Brazilian Butt Lift May Be Suitable

I agree that fat grafting may be a better choice for you. A photo would be helpful to better advise you.
Buttock implants work well in a minority of patients because the implants, though soft, press on critical parts during sitting, bike or horseback riding, etc.
Implants should only be used in patients who:
1) have a full and complete understanding of the risks;
2) have favorable anatomy;
3) are not candidates for less risky procedures such as fat grafting.

Fat Grafting may be better for you than implants.
It is important to have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to make this determination. Although some patients are candidates for implants, I feel that when a person is a candidate for fat augmentation (Brazillian Butt Lift), they tend to get a better, permanent result. Remember that fat is permanent and implants may not last a lifetime. Also, you get the benefit of body shaping through a fat grafting procedure.
