There are two basic ways to augment the size of the buttock area: silicone implants vs. fat transfer. A silicone implant can give volume to a patient who is fairly thin and does not have sufficient fat to undergo a fat transfer. The implant is placed under the gluteal muscle and can give reasonable projection to the buttock. This method however does not allow for any significant sculpting of the buttock area. The implants themselves can also become infected, they can move over time and can occasionally develop hard scar tissue around them. A Los Angeles fat transfer to the buttock, also know as Brazilian buttock lift, involves removing fat from one area and transferring it to the buttock area. This allows for resculpting of the entire lower back, buttock, hip and waist area. It uses liposuction to remove the fat, which is then processed and re-injected into the desired areas (buttock). The Brazilian buttock lift allows for a very natural recreation of the body’s own tissue with the same softness and suppleness of fat.
