Buttock Augmentation

Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation surgery, increases the fullness and roundness of the buttocks and improves the overall balance of the area through the placement of implants or fat transfer which is commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). Butt implants are surgically inserted into the buttocks to add size and shape to the area. Patients with sagging skin can enhance and firm their buttocks with butt lift surgery. A butt lift can be performed in combination with other procedures like an abdominoplasty to achieve more comprehensive body contouring.

In general, butt lift candidates need to be in overall good health, have realistic expectations about the results and be non-smokers. Patients interested in a traditional butt lift need an excessive amount of fat, tissue or skin in the buttock area they have not been able to remove through diet or exercise as well as be at a stable weight for some time. Candidates for a BBL are people who want to add volume to their backside and have excess deposits of fat elsewhere on the body that a surgeon can transfer during the procedure.

The cost of a butt augmentation depends on the method chosen by the patient. On average, buttock augmentation with fat grafting is around $8000-$10,000 while buttock implants are $8500-$12,000. A traditional buttock lift can cost $6000-$9000.  The cost varies depending on whether the augmentation is combined with any other procedures as well as the amount of fat harvested by the doctor.

The final results of buttock augmentation depend on the method chosen by the patient. Traditional butt lifts provide more dramatic results while a Brazilian butt lift offers subtler results. No matter what type of butt lift a patient chooses, the results can last several years as long as the patient does not experience a large weight loss or gain. If placed properly by the surgeon, the results from butt implants should be permanent.
