Butt augmentation is a procedure that enhances the size and appearance of one’s gluteal area. For many, having a butt that is disproportionate to the rest of their body can negatively affect their confidence. Increasing the volume and reshaping the buttocks creates a better definition that can enhance your appearance. Contact Dr. Grazer in Newport Beach to learn more about buttock augmentation surgery.
Thinking about having buttock augmentation?
Increase Your Butt Fullness
For many women, full, shapely buttocks are a symbol of femininity and sensuality. When the gluteal area lacks fullness, it can appear undefined. Butt augmentation with implants or fat transfer can help you achieve a fuller backside. For many women, this helps them fill out pants better and opens a wider range of clothing for them to wear.
Enhance Your Confidence
For many women, achieving sensual curves helps them feel more attractive. Feeling comfortable and happy with your body often boosts your confidence. Having better self-esteem can help you be more assertive and hands-on in your life. Many women find that their newfound confidence dramatically affects their success in other areas of their lives.
Restore Balance to Your Figure
A small butt may be preventing you from having attractive curves. For some, curves are an important aspect of creating a proportionate figure. Your buttocks may lack definition in comparison to the rest of your body.
What Are Your Buttock Augmentation Options?
During your consultation in Newport Beach, we will evaluate your natural body type and butt shape to discuss the best options to achieve your butt enhancement goals.
Fat Transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift)
- Liposuction is used to remove excess fatty tissue from troublesome areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and back
- The removed fat is processed to eliminate unwanted oil and other tissues
- The fat is injected into the buttocks through three small incisions using a syringe attached to a cannula
- The fat is grafted in multiple layers to tailor the shape of the buttocks
- The multi-layer technique helps ensure a smooth deposit of fat
- All incisions are closed
- A compression garment is used in the weeks following your surgery to facilitate healing and to help ensure good results
- An incision is created in the natural buttock crease
- A pocket is created below the gluteal muscle but above the pelvic bone
- A soft, silicone implant is placed into the pocket
- The incisions are closed
- A compression garment is worn in the weeks following your surgery to facilitate healing and help ensure good results
Faq's About Butt Augmentation
Q: What is the difference between a butt augmentation with implants and a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The major difference between a butt augmentation and a Brazilian Butt Lift is that in butt augmentation with implants, silicone implants are placed for gluteal enhancement, whereas, for a Brazilian Butt Lift, your own fat is used to add volume and shape to the buttocks.
Q: Am I a good candidate for the procedure?
The best candidate for this procedure should have good skin tone and elasticity, be in good overall health, and have realistic expectations of the outcome. For a Brazilian Butt Lift, an ideal candidate should have adequate donor areas of fat on their body. It is a great choice for anyone looking to lift or enhance their backside.
Very thin patients may not be eligible for fat transfer and may be required to consider butt implants. Your surgeon will evaluate your natural body type and butt shape during your consultation and help you navigate your butt augmentation options to achieve the most satisfying outcome.
Q: Can I combine my butt augmentation with another procedure?
It is possible to combine your BBL or butt augmentation with another procedure.
Patients who are struggling with sagging skin around their thighs, buttocks, or hips may choose to combine their butt augmentation procedure with a thigh lift or lower body lift — commonly performed after significant weight loss — for a complete transformation of their lower body contour.
While the Brazilian Butt Lift requires liposuction as part of the fat harvesting process, butt implant patients may choose liposuction to reduce excess fat pockets in the surrounding areas.
Q: What happens if I gain or lose weight?
Your buttock size can increase or decrease in size depending on weight fluctuations. If you gain weight after your surgery, the size of your buttocks will increase, but so will other parts of your body. The same applies to weight loss, although significant weight fluctuations can affect your butt augmentation outcomes. Generally, it is recommended that individuals maintain a stable and healthy body weight following the procedure.
Weight fluctuations may be more noticeable in the buttocks region if you chose the Brazilian Butt Lift. This is because there will be a greater volume of fat cells susceptible to the weight change.
Q: What will my recovery be like following butt augmentation?
You will experience some bruising, swelling, and redness after the procedure. Direct pressure cannot be applied to the buttocks for eight weeks. For the first two weeks following your procedure, you should avoid sitting or laying on your back at all times. After this time, you may attempt a sitting position using a pillow to take pressure off the buttocks.
Most major swelling should subside after three months. By this time, you should be able to resume your normal activities, including sitting and exercise, but only with surgeon approval.
Q: Is butt augmentation painful?
General anesthesia is used during butt augmentation surgery for a pain-free procedure. You may feel mild discomfort following your procedure. The added weight to the buttocks takes some time getting used to for some patients. All associated discomfort is controlled using oral pain medication prescribed by your doctor in Newport Beach.
Q: How much does butt augmentation cost?
The cost of a Brazilian butt lift is determined on a patient-by-patient basis. Many factors, including surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and the extent of correction, will affect the ultimate cost of your procedure. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average surgeon/physician fee in 2015 for a butt augmentation with implants was $4,580 and a Brazilian butt lift was $4,103, but this does not include the cost of anesthesia, operating room facilities, or other related expenses. We will provide you with an exact quote during your initial consultation.
Q: Will my procedure result in scars?
Mild scarring is possible as a result of butt augmentation. Scarring is common at the site of liposuction and the injection site for fat transfer. A scar may develop in the buttock crease after an implant procedure. Great care is taken to place all incisions in discreet locations that can easily be hidden using clothing, bathing suits, and underwear.
Q: Is fat transfer permanent?
In the first year following fat transfer, you may lose some of the initial volume as the body absorbs some of the transferred fat. The fat that remains is permanent and will provide you with long-lasting results.
