Gluteal Enhancement


Gluteal Enhancement


Add volume and change the shape and size of your backside, naturally.


Because Dr. Capizzi believes in patient’s having a “natural” looking result in any procedure they receive at Capizzi, M.D., gluteal enhancement, a.k.a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), is always achieved through fat grafting. Fat grafting is a process that utilizes liposuction and allows Dr. Capizzi to remove fat from an unwanted area, and easily place it in small or larger amounts to enhance the buttock, either as enhancing the shape or increasing the size depending on the patient’s desired results.

A question often asked is about the use of gluteal Implants. Dr. Capizzi acknowledges that these are effective devices for enlarging the buttock as a whole. However, he notes the significant down side of this option: the high risk of infection, limited sitting for 4-6 weeks, as well as the firmness of the implants. This option has limited longevity as these hard implants are temporary and, during placement, might cause bleeding due to lack of a natural muscular plane, late fluid collections, malrotation, and infection.

“Fat grafting for gluteal enhancement is my preferred method because it can be specifically directed to the areas devoid of fullness. Fat can be harvested safely and readily from areas of an overabundance and placed through the very same incision in another area.”

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that works with your body to create a fuller and more youthful appearance. As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra goes within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Sculptra helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase volume. Typically used for shallow-to-deep facial folds, it can also be injected by our expert staff throughout the buttocks region (usually the mid-to-upper area) to help fill in the dimples and appearance of cellulite.


Recovery time for fat grafting is approximately 7-10 days for regular activities and 3-6 weeks for strenuous activities.
