If you’ve admired male celebrities and sports stars shapely buttocks and tried to duplicate that look, you’ll know that diet and exercise is important. But what if a healthy diet and squats, lunges and leg presses don’t give you the desired result?
To achieve a masculine looking butt, more men are undergoing buttock enhancement surgery. While Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL) are a popular surgical procedure for women, more men are having a buttock lift to create squarer and more muscular gluteal muscles. As an alternative to buttock implants, the benefits of a Brazilian Butt Lift cosmetic procedure for women and men include:
- Improving the shape, lift and volume to your lower buttocks.
- Enhancing the shape and contour of your buttock area.
- Improving the way your clothes fit.
- Feeling satisfied about your personal appearance.
- Improving your self-confidence.
What Is Buttock Augmentation For Men?
Butt augmentation for men using Vaser Liposuction involves taking excess fat via a small incision from your thighs, abdomen and back. After going through a cleaning and purification cleaning process, this body fat is then injected into your buttocks. Because the Brazilian Butt Lift surgical procedure uses your own purified fat, you’ll achieve a more natural and precise look. By using fat injections, it can also reduce the risks of infection.
The gluteal augmentation cosmetic surgery is performed under conscious sedation or general anaesthetic while your fat is extracted using Vaser Liposuction. The results of a BBL can be noticed immediately with the best results seen once the swelling has subsided. This is usually 6 weeks after your BBL.
The goal of male buttock augmentation is to create a larger and stronger gluteus medius and gluteus maximus. The goal of female BBL plastic surgery is to create softer and rounder buttocks. The plastic surgery procedures for male BBL are different to female BBL. Our team of highly trained and experienced Plastic Surgeons avoid using fat injections into the sides of your body. Depending on your weight and body fat distribution, we may remove excess fat from your hips and lower back to create a more chiselled appearance. By using Vaser Liposuction as a fat transfer method instead of traditional liposuction, over 80% of your injected fat cells will survive.
Is there an alternative to male Brazilian Butt Lifts?
While butt implants can improve the shape of your gluteal region, butt implant surgeries using silicone implants aren’t without risk. The butt implants are usually made from solid silicone and create volume. Another gluteal augmentation procedure is to use injectables, a filler called Sculptra. This procedure can be done in an office and encourages your body to form more collagen but it can take a few sessions before you reach your desired results.
If you’re fed up with a flat butt and would like a more prominent and rounder butt, BBL may be appropriate for you. Good candidates for this type of cosmetic surgery are men who want to improve the definition and shape of their butt, and who have fat reserves in other areas of the body. Butt augmentation using fat transfer is a popular alternative to buttock implants using solid silicone.

What to Expect After a Brazilian Butt Lift
After your BBL plastic surgery it’s normal to feel tender in the treatment areas. Most male patients can resume their normal daily activities within a short period of time. The recovery time after your fat grafting procedure is usually between 5 to 7 days. Your Plastic Surgeon will usually inject slightly more fat than what is needed. This is because not all of the fat transferred will be taken in by your body. It’s important to note that after this plastic surgery, it’s normal to experience some bruising and swelling at the operation site.
After your Buttock Augmentation, you’ll need to wear a compression garment for 3 weeks full time, and then 3 weeks part time. Following the procedure, you’ll need to avoid sitting on your bottom for 2 weeks and avoid placing pressure on your gluteal muscles.
For 10 days after your BBL plastic surgery, you’ll need to take antibiotics. You’ll also need to attend our clinic for daily postoperative massages for the first week.
