Buttock Enhancement

Buttock Enhancement also known as Gluteal Augmentation and lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that is done to improve the appearance of the buttocks.

Buttock augmentation improves the contour, size and shape of the buttocks. This is done using buttock implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of the two. Whereas, buttock lift improves the tone of the underlying tissue in the buttocks. During a Butt lift surgery, excess skin and fat is removed and tightened, the skin is pulled upward for improved contour. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a common buttock enhancement procedure.

Who Should Consider Buttock Enhancement?

Who Should Consider Buttock Enhancement?

Butt Augmentation: You may want to consider a butt augmentation, if you think that the size of your butt is smaller than your expectation. There are several reasons why the size of your butt may be small- drastic weight loss, genetics, hormonal imbalance, asymmetrical shape, aging etc.

Butt Lift: You may want to consider a butt lift surgery, if your buttock skin has lost laxity and become saggy, affecting the overall contour of the area. This can happen due to reasons like; genetics, physical trauma, drastic weight loss, lack of exercise, lifestyle choices, hormonal imbalance, aging etc.

Your Journey with CosmeSurge


During your consultation, you will discuss your medical history with the doctor. Be completely open with the doctor about your concerns, habits and expectations. The doctor may take photos of your butt, measure them, and talk with you about the best possible treatment for buttock enhancement to achieve your goal. You will also learn about preparing for the surgery and planning for your recovery.

Your doctor might, delay your surgery if you are pregnant or you have certain conditions like diabetes or heart issues. The surgery will not be recommended if you are overweight.

There are certain guidelines that the doctor will advise you to follow before the surgery, like maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regularly, stop smoking at least three weeks before the surgery, strictly avoid anti-inflammatory drugs or medicines having aspirin so that the risk of excess bleeding is reduced.


  • Buttock Augmentation: Buttock augmentation can be achieved through either the use of implants or through transferring your existing fat, or sometimes a combination of both. Your surgeon may choose between a variety of incision patterns and techniques. Buttock augmentation is an inpatient procedure surgery, done under general anesthesia and takes around 2-3 hours.
  • Buttock Implant: During implant an incision will be made either on the top of both sides of your upper buttocks, toward the bottom in both gluteal creases, or with one incision placed down the center of the sacrum, or the crease between the buttocks. Then a silicone implant specially made for the buttocks is inserted either in the muscle or above the gluteal muscle on each side.
  • Fat Grafting: First, diluted local anesthesia is administered to reduce bleeding and trauma. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen your excess fat from the donor area using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula. The fat, tissue and blood that were removed through liposuction are then processed. The syringes are then connected to a special cannula. Your surgeon will use this cannula to add the fat to the buttocks through small injections all over your behind.
  • Buttock Lift: This procedure may require extensive incisions. Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. It is performed under intravenous sedation and general anesthesia based on the choice of your surgeon. One common technique of gluteal lift uses an incision just below the waistline and is combined with an abdominoplasty incision in a body contouring procedure. Liposuction may be used for improved contouring as well.
  • Another technique uses an incision just below the buttocks and is placed in the crease between the buttocks and the upper thigh. The excess skin and tissues are removed resulting in a more defined crease and sometimes smooths the skin of the back of the upper leg.

Post Surgery

Buttock augmentation with fat transfer is a minimally invasive treatment with a speedy recovery. The liposuction involved with harvesting the fat for transfer is the most invasive aspect of the procedure, and this will involve some swelling and bruising after the procedure, most of which will resolve within one to two weeks. You can resume normal activities soon after the procedure, and residual swelling will subside gradually over time. You will be able to see results immediately but should expect results to settle by six months after the procedure.

Buttock lift surgery involves larger incisions than buttock augmentation, and recovery from the procedure may take a bit longer. You should expect some pain, bruising, and swelling in the treated areas, which will subside gradually. It will take a few months for results to become apparent, but you will see preliminary results much sooner than this.

After Care

In order to have successful long-lasting results it is important to follow the below:

  • Take medication as per doctor’s prescription.
  • Wear a support garment around-the-clock following your surgery.
  • Avoid prolonged sitting for about two weeks.
  • Avoid physical and athletic activities that might stretch the incisions for few weeks.
  • It is important to attend the follow-up appointments with your doctor to keep your track of your progress.
