Buttocks fullness varies depending upon age and hereditary factors. The majority
of patients we see requesting buttocks fullness are females but lately, a number
of males have had the procedure as well. Twenty five years ago, most of my
buttocks consultations revolved around liposuction and decreasing the fullness
of a buttocks, but my, how the J. Lo Kardashians have changed all of that! Today
the rage is a fuller buttocks and fortunately we have a few options to help
patients achieve the look they wish to have. The simplest, but least practical,
is the injection of filler materials like Sculptra Aesthetic®. I know some
patients desire this option because no surgery is involved but in my minds it
does not make any financial sense for most of us to do so. In most cases a LOT
of filler is required (at least ten vials per side) to see a significant
improvement and the results only last a year or so. The other two commonly
performed procedures require surgery. I have more requests for a “Brazilian Butt
Lift” than for buttocks implants but not all patients are candidates for a BBL.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is basically a microfat grafting procedure, removing
excess fat from some other part of the body, filtering and processing it and
reinjecting it into the buttocks. In order to perform a satisfactory BBL, you
have to have adequate donor sites from which I can harvest the fat! The
pictured below did NOT have any excess fat to donate and was a much better
candidate for a buttocks augmentation with soft silicone implants. We offer all
of these options at Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach.

If you have any specific questions about cosmetic procedures, your best bet would be to see a qualified plastic surgeon to review your options.
