Gluteal augmentation is a procedure that plastic surgeons like Dr. Javad Sajan perform to surgically enhance the shape and fullness of patients' buttocks. Men and women of all ages and shapes seek butt implants in Seattle because they are dissatisfied with the shape of a sagging, flat, or under projected bottom. Gluteal augmentation may be able to help these patients regain confidence with their body image.

About Butt Implants

There are several ways of augmenting the gluteal (buttocks) area. The Brazilian Butt Lift is one form of augmentation that involves extracting fat from the patient's body (autologous donation) and injecting it into the buttocks. Another form is surgically implanting artificial gluteal prostheses. A third procedure utilizes a combination of autologous fat grafts and artificial prostheses.

Butt implants are sterilized artificial body prostheses of varying shapes and sizes. There are implants shaped more to the proportions of a woman's buttocks, and implants designed for male buttocks. Most gluteal implants currently used are made of "implant grade" silicone with a mix of firmness and softness that closely resembles the tissues of the implant area. The implants are well tolerated and offer the natural feel and look our patients in Seattle and surrounding areas desire.

Heredity, gravity, and the natural aging process all affect the shape and position of the buttocks. Gluteal implants can help augment or adjust what nature, heredity, and time cannot. Some of the benefits of gluteal implants include:

  • Enhanced shape, size, and appearance
  • More attractive balance of butt to the rest of the body
  • Clothes may fit better and look more becoming
  • Personal sense of attractiveness and confidence improves

Are Butt Implants Right For You?

If you're unhappy with the appearance of your backside due to a lack of volume, gluteal implants may offer an ideal way to achieve a more attractive shape. You may be considered a candidate for this procedure if you are:

  • In good general health, without any serious medical conditions that may increase your risks during surgery
  • Self-conscious about a flat, shapeless buttocks that is out of proportion with the rest of your body and cannot be enhanced through exercise alone
  • 18 years of age or older

Preparing For The Procedure

As with all plastic surgeries, you'll need to take special steps to prepare for your gluteal implant procedure. For example, certain drugs and herbal supplements can increase your risk of bleeding, so you'll need to inform Dr. Sajan of all medications you're currently taking. Because you won't be able to drive, you'll also need to plan to have a friend or family member take you to and from the operation. In the days leading up to your surgery, you will be instructed to obtain your compression garment, painkillers, a soft pillow and any other materials you'll need immediately after the procedure.

Butt Implants Procedure

Your Seattle butt implants procedure will take place on an outpatient basis in our state-licensed surgery center. An anesthesiologist will administer a combination of anesthesia and intravenous sedation or a general anesthesia, and you will be closely monitored throughout the surgery to ensure your safety and comfort.

Dr. Sajan will use various incision patterns and techniques based on the type of implant procedure planned for your surgery. He will make an incision either where the cheek meets the back of the thigh or at the crease of the buttock. The gluteal prosthesis will be positioned in a "pocket" below the skin, either above or below the muscle. Once the implant is positioned so that each cheek looks natural and symmetrically balanced, Dr. Sajan will close the incisions and apply a compression garment.

You will be given detailed information about your procedure and recovery including how to care for your incisions, oral and topical medications to be used, acceptable activity levels, and follow-up appointment schedule. Carefully follow Dr. Sajan's directions to help support your recovery process and optimize the results of your gluteal implant procedure.

Immediately after your gluteal augmentation procedure, it's normal to experience some post-surgical swelling, pain and bruising. For the first several days, you will be instructed to lie on your side or stomach and avoid sitting to ensure that there's no pressure placed on your newly augmented buttocks. Although you'll need to avoid strenuous physical activity after your procedure, you will be encouraged to walk around the house as soon as possible to promote an optimal healing process.

After about two weeks, you'll be permitted to begin sitting again. However, you'll need to use a soft pillow at all times to ensure that your buttocks are protected. In addition, Dr. Sajan will likely have you continue to wear your compression garment for up to eight weeks. In terms of results, they should be apparent within approximately six weeks, once all the post-surgical swelling has subsided.


As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with butt augmentation. Though rare, these risks include anesthesia complications, bleeding, infection, pour wound healing, unsightly scars and fluid accumulating underneath the skin. In addition, scar tissue may develop around the implant, which would require a revision. Dr. Sajan and his team go to great lengths to minimize these risks, so that our patients in Seattle and surrounding areas are able to achieve the voluminous buttocks they deserve in a safe and complication-free way.
