Many women — and men — are not satisfied with the size or shape of their buttocks. With advanced techniques and surgical and artistic skill, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Bidic can improve the appearance of the buttocks. He offers buttock augmentation by combining liposuction of back, thighs, and hips with fat transfer to the buttocks (often called a Brazilian butt lift). He performs the procedure in Vineland for South Jersey, the Jersey Shore, and surrounding communities. For certain cases, Dr. Bidic will also excise tissue above the buttock to raise the tissues — like a breast lift for the buttock.
If you want to enhance your buttocks, choose an accomplished plastic surgeon who will surpass your expectations for your surgery and your results. Request your consultation online, or call (856) 362-8898 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Bidic.

Are You a Good Candidate for Buttock Augmentation?
Buttock augmentation is becoming increasingly popular — both at American Surgical Arts and throughout the country — with women and men who would like to add curves and fullness to their rear ends. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you are in good health, don't smoke, and have one or more of the following motivations:
- You have tried unsuccessfully to build and shape your buttocks through exercise.
- Your buttocks have become lax and flattened after weight loss or as you've gotten older.
- You feel that you don't fill out clothing the way you'd like to.
A Consultation That's All About You
Choosing which method is right for you can be difficult. Dr. Bidic has extensive experience with fat transfer buttock augmentation. Taking your aesthetic desires and unique anatomy into consideration, he will advise you on which techniques provide the best option for your needs.
Your Buttock Augmentation Procedure
All methods of buttock augmentation require general anesthesia, and you will need someone to drive you to and from your surgery.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Dr. Bidic performs Brazilian butt lift surgery using a combination of liposuction and fat transfer. He first uses liposuction to gently collect fat cells that will then fill out and reshape the buttocks. The fat cells are carefully extracted so they remain viable and able to reestablish a blood supply once they are transferred back into the body.
When performing the liposuction step of this procedure, Dr. Bidic not only collects fat, but also uses it as an opportunity to sculpt areas around the buttocks, such as the hips, waist, and thighs. This further defines and frames the buttocks, making them appear fuller before he performs fat transfer.
Next, Dr. Bidic purifies the fat and carefully injects it into predetermined areas of the buttocks with a fine needle. This process requires an aesthetic eye and a skilled hand to place the fat where it will best enhance body contours and proportions.
Excisional Buttock Lift
Much like a breast lift, excisional buttock lifting improves shape, increases projection, and refines the curvature of the lower body. Dr. Bidic typically places the incision in the crease between the buttocks and then horizontally above the buttocks, but low enough to be covered by swimsuits and underwear if possible. Excess skin is removed and the buttocks are lifted and tightened.
It's important to be at or near your goal weight before undergoing this procedure. If you lose a significant amount of weight afterwards, you will likely end up with loose skin again.
The use of gluteal implants is permitted in the United States; however, these implants do not currently have approval from the FDA. Breast implants do not serve as a viable alternative for gluteal implants as they are not designed for the buttocks. They produce an unnatural shape and are very susceptible to rupture.
What to Expect After Surgery
After buttock augmentation, you should not sit on the buttocks or lay on your back for 2 to 3 weeks. During this time, you will wear a compression garment to promote comfort and healing. Discomfort, bruising and swelling - both at the liposuction sites and in the buttocks - are all to be expected following this procedure. Most patients return to work 2 weeks after their buttock augmentation and resume their typical daily activities within 4 weeks.
