Posted on 21 May 2013. Filed under: Buttocks Procedures
Buttock augmentation is a surgical procedure performed to reshape the buttocks contour usually by adding volume to the gluteal region. The said region is basically the medical term for what is commonly known as your “butt” – including its underlying skin tissue and muscles. As an aesthetic enhancement procedure, it is undertaken to augment buttocks volume and achieve a fuller, more defined body shape.
Fat Grafting and Butt Implants are the two main methods of performing buttocks augmentation today. With Fat Grafting, liposuction is done to harvest your excess fat in the undesired areas around your buttocks and then such fat is transferred into your buttocks to achieve the desired form. With Butt Implant, the procedure is similar to breast implant wherein an incision is made within the gluteal crease to place the implant.
Utah Plastic Surgeon Dr. York Yates prefers Fat Grafting as his augmentation technique because of its superiority over Buttocks Implant method. Fat Grafting is more efficient and safer, as well as generally more effective to attain your aspired buttocks shape. The results from buttock augmentation can be enhanced by reducing fat in surrounding areas, giving improved form. Because Buttocks Implant is a method with fairly high complication rate, Dr. Yates has opted not to perform such method.
The preferred Buttock Augmentation Technique is much more than adding volume to the gluteal region. Using his exceptional surgery skills, Dr. Yates performs masterful liposuction to reduce and reshape the fatty areas surrounding your buttocks. And then the harvested fat – treated delicately and concentrated in a sterile environment – is transferred into the buttocks in a three-dimensional method. This type of buttock augmentation has been also coined “Brazilian butt lift”. Using Fat Grafting technique, Dr. Yates has helped numerous patients in the Utah region and elsewhere to achieve their desired buttocks and body contour.
Aside from being experienced in buttock augmentation procedures, Dr. Yates is also a bona fide diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

The latest data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show that breast augmentation surgery remains the number one procedure, with respect to the number of surgery operations performed in the U.S. in 2012. Breast augmentation is the enlargement of breast size usually through the use of implants. At a total of 286,000 augmentation operations undertaken, the 2012 figure is actually a 7 percent decline compared to 2011 statistics. But then again, it is still the numero uno plastic surgery all over America! The popularity, however, has a dark corner: several augmentation patients have experienced post-surgery complications that in some cases require surgical revision.
Some of the possible Augmentation Complications include:
Breast Implant Malposition or Asymmetry
Loss of Cleavage Between Implants (Synmastia)
Implant Deflation/Implant Rapture
Indeed, there are quite a number of complications that may be experienced after a breast implant surgery. Each complication requires a specific surgery tact to fix it. Some complications may be due to simple miscommunication between the surgeon and patient, like when the patient would want a bit of a reduction in size because the previous breast enlargement made her breasts too big or looking unnatural for her body frame. Other complications may be due to uncontrollable skin tissue infections, like what happens during Capsular Contracture wherein an inappropriate amount of scar tissue around a breast implant causes unsightly and uncomfortable firmness of the breast. Nevertheless, in many instances of breast augmentation complications, the plastic surgeon is either partly or completely to blame. The surgeon was perhaps inaccurate, less experienced to perform augmentation surgery, or failed to communicate clearly with the patient.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. York Yates has excellent understanding on the importance of communication in achieving patient’s aesthetic desires. He understands as well the patient’s feeling of anxiety to go through another procedure after an unsuccessful surgery. With impressive training and experience, the Salt Lake City Surgeon is also reputed for performing surgical procedures in a proper and satisfying fashion the first time with a very low complication rate.
Hence, upon the initial stage of a Breast Implant Revision, Dr. Yates goes straight to engaging the patient in forthright yet amiable discussions. What happened in the previous augmentation surgery? Why is the patient dissatisfied with the result? What is her specific expectations for the revision procedure? These and more are the focal questions in the pre-op discussions between the patient and Dr. Yates. It is the goal of the Utah Surgeon to make his patients feel more comfortable with the idea of another surgery and that they are confident enough that Dr. Yates’ impressive surgery skills will correct the previous mistake of other surgeons. Most importantly, Dr. Yates will do everything in his surgical power to hopefully achieve this time around the patient’s desire for her breast size.

If you’ve been following some celebrity gossips, you must have heard about Hollywood stars like Demi Moore and Britney Spears regaining their pre-motherhood body after undergoing some surgical procedures. The rumors may be true or not. But it is definitely not a rumor that a set of surgical procedures collectively called Mommy Makeover, if done properly, can help you achieve your pre-pregnancy body back.
It is a common misconception that mommy makeover has a strict set of procedures. The combination of surgeries is highly dependent upon your individual cosmetic concerns. Some patients may need a combination of tummy tuck and breast augmentation, while other patients are recommended to have a combination of liposuction and breast reduction surgeries. In other words, each set of surgery procedures for each individual patient. Aesthetics aside, if you intend to have a mommy makeover, you should also put great emphasis on the safety level of the procedures involved.
This is probably what sets Dr. York Yates apart from other plastic surgeons in Utah. For him, achieving your cosmetic aspiration is at par with providing you a healthy and safe surgery. The Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon is well aware of the growing popularity of mommy makeover procedures, but he is not quick to ride on the bandwagon of “shortcutting” a delicate set of surgeries. This personal philosophy stems from Dr. Yates’ many years of successful mommy makeover operations. Thus, first off, your medical history and current physical condition will be scrutinized thoroughly before Dr. Yates recommends any procedure. If indeed necessary, he will customize a surgical plan based on your particular condition and aesthetic needs.
For more information on Dr. Yates’ Safe Mommy Makeover procedures, visit his website on that topic, including the testimonials and Before & After photos of past patients.
If you want to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Yates, please call now their Utah Office at (801) 525-8741.

While it is commendable for anyone to lose significant weight, it doesn’t bring about positive effects only. Some of the negative effects include the drooping and presence of excess skin, as well as lost of skin support due to drastic weight reduction. These effects can occur at almost any part of the body – from arms to thighs. It follows then that indeed surgical procedures are likely necessary to fix the unpleasant body effects of weight reduction.
But is there such a thing as a massive weight loss surgery? From a plastic surgery perspective, massive weight loss surgery picks up the pieces after weight loss. This kind of surgery is not intended to provide a great deal of actual weight loss but can help with the excess of skin that results. But there is no single surgery that is known as such or is intended exclusively to counter massive weight loss. Salt Lake City Plastic Surgeon Dr. Yates performs several body procedures catered to eliminate or minimize the effects of massive weight loss. With widely known expertise in body contouring procedures, Dr. Yates undertakes surgeries depending on a patient’s specific weight loss effect. These body surgeries include Tummy Tuck, Arm Lift, Breast Lift, and Thigh Lift.
While a lot of surgeons would combine these surgeries in a single procedural operation to a patient with multiple concerns, Dr. Yates prefer to perform body surgeries in separate operations or in stages. Combined procedures might save time and everything is perhaps finished in a single day, but combining surgeries entail a very high risk to the patient. More so, it is the general observation of Dr. Yates from his years of practice that a Staged Operation provides optimal outcomes from each component surgery.
Dr. York Yates is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with a track record of successful body contouring procedures done mostly in Utah. He is reputed for his keen attention to details and in putting the safety of patients above other considerations.

Now Ogden, Utah won’t have to drive so far to get CoolSculpting, the best in noninvasive fat reduction. CoolSculpting literally freezes fatty bulges away and will soon be available in our Layton, Utah plastic surgery office.
Geographically, we are in an ideal spot to offer CoolSculpting as there are no other CoolSculpting centers in Northern Utah and Southern Idaho. We will be the only center offering CoolSculpting between Bountiful,Utah and Boise, Idaho.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved the Natrelle 410 highly cohesive anatomically shaped silicone-gel filled breast implant for breast augmentation and breast reconstruction.
Natrelle 410 implants are manufactured by Allergan, Inc and are the second anatomical or tear drop shaped breast implant to receive FDA approval.
Sientra is the other breast implant manufacturer to have FDA approval for a tear drop shaped implant and it is certain that the other major implant manufacturer in the U.S, Mentor, is soon to follow.
These implants are made of a highly cohesive silicone product and as a result can be manufactured in a tear drop shape. They have been previously coined “gummy bear” implants.
These tear drop shaped, gummy bear implants can potentially create a more natural augmentation result, particularly in the very small breasted patient. Choosing between a round and tear drop shaped implant is an important part of the breast implant decision process between the plastic surgeon and his/her patient.

In a few weeks we will be launching coolsculpting in our Utah practice
CoolSculpting by Zeltiq is an FDA cleared revolutionary new method of fat reduction that doesn’t involve needles, sedation, surgery or downtime. Using the application of cooling plates the fat is literally frozen away.
The results are not immediate, taking about 3 weeks to see some results and about 2 months to see the final results. Although much cheaper than liposuction, a smaller amount of fat can be removed with coolsculpting than can be removed with liposuction. For more dramatic results CoolSculpting can be repeated within several weeks.
Top of the line in non-invasive fat removal
This is unlike anything I have ever offered as I am relying on technology alone to achieve results. As a bit of a perfectionist and control freak this is a hard transition. I am very conservative with what I choose to offer to my patients and don’t generally buy into the hype of the ever changing newest noninvasive technology. With my reputation at stake, I have studied all methods of noninvasive fat reduction for my Utah patients and I have carefully chosen CoolSculpting as the head of the class.
CoolSculpting reviews are mostly positive with a realself “worth it rating” of 72%. Although not every patient is happy this is a pretty good number for a noninvasive procedure. At the ASAPS meeting last year in Vacouver I attended a lecture given by a plastic surgeon who has tried and currently owns every noninvasive fat removal device available and in his opinion CoolSculpting was the best.
Dr Yates first hand coolsculpting experience
A few days ago I tried coolsculpting myself so I can better explain the procedure to patients and understand what kind of result can be expected first hand. The procedure was not painless but it wasn’t bad either. It takes about 1 hour per area and I did a total of three. Two on one upper hip and one on the lower abdomen. I only did one hip to have a comparison side. Initially there is a very cold gel applied to the skin followed by the suction applicator. The skin and fat were drawn into the device with suction which was uncomfortable for the first 1-2 minutes on the hips and 5-10 minutes on the abdomen. It was pretty easy to ignore and I was able to watch a movie and do some work on my phone.
At the time of this post, three days out, there is no visible sign that anything was done but the area feels somewhat tingly and tender to touch. Although I would like to see my results now I know we are at least 3 weeks away. I will replace this picture with my own CoolSculpting before and after pictures in a few weeks/ months if they are not too humiliating.
Call for a CoolSculpting appointment
We are still working out the specifics but it looks like we will be installing in about a month (mid-March 2013). We will be offering discounted rates initially, call or email today to get your procedure scheduled at this early discounted rate.

Loose and severely stretched skin is often the result of massive weight loss. Your upper arms tend to sag and your breasts may look flat with nipples pointing downwards. On the other hand, your abdominal area may overhang into the sides while the skin on your thighs, groin and buttocks may droop. Dr. York Yates recommends a Salt Lake City body contouring procedure for individuals who have just experienced the aforementioned bodily changes.
Excellent candidates for body contouring surgeries include:
- any adult who has achieved stable weight for the last 6 months
- individuals who are in good physical and mental health
- individuals with realistic expectations
It is relatively important for you to have stable weight because sagging skin will redevelop if you keep on losing weight.
For information on body-contouring surgeries in Utah, please contact Dr. Yates today by calling our office or filing out the consultation request form.
