Fat grafting to the buttocks not only gives shape to the buttocks but also contouring of other areas of the body. Fat is harvested (liposuctioned) from multiple areas of the body. The fat is then separated from any liquefied components and then injected into the buttocks to give a fuller look to the buttocks.

There is no rejection of the fat because it is not a foreign substance. It is a natural substance of the body. Not all of the fat that is injected will survive. Occasionally, a second procedure may be needed if the desired look is not obtained from the initial treatment. The lack of enough fat to liposuction can also limit the size of the buttock enhancement. Multiple areas of the body are liposuctioned in order to obtain enough fat to give the desired look.

Liposculpturing the body and injecting the fat into the buttocks is a very natural way to enhance the buttocks.

Remember, this is an investment in you and you deserve the best.
