If you are looking for a more fullness and shape to your buttocks, glutueal re-contouring procedures may be right for you. A common way to enhance the appearance of the buttocks is to perform a procedure called the ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’.
The procedure is done by liposuctioning areas of the back and hips and injecting the fat into the buttocks to provide more fullness and shape. The fat grafting technique will not work well if you are too thin and have limited fat deposits. Not all the fat grafted will take and sometimes additional fat grafting sessions may be needed.
The ‘Brazilian Butt Lift’ is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery takes several hours to perform. You will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks after the surgery.
For patients not considered candidates for the Brazilian Butt Lift, gluteal implants may be considered
- Hospital or in-office procedure?
- Recovery time (home rest)?
- Incision and Scar?
- Operation time?

Small puncture incisions over the buttock.

Some women do not qualify for Brazilian butt lift if there isn’t enough fat on their body to use for plumping the buttock. Buttock implants can be placed through one hidden incision to give a very natural result. Dr. Copty is one of the few surgeons in the region to perform Buttock implants.
