Buttock Augmentation

Gluteal Augmentation

Buttock augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "Brazilian butt lift" when fat transfer is involved, uses butt implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of both to increase the size of your behind.

Preparing for buttock augmentation surgery

In preparing for buttock augmentation, you may be asked to:

  • Get a blood test
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding

Buttock augmentation surgery should be performed in an accredited outpatient or ambulatory surgical center or a hospital. This is for your safety. If your surgeon has a may informal setting, he or she may not be a board-certified plastic surgeon.

If your buttock augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis, arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.
