The Best Buttock Augmentation Procedures for Slender People

There are two ways that talented Bay Area plastic surgeons Drs. Samuel Pearl and Alexander Ereso can enhance the size and shape of the buttocks: with the placement of an implant or with the Brazilian butt lift procedure.

Buttock implants are safe medical devices inserted into the buttocks to add volume and fullness. Two implants are used and they are placed on either side of the buttocks. They are available in different sizes and shapes to create a range of results.

Brazilian butt lift involves taking unwanted fat from an area of the patient’s body (e.g., the abdomen or thighs), purifying it and injecting it into the buttocks to add fullness. Many patients love their Brazilian Butt Lift because the results look and feel natural, and because the procedure transforms more of the body — including the donor area. The area around the buttocks is sculpted to accentuate the shape of the buttocks. Continue reading

When Does Breast Reduction Become a “Medical Necessity?”

shutterstock_71283385“Medically necessary” is a term used by the insurance industry to classify a procedure they will cover. There is a certain set of criteria used by each individual insurer to determine whether they pay for surgery.

Although the specific requirements of a medically necessary breast reduction vary by company, many are similar. Here, Mountain View plastic surgeons Drs. Samuel Pearl and Alexander Ereso explain some of the requirements that a breast reduction candidate must meet (and that her doctor must document) in order to qualify for insurance coverage.
