A butt augmentation is a procedure that improves the size and shape of the buttocks. If you wish you had a rounder, more voluptuous backside, a butt augmentation can improve on what Mother Nature gave you. Many people who wish they had bigger, shapelier behinds choose butt augmentation to lift, enlarge and reshape the buttocks, and this surgery is immensely popular.
There are two choices to achieve an enhanced buttock: fat injections and prosthetic implants. In a fat injection augmentation, also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift, the patient’s own fat is removed from other parts of the body via liposuction and then injected into the buttocks. Augmentation can also be achieved by surgically placing silicone implants under the skin of the buttocks. Depending on your anatomy and aesthetic goals, either of these procedures can be a way to get the sexy bum of your dreams!
Dr. Kouros Azar has been using his renowned technical skill and artistic eye to deliver stunning results for over 10 years, and has sculpted Angelenos’ favorite assets.

Having ample buttocks is an indicator of health, fertility, and youth. (1) The appeal of rounded, well-projected buttocks has never gone out of style.

Silicone Implants for Buttock Augmentation
Silicone butt implants are specially shaped to be inserted either under the skin or under the gluteus maximus muscles and come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that you’ll find the new derriere that’s right for you. Buttock implants feel like natural gluteal muscle, and are made of a soft, solid silicone that will not rupture or break.
Dr. Azar performs buttock augmentation while the patient is under general anesthesia. Each implant is surgically placed into the buttocks via an incision in between the buttocks. This conceals the incision and avoids the chance of any visible scarring. He carefully places an implant beneath the gluteus maximus muscle in each buttock, and then sutures the small incision closed.
Implants are preferable for thinner people who do not have sufficient body fat for an augmentation that uses injections. However, like breast implants, these prostheses are not meant to be kept in the body forever. Butt implants will need to be replaced approximately every 10 years. (1)
Fat Transfer for Buttock Augmentation
Liposuction is the first step of a butt augmentation with fat injections. This is not only to harvest fat to enlarge the buttocks, but also to sculpt the surrounding areas so that your derriere is defined and accentuated. Liposuction for this area of the body takes your entire physique into consideration – top to bottom! Dr. Azar will carefully consider your flanks, presacral area (the area above your tailbone), hips, and both the inner and outer thighs, to optimize your results. (2) Strategy and a solid understanding of anatomy are crucial when sculpting a beautiful behind. Removing too much fat from certain areas can lead to a bottom that doesn’t hold up.
During liposuction, fat is gently suctioned through a small incision and collected. It’s then purified in a centrifuge and prepared for injection into the buttocks.
Using small, measured amounts, Dr. Azar then injects the fat into the targeted areas of the buttocks. This allows him to carefully control the shape of the buttocks. It also gives the newly added fat the best access to the nourishing blood flow that will allow it to successfully graft to the new location. Not all fat will graft successfully. Because some will be reabsorbed and processed by the body, Dr. Azar will inject slightly more fat than required.
Candidates for Butt Augmentation in Thousand Oaks
The right candidates for butt augmentation want to enhance the contours of their buttocks. Those in the Los Angeles area and beyond make the trip to T.O. for Dr. Azar’s expertise. If diet and exercise have been ineffective in sculpting a cuter booty, fat injections or silicone implants are excellent solutions. Patients who opt for fat injections should have a sufficient amount of healthy fat available. Regardless of the procedure that you choose, you should be near your target weight and be in good health in order to undergo cosmetic surgery. Smoking negatively impacts your body’s ability to recover from surgery, so you’ll need to quit before and after your buttock augmentation. During your consultation, you’ll be provided with more customized instructions for preparation and recovery from your buttocks procedure.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2019, more than 14,000 Brazilian butt lifts were performed in the United States. That’s a lot of butts! Dr. Azar is an active contributing member of this prestigious plastic surgery society and others, but his patients are always his top priority. During your personal consultation, he’ll take the time to get to know you, and learn more about your gluteal goals. After a review of your medical history and an examination, he’ll determine whether implants or fat injections will be the best path to achieving a sexy new shape.

Dr. Azar and his staff will make sure that you have all the information you need to have a smooth procedure and recovery!
Prior to buttock augmentation, patients will be asked to:
- Stop taking any blood-thinners or any other medications or supplements that may impede blood clotting.
- Take several days off to recover. It’s vital that patients allow themselves the rest they need to obtain the best results.
- Make sure that you have a designated and comfortable place to recover, and that you have an ample supply of groceries, pain medication, and entertainment.
- Plan on having a friend or family member drive you home after your procedure. We recommend that they stay the first night or two to provide any assistance during the first part of your recovery.
After your surgery, you will need to avoid sleeping on your back for about 2 weeks. You will be given specific restrictions regarding sitting on your buttocks, as well.
While experiences vary, most patients are allowed to resume work about 2 weeks after surgery and most normal activities after about 4 weeks. It’s also vital to closely follow all of the instructions that you’re given during your recovery, and attend all of your follow-up appointments so that Dr. Azar can monitor your progress.

A Brazilian Butt Lift uses a fat transfer to lift and enlarge the buttocks. This type of butt augmentation uses the patient’s own fat that has been removed via liposuction and processed. The fat is then injected into targeted areas of the buttocks.
Silicone butt implants need to be replaced or removed after approximately 10 years. A successful fat transplant should last as long as the patient maintains a stable weight.
