Fat injection is best, larger volumes produce more dramatic results

Fat injection is the best treatment for fillling out the buttocks.  Implants have too many complications.  It is a good thing if you have an area where substantial fat can be harvested, usually the love handle areas because a reduction in these areas compliments the hourglass figure and helps make the buttocks look rounder.  Your surgeon should have plenty of experience with fat injection in general and with buttock fat injection.  He or she should be using a system that separates the fat as it is suctioned, rather than centrifuging (which is an older technique).

I do ibuttock fat injection frequently.  In fact, I just saw a patient in follow-up whom I treated last week.  Today, many women are having it done at the time of liposuction because they know that (1) fat is a valuable resource and if you discard it, it is no longer available, and (2) the buttocks tend to get flatter as you get older, so it makes sense nice to be proactive.

I typically inject 100-350 cc per side, sometimes more.  I ask the patient how aggressive she wants to be.  I have not yet had a patient say I injected too much fat, so our volumes have increased over the years.  Results have been excellent and there have been very few complications.
