What Is Buttock Augmentation?

Buttock augmentation with fat transfer, also known as the “Brazilian Butt Lift,” improves the size and shape of the buttocks. Women with naturally small butts often desire this procedure to add volume and fill out their jeans, skirts, and yoga pants. Those who have a poor buttock shape due to weight fluctuations or aging often request the Brazilian Butt Lift to achieve a more round, curvaceous backside.

In addition to butt augmentation, Dr. Chin also offers additional body surgeries to help patients achieve their ideal look.

Achieved With Buttock Augmentation Surgery

A Natural Look and Feel

Buttock augmentation with fat transfer uses the patient’s natural fat tissue to add volume to the buttocks, which achieves results that look and feel natural. Most people undergo this procedure so that others will notice their attractive curves without knowing they’ve had anything done.

Rounder, Fuller Buttocks

The purified fat is strategically injected into the buttocks to create a rounder shape and a voluptuous buttock size, so your buttocks look perky and full no matter what you’re wearing (or not wearing)!

A More Slender, Hourglass Figure

Some women have the chest to create the top part of the hourglass, but their derrière lacks enough size to fulfill this coveted shape, and their midsection may not be as slender as they’d like. Buttock augmentation with fat transfer removes fat from your love handles, muffin top, abdomen, and waist to create a smaller midsection and uses the fat to add fullness to your bottom to create the hourglass figure you’ve always wanted.


Buttock augmentation can give you a body about which you can be confident. Most buttock augmentation patients experience an improved self-image, which increases their confidence as well as their overall quality of life.

Buttock Augmentation Procedure

Schedule a Consultation With Dr. Chin

Fat Transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift)

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure takes about 90 minutes to complete. Liposuction is used to remove excess fat from an area of the body such as the abdomen or flanks. The suctioned fat is then purified to remove excess fluids before being carefully injected into the buttocks. Dr. Chin begins the injections deep in the buttocks and continues layer by layer until he achieves the desired look.

Buttock Augmentation Ideal Candidates

Candidates for buttock augmentation with fat transfer are in overall good health but may be somewhat overweight or have excess fat accumulations. Patients who are too thin may not have enough fat to spare for the procedure. During your consultation, you and Dr. Chin will discuss your expectations for this surgery, your health history, and the procedure process to determine whether the Brazilian Butt Lift is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there scarring associated with buttock augmentation using fat transfer?

Liposuction involves several small incisions to remove the fat, but Dr. Chin places these incisions in inconspicuous locations, and they are not generally visible once healed.

What is the recovery like after buttock augmentation?

The recovery from buttock augmentation with fat transfer is much shorter than that of buttock augmentation with implants. Patients can usually return to their normal activities after one to two weeks, but they should avoid strenuous exercise and placing direct pressure on the buttocks for at least six weeks. Patients are required to wear a compression garment for two to three weeks to reduce swelling and support their new shape.

How long until my results will be visible?

Some residual swelling may obscure your results, but this should resolve and allow your final results to be visible after about three months.

Will the results of buttock augmentation surgery look and feel natural?

Yes. The tissue used for augmentation is the patient’s own fat, so there is no risk of an allergic reaction, and the results will look and feel completely natural.

Are the results of a Brazilian Butt Lift permanent?

The fat cells removed with liposuction will remain permanently gone from that area of the body, and subsequent weight gain may cause fat to be distributed throughout the body in a different way. During the first few months, the body will naturally absorb some of the injected fat. The fat that remains after that time will provide permanent volume enhancement but may change with weight gain or loss.

How much does buttock augmentation cost?

The cost of buttock augmentation can vary widely and is dependent on many factors, including the number of donor sites, size of augmentation, the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fees, facility costs, medical tests, and prescriptions for medication.
