Shapely, perky buttocks are a key characteristic of an attractive, youthful figure. Unfortunately, as a result of aging, gravity, pregnancy, genetics, and/or large weight loss, the buttocks often develop a sagging, flattened appearance that lacks roundness and definition. A Brazilian butt lift surgery gives the buttocks a firmer, lifted appearance through techniques to remove excess skin and tighten sagging skin and tissues. Brazilian butt enhancement surgery by triple board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, uses Dr. Henry Mentz’s innovative butt grafting machine. Dr. Mentz’s advanced fat grafting technique utilizes a special pump to speed and increase the volume of fat that can be added to buttocks in a single procedure so that a rounder contour can be achieved.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017

Dr. Mentz performs all body contouring procedures at his private AAAASF-certified SurgiCentre facility in Houston, Texas, where you will be carefully monitored and cared for by a board-certified anesthesiologist and Dr. Mentz’s highly trained surgical staff. A buttocks lift is most often combined with butt augmentation using fat grafting (Brazilian butt lift) to improve the contour of the buttocks. In some cases, butt augmentation, alone, can be all that is needed to give the buttocks a more lifted appearance, through fat grafts to add volume to the upper portion of the buttocks.
Following your surgery, Dr. Mentz may recommend an overnight stay or outpatient surgery for patients who live within 20 miles of our office so a registered nurse can visit and monitor your recovery. You will experience bruising and swelling after a buttocks enhancement procedure. Ice packs are helpful to reduce swelling and discomfort. Much of the bruising and swelling will diminish within 2-3 weeks. Because fat grafts come from a patient’s own body, there is little to no chance of an allergic reaction. During the recovery process, it is important to take short walks. More strenuous activities and aerobic exercise may be resumed in 3-6 weeks or when Dr. Mentz advises. Most patients are able to return to work in approximately 1-2 weeks following surgery.

Butt Fat Graft FAQs
Buttocks enhancement surgery is frequently combined with other procedures to improve the body’s contour lines and proportions. This can include breast enhancement surgery to add lift and volume to the breasts or body contouring procedures such as liposuction, a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and lower body lift.
Why Dr. Mentz?
As the nation’s first triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Mentz is respected nationwide for his introduction of innovative liposuction and body contouring techniques. Dr. Mentz introduced a groundbreaking new method to improve buttocks augmentation surgery to the respected International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery at its 2010 meeting. The technique utilizes a special pump to speed the process and volume of fat that can be grafted into the buttocks, resulting in a fuller, shapelier contour than can be achieved through the more limited and cumbersome syringe method of fat grafting.
