One of the most requested new procedures centers on buttock augmentation or contouring. This can be done very much like a breast augmentation where an implant can be placed or as I perform it, I augment the patients buttock area with their own fat.
It must be remembered – the patient must have sufficient fat stores to augment the buttock area. Also the size of the existing buttock will help determine the amount of fat we can inject. Another way we can contour the “buttock” area is to perform judicious liposuction to areas that are associated with buttock such as the hips or saddle bags – also the love handle area.
This is a great procedure and the patient gets areas suctioned with too much fat and then transplants it to their buttocks. Simply put it is a win win.
