Buttock augmentation

The absence of volume in the gluteal region may be congenital or acquired. In the latter case the most common cause is extreme thinning attacks. In any case, the treatment of a lack of volume in the buttocks is performed by providing the same.

The treatment of a volume defect in the buttocks is surgical.


There are two different surgical procedures to perform a volume augmentation in the buttock area. This volume can be provided by a gluteal prosthesis or by injecting the patient’s own fat.

  • Buttock augmentation with silicone implant:

    An incision is made in the intergluteal fold and the gluteal prostheses are inserted either in a subcutaneous plane or in an intramuscular plane.

  • Buttock augmentation with fat grafting:

    in the case of opting for a buttock augmentation using the patient’s own fat, liposuction must be performed beforehand, the fat must be treated and then injected into the subcutaneous tissue.

    • In this case, intramuscular fat injection is not recommended.
    • We enrich the fat with PRP, growth factors to stimulate its integration and facilitate its permanence.

The postoperative period in both cases is similar and consists of maintaining a compression garment in the buttocks region.
In addition, in the case of liposuction, the liposuctioned area must be compressed.

Our buttock augmentation procedures incorporate a treatment for scars using PRP, growth factors. We also offer the possibility of applying laser treatment to the buttock augmentation scars one week and one month after the operation.

The combination of these two treatments improves the quality and healing time of scars.

Frequently Asked Questions

Buttock implant surgery often produces an artificial effect on the buttock, which in the dressed state produces a normal appearance, but in the undressed state can result in an abnormal visualization of the contour of the buttock.
By contrast, fat grafting to the buttocks, also called BBL (Brazilian buttock lift) produces more natural and homogeneous effects on the buttock.

However, there are indications for both depending on the type of patient. For example, a patient who would like buttock augmentation and does not have fat deposits to use as a graft would be a candidate for buttock augmentation with implants.
On the other hand, a person who has sufficient fat deposits may be a better candidate for fat grafting to the buttocks.

After buttock augmentation you should avoid resting on your buttocks for at least 15 days. This is the major drawback regarding the recovery period of a buttock augmentation either by prosthesis or fat grafting.
Otherwise, life should go on as normal except for intense exercise during the first month.

Not during the first 15 days. Sitting during this period of time may cause a loss of volume or mobility of the implants, depending on the procedure chosen for buttock augmentation.

The price of a buttock augmentation ranges from 7,000 to 14,000 €.

In principle, buttock augmentation is a lifelong procedure. However, if the intervention is performed by means of implants, these may cause some complications that could lead to a reoperation. Buttock lipofilling can also be repeated in the future if the patient wishes to increase the volume of the buttocks.

Yes, fat augmentation in the buttocks is permanent. It is possible that after lipofilling injection there may be a slight loss of volume, although the residual volume is permanent and will vary according to your weight changes.

The amount of fat needed to perform a minimal buttock augmentation could range from 200 to 300 ml of fat per buttock. These figures are estimates since each patient has limited fat deposits and buttocks with different capacities.

Variables that you can control to improve the outcome of fat grafting to the buttocks include choosing a competent surgeon who will provide you with an appropriate technique. During the postoperative period, the area should not be traumatized in order to avoid the loss of the grafted cells during the first 15 days.

There being no problems the gluteal prostheses are for life. Despite this, prostheses can cause complications that could lead to a new intervention.

Rupture of buttock prostheses due to trauma is highly improbable. Over time, the implant coating may deteriorate due to chemical interaction with the organic elements in your body.
