About Composite Buttock Augmentation

Our idea of what is attractive and beautiful has changed dramatically over the past several years. This is particularly true of how we now look at the buttocks. A very full and large buttock shape is now the ideal.

To achieve this desired result the concept of obtaining a person’s own body fat with Liposuction and injecting the fat into the buttocks began in the 1990's. This is now known as the Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL).

Ideal Candidates

Prior to the Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL) buttock augmentation was done using a silicone buttock implant. This procedure however often had complications. This included mal-position of the implant, noticeable visibility of the implant, hardening of the buttock and extrusion and the implant.

A BBL does not have these complications but also has several limitations:

  1. The fat must be injected between the skin and the top layer of the Gluteus Muscle to avoid unfortunate and tragic complications
  2. The amount of fat that remains after injection is unpredictable. It is estimated that 40-60% of injected fat will remain. Because of this, a second fat injection surgery may be necessary.
  3. Fat injection often does not give reliable projection and prominence to the mid-buttock. Besides fullness, projection is an important part of the desired buttock appearance.
  4. Many individuals do not have enough of their own fat that can be obtained with Liposuction for a BBL.

What to Expect From Composite Buttock Augmentation

In 2019 Plastic Surgeon Dr. Daniel Deel Vecchio published: “Composite Buttock Augmentation: The Next Frontier in Gluteal Aesthetic Surgery”.

To avoid the previous problems that occurred with buttock implants the Composite Buttock Augmentation uses smaller implants placed in the Gluteus Muscle and is combined with smaller amounts of fat injection. This combination decreases the complications of only placing an implant or only injection of fat.

A smaller implant placed in the muscle combined with fat injection helps to minimize mal position and visibility of the implant. Because of fullness of the implant far less fat is necessary for injection. Additionally, the projection provided by the implant will not disappear and provides a long-lasting result.
