Buttock Augmentation & Brazilian Butt Lift
Have you long wanted bigger and shapelier buttocks? Have you tried gaining weight, losing weight and every exercise available to try to get the buttocks you desire? The buttocks are a very difficult area to shape on your own, but buttock augmentation is a procedure with a very high success rate that is becoming more and more popular as women learn about its great results.

Why Buttock Augmentation or Brazilian Butt Lift?
As noted above, it is very hard to reshape the buttocks with diet and exercise, but they are very important to the appearance of a woman’s body. Shapely round buttocks can make the waist and thighs appear smaller, bringing the body into a more pleasing proportion. Properly proportioned buttocks can also help convey a more youthful, healthy appearance.
Although for many years cultural standards of beauty were dominated by thin, linear figures, the balance has slowly been swinging in favor of more curvaceous body shapes, including an appreciation for properly proportioned buttocks, the type of buttocks many women are unable to achieve on their own. As a result, buttock augmentation has grown in popularity in recent years.
Types of Buttock Augmentation
If you are considering buttock enhancement, it is important to understand the distinction between the two most commonly performed types of the procedure:
In buttock augmentation with implants, solid silicone implants are usually inserted within the buttocks, under the muscle. Although this procedure is an alternative for women who have little or no fat to be used for augmentation, it is not our preferred method for most cases. If one lacks sufficient fat, then we encourage the patient to gain weight to be able to undergo fat transplantation. Buttock augmentation with implants requires a longer healing time (about four to six weeks before a full return to normal activities), patients experience prolonged pain, and the implant may be rejected by the body or displaced by the action of the muscles. In addition, there is a higher incidence of infection. Furthermore, it doesn’t feel natural.
Buttock augmentation with butt fat injection is a much preferred and more popular method of buttock enhancement. The technique has evolved in the past few years, allowing for improved and better results. First, liposuction is used to remove fat from donor sites, which leads to additional body contouring. The fat is then processed and injected into the buttocks in very small injections uniformly through the area to be augmented. Some surgeons freeze the excess fat for further grafting. Dr. Lefkovits does not subscribe to this method because of the high rate of absorption. This procedure has several advantages, including:
Because of these reasons, Dr. Lefkovits recommends augmentation with your own fat. But it’s important to be aware that in about 20% of patients, a second grafting may be necessary.
The future of fat grafting may involve stem cells, which show promising results but as of now are not available nor approved for use in the United States.
The Brazilian Butt Lift Difference
A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure aimed to enhance the size and shape of your buttocks using existing fat from other parts of your body. Brazilian butt lifts are a more natural alternative to a traditional butt lift that uses implants. The intended results of a Brazilian butt lift are immediate.
If you are one of the many individuals who have smaller buttocks, you likely have found yourself frustrated with the appearance of your buttock. Although years ago it was in vogue to have an ultra-slim figure, today’s trends favor a more curvaceous figure. Dr. Lefkovits proudly offers buttock augmentation using fat transfer, which is referred to as Brazilian Butt Lift. This treatment is safer to use than other buttock augmentations and yields natural-looking results. Dr. Lefkovits was one of the first plastic surgeons in the U.S. to introduce this procedure and has been performing it since 2001. He has been interviewed by various national and international magazines, newspapers and TV media.
The procedure lift differs from other buttock-enhancement procedures because our plastic surgeon will use fat from other parts of your body to augment your buttocks. Other procedures, such as liposuction, may be used to ensure an overall lifted, natural look.
There are several benefits of choosing a Brazilian butt lift, including:
Our plastic surgeon will meet with you before your Brazilian butt lift to discuss your procedure and address any questions that you may have.
