Brazilian Buttock Augmentation Surgery

Buttock augmentation, also known as gluteoplasty, is designed to fill out and lift flat or sagging buttocks by using implants or transplanted fat (Brazilian Butt Lift). Whether you require gluteal implants or fat transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift) will depend on how much fat you have available for harvesting on your body. Fat can be taken from the abdomen, love handles, outer thighs, back and inner thighs. The amount of fat required to reshape the buttocks depends on the patient’s anatomical shape and differs from person to person.

If you do not have enough fat available to achieve the desired results by fat transfer, then implants can be used instead, with smaller amounts of fat used to add shape and smooth over the buttock implant. A butt lift also involves liposuction to shape and sculpt the buttocks and hips. Removing fat from the lower back and upper thighs will help achieve more prominence and definition.

Buttock augmentations undertaken entirely with a patient’s own fat (fat grafting), so called Brazilian Butt Lift have low complication rates. Butt Implants are also safe providing the right type are used. They must be semi-solid and made from high resistant silicone that does not rupture. They are specially designed for the purpose and are not the same as breast implants. Additionally, they must be correctly placed, under the great gluteal muscle, meaning they are not detectable under the skin.

There will be one single scar, 5-6 cms long, placed in the middle fold of the buttocks, so it is as concealed as possible. In the case of fat-only gluteoplasty, there will be very small scars across the body in the locations where fat has been removed, as well as marks where the fat is reinjected. There will be a certain amount of fat reabsorption in the first few weeks but what remains becomes permanent, offering patients naturally enhanced buttocks.

Gluteoplasty with implants

The buttocks you were born with may or may not have the musculature or curves you desire. It may be difficult to improve upon certain areas with exercise alone, and in some cases, damage from an accident or certain health conditions may affect your appearance. There are two primary augmentation options for increasing volume in the buttocks: fat transfer and implants. The procedure also called a Brazilian butt lift, but this name can be confused with similarly named exercise programs. Depending on the changes you desire and your available body fat, a fat transfer may be used alone or in conjunction with implants. Unlike fat transfers, where survival of transferred fat varies and may require touchups, implants maintain their volume and don’t need follow up adjustments.
