Fat is harvested from areas such as abdomen, flanks, back and thighs. It is then placed in the gluteal area to make create a masculine and athletic buttocks. Ideal buttock shape varies in different cultures, ethnicities and preference.

How Much Fat Is Needed?

How much fat is enough? It depends on your height, weight, gluteal muscle size, overall shape and how much augmentation you desire. On average to have a meaningful improvement it takes about 300 cc in each buttocks.

What if there is not enough fat? You can still get significant improvement and reshaping of buttocks area by liposuction of flanks and back to give it more definition and rounder shape. A buttocks implant is another option for patients with inadequate fat reservoir.

Recovery & Results

After the surgery you will wear a specific garment to control swelling in the liposuctioned areas and keep pressure off the augmented area for 6 weeks. For the fat to stay alive and “take” it is crucial to avoid pressure. Patients are prohibited from laying on their back or sitting on their buttocks strictly for 1 week. After that, patients may sit for very short period of time and are encouraged to squat and sit on their thighs to minimize the pressure.
