If you’ve tried and failed at changing your body shape, particularly your buttocks and no amount of Boot Camp training has helped, you may want to consider, a popular cosmetic procedure called a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). A Butt lift or buttock augmentation procedure is effective to shape, contour and augment your derrière. An expertly performed BBL by Dr. Manuel Peña, can alter and improve the shape and size of the buttocks.
Why a Buttock Augmentation?
Over time, the muscles and superficial tissues in the rear may lose tone. For others, genetics may have left them with buttocks that are small, undefined, or even flabby. Cosmetic buttocks enhancement is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure. For women who would like to improve the size, shape and contour of the buttocks, Dr. Manuel Peña is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Naples, FL who offers two effective gluteal augmentation procedures: the Brazilian Butt Lift and the buttocks augmentation with implants or fat transfer.
The body contouring surgical services offered at Peña Plastic Surgery can help you address a variety of concerns; such as, excess fat, sagging skin and other age-related or post-pregnancy and/or significant weight loss from bariatric surgery. We perform body contouring on men and women who are in good health and are interested in improving their appearance.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift (or autologous buttock augmentation) is a body sculpting technique that enhances the butt area by creating a firmer, more prominent profile. The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure uses your own fat cells to augment the area. The projection of the buttocks is further enhanced by aggressive liposuction of the waist to enhance the curves. The combination of these two procedures is what makes the procedure so effective!
Instead of using an implant, Dr. Peña harvests fat cells from an area of the body where there is extra fat to spare. The fat cells are gently removed, purified, and injected into the buttocks, usually into the upper and central portion. After numerous fat injections, the buttocks appear more perky, attractive and sensual. The result is a beautiful shape that improves overall body proportions, as well.
Buttocks augmentation is performed to help patients with small, undefined buttocks achieve a more prominent shape. Dr. Peña performs this surgery using your own fat or combined with a butt lift. In a traditional “butt-lift” incisions are placed above the buttocks and the tissues are pulled up and reattached at a higher point like pulling up your jeans. Whether you want to add curves or increase size, the buttocks augmentation allows for a high level of flexibility and personalization with long-lasting results.
Buttocks Lift Surgical Procedure
Dr. Peña advises patients that the following are steps he uses in a buttock augmentation/shaping surgery:
- Anesthetization with intravenous anesthesia.
- Thick areas of the body liposuction are used to obtain fat for the augmentation.
- The waist posterior is treated with liposuction to maximize the buttock projection.
- The steps are repeated on the other buttock.
- Sutures are used to close the incision sites, and the buttock area is bandaged.
- If a lift is indicated, the tissue that would normally have been removed is tucked under the buttocks to give the desired shape.
Recovery period includes avoidance of the sitting position for up to ten days except for bathroom breaks!
The buttocks augmentation or lift may be performed as part of body shaping procedure called the body lift.
