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. They truly care about you-how you feel, that you are happy with results, really they treat you like family. If anyone is considering plastic surgery, Dr. Connors is a must, he will make you perfect!"- K.E. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2015
"I had a mommy make-over including a tummy tuck, breast reduction, and liposuction. I look like a brand new person. I don’t think I realized how much damage was done to my body from 3 C-sections until the repair was done. Dr. Connors is amazingly skilled, kind, caring, and his entire staff follows his example. The nurses and desk staff are lovely and have been so helpful and responsive to me. I would recommend this practice highly!"- H.M. / Google / Oct 09, 2019
"From the beautiful and elegant décor to the beautiful and talented staff it always feels like I am with family. They are well trained in their particular disciplines and make every effort to make you comfortable and happy. The atmosphere is one of quiet confidence. I am always reassured that there could be no office of professionals that I would trust more with my aesthetic wants and needs. I travel from Central Florida to have any treatments at Dr. Connors office. They have earned my trust as well as my respect. The compliments I receive on my skin are the result of years of practiced skill by the staff. I will go no where else. thank you all. Pam Pursell"- P.R. / Facebook / Feb 20, 2019

"About 5 months ago I came into Dr. Connors office and met with his injector Maggie. I came into the office looking to address smile lines that were bothering me. Maggie informed me that the best way to address the lines I was worried about would be to inject filler in my cheeks and along the jaw line. At first I was a little hesitant about getting filler in my cheeks in fear of it looking a bit too feminine, however, Maggie reassured me it wouldn't and what a difference it made! The smile lines are gone and my face has a much more structured appearance. You've got a patient for life!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 02, 2019
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.
