Buttock augmentation is an excellent alternative to the fat transfer augmentation in two patient populations. The first patient population that benefits from this include patients that do not have adequate fat reserves.
Without any fat to harvest, it is intuitive that a fat transfer would not be possible! The second patient population that benefits include patients that desire maximum central buttocks projection.
When performing the fat transfer, the central buttocks can only be projected minimum to moderate amounts; this is because fat cells don’t have structural rigidity to push the buttocks out maximally.
Instead, an implant is made out of solid silicone that has the rigidity to push out the central buttocks more effectively. This augmentation can be a safe and efficacious when accurate surgical design protocols are employed.
