Buttocks Enhancement Through Fat Transfer
The shape and contour of your buttocks is mostly determined by genetics and how and where your body stores fat. Some women have more of an “apple” shape and their fat is stored mainly in the abdominal region. Others have a “pear” shape and store their fat in the buttocks, hips, and thighs.
Diet and exercise can certainly help to maintain a healthy weight and to keep the body toned, but a lot of women still have flatter buttocks without much shape and exercise is not going to change that.
A Buttocks enhancement through fat transfer is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can reshape the buttocks and provide you with more curve and shape. It also helps to provide more balance between the upper and lower body.
In this procedure, liposuction is used to take fat from other parts of the body such as the belly, hips, or thighs and transferred to the buttocks area to add more volume and shape. Not only will this provide shape to the buttocks, it can also reduce fat pockets on the area(s) where the fat is taken from.
Once fat is extracted from another part of the body, it is purified and prepared for transfer, and then injected into specified points on the buttocks which will improve shape and increase volume.
While this procedure does add more volume and shape, ideally you need to have good skin tone and elasticity for the skin to mold to the fat. If you have a lot of sagging skin on your buttocks, a posterior (butt) lift can also be done simultaneously to provide optimal results.

Are you a Candidate for Buttocks Enhancement?
Not everyone is a candidate for cosmetic surgery. If you are in the process of losing weight, it is best to wait until you have reached your goal weight before undergoing any kind of cosmetic procedure. Additionally, if you are still planning on having children, it is best to wait until you have had your child and recovered from the pregnancy. The reason for this is because weight fluctuations can affect the long-lasting benefits that are gained from having cosmetic surgery. Additionally, if you are currently a smoker, you will need to stop completely prior to undergoing any type of procedures since smoking can affect both the healing process and the results gained from a procedure. Also, it is important that you have a positive attitude and a realistic outlook about what surgery can do for you. An unhealthy lifestyle and poor overall health and fitness can wreak havoc on your appearance.
