Which safe and effective butt augmentation method would you recommend for more shapely and slightly bigger buttocks?

A: Fat transfer ( Brazilian buttock lift) for a more shapely and larger buttock

The best way to obtain a shapely and slightly larger buttock is by way of fat transfer, also known as Brazilian buttock lift. This technique involves removing fat from unwanted areas such as the abdomen, sides, and back (using liposuction) and then injecting the fat into the gluteal area and sometimes hips.  This not only increases the size of the buttocks, but more importantly, improves the overall shape of the lower back, hips and lumbar area.  Not all of the fat survives during a fat transfer like this, about 40-50% can shrink over time.

The other option to increase the size of the buttock is by way of a firm, silicone implant.  This is really only useful in thin patients who do not have sufficient fat to perform a fat transfer.  The implants have more complications, such as infection, hard scar tissue, movement/migration, to name a few.  The implants can not improve your overall shape the way a fat transfer can.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon regarding buttock augmentation.
