If you have a flat or poorly developed butt, you may feel self-conscious whenever you wear tight jeans or pants. You may have tried everything to get the buttocks you desire, but no matter what exercises you try, your buttocks never seem to grow and may look disproportionately small in relation to your toned upper body.
Although buttocks are very hard to shape with exercise, surgical buttock enlargement has a very high success rate. Because the procedures is performed using your own tissue, the risk of rejection or infection is very low, and the results are essentially permanent.

Before the advent of fat grafting the technique employed the use of solid silicone implants, which is still used by some today. However, the technique is more difficult, more painful postoperatively, fraught with more complications needs longer post-op recuperation and the results are never quite natural because of the presence of a foreign body. The use of fat grafting has revolutionized buttock augmentation. It is simpler to perform, with a usual operative time of 1-1/2 hours. It has minimal pain and discomfort postoperatively and requires minimal recuperation.
An additional benefit is that in removing fat from the donor site(s) to be used for the grafting, such as the abdomen, the patient also benefits from modified liposuction to the donor site.
Buttock augmentation with fat transfer requires sufficient quantities of fat in donor regions. Patients without sufficient donor fat may seek augmentation with buttock implants.
After fat is harvested from donor sites, it is processed and then placed in the buttocks. It is carefully layered throughout the buttocks in small quantities to improve the likelihood that the fat will survive. However, in about 30 to 35% of patients a significant portion of the fat is absorbed, leading to poor results, often not enough correction or else there is dimpling or unevenness. In these cases, a second treatment is necessary to get the desired result.
