Buttock Augmentation

Many men and women are self-conscious about the size and shape of their buttocks and find that a strict exercise routine does little to improve the muscle tone and shape. Buttock Augmentation is performed to enhance the shape of the buttocks and give a fuller shape.

LINIA Cosmetic Surgery

Procedure Overview

Placed into each buttock area through a single incision overlying the tailbone, buttock implants are positioned to look as natural as possible for the optimal cosmetic effect. A two to three inch incision is made between the buttocks in the midline.

The buttock muscle, or gluteus maximus, is lifted up and a pocket is made just large enough for the implant. The implant is inserted into its pocket. The opposite side is then completed. Both sides are carefully examined in order to assure that the results look natural and symmetric. The incisions are then closed by using fine, dissolving sutures which will also be taped for better support.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is buttock augmentation?

    Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size, shape, and projection of the buttocks. It can be achieved through various techniques, including fat grafting (Brazilian butt lift), buttock implants, or buttock lift surgery.

    Why is buttock augmentation performed?

    Buttock augmentation is performed to:

    • Increase the volume and fullness of the buttocks.
    • Improve the contour and symmetry of the buttocks.
    • Enhance overall body proportions and create a more balanced silhouette.
    • Address flat or disproportionate buttocks due to genetics, aging, or weight loss.
    How is buttock augmentation performed?

    The specific technique used for buttock augmentation may vary depending on the patient’s anatomy and goals. Common techniques include:

    Fat grafting (Brazilian butt lift): Involves harvesting fat from donor areas of the body through liposuction, processing the fat, and injecting it into the buttocks to enhance volume and shape.

    Buttock implants: Involves surgically placing silicone implants in the buttocks to increase volume and projection.

    Buttock lift surgery: Involves removing excess skin and tissue from the buttocks and lifting the remaining tissue to create a more youthful and lifted appearance.

    Is buttock augmentation performed under anesthesia?

    Yes, buttock augmentation is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort and safety during the procedure.

    What is the recovery process like after buttock augmentation?

    After buttock augmentation, patients may experience swelling, bruising, discomfort, and temporary limitations in mobility. Pain medication and antibiotics may be prescribed to manage pain and reduce the risk of infection. Patients are advised to avoid sitting or lying directly on their buttocks for several weeks and to follow post-operative care instructions provided by their surgeon.

    Are there any risks or complications associated with buttock augmentation?

    Like any surgical procedure, buttock augmentation carries certain risks and potential complications, including:

    • Infection
    • Bleeding
    • Seroma (accumulation of fluid under the skin)
    • Fat embolism (rare but serious complication associated with fat grafting)
    • Implant-related complications (such as implant displacement, rupture, or infection)
    • Changes in sensation
    • Scarring
    • Asymmetry or irregular contours
    When will I see the final results of buttock augmentation?

    While some initial improvement may be noticeable soon after the surgery, it may take several weeks to months for the swelling to fully subside and the final results to become apparent. The buttocks will continue to settle and refine in shape and appearance over time.

    How long do the results of buttock augmentation last?

    The results of buttock augmentation can be long-lasting, especially when accompanied by a healthy lifestyle and weight maintenance. However, factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle habits may affect the longevity of the results.

    How can I schedule a consultation for buttock augmentation?

    If you’re considering buttock augmentation, we recommend scheduling a consultation with a surgeon specialising in body contouring procedures. During the consultation, the surgeon will evaluate your concerns, discuss your goals, and recommend the most suitable treatment options for you.


    It is normal to feel tired and sore for a few days and slight swelling and bruising will occur. Following the operation you will have a light dressing in place which will need to be kept dry for two weeks. After 2 weeks your dressing will be removed and the wound inspected and lightly cleaned. The scars will be firm and pink for at least six weeks and may remain the same size for several months and it is important to keep in mind that they may take up to two years to fade. Most patients are able to go back to work after a week or two. The average recovery time is between three to six weeks.
