Buttock Enhancement

Due to aging and weight fluctuations, the butt tends to lose size and shape over time. This can affect the overall contours of the butt and thighs. Many women find that their flat backside prevents them from having the flattering physique they desire. Buttock enhancement surgery can help patients achieve a curvaceous, well-proportioned butt that complements the rest of their body. This procedure is carried out via fat transfer, which involves the removal of fat from one area of the body using liposuction and injecting the purified fat to shape and add volume to the buttocks

Common Reasons for Having Buttock Enhancement

When fat is injected into the buttocks, it will be molded and shaped to create a more “round” appearance. Patients can expect firmer, more attractive contours after undergoing buttock enhancement. By adding volume and restoring the shape of the butt, patients can also achieve even curves that create a balanced appearance with the rest of the body.

Common Buttock Enhancement Concerns

As with any surgical procedure, people may be apprehensive and have many concerns in regards to undergoing butt enhancement surgery. With minimal pain and discomfort, this procedure is safe and effective, and it can help patients achieve satisfying results.


  • Scarring

    Many people are afraid of having visible scarring. Buttock enhancement involves only small incisions in the targeted areas to remove excess fat, and thin needles are used to inject the fat into the buttocks. Therefore, no scarring will be visible on the buttocks, and only minimal scarring may be apparent in the liposuction area that will fade over time.

  • Recovery

    The fat transfer technique for butt enhancement requires a similar recovery to liposuction, including about one week off of work and several weeks of refraining from strenuous activities. After butt augmentation, patients should also refrain from putting pressure on their buttocks for several weeks.

  • Pain

    With the latest liposuction techniques involving the gentle removal of fat, patients experience minimal pain and discomfort. Some minor swelling and bruising may be apparent for the first few weeks, and any discomfort can be controlled with prescribed medication.

  • Complications

    Considering that buttock enhancement involves the transfer of one’s own fat, typically it is safe and poses no risk of allergic reactions. Most patients have a positive recovery and rarely experience any major complications.
