Thank you for your question! Doing exercises will help shape the buttocks.  Dieting and overall weight loss will make you loose fat in your but, gaining weight will make the buttocks larger.  Its a matter or overall body weight loss or weight gain.

Fat for roundness and fullness, not muscles

If you exercise and diet, the fat in your buttocks will reduce and adversely affect your butt shape. You can try building your muscles in the area to improve your shape, but that only does so much. If you want roundness and fullness, you'll need fat.

Gluteal Exercises and BBL

You pose a great question.  Exercises such as squats and lunges will definitely help to firm, tone and tighten the gluteal muscles.  While this may translate into an increase in the size of the buttocks, it might not provide you with the shape, fullness and size that you desire.  A Brazilian butt lift is a very popular procedure that allows your board-certified operating surgeon to remove fat from other areas of the body (abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs for example) and purify this fat for injection into the buttocks.  The biggest limitation of a Brazilian butt lift is how much fat that the surgeon has to work with.  After a Brazilian butt lift, I advise my patients to perform gluteal enhancing exercises once it is safe enough to do so.  I would recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in Brazilian butt lift procedures.  Your surgeon would be able to perform a physical exam to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this procedure, whether you have a sufficient amount of fat to perform the necessary and desired augmentation, and discuss their pre and post-operative protocols.  I hope this helps and good luck! 

BBL vs exercise

As a bodybuilding competitor myself, and my wife a soon to be PRO figure competitor, I'd have to say I always recommend the exercise route to increase buttock size and shape.  "Glutes" are the rage right now among the women bodybuilding scene.  Its everyone focus.  It takes time, and lot of hard work.  But results are very attainable.  
BBL is a permanent change in distribution of where you gain and lose fat.  Doing lot of butt exercises will enhance the result in combination with BBL, IF body fat is NOT reduced.  When you start losing body fat, you will lose the BBL fat.  But if you gain back your weight, it will come back. 
hope that helps!

Will Butt Exercises Increase my Butt Size?

Hello, and thank you for reaching out to us.

A healthy lifestyle is always encouraged and welcomed. This does not however ensure that you will retain more or less fat cells.

In my patients, they can expect between 60-80% of the fat to survive. The survival rate depends both on the genetics of your body and the skill of the surgeon. Post surgery, you should follow the plan laid out to you by your surgeon, and avoid putting pressure on your backside (sitting) when possible.

My recommendation is that you find an ASPS board certified surgeon in your area who specializes in the BBL, and set up an in person consult. An in person consult with an an ASPS board certified surgeon is the only way to determine the best route for your body and your goals.

It is all about designing the perfect plan for You.

Good luck, please let us know how it goes.

Exercising will help tone muscles.

Exercising can help tone the muscles in the buttocks, which will give it a firmer and more lifted shape, squats and lunges done correctly will increase the size of the glutes, and by extension increase the size of the of the buttocks. This may not give the shape, size, or speed of the result desired, but exercises do help. I advise all my patients to perform these exercises, after the procedure. 
In regard to being a good candidate for a butt lift, this procedure is only limited by the amount of excess fat that can be removed from the body and injected into the buttocks. Your doctor will be able to assess whether your body has a sufficient amount of excess fat that would be necessary for this procedure.

Will Butt Exercises Increase my Butt Size?

Healthy living is an essential part of a beautiful body. Buttock exercises after a Brazilian butt lift surgery may increase the size of the butt as the muscles become larger and stronger. What will change the size of the buttock overall is fluctuations in weight. If you lose weight, the fat cells in the buttock will shrink and the size of the buttock will decrease.

When considering body contouring surgery, it's best to be at your goal weight prior to undergoing the procedure. This will help give you the best chance of having long-lasting results.

Hi and great question.
I appreciate the time you are spending researching this procedure.

The results from a BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) both the liposuction and the fat transferred are permanent. The fat transferred is your fat and once it is successfully grafted, it now lives in your butt! All fat will gain and lose as your fat normally does.

If you perform butt exercises it can increase the size of your butt muscles which can increase the size of your butt!

Best of Luck!

Thanks for your Realself Question, "Will Buttock Exercises Increase My Butt Size?"  Thats a great question.  Doing exercises that increase the volume and strength of the buttock muscle is definitely helpful in shaping the buttock.  The question is really the size and shape you are looking for and whether exercise alone will help you achieve the result you want.  To get an idea of whether exercise will help you achieve the augmentation you are looking for, I suggest getting a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and that way you could get an idea of what exercises you should be doing and what you could expect to achieve with exercise alone and also with a fat transfer buttock augmentation.  Thanks again for your question.
