About Butt Augmentation

Sometimes the size you wish your rear end to be simply isn't attainable because of genetic makeup, no matter how many squats you do. In these circumstances, a gluteoplasty can help you achieve a more proportionate and sensual body contour. Butt augmentation, also known as gluteoplasty, is an aesthetic surgery that utilizes silicone implants to enhance the appearance of your rear end by increasing the contours. Men and women nowadays wish for the sensuous look of a larger bottom, which is why Houston Galleria Surgery & Medspa in Houston, TX is proud to offer butt augmentation surgery utilizing silicone implants. If you desire a more voluptuous backside, our skilled cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marcos Ikeda can build a unique treatment plan that will help you meet your goals.

Ideal Candidates

Individuals all across Houston, TX often consult with Dr. Marcos to learn more about butt augmentation. Ideal candidates are typically men and women who meet the following criteria:

  • Are healthy overall
  • Have outstanding skin elasticity
  • Dream of a curvier or fuller backside
  • Have lost size due to extreme weight loss or age
  • Are not ideal candidates for fat grafting surgery

Surgical Technique

Houston Galleria Surgery & Medspa is proud to offer a variety of implant shapes and sizes to help meet your aesthetic goals. We commonly use solid, silicone elastomer implants because they provide a natural look and feel. All this information will be discussed in detail during your consultation where Dr. Marcos will be able to help you pick the implants that best complement your unique silhouette. On the day of your procedure, incisions will be meticulously made within the natural creases of the buttocks and your implants will be securely attached. To finalize the procedure, the incisions will be closed and bandaged. Butt augmentation is typically performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure, eliminating the need for an overnight stay.

What to Expect

After your surgery, it is normal to feel minor pain and experience bruising and/or swelling for several days. Drains are often placed and will need to remain intact for one week to allow blood and fluid to empty properly for optimal healing. Normal activities can generally be resumed within 2 – 3 weeks, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for 6 – 8 weeks. Dr. Marcos is highly skilled in the use of implants for gluteal enhancement so patients are usually thrilled to find that their scars are extremely faint. As the incisions are placed within the folds of the buttocks, you can feel even more confident in your bathing suit and shorts knowing that your scars aren't visible to the naked eye. To preserve results, you should continue your exercise regimen and healthy eating habits.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a butt augmentation procedure cost?
Your cost for butt augmentation surgery with implants will vary based on many factors. During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be made to fit your needs and budget. Houston Galleria Surgery & Medspa accepts many payment options and low-interest financing to make your cosmetic surgery as affordable as possible.

Do butt implants last longer than fat transfer?
In your consultation, the benefits and drawbacks of both options will be discussed by Dr. Marcos so you can decide which surgery is right based on your needs and wants. He will discuss how you can maintain the results of a fat transfer and implants so you can decide which procedure will be easier for you. In both procedures, it's important for you to stay at a steady weight after surgery.

Will weight gain affect my results?
Any amount of significant weight gain or loss can alter the results of your butt augmentation surgery. Both the shape and contour of your buttocks may be altered if you lose or gain a lot of weight after the implants are placed. Dr. Marcos suggests you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine in order to preserve the results of your butt augmentation surgery.

What can I expect during my recovery?
During the first 2 – 3 weeks following your augmentation, you may experience mild to moderate discomfort as your body heals. You need to avoid strenuous activity until cleared by Dr. Marcos. Additionally, you need to attend follow-up appointments during your recovery period so that he can examine your buttocks to ensure you are healing properly.

What is the difference between a butt augmentation and a Brazilian butt lift?
While a butt augmentation utilizes silicone implants, a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) transfers fat from a different area of the body into the buttocks. Good candidates for a Brazilian butt lift must have enough fat to reach their goals. If you don't have enough fat throughout your body, a butt augmentation may be your best option.
