What are buttock enhancement surgeries?
Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation, is used to improve the contour, size and/or shape of the buttocks. This is done through the use of buttock implants.
Buttock implants are silicone-filled devices that are surgically placed deep within the tissues of the buttock.

What buttock augmentation surgery can do
Increase fullness, roundness and projection of your butt or buttocks
Improve the balance of your figure
Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
In addition to buttock augmentation procedures, a buttock lift can be accomplished by the surgical removal of soft tissue.
A buttock lift, or gluteal lift, improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat in the buttock area.
Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the buttocks.
In order to achieve a smoother and more pleasing contour, excess sagging skin and fat are removed. A traditional gluteal lift will not make a butt larger, but may improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface. This procedure may be included in a body lift or may be performed separately.
What a buttock lift can’t do
Buttock lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat nor are they intended to add volume to the buttocks. Fat grafting, buttock implants or auto-augmentation (when some of your own tissue is left underneath the skin) can be used to add volume. Liposuction is sometimes added for better contouring.

Butt Augmentation FAQs
- Who is a suitable candidate for the buttock augmentation procedure?
Good candidates for buttock augmentation should be unhappy with the overall appearance of their buttocks and desire a fuller and rounder-looking butt. Candidates should be in good overall health and close to their ideal body weight.
- What happens during the butt augmentation procedure?
The whole procedure is performed under general anesthesia and can take about 2.5 hours. The incision will be hidden in the gluteal crease’s top and won’t be easily visible. You will have to avoid sitting directly on the butt for about three weeks. However, it is okay to walk or lie down during the healing period. At the beginning of your postoperative period, you might experience some discomfort. The implants need somewhere between 2 to 3 months to settle.
- Is it possible that my implant might move around after the procedure?
Even though it is possible, the chances of your implants rotating or shifting are extremely low. The implant should stay in place and retain natural appearance.
- Can my implants rupture and start leaking silicone inside my body?
Most of the implants that are used for buttock augmentation procedures are solid silicone implants so no leaking will occur in the event of a rupture.
