Will Developing Gluteal Muscles Thru Healthy Diet and Butt Excercise Enhance my Buttock Augmentation Via Fat Grafting Results?

I am aware that the survival of adipose tissue depends on the blood supply provided by the different gluteal muscles. So to me it makes sense that if your buttock muscles are bigger, than the grafted fat has more surface area to supply a blood source for graft survival. If this is true than all potential butt augmentation patients would benefit by starting a rigorous butt excercise regiman before their surgery. If my thoery is true than I feel it should be strongly advised upon consultation.

This has not been studied and I appreciate your thought process, but Probably not is the short answer. Exercise  and a good diet are  great things to do and the larger you buttock muscles (gluteus muscles) the more they will be defined. Fat transfer is mostly done in the fat layer (mostly un-effected by muscle size) as well as in the muscle by some.

While in theory your premise sounds reasonable, there are no studies indicating that this will make a significant difference.  

 

Good Luck.

Although I recommend a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition and exercise to all of my patients, there is no proof that this will significantly increase your outcome from autologous fat transfer to the buttocks...RAS
