What is Revision Butt Augmentation?

If you have previously undergone a butt augmentation procedure and are unsatisfied with the results, you may consider revision butt augmentation. This procedure involves correcting any issues or complications from the previous surgery and enhancing the appearance of the buttocks.

Benefits of a Revision Butt Augmentation

Revision butt augmentation can address several concerns, including:

  • Implant displacement or migration
  • Uneven or asymmetrical buttocks
  • Implant rupture or leakage
  • Capsular contracture (scar tissue formation around the implant)
  • Infection or other complications

During the revision procedure, your surgeon will replace the existing implant with a new one. They may also adjust the placement of the implant or perform liposuction to contour the surrounding area for a more natural appearance.

It is important to note that revision butt augmentation is more complex than the initial augmentation and may require a longer recovery time. Overall, revision butt augmentation can help you achieve your buttocks' desired look and feel, improving your confidence and self-esteem.

Reasons for Revision Butt Augmentation

Here are some common reasons why people may choose to undergo revision butt augmentation:

Unsatisfactory Results

If you are unhappy with your initial butt augmentation procedure's results, you may undergo revision surgery to achieve your desired look. This could be due to various factors, such as:

  • Asymmetry
  • Inadequate volume
  • A shape that does not match your preferences

Implant or Injection Complications

While rare, complications can occur with both implants and injections used in butt augmentation. These may include:

  • Implant rupture
  • Infection
  • Migration
  • Issues with injected materials, such as uneven distribution or allergic reactions

Weight Loss or Gain

Significant weight changes can affect the appearance of your buttocks, even after butt augmentation surgery. If you have lost or gained weight since your initial procedure, you may find that your buttocks no longer look as you desire. Revision surgery can help to restore the shape and volume of your buttocks to match your current body shape.


Our bodies naturally change as we age, which can affect our buttocks' appearance. If you had butt augmentation surgery several years ago, you might find that your buttocks have lost volume or shape over time. Revision surgery can help restore a more youthful appearance to your buttocks and address any changes due to aging.

Revision Butt Augmentation Procedure

During the procedure, you will be under general anesthesia. The surgery typically takes a few hours, and you can go home the same day.

Revision butt augmentation procedures can vary depending on the patient's specific needs. Your surgeon may use one or a combination of the following techniques:

  • Fat transfer involves removing fat from another area of your body and injecting it into your buttocks to enhance their shape and size
  • If you do not have enough fat to transfer, your surgeon may use implants to add volume to your buttocks
  • In some cases, your surgeon may use a combination of fat transfer and implants to achieve the desired results

Recovery and Aftercare

Fat grafting patients recover within a relatively quick timeframe of two weeks. However, most patients should expect varying swelling and bruising for up to six weeks after surgery. A compression garment is recommended at home to control swelling and discomfort.

Most patients can resume work one to two weeks post-procedure, although direct sitting on the buttocks should be avoided in the first two weeks.

We’ll provide you with specific aftercare instructions, which may include the following:

  • Taking pain medication as prescribed
  • Avoiding sitting or lying on your back for extended periods
  • Sleeping on your stomach or side
  • Avoiding smoking and alcohol
  • Keeping the incision sites clean and dry

It is important to follow all aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and achieve optimal results.
