Flat and sagging buttocks happen after weight loss and as part of natural aging. Butt augmentation is used to create a rounder shape and add volume to the buttocks with a fat transfer or silicone implant. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Najera, performs butt augmentation surgeries at an accredited facility in Frisco, TX (also serving Plano, Allen, McKinney & surrounding areas) using fat transfer or high-quality silicone implants to safely enhance the buttocks based on each patient’s goals. Patients should be at or near a healthy, stable weight before and after the procedure for the best results.

"Breast Cancer/ Breast Reconstruction - I was referred by my breast surgeon to see Dr. Najera for the reconstruction. When I visited the office for the first time I immediately felt comfortable. Originally I was referred to another plastic surgeon and did not feel comfortable in that office. Thankfully I ended up with Dr. Najera. His staff are very courteous and professional. Needing a bilateral mastectomy was scary but they made me feel better about the whole procedure. Dr. Najera was very professional and explained everything clearly. He loves what he does and his work shows. I would absolutely refer Dr. Najera to anyone and everyone. I am very pleased with the results of my reconstruction. Thank you!"- P. / RealSelf / Jan 04, 2017

"34, 2 C-sections and Lots of Damage from Big Ol' Babies - Frisco, TX - It has only been around 6 weeks since my tt, but I cannot say enough good things about not only Dr. Najera, but his amazing office staff. From my very first visit, I felt like everyone was genuinely interested in helping me feel better, physically and self-esteem wise. Any time I had a question, be it by e-mail or phone message, I received a response quickly, and never felt like I was silly for asking. They really want to make sure you are informed for your recovery. So far everything has healed perfectly, and while I am still swollen (totally to be expected at this stage) I could not be happier with my results. I feel so much more confident and cannot wait to be able to do all of the things with my kids that my diastasis was keeping me from before. If you are considering getting a tt or mommy makeover at all, it is totally worth it, and Dr. Najera is a wonderful choice for a surgeon. I would totally do it again."- L. / RealSelf / Aug 18, 2016
Dr. Najera will decide with the patient during the initial consultation whether fat transfer or silicone implants will be used for the butt augmentation. If fat from the patient’s own body is used, this is known as a “Brazilian butt lift”. If a silicone implant is used, the shape and size will be determined by the patient before the procedure begins. The implant will be fitted to the patient and placed over the bone, but under the existing muscle tissue of the buttocks. Dr. Najera uses the latest technology to ensure that the final position looks natural and is safe for the patient.
Most patients need 2-3 weeks of rest after butt augmentation with silicone implants. Patients should expect to have bruising and swelling in the buttocks area for a few days. Pressure and weight should be kept off of the buttocks, so the thighs and abdomen need to be used sitting or lying down. Most patients are able to resume light activity 1-2 weeks after the surgery and may exercise after 6 weeks. The incision for a butt augmentation is usually made between the butt checks, so scars will be naturally concealed.
Butt augmentation with a silicone implant will usually cost between $9,500 and $12,000. If the butt augmentation is done with a fat transfer after liposuction, the price will be higher.

Butt Augmentation FAQs@headingTag>
Dr. Najera uses high-quality silicone implants so your butt augmentation will look and feel like your own gluteal muscles. The final results after the swelling has subsided will be as natural as if you had spent weeks of doing squats at the gym!
Natural or Synthetic?@headingTag>
In the initial consultation, Dr. Najera will discuss the differences between a fat transfer and implant for butt augmentation. Natural fat is a good option if the patient has extra fat on the body that can be removed and re-deposited, but the results will be temporary since the body will re-absorb some of the fat. A silicone implant is a good option if the patient does not have enough fat for the augmentation or the patient wants a permanent augmentation. Dr. Najera will help each patient chose the method that is best to achieve their goals.
What About Sitting?@headingTag>
Patients should not put any weight on the buttocks for the first 2-3 weeks after the surgery. The patients may resume light activity and sitting after the swelling and pain are gone. Any discomfort from pressure for the first few months can be helped with a soft pillow under the buttocks. If is normal for the implants to feel strange at first, but the implants will look and feel more natural over time.
The results of a butt augmentation with a silicone implant will be permanent if a healthy, stable weight is maintained after the procedure. Any serious weight gain will affect the results by altering the shape and contour of the buttocks. Dr. Najera encourages patients to follow a healthy diet and get regular exercise to preserve the effects of the surgery.
