A Butt Augmentation involves adding volume to the buttocks and reshaping the area to increase projection and round out the hips. While exercise may allow some to “build a booty” genetics and other factors play a role in the shape and contour of your rear. While you may be able to tone the underlying muscles of the legs and buttocks, you may desire a different shape or contour. Many patients who choose this procedure have experienced a major weight loss and lost volume in the buttocks or are very thin and have had a difficult time building the area to their liking. This is commonly done using a technique called autologous fat grafting, or harvesting your own fat tissue from one area to be injected into another, and is sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Szymanski will discuss with you the areas where liposuction may be performed to harvest the needed fat tissue.
If you would like to increase the volume of your buttocks or reshape your rear, you should consider a butt augmentation to create a fuller, rounder looking butt. You may be a good candidate for butt augmentation lift if you are a relatively healthy adult at a stable weight who is looking to change the appearance of their butt. It is vital that you have realistic expectations and a positive outlook.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Once the decision is made to move forward with surgery, our team will schedule a pre-procedure visit and select your surgery date. Depending on the method you and Dr. Szymanski discuss, a butt augmentation lift may be performed under general anesthesia or using local anesthesia and oral sedation. Surgery typically takes about two hours to complete. If you are using fat grafting to add volume to your butt, there will be little to know visible scarring after the procedure. You will go home the same day as surgery to recover. We recommend you plan for extra help around the house for the days following your procedure as you adjust and recover. Recovery for each patient varies and depends on your lifestyle.
YOUR CONSULTATION FOR BUTT AUGMENTATION
If you are considering a butt augmentation or wondering if it may be the right procedure for you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Szymanski to review your goals and desired results. It is important that you understand and have realistic expectations for the procedure before moving forward. During your appointment, Dr. Szymanski may have you undress to more fully evaluate the area and talk through you concerns.
Deciding if a plastic surgery procedure is the right choice for you is your individual decision. We want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout the process. Before your first consultation with our office, we recommend you write down any questions you have and bring your list with you. It can also be beneficial to bring someone with you who is supportive and a good listener. If you find you have a lot of questions after your consultation, a second appointment to address your questions with Dr. Szymanski is always an option.
