Quick Info


before and afters
  • Gluteal Augmentation (sometimes referred to as “Brazilian Butt Lift”) is a 2-3 hour procedure where liposuction is done to your back, hips, and other areas to harvest fat and re-inject it into your buttocks. This liposuction is also used to shape the area around your gluteal area to give you more “roundness”.
  • The fat re-injected into your buttocks can shape and augment the size of your gluteal area. Depending on your body and how you heal, up to 80-90% of the fat lasts for many years.
  • After the surgery, the recovery is about 1-2 weeks where you should avoid sitting for extended periods of time and you must sleep on your stomach or side.
  • We recommend fat injection over silicone buttock implants for safety reasons.

For many women and men, the butt is a major area of cosmetic concern. Having an insufficient or sagging butt can prevent women from wearing many clothes they would otherwise wear. While this condition may be hereditary, it can also come following weight loss or weight gain. Fortunately there is a solution. The skilled plastic surgeons at Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics can help you with a procedure known as a Gluteal Augmentation. If you feel you could use a little help with getting a tighter, rounder buttock shape, call Beautologie to find out more.

About the Gluteal Augmentation Procedure

A Gluteal Augmentation is a surgical procedure that serves to improve the size or shape of the buttocks. The Gluteal Augmentation is performed by liposuctioning fat from around the buttocks and reinjecting your own fat into the buttock to increase volume and modify the shape.

A Gluteal Augmentation is an outpatient procedure (you can go home after the surgery), and is typically completed in about 2 hours. The recovery time is about 3-4 days, but you should not sit for long periods of time for 2-4 weeks after the surgery.

Gluteal Augmentation Procedure

At Beautologie, a Gluteal Augmentation always begins with a consultation. This is because we know that understanding from both the patient and the doctor will help give you the best Gluteal Augmentation Bakersfield can provide. Your doctor will give you an opportunity to address any concerns or questions you may have. Additionally, he will lend his professional opinion to the matter, giving suggestions for the technique. In particular, we will discuss what to expect as far as volume and shape after the surgery. The consultation will take as long as necessary for both doctor and patient to be satisfied they understand one another and feel they can proceed with the Gluteal Augmentation.

During the procedure, the whole goal is to create lifted, perky and round appearance. The tiny incisions are placed where it can be easily hidden. Using his aesthetic eye and anatomical knowledge, he performs the entire procedure so your backside has a naturally fit and toned look and feel. As Beautologie patients report, they feel much more comfortable in tight fitting jeans and swimsuits following the procedure.
