Also known as Brazilian Butt Lift or Natural Buttocks Augmentation
Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances and reshapes your gluteal area, providing you with an uplifted and shapelier buttock profile. In the past ten years, this procedure has become increasingly popular worldwide, with shapely buttocks often seen as a symbol of femininity and sensuality. A popular method for enlarging and reshaping your buttocks is fat grafting using your own natural fatty tissue, popularly referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, buttock augmentation through fat transfer is one of the fastest growing forms of cosmetic surgery. Buttock implant procedures are not as simple or as common as breast implants, and many patients want to avoid implant surgery in a sensitive area like the buttocks. Natural Buttocks Augmentation is an option for women who are looking for an alternative to buttock implants

Buttocks Augmentation FAQs
How is Natural Buttocks Augmentation Performed?
Natural Buttocks Augmentation is accomplished through fat transfer, a surgical procedure that can also be used for Natural Breast Augmentation. Fat transfer involves two separate procedures within the same surgery. First, Dr. Serrao uses gentle liposuction to remove excess fat from your problem areas such as the hips, flanks, thighs, or abdomen. The fat is then processed and injected into the buttocks in strategic locations using special tubes called cannulas. Unlike butt implants, a fat transfer procedure does not require large incisions. The entire procedure is done while you’re awake using mild sedation and tumescent fluid for adequate numbing of the areas treated.
Dr. Serrão will inject the fat at various depths to create a rounded and contoured look paying special attention to the upper buttocks, creating a youthful, uplifted look. Patients who elect to have this procedure gain a double benefit of having unwanted fat removed from one part of the body, resulting in a leaner and more toned appearance, while also having the shape of the buttocks improved.
Is this procedure approved or is it controversial?
Many surgeons remember the poor results that used to occur in the past when fat transfer was used. We now have improved techniques and technologies that help maintain the survival of the fat. Thus, better survival of the fat results in longer results. One such technology is the AquaShape BodyJet Water-Assisted Liposuction technique that harvests the fat in a more gentle fashion. Recent clinical studies have shown up to an 85% fat cell survival rate from natural fat harvesting using this innovative technology.
Will the Fat Transfer Survive?
Using newer technologies, most of the fat does survive. Many times one sees 60% to 85% fat survival. However, some patients may need a second or third fat transfer to continue to restore adequate volume within the buttocks depending on their desired outcome.
How is Natural Buttocks Augmentation different from artificial implants?
Unlike artificial implants, natural fat allows more flexibility to shape and contour exactly the way you want, leading to more personalized, natural-looking results. Many patients like the idea of using their own natural fat instead of introducing foreign materials into the body since there’s a lower risk of infection or other complications. And of course, with Natural Buttocks Augmentation, you’ll be able to take advantage of outstanding body sculpting in the donor areas.
What Type of Results Can Be Expected From Natural Buttocks Augmentation?
Following a butt augmentation fat transfer procedure, there is the possibility that some of the transferred fat will be reabsorbed by the body. A skilled cosmetic surgeon will use a layering technique while micro-injecting the fat to minimize the reabsorption rate and insure that the final result is smooth and uniform. This is another important reason to consult a trained and experienced surgeon for your buttock augmentation procedure.
Most women will benefit from some reshaping and lifting of their buttocks. Adding volume to even the most toned gluteus can improve a woman’s profile. Many of today’s body-conscious fashions are designed with a rounded backside in mind. The Brazilian Butt Lift can help you fill out your clothes and increase your sense of self-esteem and attractiveness.
Can I do Natural Buttocks Augmentation even if I don’t have much fat?
You must have an adequate amount of fat on your body for the fat harvesting technique. Dr. Serrão can usually find enough fat in most people, but only a consultation with him will allow you to know if you are a candidate. In rare instances, he may suggest that you gain a few pounds for adequate fat harvesting for the Brazilian Butt Lift.
What Is the Cost of Natural Buttocks Augmentation?
The cost of any procedure varies from patient to patient dependent on the type of surgery that is performed. All of our fees will be discussed with you during your consultation. You will find our charges to be very fair and competitive for the Orlando area. Several financing options are also available at Serrão Rejuvenation Center. We welcome you to call our office for more details on fees and be sure to check our current specials.
What is the downtime and post-operative period like?
After the procedure is performed, you must wear a compression garment with buttocks support to reduce swelling for 4 to 6 weeks. In addition, you will not be able to sleep on your back and limit pressure on the buttocks for approximately 4 weeks because that could reduce the survival rate of the fat transfer. Our health care team will instruct you on proper sitting techniques.
The area will be swollen, bruised and tender, but these changes all go away. Most people feel comfortable within a few days after the procedure and are able to resume all normal activities after 6 weeks. You will be given complete post-operative instructions at your pre-operative visit with Dr. Serrão.
When can I go back to work?
Most people can return to work in 1 to 2 weeks
What are other options for Buttock Augmentation?
Butt implants can be inserted to augment the buttocks. They can move and make your buttocks look distorted over time. However, they are the best alternative for women who have no fat to harvest. If you have enough donor fat, the preferred method is the fat injections buttocks lift. This method results in the most natural and sensual look for the buttocks area. The fat transfer method also has a lower risk of infection compared to the butt implant procedure. Plus, you get the added benefit of liposuction of other body areas. The combination of liposuction and fat injections produces the most attractive and natural profile.
How do you avoid unnatural looking results?
Creating natural appearing buttocks requires artistry, good judgment, and excellent technique. Dr. Serrão takes pride in creating natural appearing buttock augmentation results, and is sought after by patients from around the world for Brazilian Butt Lift procedures.
Who is Good Candidate for Natural Buttocks Augmentation?
The best candidates for buttock augmentation are women in good health with realistic expectations. They want to improve the appearance of their buttocks and have some extra fat on another part of their body that can be removed with liposuction and harvested for the fat transfer procedure.
