What you need to know about butt augmentation

This might be due to a number of factors, including weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and the natural aging process. Luckily, there is a way to restore your butt to its former glory: with butt augmentation surgery.

What is butt augmentation?

Butt augmentation is an elective and cosmetic procedure that can add volume and definition to your behind. It is often done using implants, but fat grafting (transferring fat from another part of your body) is another popular option.

Is butt augmentation right for me?

The best way to determine if butt augmentation is right for you is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. They will be able to evaluate your individual case and recommend the best course of treatment.

If you’re considering butt augmentation, here’s what you need to know.

  • There are two primary types of butt augmentation: implants and fat grafting. Implants are the most common type of butt augmentation. They are usually made of silicone and come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey will place the implants through incisions in your buttocks. Fat grafting is another popular option that involves taking fat from another part of the body (like your thighs or abdomen) and injecting it into the buttocks.
  • The results of butt augmentation are not permanent. Implants and fat grafts can last for many years, but they are not permanent. You might need additional surgery down the line to maintain your results or to reposition implants if they shift with time.
  • Butt augmentation is a major surgery. Butt augmentation is a major surgery that should only be performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. The procedure typically takes 2-3 hours to complete, and you will need to stay in the hospital overnight for observation.
  • There are risks associated with butt augmentation. As with any surgical procedure and medical treatment, there are some risks associated with butt augmentation. These include infection, bleeding, and nerve damage. Be sure to discuss all these potential side effects and risks with your surgeon prior to undergoing this procedure.
