Buttock Lift and Augmentation

Buttock augmentation can enhance the natural curves for patients who are unhappy with the shape or lack of fullness of their buttocks. A buttock lift can add volume and roundness to a flat or small buttock for patients seeking a more balanced body profile. If you want to enlarge or enhance your buttock shape and have discovered that they do not respond to diet or exercise, a buttock lift may be the solution you've been looking for. A buttock augmentation (butt augmentation) or buttock lift (butt lift) contours the buttocks and compensates for less volume of fat in the area. Men and women who enlarge their bottoms can enjoy a more voluptuous and shapely body silhouette.

Buttock augmentation is a highly satisfying and permanent procedure that enhances the profile of the buttocks and surrounding areas for a younger, firmer, curvier, and fuller look. Utilizing the most innovative advancements in plastic surgery and passionate about providing his patients the best possible care, Dr. Hovsepian uses his artistic talent and surgical skills to develop a voluptuous, youthful and natural appearing bottom. He emphasizes the importance of a comfortable and caring patient experience with a quick recovery.

Buttock Lift (Buttock Augmentation) may be achieved through two methods:

  • Fat transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift)
  • Gel Implants

Buttock Lift with Fat Transfer ("Brazilian Butt Lift")

Buttock augmentation with fat transfer, also known as the “Brazilian Butt Lift,” involves two steps. First, the patient's own fat is collected through liposuction, of which the most popular areas for liposuction for buttock augmentation are the lower back, waist, flanks (love handles), and stomach. This not only provides the proper amount of fat cells for buttock enhancement, it also contours the areas around the buttock for a more dramatic result. Liposculpting the small of the back creates a beautiful curve that makes the lower back curve in, while the buttock projects out. The combination is dramatic and very flattering. The liposuctioned fat is then purified in a special process so that the best quality fat is ready to be reintroduced back to the body.

In the second step, the donor fat is added to the buttocks with tiny injections at different depths to ensure an even, attractive augmentation. This method of fat injection lends a shapely contour to the buttocks that lasts a long time. Special attention is given to each person’s body shape so the entire rear looks youthful and naturally lifted. Each patient’s results will be customized to what would look best for each body frame.

It is important to perform buttock fat transfer at the time of liposuction because once the fat has been removed, the patient may never have enough fat to shape and rejuvenate the buttocks in the future. If a patient is a candidate for this procedure, the rewards are boundless. Dr. Hovsepian offers this transformational procedure to almost all patients who need liposuction. By using the fat in shaping the hips and buttocks, the waist-line and hips become very curvaceous. The skin of the buttock becomes tighter, clothes fit better and there is an anti-aging effect. The created lift effect enhances and rejuvenates the whole body silhouette.

Buttock Lift with Implants

Buttock implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes to best fit each patient's body type and desired goal. They are made of soft gel, which provides a firm, yet smooth and natural feel. The upper and outer regions of the butt become rounder and firmer once the implants are in place.

A Buttock Lift (Buttock Augmentation) can:

  • Enhance the natural curve and fullness of the buttocks
  • Create a younger, firmer, curvier, and fuller look
  • Provide a more voluptuous and shapely body silhouette

Buttock shape and proportion are critical to the overall beauty of the body. Many times this can be combined with a full body makeover including tummy tuck, breast shaping (breast augmentation or breast lift), and liposuction (liposculpture).

Buttock Lift (Buttock Augmentation) Surgery

Before your procedure, Dr. Hovsepian and his skilled team will meet with you to answer any questions you may have and make sure you understand your procedure and recovery thoroughly.

Prior to coming into the Beverly Hills or Newport Beach surgery center, you will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.

Buttock lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a near-by aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, aftercare facility or hotel conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center.
