Welcome to the World Association of Gluteal Surgeons

The World Association of Gluteal Surgeons (WAGS) was founded by a group of top-rated plastic and cosmetic surgeons who are committed to performing gluteal procedures in the safest manner possible. In recent years, the Brazilian Butt Lift has been condemned as a dangerous cosmetic procedure.

WE DISAGREE.

Gluteal surgery is often life-changing, as it dramatically alters the shape of the patient’s abdomen and buttocks. As long as surgeons adhere to the SAFER guidelines of fat injection and body fat transfer, the operation can be performed safely and successfully.

Our mission is to help educate doctors around the world about the safest ways to perform a Brazilian Butt Lift. By joining WAGS, you can be one of the elite members in the medical industry to have access to our library of educational materials. Members are also able to access our WAGS Hotline, where medical professionals can get their questions answered by our dedicated experts.
