What Is the Best Butt Lift for Me?

A perky, curvy backside has been one of the most sought-after features of the past decade. Thanks to its resurgence in popular culture, women everywhere are wanting to trade in their flat backsides for voluminous derrières. Whether their backside is naturally flat, or aging and weight fluctuations have caused the behind to lose its shape and volume, a lackluster butt can negatively affect a woman’s confidence. Butt augmentation takes small, flat, sagging, or asymmetrical buttocks and turns them into a beautiful, confidence-enhancing feature. There are many options for achieving the full, curvy, and lifted backside you desire. While all of them will enhance the derrière, they all provide unique benefits.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting, more commonly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, has gained international popularity for its ability to shape and enhance the butt. This procedure is performed in a two-step process. The first involves attaining the fat needed for transfer. Fat is extracted from the abdomen, upper thighs, or lower back through liposuction. From here, the fat is purified and separated so that only the highest-quality fat remains for re-injection. Dr. Mesbahi takes the purified fat and injects it into multiple areas of the buttocks to provide fullness and lift.

The Benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift

  • Provides the most natural look and feel for the buttocks
  • Offers full body sculpting as fat is removed from the abdomen, thighs, and back
  • Involves a low risk of infection, allergies, or rejection of the additional fat
  • Provides long-lasting results

Butt Implants

Before the use of fat grafting, butt implants were the highest standard for butt augmentation and are still popular today. Butt implants are made of solid silicone and are offered in a variety of shapes and sizes. These implants are inserted into the buttock through an incision made in the natural crease between the butt cheek and thigh to prevent visible scarring.

The Benefits of Butt Implants

  • Creates a dramatic transformation
  • Ideal for those who don’t have enough excess fat on their body to use for fat grafting
  • Provides permanent results


For some women, their dissatisfaction with their backside doesn’t stem from a flat butt; instead, it comes from excess fat in the buttock region. This excess fat may cause the butt to look disproportionate with the rest of the body and can lead to a negative self-image. For these women, liposuction is the preferred method. This procedure uses a cannula and suction device to remove unwanted fat. Liposuction of the buttocks will reveal a firmer, smoother, balanced, and lifted derrière.

The Benefits of Liposuction

  • Provides permanent removal of fat
  • Ideal for women who desire firmness but not an increase in size
