Many women agree that the ideal body shape includes nicely rounded and shapely buttocks. For women who are not naturally blessed with such a backside, butt augmentation can provide the desired curves. Using butt implants or fat transfer, Dr. Robert Rey can perform butt augmentation to give you a more ideal butt, complete with the volume, shape, and curves you’ve always wanted.
Benefits of Butt Augmentation

- Results look and feel very natural
- Also improves the shape of other areas of the body with liposuction
- Final results are not seen for approximately six to eight weeks
- No risk of rejection due to the use of the patient’s own fat

You will experience mild side effects such as bruising and swelling following your procedure. A specialty compression garment may be given to you to wear to reduce swelling and maintain your new shape. You should plan to sleep on your stomach and avoid sitting as much as possible for two to three weeks after your procedure so that you do not compromise your results. Most patients can return to work within two weeks if their jobs do not require prolonged sitting. You will most likely be able to resume exercise after four to six weeks. Swelling typically subsides after six weeks. Specific recovery guidelines will be given to you before your procedure.
Butt augmentation with fat transfer leaves little to no scarring due to the need for only minor, inconspicuous incisions. Butt augmentation with implants may lead to some scarring where the incisions are made, but these incisions are hidden or made as inconspicuous as possible. The amount of scarring is affected by your body’s natural healing process, and any visible scarring is likely to fade over time.
The cost of butt augmentation may vary from patient to patient depending on factors such as surgical technique, physician’s fees, and anesthesia fees. A detailed quote will be provided during your consultation with Dr. Rey.
Anesthesia is used to prevent pain during the procedure. Mild discomfort may last for several days after the procedure and can easily be controlled with prescribed medications.
Candidates for butt augmentation are typically adult women with small, flat, flabby, or sagging buttocks. Depending on your anatomy and your desired results, you may qualify for only one or for both of the surgical techniques. Dr. Rey will be able to give you more information and will help you determine whether this procedure is right for you during your personal consultation for butt augmentation.
Before your butt augmentation, Dr. Rey will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare. These instructions will include when to stop tobacco use and blood-thinning medication. Traditionally, patients are asked to refrain from these for at least 10 to 14 days before and after surgery, but Dr. Rey will provide you with an appropriate timeframe for your needs. Because you will need to make adjustments to your normal day-to-day routine during your recovery, it is suggested to plan for this beforehand. We suggest filling all necessary prescriptions, supplying your kitchen with healthy, easy-to-prepare meals, and collecting several comfy pillows (as you will not be able to apply pressure directly to the buttocks). Specialized Brazilian Butt Lift pillows can be purchased to help during the recovery period.
Generally speaking, butt augmentation with implants is better for women who need severe augmentation or who desire more dramatic results. This technique is also appropriate for women who do not have enough body fat to harvest for fat transfer. Butt augmentation with fat transfer is best for women who desire more subtle or natural-looking results. This second technique is also an excellent choice for women who have surplus fat in other areas that they’d like to tone.
Both butt implants and fat transfer will provide you with a natural-looking derrière. Because the Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat harvested from your body for augmentation, it may provide a more natural feel than butt implants; however, both are capable of high-quality results.
Unlike breast implants, butt implants are made of a solid silicone material made to withstand constant sitting, standing, and walking. Therefore, they will not rupture after insertion.
Butt implants can significantly enhance the shape and fullness of your buttocks. With implants, your buttocks will appear dramatically fuller, rounder, and firmer. This technique can produce defined curves for women who lack natural roundness and firmness, especially in the upper buttocks. The results of butt augmentation with implants are permanent.
Dr. Rey will initially inject more fat than is necessary to augment your buttocks. This is because your body will reabsorb some of the excess fat after the procedure. Once the swelling has subsided and resorption has ended, the remaining fat will stay indefinitely in the buttocks. Your results will look natural and soft, yet noticeable, and they will enhance your whole body shape.
Butt augmentation can be performed alone or along with other body contouring procedures, such as liposuction or tummy tuck surgery. While liposuction is required for patients undergoing a Brazilian Butt Lift, it is still common for those who choose to augment their buttocks’ with implants.
