Questions about Buttock Augmentation

Dr. Denis Gonyon Serves Fort Collins, Johnstown, Loveland, Longmont and Nearby Areas of Northern Colorado


What is butt augmentation?

Buttock augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the shape, size and contour of your buttocks. Butt enhancement can be accomplished with either butt implants or with fat transfer.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a phrase used to describe the fat grafting method of butt enhancement. With this technique, fat is removed from an area of your body where there is excess, such as the abdomen, and then purified and injected into the buttocks to create an attractive, fuller shape. This technique has the added benefit of slimming another area of your body with liposuction.

Am I a candidate for buttock augmentation?

The only way to know if you are a good candidate is to visit our experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Denis Gonyon for a consultation. But you are probably a good candidate for this procedure if:

  • You are unhappy with the shape and contour of your buttocks
  • Your buttocks appear flat or too small, especially in relation to your body frame
  • You want to enhance the curve and fullness of your buttocks
  • Your buttocks has begun to sag, such as often occurs after weight loss or aging
  • You want your buttocks to look better in jeans, a swimsuit and other clothes

How long will the results last?

Butt augmentation has long lasting results. If you choose butt implants, the results will last as long as the implants do. Fat grafting has long lasting results as well, although initially you may require a few fat transfer sessions to achieve an optimal result, the fat grafts should be permanent and will behave like any other fat cells in your body.

What can I expect after the procedure?

Butt augmentation does require you to take some downtime after the surgery. Dr. Gonyon and our staff will provide you with recovery details during your complimentary consultation so you can decide if this is the right time for the procedure. Although the recovery can vary by patient and surgical technique, generally you can expect to take a few weeks of downtime while the treatment area and your body recover. This will include certain restrictions on activities, exercise, work duties and other things.
