I believe the first option in butt augmentation should be liposuction and fat grafting. However, there are the unlucky (or perhaps lucky!) few that simply do not have enough fat to sufficiently augment their buttocks. In these individuals, the buttocks is best augmented with an implant. The implants for the butt are sized in a similar way to the breasts to ensure we get a volume that you would like.
In some individuals, there is fat present but not enough to do a complete butt augmentation with fat; in these individuals, I like to get the majority of the shape and size with the implant and then perform liposuction with fat grafting at the same time. I believe this helps to “soften” the implant and it also gets rid of any pesky fat pockets!
Let’s look at each on these topics.
The average cost for a butt augmentation with an implant ranges from $6,900 to $9,000 depending on the type of implant, if liposuction is performed, and/or if we adding fat grafting to further contour the buttocks.
As you go bigger in the size of the implant, your implant becomes more noticeable, less “real”, and you can “feel” it. At some point, based on your size, the implant will be too big even for fat grafting to conceal it.
My first option for butt augmentation is: liposuction and fat grafting. If you don’t have enough fat, then my second option is: utilize a moderate sized implant, perform liposuction to further sculpt your torso, and utilize fat grafting to “soften” the implant, and contour your butt.
However, even in extremely low body fat percentage individuals I can find fat somewhere. All of fat from somewhere that we would like to get rid off! And because of this, I favor using an implant with fat grafting. Why a combination? Because what separates an good butt augmentation from a GREAT butt augmentation is contouring the shape of the butt and torso. The liposuction and fat grafting can help to shape the hour glass and contour the buttocks. Therefore, I like to place the implant; then utilize liposuction to sculpt an hour glass and then place the fat around the implant to soften the edges and feel. Thus, creating not only a larger volume
