Gluteal Lift and Augmentation
The shape and proportion of the Buttocks tend to be one of the most influential factors in a person’s overall body image. A Gluteal Lift helps to achieve a more contoured appearance of the buttocks by removing excess tissue and tightening sagging skin. In some cases this is all that is recommended to produce the desired outcome.
In other cases procedures such as liposuction of the flanks and thighs and Gluteal Implants or the injection of fatty tissue from other places on the body is used in combination with a Gluteal Lift to enhance the reshaping of the entire area.
In the case of a Brazilian Butt Lift, excess fat harvested from other areas of the body through liposuction is treated and injected into the Gluteal area to give shape to sagging buttocks along with a natural look and feel. For those who wish to enlarge and enhance the buttock shape, buttock augmentation may be the solution. A buttock augmentation or buttock lift helps to create a more rounded appearance and compensates for a loss of volume.
Brazilian Butt Lift
If you have tried to diet and exercise but still suffer from poorly developed buttocks, you might be a candidate for a butt augmentation with fat injections. This particular procedure is also refrred to as “Brazilian butt lift”. During the surgery excess fat is taken from other parts of your body via liposuction and then transferred to the buttocks.
Since your own fat is being transferred, this process is more natural and eliminates many of the potential risks and complications of implants. Some of the benefits of the fat injection method are no risk of implant rejection, provides a more natural look and feel, a qicker healing process and recovery time, no risk of capsular contracture, provides additional body sculpting since fat is removed via liposuction from other parts of the body, and minimal scarring.

Buttock Augmentation w/ implant
Although the buttock augmentation implant operation is fairly straightforward, there are meny technical aspects to the procedure that may be done differently depending on the surgeons training, experience, and philosophy. The operation involves placing an implant that is made of solid silicone in the buttock to improve size, shape and contour.
The implant is either round or oval, the so-called “anatomic” implant. The decision which type of implant will be used is heavily influenced by your surgeon’s preference and philosophy. The augmented buttock has a natural feel and can be somewhat firm to the touch.
