Butt Augmentation (Gluteoplasty)


Unlike a Brazilian butt lift, which uses a fat transfer to enhance the buttocks, a butt augmentation procedure uses silicone implants. Plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Ekstrom understands that everyone has a unique shape and profile. Therefore, at Salisbury Plastic Surgery in Worcester, MA, Dr. Ekstrom will create an individualized treatment plan that will address your specific concerns. Dr. Ekstrom will use modern techniques to strategically create incisions to insert the silicone implants. Buttocks implants come in all shapes and sizes and can be custom made if need be. The results will aim to yield a fuller, rounder buttocks that compliments your specific shape.

Ideal Candidates

Butt augmentation surgery is often requested by men and women all across the nation. Ideal candidates:
  • Desire a curvier, fuller bottom
  • Have lost significant weight and want to restore volume to their butt
  • Have excellent skin elasticity
  • Do not have enough excess fat for a Brazilian butt lift
  • Prefer something more predictable than a Brazilian butt lift

What to Expect

Butt augmentation surgery, as long as it is not paired with multiple other surgeries, is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting and will not require an overnight stay. After the implants have been placed and sutured, the patient will be educated on how to care for their incisions and new implants. There may also be a placement of drains to allow blood and fluids of the skin to empty properly during the first week after surgery. Patients can expect swelling and bruising for several days but most recover enough to resume normal activities in 2 – 3 weeks. Since butt implants are placed on the upper part of the buttocks, putting weight down on the incision area must be avoided, so patients should sit with their weight on the thighs and sleep on their bellies or sides.

Anticipated Results

With the skill and artistic vision of a plastic surgeon, the results of a butt augmentation surgery can transform the contour of the body and the patient’s confidence. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regime will still be very important to keep the body at a steady weight and not damage the surgical area. However, natural aging will continue and a revision surgery may be needed in the years ahead along with a butt lift to remove loose skin.


Butt augmentation surgery is an exceptional procedure for individuals seeking a shapelier buttocks and who wish for an effective way to achieve a beautiful backside. Following surgery, the butt can appear larger, curvier, and more lifted. Contact our office to learn more about this popular body enhancement.
