Eighteen years ago when I first came to Los Angeles to start my plastic surgery practice my professional statement would have read much more like a proud self-confident resume - being sure to note all of my personal accomplishments to date. After over ten postgraduate years of education and plastic surgery residency and fellowship, I was eager to launch into the real world and willing to do whatever it took to be the best I could be at my craft. Well now that I have given it my all and I’ve been fortunate enough to remain healthy and happy doing so, affecting so many patients lives, I feel my best professional statement is just one great big thank you to every patient that has ever trusted in me and felt the confidence to select me as their plastic surgeon. I am truly honored to have been so fortunate to receive such a philosophic award. This is what drives me every day to get up and do it over and over again, giving 100% each time. Thank you all past, present, and future patients.

Questions and Answers
Buttock implants are placed in an outpatient surgical procedure. Our buttocks augmentation procedures typically require 1-1.5 hours in the operating room. Dr. Stanton first makes an two small (~1.5 inch long) incisions in the midline, a.k.a. the “butt crack”. This natural crease is ideal for hiding scars, rendering them imperceptible for many patients. Women with a short and shallow butt crack may have a slight bit of the scar visiblejust above the top of the buttocks. The implants are always best placed within the buttock muscles (aka “intramuscular”), not on top of the muscle and not “subfascial” both of which lead to problems with visibility, shape, sagging, and/or flipping of the implant. Intramuscular placed implants are expertly positioned to provide a long lasting, natural-looking lift and shape to the backside.
Dr. Stanton uses patented anatomic buttock implants for most of our buttock augmentation procedures. This implant, called the Stanton Anatomic Buttock Implant, was created by our own Dr. Stanton after years of careful research and study. Most traditional butt implants are round or tear-drop oval shaped, but these anatomically shaped implants are symmetrically oval (ellipsoid). This unique shape eliminates the risk of rotation that is common with tear-drop oval implants. These implants also produce a more natural buttocks silhouette. Our implants are FDA-approved and manufactured here in California at an FDA-approved facility. They are made from soft, solid silicone rubber and cannot leak or rupture, thus are permanent, never requiring replacement unless a change in size is requested.
At first, BBL results are stunning, but in time, the body reabsorbs the transferred fat, leaving you with a flat backside. For many women, levels of fat loss are staggering, up to 80+% of the transferred fat is gone in the first year. Long story short, butt implants are more effective, more consistent, and permanent compared to Brazilian butt lift surgery. With implants, Dr. Stanton can control the exact size and shape of the additional volume to the buttocks. He chooses the size and the best anatomic shape of the implant and where it is positioned. Fat loss after a BBL is often inconsistent, making it difficult for a surgeon to determine how much fat to implant and where to place the fat injections. With butt implants, we’ll know what your results will look like before the procedure and we consistently achieve these results for our patients.
We offer both saline and silicone breast implants to our breast augmentation patients. Dr. Stanton typically recommends a silicone implant because of their more natural look and feel. Saline implants offer some benefits too. The implants themselves are more affordable, typically costing about half as much as a silicone implant. This type of breast implant may be ideal for younger patients as they can help to expand the breast tissues. Saline implants also can be placed through the belly button for a scar-free procedure. Saline has these benefits, but in most cases, Dr. Stanton finds that silicone is the far superior choice. It is the implant he would recommend for any female family member considering breast surgery.
Your face makes your first impression, and your buttocks handles your last. I believe in modern beauty inside and out, I love witnessing the elevated boost in self-confidence, mood and outlook patients display after the physical transition is complete.
