The most widely accepted method to enhance the shape, size, and firmness of the buttocks is fat grafting. By using a woman’s own fat, the buttocks can be reshaped in a completely natural fashion. The resulting fat is placed in very small threads so that the fat survives and leads to natural and soft tissue in the buttocks.
Buttock augmentation with silicone implants has been performed for years. The technique has progressed and the implant materials have improved; however, the procedure is limited. Buttock augmentation with implants limits the size increase that can be achieved and leads to a significant scar in the buttock region. The extensive surgery needed for placement of the implants can also lead to wound healing problems, infection and other complications. The downfalls of buttock implants are the reason fat grafting has become the preferred method of buttock augmentation. The greatest limitation of buttock fat grafting is the amount of fat on a patient’s body available for liposuction and transfer to the buttocks.
