Buttock augmentation is performed using either silicone implants or autologous fat transfer (fat grafting). Our cosmetic surgeon prefers the fat grafting technique, also known as the Brazilian butt lift. The Brazilian butt lift is an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery across America. Fat is harvested from another part of your body via liposuction—often the abdomen, hips or back—then transferred to your buttocks to give you a shapelier look. This technique is safe and effective for many reasons including:

  1. Your natural fat is used, decreasing the potential for complications as your body recognizes the fat as its own. Whereas, you run the risk of rejection with a synthetic implant.
  2. The amount of time required to recover is less than the implant alternative.
  3. The Brazilian butt lift doesn’t require large incisions in order to place the fat in your buttocks, leaving you with minimal scarring.

Of course, the safest way to contour your bottom is through exercise, but exercise alone may not give you the shape you’re looking for. Fat grafting is safe for buttock augmentation as long as you have enough fat to harvest and are in good health. Cosmetic surgery always comes with risks, but you can minimize your potential for complications by adhering to Dr. Pakeman’s pre-op and post-op instructions and maintaining a healthy weight.
