First popularized at the beaches of Brazil, a full butt has become very popular in America. Buttocks augmentation surgery, also known as a Brazilian butt lift, adds volume to the butt while removing unwanted fat from another area of the body. Using a fat transfer and graft, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rafi Bidros helps Houston area patients achieve a fuller, rounder butt for a youthful, curvy appearance with buttocks augmentation surgery using fat grafting. Butt augmentation by fat transfer can help you fill out clothes better and give you a more proportionate appearance. Since the Brazilian butt lift uses the patient's own fat, the results are more natural-looking with curves in all the right places.

"Dr. Bidros and his staff were very friendly and professional from the start. They all treated me with utmost respect and gave me their honest opinions while I was going through my planning for my procedure. When I was doing my research on finding the right surgeon for me, I saw great reviews and pictures of his work. When I went in for my consultation, I saw albums of his many travels to perform procedures for children with cleft palates etc. which melted my heart and showed me that Dr. Bidros is a selfless man that cares for others and does this line of work for all the right reasons. I literally had no pain or bruising after my surgery and my results are phenomenal! Healing time was also minimal! Dr. Bidros is very talented and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family and will go to him for any future procedures! Thank you Dr. Bidros & staff!"- J.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017

"I agree with a previous review, being referred to Dr. Bidros and his staff was a true blessing. I absolutely love Dr. Bidros, Mandy, Jackie and Connie. I was referred to him by my breast surgeon. He and his staff are so caring, kind, educational and compassionate. My personal experience was one of breast cancer reconstruction. I have been exceptionally pleased. When asked about breast cancer; I say the best thing that came out of a really horrible, frightening situation, are the highly skilled and talented surgeons and people that I have met along the way. He and his girls are at the top of that list. I am very grateful and extremely blessed to have been directed to his office and highly recommend him."- M.B. / Google / Dec 31, 2017
Butt augmentation surgery begins with liposuction to remove excess fat from the body. Dr. Rafi Bidros will determine the best areas for fat collection during your consultation, but the most common areas are the stomach, hips, back, and thighs. Next, the harvested fat cells are purified, prepared, and injected into the buttock area in several layers. Dr. Bidros will continue adding fat until the patient’s desired volume is reached and the buttocks has a smooth, even appearance. In most cases, Dr. Bidros will add slightly more fat than the patient needs to compensate for fat that will be reabsorbed by the body during the recovery period.
Dr. Rafi Bidros will perform your fat grafting in an accredited surgical facility under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your surgery. Drainage tubes and/or compression garments may be used to improve healing. Patients will need to avoid sitting for at least the first 10 days and after that, sitting on a soft pillow will help prevent pressure on the area for at least 8 weeks. Most patients are able to return to work in 2-3 weeks and can usually return to their exercise regimen in 8-10 weeks. As the swelling subsides, you will begin to see your results of buttock augmentation: a long-lasting, fuller, curvier behind.

Butt Augmentation FAQs
Not Enough Fat?
For patients who do not have enough excess body fat to achieve the volume and shape they desire, butt implants may be a better option. Using flexible silicone implants placed below the gluteal muscles, butt implants can achieve results similar to butt augmentation by fat grafting.
Add a Lift?
While the added volume will decrease any sagging skin in the buttocks area, you may still need to add a butt lift to your augmentation for your best results. Dr. Bidros will remove any excess skin to prevent sagging skin from masking your augmentation results.
Brazilian Butt Lift?
While it is called a Brazilian butt lift, this procedure is actually a buttocks augmentation using fat grafting. Unlike a butt lift, a Brazilian butt lift does not remove excess skin or reshape the position of the buttocks. If you’re wondering what’s Brazilian about this, look at the full, round butts on the beaches of Brazil that inspired this procedure to get all the proof that you need.
