How big is too big?

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

If you want a bigger butt than you currently have, then you want a bigger butt. This is a personal decision and one of taste.  If the surgeon that you have consulted with has a different view on things than you, I recommend continuing to look around until you find one that shares your vision of beauty.

Buttock size and shape goal

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


Thank you for the question and the photo.  Buttock shape and buttock volume are two different things.  If you would like your buttock to be fuller/bigger than you will need to add volume and this will require buttock fat grafting.  If you would like your buttock to stand out more with relation to your lower back and thighs than liposuction of the lower back and thighs as well as the abdomen as needed can be performed.  A thorough discussion and examination would be needed to arrive at the best plan.  It certainly does seem that the amount of projection of your buttock is sufficient, however, this can be masked by your current body postition as well as wearing high heels so it may certainly be that additional volume would be beneficial.

All the best,

Bigger butt

If you want a bigger butt, then you should get a Brazilian Butt lift.  Everyone has different ideas of what is desirable, you should go for what you want, not what someone else wants.

BBL - How big do you want?

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

The real issue here is how big do you want to go. You need to be clear with your doctor about the look you are going for. While you certainly have a full buttock, perhaps you want even bigger. In that case liposuction with fat transfer (BBL) would work well for you.

Second opinion.

All tough contouring your waist will make the illusion of a bigger buttocks and hip area, you could still have fat transfer to achieve more projection in your curves. Its all going to depend on how much your skin will stretch to allow the fat injections. Try looking for a second opinion with another Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that specializes in sculpting curvier bodies for you to get the results your looking for.

Should I Get A Brazilian Butt Lift?

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

The correct size of your buttocks is really up to you.  The plastic surgeon you consulted suggested that, if you reduced the amount of fat from your muffin tops, thighs, etc., it would automatically make your buttocks look bigger.  On the other hand, if you want the absolute size of your buttocks to be larger, then it would not be inappropriate to place the fat that has been removed, or some portion of it, into your butt. 

I recommend you have a face to face consultation with a Board Certified plastic surgeon so he or she can not only evaluate what your buttocks look like, but also have a chance to evaluate your personality, your overall height and weight, and to truly understand what your ultimate goals are.  This in-person consultation will help you crystallize your goals and help you determine whether a BBL or lipo with a BBL is the appropriate answer for you. 

A Matter of Preference

Dear Jamaican Booty,

I hope that the photos you sent to your doctor are more revealing than the one posted here.  We cannot fully evaluate you current buttock size from this photo.  However, buttock size is a matter of personal preference.  Liposuction around your waistline will indeed accentuate your current buttock contours and add the illusion of a larger buttocks.  An in person consultation with an American Board of Plastic Surgery certified Plastic Surgeon will help you make your decision.  Good luck!

Brazilian buttlift or lipo around the buttocks

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

    If you want larger buttocks, you should get fat grafting and the brazilian buttlift.  If you are happy with the size of your buttocks, just lipo everything around the buttocks.   This is really a personal decision.

It is difficult to tell from the pictures posted. However if you wish to have a bigger butt abd liposuction around the butt, lower back and stomach I see no reason not to transfer that fat to your butt.
