loss, age, and natural gravity. For many, this procedure is sought as an instant enhancement. Fat transfer using fat from the patient’s own body, or implants, are popular methods for butt augmentation. Implants are best for patients who have low volume of fat, are relatively thin and desire a dramatic, permanent solution. These implants are generally safe, and will look and feel like natural muscular tissue. Dr. Domanskis usually places the incision in the buttock crease and in most cases, places the implant underneath the muscle to ensure a more natural result. The more tissue that covers the implants, the better the result will be. This will all be discussed during the initial consultation.

"Let me start by saying that I have seen many specialists during my lifetime due to a congenital condition, so when I say that Dr. Domanskis is one of the best, trust me !!! Not only did he empathize with my situation but most importantly, and the main reason I came back for the procedure, was his honesty!!! Very hard to find an honest surgeon that will take the time to give his real input and really put the patient first. Prior to the surgery, we discussed some details and he really listened to the way I wanted it done and he performed accordingly. I am very happy with my results. I am returning to him for some revisions due to personal preference on the esthetics however it's 200% better than what it was before !!! Moreover, I do want to mention Rachelle as she was very sweet and helpful during the whole process!!! Thank you again :))))"- S.T. / Yelp / May 20, 2016

What About Sitting?@headingTag>
In the first couple of weeks after surgery, the patient must not put any weight on the buttocks and should place the weight on the thighs instead. Once the pain and swelling subside, the patient will be able to sit and go back to their normal routine. A soft pillow in the first several months will help ease some pressure. The implants are placed on the upper part of the buttocks and so patients must not be anxious if they are sitting on the implants. Over time, the implants will take on a natural look and feel.
