Making changes to your physical appearance can enhance self confidence and overall outlook on life. As medical and technological advancements continue to develop, many plastic surgery patients are able to really hone in on particular body issues, resulting in their most desired look.
In addition to common body changes such as a breast augmentation or rhinoplasty, many patients are opting for a more pronounced, pert backside.
A buttock augmentation, also known as a Brazilian butt lift, is a procedure that reshapes and enhances the gluteal area. By doing so, a more shapely, uplifted backside is created. Patients decide to undergo a buttock augmentation for a number of reasons, often a combination of a few. These include:
- Correcting the effects of a recent weight loss surgery
- Creating more noticeable curves
- Desiring a more uplifted, shapely backside
- Lifting a sagging or otherwise unsightly butt
At Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists, Dr. Anthony Taglienti specializes in the Brazilian butt lift, performing the surgery using a method called autologous fat transfer. Through this method, fat is taken from one area of the body, cleaned and injected into a selected different area. Using liposuction, fat is removed using suction tubes from certain areas such as the hips or thighs.

After being processed, the fat is then re-injected through a small injection site in the buttock region. During re-injection, the fat is grafted in multiple layers, ensuring a smooth and uniform result.
Aftercare is an essential part of this type of procedure. Before deciding to undergo the procedure, be sure there is enough time in your schedule for rest and downtime. In addition to applied drainage tubes, a special compression garment must be worn for the first few weeks of recovery.
