Both Buttock Implants and a Brazilian Butt Lift have a similar purpose—to modify the shape of the buttocks and to improve the overall proportions and appearance of this area. Brazilian Butt Lift achieves this goal with the use of Liposuction and Fat Transfer. Excess fatty tissue from one or more regions of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, back, and thighs, is harvested and repurposed to enhance the volume and contour of the buttocks. In Butt Augmentation, implants can also be used. These implants are similar to the type placed in Breast Augmentation; however, they are made from soft solid silicone rather than fluid-filled silicone. Each procedure has benefits, and the right approach for your desired outcome and unique anatomical needs will be determined during your initial consultation. In some cases, both techniques can be combined to obtain more comprehensive butt enhancement.
An outpatient procedure, Buttock Augmentation is performed in a hospital or accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia. After the one-to-three hour operation, you should be able to return home the same day. Beforehand, Dr. Salama will discuss with you the implant size and shape, as well as incision type and implant placement location. In most cases, a two- to three-inch incision will be made near the tailbone through which the implants will be inserted and placed, usually underneath each gluteus muscle. Bandages will be applied and compression garments will likely need to be worn for a short period. Dr. Salama will provide these and other details, as well as pre- and post-operative instructions, at your initial consultatio
The cost of Butt Augmentation will vary depending on the techniques used, including the type of implants and whether fat grafting is utilized to enhance the result. It’s important to note that there are several fees associated with plastic surgery procedures and the total cost will include the surgeon’s fee, hospital or surgery center fee, and anesthesiology fee. We recommend asking what a quote includes when comparing estimates from different surgeons. It is our practice to provide a full breakdown of the associated expenses during your initial consultation to help you make the best decision for your needs and goals.

Butt implants augment the buttocks through the placement of artificial silicone implants into the buttocks, while with a Brazilian butt lift excess fat is removed from other areas of the body via liposuction then placed into the buttocks for enhancement.
Buttock implants can be combined with other procedures depending on your health and surgeon recommendation.
You should be able to see final results after at least six weeks. However, everyone is unique and recovers at their own rate
After undergoing butt implant surgery, you should not sit for at least 4 weeks.
