Will My Butt Augmentation Results Remain If I Lose Weight?

You’re a strong, independent, and beautiful woman. But like most women, you probably have something you wish you could improve. Do you dream of having a full, curvaceous butt?

One of the most common reasons women come into our office is to undergo butt augmentation. Butt augmentation is a surgical procedure that adds volume to the buttocks for a more youthful-looking backside. 

L.A. Viñas Plastic Surgery, with three locations in Florida, is here to tell you everything you need to know about buttocks augmentation and if your results remain after weight loss.

What is butt augmentation?

Butt augmentation describes a procedure that enhances your buttocks for a fuller, rounder, and more desirable size. This isn’t a new concept — 61,387 buttocks augmentations were performed in 2021 making it one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries today.

The goal of butt augmentation is to:

Buttocks augmentation generally refers to two methods — silicone implants or fat grating. Luis Viñas M.D. eliminates the need for silicone implants and focuses on giving his patients beautiful and natural results with a Brazilian butt lift

Brazilian butt lift — a win-win procedure 

Many patients are pleased to find out that a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) combines two procedures for one enhanced result. BBL involves taking fat from an area of your body with excess fat and placing it on your buttocks for a fuller result. It’s performed as an outpatient procedure done under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable from start to finish. 

Firstly, Dr. Viñas often uses liposuction to remove fat from an area of your choosing like the abdomen or thighs. Next, he purifies the extracted fat and prepares it for fat transfer. Lastly, he injects the fat into specific points on your buttocks for a more desirable appearance. 

Most patients need 7-10 days to rest and recover before going back to work. However, it’s important to note that a full recovery from BBL generally takes 6-8 weeks.

Will my results remain if I lose weight?

You should be within 10 lbs of your ideal weight before undergoing butt augmentation to ensure you maintain the best results. Small, daily weight fluctuations are normal and should not affect your results. 

Losing or gaining a significant amount of weight changes your body’s overall shape and can alter the new curves you’ve obtained through liposuction and fat transfer. It’s important to stay at a stable weight after surgery to maintain your BBL results.
