Buttocks Augmentation

Buttock augmentation or Butt Implants procedure is designed to enhance the size of the buttocks. This involves the surgical insertion of artificial implants (silicon) into the buttocks or fat from a person’s body, known as fat transfer (or "fat grafting") in order to enhance their size and shape. This surgery is frequently sought by women who are unhappy with the size of their buttocks or generally lack fat in this area or are unable to develop proportionate gluteal muscles. Some feel their buttocks lack shape, while others want to have a more sensuous backside by making them larger and rounder


An incision can be made where the cheek meets the back of the thigh or down the buttock crease. Though this area does carry a high infection risk, the cut is usually made in the buttock crease where scars are not noticeable. A pocket large enough to insert the butt implants are created either under the gluteus maximus muscle, or on top of the muscle. Liposuction may also be performed in order to further enhance the shape of the buttocks. After performing the same on the other side the incisions are closed after checking for symmetry

In most cases general anesthesia is preferred for this procedure.

The surgery usually takes about two to three hours to complete, it may vary on the size of the implant and the technique used. Since this is done as an outpatient procedure you'll be able to get discharged within a few hours of the surgery. Avoid sitting on the buttocks during the initial healing phase. With so much stress regularly placed on this area, patients may experience great pain during the recovery period.


Bleeding, infection, nerve and muscle damage are the other possible risks with this procedure. Butt implants can shift and make one buttock different than the other. Other risks include adverse reaction to anesthesia and the need for a second or sometimes third procedure. Risks of infection are higher when incisions are made near the rectal area.

The best candidates for this procedure are those who are young and in good physical health and psychologically stable. They should be realistic in expectations and should be undergoing for this surgery for the first time.


Pain, bruising and some discomfort may occur. Buttock implant patients will not be able to lie on their backs for about 2 weeks. Most surgeons recommend wearing a compression garment to hold down swelling. One can be back to work in 2 weeks.
