Butt augmentation is a cosmetic surgery offered by Dallas, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Beck. It is performed on patients who wish to have a firmer, fuller and rounder butt. Many factors can lead to a flat or deflated buttocks such as weight loss, age, and natural gravity. For many, this procedure is sought as an instant enhancement. Fat transfer using fat from the patient’s own body or implants are popular methods for butt augmentation. Implants are best for patients who have low volume of fat, are relatively thin and desire a dramatic, permanent solution. These implants are generally safe, and will look and feel like natural muscular tissue. All candidates for butt implants must be close or at their goal weight in order to achieve the best outcome.

Recovery from a butt augmentation procedure will depend on the surgery that was performed. It is common for swelling to last up to 2-3 weeks. During this period, the patient must avoid putting weight on the buttocks. When sitting or lying down, the weight must be on the thighs or abdomen until the buttocks are fully recovered. The scarring will be mostly concealed as the incision is usually positioned in between the buttocks cheeks. The patient will be able to go back to a normal routine after 1-2 weeks, and exercises may be resumed after 6 weeks.
On average, butt augmentation surgery will cost around $4,000 to $6,000 depending on the techniques used. Considerations include the cost of the implants themselves, as well as liposuction, which is used during a fat transfer.

Butt Augmentation FAQs
The quality of the implants used and the expertise of the surgeon are very important factors when it comes to the aesthetic satisfaction after the procedure. The implants should look and feel natural especially after the swelling subsides. When done correctly, your buttocks will look as natural as someone who spent weeks at the gym.
Natural or Synthetic?
This will depend on the patient’s body and personal goals. Natural method of fat transfers is advised if the patient has enough fat deposits that can be grafted and reinstated in a deflated butt. However, if the patient is thin, an implant is recommended as there may not be enough fat to transfer. It is also important to note that fat transfers do not last forever, and eventually the body will reabsorb some of the fat. An implant offers a permanent solution. The pros and cons of both techniques must be discussed in detail so that the best decision can be made to meet the patient’s overall goals.
What About Sitting?
In the first couple of weeks after surgery, the patient must not put any weight on the buttocks and should place the weight on the thighs instead. Once the pain and swelling subside, the patient will be able to sit and go back to their normal routine. A soft pillow in the first several months will help ease some pressure. The implants are placed on the upper part of the buttocks and so patients must not be anxious if they are sitting on the implants. Over time, the implants will take on a natural look and feel.
Any significant weight gain after a cosmetic buttock surgery may compromise the surgical results. This is a concern especially after a butt augmentation because fats are deposited in the buttocks area first, which will affect the shape and contour the surgery already achieved. It is best to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and regular exercise to ensure the long-term effect of this procedure.
