Gluteal Augmentation and Lift
Buttock augmentation improves the contour, size and shape of the buttocks. A buttock lift improves the tone of the underlying tissue in the buttocks. A Brazilian butt lift is a common buttock enhancement procedure.
How should I prepare for buttock enhancement?
In preparing for a buttock augmentation and/or buttock lift, 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 enhancement surgery may be performed in an accredited office-based surgical facility, ambulatory surgical center or a hospital.
If your procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.
