What procedures can be performed in association with buttock augmentation?

Most patients who want to undergo the buttock augmentation surgery often want to know if the surgery can be performed in association with other plastic surgery interventions. It is totally understandable to want to undergo multiple procedures at the same time because you can have a single recovery period, endure the discomforts all at once, and have the combo procedure done at reasonable cost.

While most plastic surgery procedures can be performed in association with each other, performing the butt augmentation surgery combined with other procedures might not be as simple as it might sound to you. The preferences also differ from surgeon to surgeon. Some surgeons claim they can perform any type of butt augmentation combo procedures to perfection, while others are more realistic and cautious. In this article, we’ll take a look at what procedures can safely be performed along with the butt augmentation.

The decision to associate other procedures with butt augmentation

Even though you might feel the urge to fix all of your aesthetic flaws at once, you should be careful when deciding to undergo butt augmentation in association with other surgeries. When a patient undergoes butt augmentation and other procedures at the same time, not only do the risks increase but also the discomforts of the patient during the recovery period.

Undertaking butt augmentation with other plastic surgery interventions is absolutely possible, but be sure to rake several factors into account. First off, you should be ready to endure increased discomfort and pain during the recovery period. Second, the risk of complications will be higher, so you should be ready to deal with that as well.

Since the butt augmentation is performed on the backside, you will not be allowed to sleep or rest on your back because it will damage the achieved outcomes and trigger other complications. Instead, you will have to sleep on your belly or sides. Except for butt enhancement surgeries, most common plastic surgery procedures are performed on the front of the body.

When you undergo butt augmentation surgery along with other procedures like breast augmentation or tummy tuck, you will not be allowed to sleep on your back and front because the surgeries have been performed on both sides. As a result, you will be left with the only option of sleeping and resting on your sides. This can be very uncomfortable for the patient.

As a result of the above-explained problem, most patients and surgeons do not go for butt augmentation with other major operations like butt augmentation and tummy tuck. However, some patients do go for buttock augmentation in association with these procedures.


Liposuction is a comparatively straightforward procedure that does not involve much surgical trauma. As such, most plastic surgeons prefer to perform it in association with buttock augmentation. The combo procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. Liposuction will be used to remove the excess fat from your body areas like the abdomen, sides, flanks, and upper back.

The removed fat will then be processed and grafted into your buttocks. As a result of this intervention, your abdomen, sides, flanks and upper back will become contoured and toned. On the other hand, the fat transfer will result in a fuller and shapelier butt.

If you are undergoing a butt implant surgery along with liposuction, the fat removed from your body areas will be thrown away, and prosthetic implants would be inserted and placed inside your booties. This combo intervention will result in enhanced abdomen and bigger, voluptuous buttocks.

Tummy tuck

Even though performing a tummy tuck in association with butt augmentation can be quite traumatic and uncomfortable for the patient during recovery, there are many patients who still prefer to have both procedures done at the same time.

During the surgery, the plastic surgeon surgically removes the excess skin from the abdomen along with the excess fat. The abdominal wall muscle is also tightened to make the abdomen appear toned and youthful. Secondly, the fat transfer or butt implant surgery is used to augment the buttocks.

The combo procedure results not only in bigger and aesthetically appealing behinds but also lets you achieve a toned, youthful, and beautiful abdomen. During the recovery period, the patient will experience more discomfort because she will not be allowed to rest or sleep on her back or front.

There are many patients who prefer to undergo the mini tummy tuck along with buttock augmentation. The mini tummy tuck involves the placement of a shorter incision above the pubic area. It also involves tightening the abdominal wall muscle and removing the skin from the lower areas of the abdomen. This surgery is not as traumatic as a full tummy tuck.

I don’t recommend performing both procedures at the same time. The recovery is challenging and the results are never optional.

Breast augmentation

There is no problem for plastic surgeons to perform breast augmentation along with the buttock augmentation, but again, recovery after the combo procedure can be quite uncomfortable for the patient. For one week, the patient will not be allowed to sleep or rest on her back and front because the pressure can cause the incisions on the breasts and butt to open up, causing excessive bleeding and poor wound healing. Also, the results achieved with breast implants and butt implants or fat transfer can be negatively affected due to the pressure. Due to the discomforts associated with the recovery after this combo procedure, most patients prefer to schedule the interventions at different times.


Buttock augmentation is an effective plastic surgery procedure to fix aesthetic problems like smaller or flatter booties. However, there are many patients who experience aesthetic problems in other areas of their bodies as well, besides having smaller or flatter buttocks. As such, they often inquire whether they can undergo other interventions in association with the butt augmentation at the same time.

In this article, we have discussed what procedures can be performed along with butt augmentation and what the patients should expect during the recovery period. If you want to know your candidacy for a combo procedure, be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
