Buttock Augmentation procedures with fat grafting (also commonly known as Brazilian Butt Lift) have been in high demand this past year. With this surgery becoming one of the latest trends among celebrities and now patients, conversations about safety concerns have become even more important. Although the results are typically satisfying to patients and complications are rare, there are always risks associated with any surgery performed.

Thanks to research and innovation in this area, surgeons have performed successful procedures by following proper techniques, protocols, and research outcomes and by customizing their surgical plan to each patient’s specific anatomy. With our clinic performing over 100 Butt Augmentations in a year, we are one of the most experienced practices when it comes to these procedure.

As Director of Research and Education at The Plastic Surgery Clinic, Dr. Jamil Ahmad ensures that we always stay up to date on the latest scientific developments for every procedure we perform. Thanks to his active role in research and education, he is often asked to contribute to broader conversations among surgeons around the world. He sat down with peer-reviewed medical journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, to discuss a recent article on safety and buttock augmentation that appears in the January 2018 issue.

Dr. Lista Talking the “Ivanka Trump Look” on Global News

ivanka-trump-beautyBoth surgical and non-surgical treatments for the face have become increasingly popular in the aesthetic industry with a growing number of plastic surgeons providing various facial rejuvenation treatments on their patients. Nowadays, patients are aiming to contour the jawline, resulting in a younger looking (and slimmer looking) face. With that being said, achieving a natural, beautiful look is one of the primary goals when it comes to plastic surgery.

For years, Hollywood celebrities have provided women with inspiration for their plastic surgery desires. Today, however, there’s a new beauty icon taking over – and no, she doesn’t appear on the big screen. Ivanka Trump’s look is beginning to spark more and more interest, inspiring women of all ages to opt for the beautiful, natural look she has. Don’t believe us? See what our very own Dr. Lista has to say about this new norm here.
