Can I Use Fat Injections for Butt Augmentation?

fat grafting butt liftIt’s clear to many that beauty standards can change from decade to decade. The current zeitgeist recognizes that women with fuller, more curvaceous shapes have just as much appeal as other body types. As a result, a number of women are eager to enhance the contour and size of their backsides. If you’re considering buttock augmentation and would prefer a more natural, foreign object-free approach, our board certified cosmetic, reconstructive, and plastic surgeon, Neal Goldberg, MD, offers fat injections for butt enlargement that can achieve excellent, long-lasting results.

Facial fat injections can be used to enhance the volume of the face where the natural process of aging may have gradually reduced fullness. Fat transfer for the derriere can work very similarly. Dr. Goldberg can harvest your fatty tissue from the abdomen or flanks, the most common areas to utilize, and use this fat to not only increase the size but also improve the entire framework of your “booty.” The tissue is collected via liposuction, and he will use this method to contour the area around the buttocks to further enhance the end result. His unique technique makes implants unnecessary, which can help to reduce the risk of complication. A single treatment may provide sufficient volume enhancement; however, if you determine you would like more comprehensive results, Dr. Goldberg can perform additional injections.

It’s important to note that your unique anatomic factors will determine how much of the fat transfer will take. Dr. Goldberg is careful to approximate how much “settling” will occur when he administers the fat transfer. In some cases, your body may absorb a greater amount of fat than anticipated. As a result, you may need additional injections once you have recovered.
