Butt Augmentation

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Brazilian butt lift (fat transfer to the buttock) is the best option in my opinion because it enables your plastic surgeon to transform your entire shape. Liposuction is performed over several areas depending on the individual patient needs, but typically of the flanks, abdomen, back and thighs. You currently have a very square shape (which is more common than most people realize).

The amount of fat needed depends on the shape and needs of each individual patient, however in general at least 500cc per buttock need to be placed to see a significant difference. On average patients typically receive around 800cc per buttock side for a total of 1600cc of fat transfer. However just like a breast augmentation the amount of fat needed various from patient to patients. Also the sculpting done with the liposuction is a big part of the procedure to improve the overall shape.

Unfortunately fat cannot be taken from someone else and used for augmentation. However if a patient has a BMI of 22 they typically will have enough fat for the Brazilian butt lift. If they are smaller than this then they will need to consider doing an augmentation with implants.

The benefit of the Brazilian butt lift is that it lets your surgeon use your own body tissue to augment your buttock. This avoids the need for any foreign material or implants.

I would recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon that performs a significant amount of these procedures so they can help guide you to the surgery that will be best for you.

I hope this helps.

The answer is simple for the superior butt augmentation.  Please see the description below. 

Brazilian Butt Lift

Many women prefer a butt lift using their own fat cells. This procedure is called the Brazilian butt lift, or autologous buttock augmentation. Using fat grafting has several benefits over implants. These include:

Avoiding use of implants or foreign material.
Treatment of multiple areas to enhance overall result.
Overall lower complication rates
Patient may benefit from losing fat from the donor sites, such as the abdomen (modified liposuction)
The waist posterior is treated with liposuction so that the Brazilian butt lift procedure is maximized. The donor cells are then injected into the buttock to the desired volume. This is performed with each buttock.

Enhancing the buttocks through the Brazilian butt lift creates a firmer, attractive and more prominent profile. Adding curves or enhancing curves to your body is one way to a fuller figure that many women envy.

Schedule a consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.  Please see my youTube video for more information!

What's the Best Butt Augmentation Procedure, in General?

The contour of a female butt is primarily defined by the fatty tissues located between the skin envelope and the deep muscles attached to the pelvic bone.  Exercises of the buttocks do enhance the squarish-shaped muscles, but these deep muscles really don't contribute significantly to the volume and shape of full, round attractive buttocks.  If your goal is to have full, round attractive buttocks, then I recommend considering BBL to achieve this.  Even in thin people, there can be enough donor fat in the lower back and waist for fat grafting and enhancing the buttocks.  Best of luck!

Best way to augment and lift your buttocks is definitely with your own fat

Buttock augmentation with fat grafting can be contour better, is more natural, less complications, and you get the benefit of the liposuction.

The most natural look comes from the Brazilian butt lift, its fat taken from the abdomen area and injected into your buttocks, since its your own fat, it has a lot less chance of it being rejected like an implant. the amount of CC's will vary on how much your skin will stretch to allow the fat transfer, however I always get great results and happy patients with this procedure.

Best Butt Aug

The best butt augmentation procedure would have to be the Brazilian, fat transfer procedure. Excellent results can also be achieved with buttock implants, but the risks and recovery of this surgery are significant. The one caveat to Brazilian buttock augmentation is that you have to have enough fat on your body to transfer. Good luck!

The Brazilian butt lift is your best bet as far as being the "best", which I translate to being safe. But you you need to have a decent amount of fat to be harvested for the procedure.

Implants are fraught with complications and in general most plastic surgeons will not do this procedure as it is high risk.

Good luck.

Brazilian Butt Lift is the best and safest Butt Augmentation procedure

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

I ASSUME that by BEST you mean SAFEST.

In my opinion, as Brazilian Butt Lift (Fat Transfer to the Buttocks) is by far the best / safest way to augment the buttocks. It avoids ALL the potential complications associated with putting in implants such as - wound separation, implant infection, implant rotation , Capsular scar contracture around the implants, implant movement or flipping over and chronic recurrent fluid formation, among others.

Good Luck.

What is the best procedure for achievement of the Butt I Want?

Hi there-

The answer to your question is going to depend heavily on multiple variables and details...

What are the details of your goals?

Do you have excess fatty tissue available in other areas of your body?

What kind of a surgical and postoperative experience are you hoping to have?

If you have fatty tissue available, my usual recommendation is to pursue a Brazilian Butt Lift. This is an amazing technique that can give you a very nice increase in size, with simultaneous improvement in shape, and is permanent. The downside? It is VERY experience dependent, as technique is critical- so find a surgeon who has done a lot of these and make sure to look at pictures...

If you don't have fat available, buttock implants work well too, but are not permanent and need more periodic maintenance,

Find a surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery who has a lot of experience in these techniques and have a consultation. That 's the best way to understand what would be best for you.
