Butt Lift and Augmentation

Butt Lift & Augmentation Overview

Oklahoma City plastic surgeon, Dr. Clinton Webster, performs butt lift surgery for individuals seeking a shapelier buttock. It is a body contouring surgery that is often reserved for weight loss patients who have excess skin and wrinkling under the butt cheeks. During this surgery, Dr. Webster will surgically remove excess skin and pull the remaining skin up and secure it tightly with sutures for a lifted appearance. Dr. Webster will evaluate how much tissue exists and may incorporate a Brazilian butt lift

A Brazilian butt lift takes fat from one area of the body using liposuction, and transfers it to the behind until the desired shape and fullness has been attained. A deflated, flat butt can be caused by aging, weight loss, and gravity. Dr. Webster uses the latest advancements in fat transfer techniques so that patients receive safe and lasting results, with gorgeous and natural looking outcomes. 

Buttock augmentation using implants may be a better choice for individuals with low body weight.  The best candidates for this procedure are those who desire a firmer, fuller butt. These options can all be discussed during the initial consultation.

Butt Lift & Augmentation Surgical Techniques

During a traditional butt lift procedure, incisions will be made under the butt cheeks along the natural fold where the butt meets the upper thighs. Any hanging, loose skin will be trimmed, and the remaining skin and underlying tissue will be pulled tight to a new position. The incisions are closed with sutures. Once the incisions heal, the scars left behind will be somewhat inconspicuous. It is important to note that liposuction is sometimes a part of this procedure if excess fat is also a concern.

During the initial consultation, Dr. Webster will perform a physical examination to assess your body and determine where to perform liposuction to extract fat necessary to perform the transfer. The fat will be removed and processed for a healthy, effective transfer. It will then be injected through a syringe into the buttocks. This process will take place over several steps, and many layers may be used until the desired result is achieved. The incisions from a Brazilian butt lift are very small.  Scarring after the procedure is minimal. The result will look and feel natural.

Butt Lift & Butt Augmentation During/After Surgery

Butt lift surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete. Swelling and bruising will be evident for the first several months, but once this subsides patients are usually able to see the surgical results. Results can take from 6-12 months to take shape. 

A Brazilian butt lift is also considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours. Following surgery, patients will experience swelling and bruising in both the fat removal areas as well as on the buttocks. It will take about 3 full months for the body to recover and adjust to the new contour and shape.

The fat transfer technique can achieve good results and many patients feel that this procedure is safe and natural. Over time, some of the injected fat will absorb naturally into the body.

Butt Lift & Butt Augmentation FAQs


For patients who have hanging and loose skin or wrinkles under the buttocks, a butt lift will be necessary. Liposuction is a fat removal procedure. If the skin tone and laxity around the buttocks is healthy, and excess fat is the problem, liposuction may be recommended.  


Butt augmentation surgery using implants is yet another option to consider. This procedure provides extra height and volume but uses a silicone butt implant to achieve these results. Between butt implants, the Brazilian butt lift using a fat transfer, and a traditional butt lift, patients have many alternatives to choose from to meet their aesthetic goals.  It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique with your surgeon.


Weight gain could compromise your new, enhanced figure. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.


Scarring is a part of this procedure. An experienced plastic surgeon will work to minimize the scarring as much as possible. During surgery, the incisions are usually placed within the natural folds on the underside of the buttocks, which helps keep them inconspicuous. For the most part, the scars from this procedure will be easily concealed with undergarments or a bathing suit.


Both techniques are common among plastic surgeons and both achieve good results. The biggest factor is on how long you wish the enhancement to last. Implants are long lasting and may be better if you want the look to stay for a long time. Fat transfers do not last forever. In fact, some of the fat used during this process will be reabsorbed into the body. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages with your surgeon and come to an agreement based on your aesthetic goals and anatomy.


If the implants are placed correctly, they will look and feel natural. It is important to find a reputable, skilled surgeon to perform the surgery who has expertise with placing butt implants. Done correctly, butt implants look like you have spent hours at the gym!
