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 and Dr. Vinay S. Gundlapalli can improve the appearance of the buttocks. They offer buttock augmentation by combining liposuction of back, thighs, and hips with fat transfer to the buttocks (often called a Brazilian butt lift). They perform the procedure in Mullica Hill for South Jersey, the Jersey Shore, and surrounding communities. For certain cases, they 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 or Dr. Gundlapalli.

Brazilian Butt Lift Before And After

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.

Dr. Bidic or Dr. Gundlapalli can further accentuate your curves by combining buttock enhancement with a tummy tuck or post weight loss procedures, such as a thigh lift or a body lift.

A Consultation That's All About You

Choosing which method is right for you can be difficult. Dr. Bidic and Dr. Gundlapalli have extensive experience with fat transfer buttock augmentation. Taking your aesthetic desires and unique anatomy into consideration, they will advise you on which techniques provide the best option for your needs.

How Painful Is a Butt Augmentation Procedure?

The procedure itself, whether you are getting gluteal implants or a Brazilian butt lift, is painless since it is performed under general anesthesia. Following each type of surgery, it is common for patients to feel moderate discomfort, including swelling and bruising. This can be managed with pain medication and typically reduces over the first week following surgery.

What are the risks and potential side effects of a Buttock Augmentation?

Generally, a Brazilian butt lift or excisional butt lift both have fewer risks than a butt augmentation using implants. However, much like any other surgery, there are a few side effects that are possible. This includes:

  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Uneven lumps
  • Loss of skin
  • Fat embolism

For this reason, it is incredibly important to only have your butt augmentation procedure performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with proper experience. Both Dr. Bidic and Dr. Gundlapalli are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which requires extensive training and has rigorous standards to ensure the safety of patients. 

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

Our plastic surgeons perform Brazilian butt lift surgery using a combination of liposuction and fat transfer. They first use 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, the surgeon 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, your surgeon 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.

A Brazilian butt lift is performed by using liposuction to remove excess fat from another part of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs. During the process, a small incision is made in the area with excess fat. A thin tube called a cannula is then inserted into the incision to loosen the fat and suction it out of the body.

"Dr. Bidic did an AMAZING job. This was my first surgery and he made me feel extremely comfortable. I felt like he really listened to all of my thoughts and concerns. He explained the procedure thouroughly and answered any questions that I had. If you want a surgeon who does amazing work and truly cares about your needs, I would definitely recommend Dr. Bidic and his team!" -L.S

How is a Fat Graft (Fat Transfer) Done?

A Brazilian butt lift is performed by using liposuction to remove excess fat from another part of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs. During the process, a small incision is made in the area with excess fat. A thin tube called a cannula is then inserted into the incision to loosen the fat and suction it out of the body. 

After the fat is extracted, it is then purified and injected into certain parts of the buttocks to achieve your desired look. These injections can be done at different depths to help enhance the overall shape and firmness of the buttocks. The incisions are then closed and a compression garment is applied around the treated area to control swelling.

Excisional Buttock Lift

Much like a breast lift, excisional buttock lifting improves shape, increases projection, and refines the curvature of the lower body. The surgeon 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.

How Long Does a Buttock Augmentation Last?

Most types of butt augmentation using fat transfer or a lift are semi-permanent. Since fat cells can change over time, it is impossible to achieve a 100% permanent outcome. However, many patients retain around 60-70% of the fat transferred to their buttocks, which can last for several years. In some cases, the results of a Brazilian butt lift can last decades with proper post-operative care. 

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.

How do I maintain my Buttock Augmentation results?

There are a few ways you can make your butt augmentation results long-lasting. First, make sure you follow all of the post-operative guidelines. This means that you should avoid placing direct pressure on your butt until either Dr. Bidic or Dr. Gundlapalli says it is okay. Doing so will help the injected fat graft to the treatment area.

Next, try to maintain your current weight. Large fluctuations in weight can drastically change your results and, in some cases, lead to loose skin if too much weight is lost or stretch marks if too much weight is gained.

Finally, if you smoke, you should try to quit. Nicotine hinders the body’s ability to heal after surgery and can increase the risk of complications.
