Buttocks Lifts and Enhancements
Buttocks enhancement is one of the fastest growing areas of aesthetic surgery. There are several very common procedures, and a few lesser known ones, all of which we are experienced with.
Buttocks lift is an exciting procedure that can give fantastic lifting and tightening of the buttocks and lateral thighs*. A significant amount of skin is removed to achieve this tightening. This allows for the buttocks to be lifted and laxity reduced. Although there is tension across the incision line with this procedure, the final scar is closed with delicate dissolving sutures that leave the most subtle scar. The scar is placed horizontally, at the upper most portion of the buttocks. Because the skin is so tight following this procedure, sitting must be performed very cautiously for the first few weeks following the procedure. The results with this procedure can be very gratifying for our patients who are frustrated with the droop and sagging of their buttocks and thighs.
Autologous Buttocks Augmentation
This procedure, called pursestring gluteoplasty, can be performed at the same time as buttock lifting to simultaneously tighten and create an improved buttock volume. This procedure is particularly helpful with patients who lack volume in the buttock padding or where the majority of their buttock volume is sagging and hanging too low. The pursestring gluteoplasty, developed by Dr. Flugstad’s mentor Dr. Joseph Hunstad, is a buttock-enhancing and rejuvenating procedure. A suture is placed around the circumference of each buttock pad and is tightened to give more projection and shape to the buttock. The result is a lifted, more natural and youthful contour.

Fat Transfer to Buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift)
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves two steps. First, fat is suctioned from a donor site where you want less fat, such as your abdomen, hips or thighs. Then it is injected into the buttocks in multiple fine layers using the syringe technique. The fat is then able to gain blood supply from the surrounding tissues. There are a few benefits to the Brazilian butt lift. First, since it is your own tissue being used, there are no issues with rejection. Second, it allows you to get the fuller buttock you want while shrinking another area where fullness is less desirable. Lastly, there are no lengthy incisions with Brazilian Butt Lift.
Buttock Augmentation with Implants
Some patients are simply looking for more volume and projection for their buttocks. For those who don’t have enough fat for liposuction and fat transfer, buttock augmentation with implants is an option. An inconspicuous intergluteal incision is used, which is hidden in the gluteal cleft. We use the industry standard silicone polymer implants that are FDA approved for buttock augmentation. This procedure has a recovery of 2-3 weeks, and requires minimal sitting for that period of time.
