Butt Lift Surgery
Butt lift surgery, also known as gluteoplasty or buttock augmentation, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the shape, size, and appearance of the buttocks.
There are two main types of butt lift surgeries: the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and the butt implant surgery.
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
The BBL is a procedure that involves using the patient’s own fat to enhance the shape and size of their buttocks.
The procedure begins with the collection of fat from areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The collected fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks using small cannulas. The surgeon will carefully sculpt and shape the buttocks to achieve the desired results.
Butt Implant Surgery
It involves insertion silicone or saline implants into the buttocks to improve their shape and size. The implants are placed either within or above the gluteal muscle to achieve the desired results.
Both the BBL and butt implant surgery are performed under general anesthesia, and recovery time can vary from patient to patient. Patients are typically advised to avoid sitting or lying on their backs for at least two weeks following the procedure to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks.
If you are considering butt lift surgery, it is important to have a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon who can assess your individual needs and goals, discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure, and help you make an informed decision about whether the procedure is right for you.

Risks of Butt Lift Surgery
As with any surgical procedure, butt lift surgery carries certain risks and potential complications. Some of the risks associated with butt lift surgery include:
- Implant complications: If you choose butt implant surgery, there is a risk of implant rupture or displacement.
- Anesthesia risks: General anesthesia carries certain risks, including allergic reactions
It is important to discuss these risks and potential complications with your plastic surgeon before the procedure. A qualified and experienced plastic surgeon can help minimize the risks and provide guidance on how to have a successful and safe recovery.
What you can expect before, during and after procedure
Before the procedure:
Before undergoing a butt lift surgery, you will have an initial consultation with your plastic surgeon. During this consultation, you will discuss your desired results, medical history, and any medications or supplements you are currently taking. Your surgeon may also take measurements and photographs of your buttocks to help plan the procedure.
During the procedure:
Butt lift surgery is normally done under general anesthesia. The procedure can take few hours, depending on the technique used and the extent of the surgery.
If you are undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift, the surgeon will begin by collecting fat from other areas of your body using liposuction. The collected fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks to create a more lifted and contoured appearance. If you are undergoing butt implant surgery, silicone or saline implants will be placed either within or above the gluteal muscle.
After the procedure:
After the surgery, you will need to wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling and support the treated area. You may experience some discomfort and pain, which can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your surgeon.
You will need to avoid sitting or lying on your back for at least two weeks following the procedure to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions on how to care for the treated area, including how to shower and change the dressing.
In the weeks and months following the procedure, you will need to attend follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor your recovery and progress. You will also need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain the results of the surgery.
