One of the most common areas of the body that loses definition and shape because of age and weight loss is the buttock region. At Advanced Plastic Surgery Center & Nouveau Cosmetic Center in Newark, Delaware, our plastic surgeons can enhance the rear end by performing a buttock augmentation (gluteoplasty) with implants, a butt lift, or a Brazilian butt lift for a firmer, more athletic and fuller appearance.

What Is Buttocks Enhancement?

A Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, moves excess fat from other areas of the body to the buttocks in order to improve the shape and size of your backside. A buttocks augmentation with implants uses prosthetic implants to enhance shape and size.

These cosmetic surgeries add volume to the butt but do not address sagging skin. Buttock lift surgery can help patients who are experiencing excess skin and fat in the buttocks regain a better proportioned body contour.


  • Identify areas of concern and plan appropriate amount of treatment
  • Routinely under general anesthesia as outpatient, or in some cases, an overnight hospital stay
  • Small areas possible in office under local anesthesia
  • Limit sitting and lying flat on buttock area
  • Return to work within 5-7 days
  • Shaping garment worn to assist with healing

Ideal Candidates for a Brazilian Butt Lift

If you want to increase the size of your buttocks without implants, then you may be a good candidate for BBL surgery. It is important to be in good overall health and, ideally, a non-smoker. Ideal candidates for Brazilian butt lift are patients who have good skin tone on their buttocks and have excess fat that can be harvested from other parts of the body.

Your Consultation

Having a consultation with Dr. Chang is a vital part of your BBL procedure. During a consultation, the two of you will discusses all the details of your procedure. A physical examination will be performed to check your buttocks and donor sites.

Your medical history will be thoroughly reviewed to confirm your compatibility with the surgery. You will be asked about your goals and expectations before a personalized treatment plan is developed.


A full buttock lift typically involves small incisions made at the top of the buttocks, and sometimes in the hips and groin area. Excess fat and skin is removed, and the remainder is re-sculpted and pulled taut for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Typical buttock lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, lasting three to six hours. However, under some instances, your surgeon may recommend that you stay overnight.

Gluteoplasty using fat injections is also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift. The procedure consists of taking fat from a donor site on the body and reusing the fat in the buttock. The fat can be taken from the flanks, hips, or abdomen. Fat from a donor site undergoes a purification process to remove any liquids to provide more concentrated fat for injecting the buttock. After the purification process, the fat is then injected into the desired area.

Another form of gluteoplasty or buttock augmentation uses implants to enhance size and give the buttock a more aesthetically pleasing shape. In a buttock augmentation, silicone implants are used to increase and shape the buttock. The implants are solid or semi solid to mimic the buttock, gluteus, muscle. The two most common incision sites are the crease where the buttocks meets the thigh or in the crease between the buttock cheeks.


With a buttock lift or augmentation, patient should expect some swelling and bruising. It may take several weeks before you feel completely back to normal with strenuous activities being avoided since it may take several months before the area completely heals. A compression garment is worn for about three weeks after surgery to control swelling and facilitate the healing process.

Cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift

The cost of Brazilian butt lift surgery or other form of gluteal enhancement can be impacted by several factors, especially the complexity of the procedure. The overall price can be affected by the type of anesthetic used, the total surgical time, and the exact techniques utilized.
