What Is Buttock Augmentation Surgery?

Buttock augmentation surgery, also known as gluteal augmentation, is a cosmetic surgery that enhances the shape and size of a patient’s buttocks. The procedure is ideal for individuals who are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their backside or who have lost volume in this area due to weight loss or aging.

Buttock augmentation is performed with two primary methods: fat grafting or buttock implants. 

Fat grafting involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, then purifying the fat for reinjection into the buttocks to enhance volume and shape. Buttock implants, on the other hand, involve inserting silicone implants into the buttocks to create a more defined and lifted appearance.

Why Consider Buttock Augmentation?

Buttock augmentation surgery is a personal decision and should be carefully considered in consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. Common reasons that lead many patients to consider buttock augmentation include:

Some patients might feel like their backside is too small in relation to the rest of their body and may wish to enhance the size and shape so they can enjoy a more balanced overall appearance.

Aging, weight fluctuations, and genetic factors can all contribute to a flat or sagging backside. Buttock augmentation helps lift and adds volume to the buttocks, creating a more youthful, vibrant, and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

For some people, feeling self-conscious about the appearance of their buttocks can impact their self-confidence and body image. Buttock augmentation can help them feel more confident and comfortable in their own skin.

In some cases, the buttocks may be uneven or asymmetrical due to a congenital condition or injury. Buttock augmentation can help correct this asymmetry, creating a more even and balanced appearance.

What Are the Basic Steps Involved in Dr. Abtahi’s Buttock Augmentation Surgery?

Dr. Abtahi’s approach to buttock augmentation surgery is tailored to address the unique personal needs of the patient. However, typically, most procedures involve the following fundamental steps:

The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Abtahi to discuss the patient’s goals and expectations for the procedure. It is here that Dr. Abtahi explains to the patient the detailed process for buttock augmentation, aligns patient expectations with reality, and plans a personalized approach to buttock augmentation for each patient.

Buttock augmentation surgery is normally done under general anesthesia, so the patient is asleep during the procedure and doesn’t feel anything.

Dr. Abtahi will make incisions in inconspicuous areas, such as the crease where the buttocks meet the thighs, to minimize visible scarring. It is through these incisions the surgery is performed. 

If a patient is undergoing fat grafting, Dr. Abtahi will harvest fat from other areas of their body, often the lower back, lower abdominal region, or the thighs. The fat is retrieved via liposuction, then the fatty tissue is purified, and finally, reinjected into the buttock.

If a patient’s buttock augmentation is to be achieved with implants, Dr. Abtahi will create a pocket in the buttocks and insert the pre-selected silicone implants to create a more defined and lifted appearance.

Once the implants or fat have been placed, Dr. Abtahi closes the incisions using sutures or skin adhesives.

After the surgery, patients are monitored in a recovery area until the effects of the anesthesia wear off. At this point, the patient is released with specific instructions for recovery, pain management, and follow up meetings. 

Choosing the Right Buttock Augmentation Surgeon

Choosing the right buttock augmentation surgeon is a crucial decision that requires careful consideration. Achieving the results the patient desires depends on first choosing the right surgeon. Here are some factors to consider:

Board Certification

Look for a surgeon who is board-certified in plastic surgery and has specific experience in buttock augmentation surgery. Board certification ensures that the surgeon has undergone extensive training and meets certain standards for safety and competency.


Select a surgeon who has extensive experience performing buttock augmentation surgery and can show proof of their previous work. A good way to look for this is through the surgeon’s before-and-after photos, which can provide patients with insight into the surgeon’s capabilities and the results they can expect.

Reviews and Testimonials

Read reviews and testimonials from previous patients who have undergone buttock augmentation surgery with the surgeon under consideration. This can validate any claims and help set expectations.


Choose a surgeon who feels warm and compassionate yet professional and highly competent. It is essential that patients have a surgeon with whom they feel comfortable during their buttock augmentation procedure.


Make sure that the surgeon is performing the procedure in an accredited surgical facility and that they take all necessary safety precautions.

What Should Patients Understand Before Deciding on Buttock Augmentation Surgery?

Along with selecting the correct surgeon, there are several other key points patients must be clear on before they commit to buttock augmentation. These are:

  • Implant vs. Fat Grafting: Patients should understand the difference between buttock implants and fat grafting, and which option is best suited for their needs. Buttock implants involve the insertion of silicone implants to create a more defined aesthetic. Fat grafting involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body and injecting it into the buttocks to enhance volume and shape. Fat grafting will provide subtle, more natural-looking results, whereas implants will provide a more striking aesthetic. 
  • Realistic Expectations: Patients should have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery. While buttock augmentation can enhance the size and shape of the buttocks, it may not necessarily result in a completely different body shape. Patients should discuss their goals and expectations with their surgeon to ensure they have a realistic understanding of the achievable results.
  • Risks: Like any surgery, there are risks and potential complications associated with buttock augmentation surgery. Patients must discuss these risks before making a decision.
  • Downtime: Buttock augmentation surgery involves a recovery period, during which patients should avoid strenuous activities and follow post-operative instructions carefully. Patients need to understand the downtime required and plan accordingly.
  • Cost: Buttock augmentation surgery can be expensive, and patients should understand the cost and whether their insurance will cover any part of the procedure. Most insurance providers will not cover the procedure as it is not considered “essential”—it is a purely cosmetic procedure.

Buttock Augmentation in Dallas, TX FAQs

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgical procedure intended to change the shape, size, and contour of the buttocks.

Optimal BBL candidates are individuals who desire fuller, more shapely buttocks, have adequate fat deposits in other areas of the body for harvesting, and are in good overall health.

A Brazilian butt lift can provide natural-looking enhancement of the buttocks, with improved shape, volume, and projection. Results vary depending on individual anatomy and aesthetic goals.

During a Brazilian butt lift, fat is harvested from donor sites such as the flanks, abdomen, or thighs via liposuction. The harvested fat is then processed and grafted into target areas of the buttocks for enhanced butt contours.

A Brazilian butt lift is usually performed with a general anesthetic to ensure patient comfort and safety throughout the procedure.

Recovery from a Brazilian butt lift involves swelling, bruising, and discomfort in both the donor sites and the buttocks. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within two to three weeks, with full recovery typically taking several months.

The incisions used for liposuction during a Brazilian butt lift are small and strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. Any scars that do form typically fade over time.

Brazilian butt lift outcomes can be long-lasting, but factors like weight fluctuations and aging could diminish results. Maintaining a stable weight through a healthy lifestyle can help preserve BBL outcomes.

While non-surgical treatments such as buttock implants and injectable fillers can provide temporary enhancement, they cannot achieve the same natural-looking results as a Brazilian butt lift.

Like any surgical procedure, a Brazilian butt lift carries certain risks, including infection, bleeding, fat embolism, asymmetry, and changes in sensation. Dr. Abtahi discusses these risks with patients in detail during their consultation.

Preparing for a Brazilian butt lift may involve quitting smoking, avoiding certain medications, and arranging for post-operative care and support. Dr. Abtahi provides patients with specific instructions tailored to their needs.

Yes, a Brazilian butt lift can be combined with other procedures like breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or liposuction to achieve comprehensive body contouring and enhancement.
