What is SCOOP Lift Buttock Lift®?
Designed to overcome the deficiencies of the traditional Brazilian Buttock Lift, the SCOOP Lift buttock lift® procedure employs a combination of meticulous liposculpting and fat transfer. By removing fat from your abdomen, flanks, back, or thighs and then injecting it into your backside, Dr. Schulman can improve the entire appearance of your lower body.
Whether you are looking for a slight lift or significantly increased volume in your backside, SCOOP Lift buttock lift® can help you achieve your appearance goals.
The SCOOP Lift Buttock Lift® Procedure
While Dr. Schulman performs SCOOP Lift buttock lift® often, no two surgeries are alike. This is because he analyzes each patient’s body carefully to determine where fat should be repositioned for the best results. Dr. Schulman will contour your entire torso with the eye and skill of a sculptor. It is so much more than simply taking fat out and putting fat in.
Dr. Schulman performs SCOOP Lift buttock lift® in a fully accredited New York City operating facility to ensure your safety and comfort. The recovery is similar to after liposuction, and you will be able to return to your regular routine in only a short time. As the swelling goes down, you will begin to appreciate your new sculpted appearance.
Benefits of SCOOP Lift Buttock Lift®
Unlike artificial and unnatural fillers that can lead to hardness and infection, the fat used in SCOOP Lift buttock lift® is part of your own body, so it is safe, natural, and long lasting. The transplanted fat cells stay where they are injected, eliminating the risk of shifting that is often associated with butt implants.
The added benefit of the SCOOP Lift buttock lift® is the body contouring Dr. Schulman achieves through fat harvesting, particularly the sexy lower back curve that accentuates your buttocks. Please review our Brazilian Butt Lift photos.
Frequently Asked Questions
You may be interested in buttock contouring but have additional questions about Dr. Schulman’s Scoop Lift buttock lift®. Below you will find answers to some frequently asked questions. If you have additional questions after reading though these FAQs, feel free to contact our office. We will be happy to set up your personal consultation with the doctor so you can learn about the process, results, and your specific options.
Q: Who is a good candidate for a Scoop Lift Buttock Lift®?
A: Anyone who desires reshaping of their butt and hips, and has some extra fat in other places on their body, is a candidate for this procedure. Perhaps you want your buttock and hips larger, or maybe you desire a rounder or fuller shape.
Q: How does this procedure work?
A: A Scoop Lift buttock lift® involves liposuction of your excess fat from areas you want smaller (like your stomach, back, and thighs) and then re-injection of that fat into areas you want larger or rounder (like your buttocks and hips).
A: What is SCOOP Lift buttock lift® and how is it different from Brazilian Butt Lift?
Q: SCOOP Lift buttock lift® is Dr. Schulman’s trademarked technique for buttock augmentation and contouring. It is his refined version of a Brazilian Butt Lift and is characterized by that beautiful and sexy scoop to the lower back. SCOOP Lift buttock lift®. Dr. Schulman has been performing buttock and hip augmentation using your own fat since 2007 and has dedicated his career to refining the technique to improve results and safety. The result is his Scoop Lift buttock lift® , which is only available with Dr. Schulman in his New York City office.
Q: How many Scoop Lift buttock lift® procedures does Dr. Schulman perform?
A: Dr. Schulman perform 6-8 of these procedures per week, making him one of the busiest buttock contouring surgeons in the country and the most prolific in the Northeast. His patients come from all over the country and the world. Dr. Schulman is careful to limit the number of Scoop Lift® procedures her performs each day so that he can ensure that proper attention is given to each patient.
Q: What if I want surgery with Dr. Schulman but am not from New York City?
Because so many of our patients come from a great distance for surgery, we are experienced with out-of-town patients. Our office can set up a phone or internet consult. We can assist you by providing discounted hotels that are close to our office. You will be expected to stay in NYC for 7 days after the surgery depending on where you are coming from and the extent of your procedure.
Q: How long does the surgery take?
A: The surgery will take 2-4 hours depending on the amount of liposuction and fat transfer that you require. It is done under general anesthesia and you are allowed to go home (or to a hotel) the same day.
Q: Can this be done under local anesthesia?
A: It can, but we do not recommend it. It is safer to be done under general anesthesia where you will be monitored by a board certified anesthesiologist in a fully accredited surgical facility. The amount of liposuction is too extensive to be done under only local anesthesia. Man people are fearful of “general anesthesia”, but keep in mind that there are a variety of different levels of anesthesia so when you have surgery with us, you are NOT paralyzed and you ARE breathing on your own. Think of it like a really really deep sedation.
Q: Where is the fat taken from?
A: Fat can be taken from anywhere that you don’t want it. Commonly it is taken from the upper back, lower back, flanks, thighs, abdomen, and arms.
Q: Can I use someone else’s fat?
A: Unfortunately, it needs to be your own fat. Using someone else’s fat would be the same as an organ transplant.
Q: What if I am too skinny and have no extra fat?
A: Even in the skinniest patients, I am usually able to find some fat. If you are really too skinny then your options are to try to gain weight so that you have some fat to donate to yourself, or may want to consider buttock implants.
Q: Where is the fat placed?
A: The fat can be put in your buttock to give more roundness, projection, and lift. It can also be placed in the hips to give a more hourglass appearance.
Q: Where are the scars?
A: The fat is removed and injected through very small puncture holes that are carefully placed in locations that are hidden beneath clothes.
Q: How much fat can be injected?
A: The amount of fat that is injected will depend on what look you are going for, your body type, and the amount of available donor fat. It is not uncommon for me to inject over 1000cc (1 liter) of fat into each buttock and hip. During your consultation, your surgeon should be able to give you an idea of how much fat will be injected.
Q: Is this procedure safe?
A: Yes. When performed by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, Scoop Lift® Buttock Augmentation is extremely safe. There are techniques that are used to minimize the risk of complications, and Dr. Schulman works closely with other plastic surgeons to help set these safety guidelines.
Q: How do you know what look I am going for?
A: Bring photos with you. These “wish pics” are very valuable and will help your surgeon understand what type of look you are requesting. You can easily find photos online that demonstrate what you want. And what you don’t want. You should also pick out your favorite before and after pictures from the surgeon’s website.
Q: I heard that half the fat goes away. Is this true?
A: No. When proper technique is used, about 30% of the fat does not survive the transplant. This fat usually dies within the first 3 months. After this, whatever fat remains should remain forever.
Q: What if I gain or lose weight in the future?
A: Properly selected and injected fat should be fairly resistant to moderate fluctuations in weight. This means that your butt should not significantly increase or decrease in size. Large fluctuations in weight may however result in some change in the shape and volume of your buttock.
Q: Can I sit afterwards?
A: It is important to minimize pressure on the newly transplanted fat cells. You should avoid sitting for the first week and then you will sit very carefully for 8 weeks. Your surgeon can demonstrate how to safely sit without injuring the newly transplanted fat cells.
Q: Do I have to wear a compression garment?
A: Yes. It is important to wear a compression garment after the surgery. Every surgeon has a different garment protocol and this will be reviewed with you prior to your surgery.
Q: Do I need a drain?
A: It depends. If placement of a drain will speed your recovery by removing excess fluid, then a drain will be placed. If a drain is placed, it usually remains for about 1 week and is easily removed in the office at your post-op visit.
Q: When will I see the final result?
A: It will take several months to see your final results. Your buttock will be very large and swollen for the first 4 weeks. It is expected that you will think your butt is too big! The swelling will go down and you should get a good idea of your buttock size after about 6 weeks.
Q: Can I get a Scoop Lift Buttock Lift® if I had a previous Brazilian Butt Lift with another surgeon?
A: Yes, usually. Dr. Schulman performs many revisions from other surgeons, so just because you had a prior surgery does not mean you can’t get a Scoop Lift Buttock Lift® with Dr. Schulman. There are situations where you may not be a candidate, such as lack of available donor fat or complex deformities that cannot be repaired. You should set up your consultation to see if you are a candidate for a secondary or revision procedure.
Q: Can I combine this with other procedures?
A: Yes. It may be possible to combine this procedure with other surgeries. This is determined on a case-by-case basis and you will need to discuss this specifically with your surgeon.
Q: I saw that another surgeon advertised that they do a Scoop Lift Buttock Lift®. Are they lying?
A: Scoop Lift Buttock Lift® is Dr. Schulman’s own technique. While others may perform a traditional Brazilian Butt Lift, only Dr. Schulman performs his Scoop Lift Buttock Lift® using advanced techniques. No one else is authorized to use that name.
Q: What is the price for Scoop Lift® Buttock Augmentation?
A: The price will depend on a variety of factors, such as complexity of the case, anticipated length of the surgery, and areas of liposuction. Our office is happy to give you a general pricing over the phone, but your actual price will be given to you after your consultation with Dr. Schulman.
