Home / The Jersey Shore Butt Lift™


A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) utilizes your own fat—transferred from areas where you may have a bit too much—and transplants it into the buttock for increased volume. This sculpts your figure into a more attractive shape and appearance, enhancing the buttocks while slimming your torso.

Dr. Coville treats the fat to be transferred very gently, removing it with low-pressure suction and then carefully preparing it for transplantation. When performing liposuction for large amounts of fat, he may use Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL). This makes for a faster procedure with less trauma to your tissues, resulting in less bruising and easier recovery. Dr. Coville is the only surgeon in the area to use this advanced technology.

He may also add Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) taken from a sample of your blood. PRP is rich in growth factors that can augment the effects of the transferred fat, increase the ability of the fat to survive in its new location, and even improve the skin where it has been placed. The technique of placing the specially-prepared fat into the area is notably gentle and meticulous, requiring patience, creative skill, and artistry to achieve the most desirable results.

Dr. Coville’s Jersey Shore Butt Lift™ takes into account the broad ethnic diversity present on the beaches of New Jersey and doesn’t limit itself to a distinctly “Brazilian” style. Because he has traveled, taught, and practiced around the world, Dr. Coville brings a unique international sensibility and artistic eye to every procedure he performs. He is exquisitely mindful of varying aesthetic ideals from person to person. If you are a suitable candidate, we can accommodate every ethnic style and taste.



If your backside leaves a lot to be desired, and you’re looking for a fuller, plumper derriere, a Jersey Shore Butt Lift™ may be your solution. However, you must have enough donor fat available in your abdomen or thighs to provide the tissue to be transferred.

The best candidates are generally healthy non-smokers with reasonable expectations about what a cosmetic procedure can do. Dr. Coville takes great care to fully listen to all your concerns and answer any questions you may have after a thorough examination during your initial consultation at our Linwood or Toms River, NJ location.

Lipofilling, lipo injection, and fat transfer are all terms used to describe moving fat from one area of the body to another. This has the multiplied benefits of slimming the donor area and augmenting another part of the body, such as the breasts in a natural fat transfer breast augmentation.

For butt augmentation, the procedure was initially popularized as the Brazilian Butt Lift. We at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery have refined and further developed the technique as the Jersey Shore Butt Lift™. This procedure involves the redistribution of the patient’s fat by liposuctioning it from other areas of the body and reinjecting it into the “glutes,” or the butt. The sites usually harvested for this fat are the abdomen and thighs of the patient. It is, therefore, necessary that enough fat is present in your body to provide the appropriate amount of fat for harvest and transfer.

Dr. Coville uses very gentle liposuction to harvest your fat. For some cases, he may use Power Assisted Liposuction for faster, safer fat removal. In this way, he will preserve each fat cell without causing too much trauma. He will need those fat cells to be healthy to ensure that as many as possible survive when placed in their new location. The harvested fat is gently purified and cleaned in a way that removes any impurities that might interfere with its ability to “take” in the new area.

Next, Dr. Coville reinjects your fat into the gluteal region, using a great deal of patience and artistry in his techniques. His method makes certain that only the best donor fat cells are used. Many injections are needed to achieve the desired result, and mastery of this skill is essential to achieve a uniform, smooth, natural appearance and skin tone of the buttocks.

The first stage, liposuction, is performed under general or local anesthetic depending on how much fat will be transferred and how comfortable you may feel during the procedure. This suctioned fat is then purified and reinjected or transferred into the buttocks. This transferred fat is rich in stem cells and has a firming and smoothing effect on the skin.

On occasion, Dr. Coville may augment these effects on the skin and the fat’s ability to “take” in its new location by adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to the fat. Dr. Coville is unique in the South Jersey Shore region to use PRP with his buttock augmentations, making the Cornerstone Plastic Surgery Jersey Shore Butt Lift ™ even more exclusive. This PRP is taken from a sample of your blood, which is treated to concentrate the very powerful platelets.

We stress that a butt lift with fat transfer is not suitable for thin women looking for a larger bottom, as there has to be a decent amount of fat to harvest for reinjection. If you do not have enough excess body fat to be transferred, the Jersey Shore Butt Lift™ or any other buttocks augmentation that depends on fat transfer will not suit you.


Implants used to be the only option to correct developmental abnormalities in the buttock region. Although still utilized, it is not necessarily a procedure that we at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery recommend or perform regularly. Implants involve a more significant surgery than a Jersey Shore Butt Lift™.

With this surgery, a soft, solid silicone implant is inserted into the buttock under the gluteus maximus muscle or between the gluteus muscle and its covering tissue. The implants are placed above the sitting area for maximum cosmetic effect, and the patient will never actually sit on them. The implantation procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia. As a larger incision is made, recovery time is significantly longer than with the Jersey Shore Butt lift™ and involves four to six weeks of restricted activities following surgery.


A major benefit of this technique is that you avoid possible tissue rejection by using your body fat. It’s much less invasive than buttock surgery involving implants. Liposuctioning of the donor areas also improves your appearance, as your overall body shape and silhouette are enhanced.

While some might perceive this as a niche or even weird cosmetic surgery, we at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery in Atlantic County see women of all ages requesting butt augmentation procedures. For younger women, the attraction of a butt lift is the dramatic curves, while for older women, an ample butt is associated with youth and even fertility.


If you are healthy and there are no complications, you should be able to resume normal activities about two days after the procedure. Higher levels of physical activity should be possible around two weeks afterward. Full recovery can take one to two months, depending on the individual. If the Jersey Shore Butt Lift ™ is combined with a tummy tuck, recovery can be a bit longer.

You will need to avoid sitting or putting pressure on your newly enhanced backside for at least a couple of weeks after surgery. Your transplanted fat is trying to survive in its new location, much like planting a seed in the ground. Therefore you must try not to place any pressure on the area. Transplanted fat cells are very sensitive to pressure until they have fully “taken.” Sleeping on your side and sitting forward as if on a motorcycle during recovery are ways you can help to maximize your results.

After butt augmentation, the upper quadrant of your buttocks is fuller and higher, so the butt appears lifted and more prominent. The best results from the Jersey Shore Butt Lift™ become visible four to six weeks after surgery with proper care and healing, but full results can take up to a year to appear. It takes time for the transplanted fat to settle, and some of it will be reabsorbed by your body.

The results of a Jersey Shore Butt Lift™ are long-lasting, as the transferred fat that survives will be permanent. This fat can still shrink or expand if your weight fluctuates, so maintaining a healthy weight is essential to enjoying optimal enhancement with your butt lift.
