Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. John Connors, offers butt augmentation surgery for patients desiring a shapelier, tighter buttock. This surgery removes excess skin and fat, and lifts the buttocks to a higher position. Patients who are candidates for this surgery are those who have experienced a weight loss or who dislike the “sagging” that comes with aging and gravity. A procedure sometimes confused with traditional butt augmentation surgery, is the Brazilian butt lift. This surgery does not “lift” the butt. Rather, it fills it out using a transfer of fat that is harvested from another area of the body. Both can be discussed in detail with Dr. Connors during the consultation.
"Dr. Connors and his staff are some of the most wonderful people I have met since moving to Atlanta.

If anyone is considering plastic surgery, Dr. Connors is a must, he will make you perfect!"- K.E. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2015
"This week I had the pleasure of having both BBL and fillers done at Dr.John Connors gorgeous, and super convenient for suburban Atlanta folks, new Avalon office. This is my first procedure I’ve had done with his office, and look forward to having the wonderful women on their laser and injectable team help me fight the clock! I want to look natural and not over done, and that is exactly the results I’ve achieved. The staff is down to earth, relatable and work with you towards the results you want. A little further down the road I may step up my age-fighting with a face lift, and Dr.Connors will be my guy. He did a septoplasty and rhinoplasty on my son two years ago. His results were absolutely wonderful. His breathing is now normal, and his nose, which had been badly broken a few times, looks great, very masculine and bump free. He’s been thrilled with his results. Also, a bonus if you are getting fillers, and are a needle-phobe, they offer nitrous, same stuff you can get at the dentist, to help take the edge off with no side affects."- J.P. / Google / May 10, 2018

"Rhinoplasty:I had wanted a rhinoplasty for many years, but kept putting it off because I was so nervous and scared. I wanted to still look like myself - just change a few imperfections. After speaking with Dr. Connors and his staff - I felt like I was finally ready. He explained everything the staff was informative and caring as well. It was the best decision! I love my "new" nose.

During a traditional butt augmentation procedure, incisions will be made under the butt cheeks along the natural fold where the butt meets the upper thighs. Any hanging, loose skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin and underlying tissue will be pulled tight to a new position. The incisions are closed with sutures. Once the incisions heal, the scars left behind will be somewhat inconspicuous because of where they reside. It is important to note that liposuction is sometimes a part of this procedure if excess fat is also a concern.
Butt augmentation surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The entire surgery typically takes about 2 hours to complete. Swelling and bruising will be evident for the first several months, but once this subsides patients are usually able to see the surgical results. It could take from 6 months up to a full year for the final results to take shape.
The cost for a butt augmentation procedure will vary depending on the extent of the surgery and whether or not another procedure, such as liposuction, was included. On average, this surgery will cost between $5,000-$10,000.

Butt Lift FAQs
Butt Lift or Lipo?
For patients who have hanging and loose skin or wrinkles under the buttocks, a butt augmentation will be necessary. Liposuction is a fat removal procedure. If the skin tone and laxity around the buttocks is healthy, and excess fat is the problem, liposuction may be recommended.
What About Butt Implants?
Butt augmentation surgery using implants is yet another option to consider. This procedure provides extra height and volume, but uses a silicone butt implant to achieve these results. Between butt implants, the Brazilian butt lift using a fat transfer, and a traditional butt lift, patients have many alternatives to choose from in order to meet their aesthetic goals. It is important to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique with us so that the desired results can be attained safely.
Weight Gain After Surgery?
Weight gain could compromise your new, enhanced figure. For the best long-term results, patients should maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
Will Scars be Visible?
Scarring is a part of this procedure. However, an experienced cosmetic surgeon will work to minimize the scarring as much as possible. During surgery, the incisions are usually placed within the natural folds on the underside of the buttocks, which helps keep them inconspicuous. For the most part, the scars from this procedure will be easily concealed with undergarments or a bathing suit.
