I am a Skinny Patient Wanting a Bigger Butt, What are my Options?
This is a very common question as butt augmentation has become so popular over the past few years. The three most common methods of butt augmentation are the Brazilian Butt Lift (fat transfer), butt implants and a combination of fat transfer and butt implants. Which treatment is best for you really depends on your aesthetic goals, body frame and available fat. The good news is that skinny patients have options too that can give them a phenomenal result.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is typically a great option for patients that have sufficient fat for their augmentation. Patients are usually surprised that they have enough fat for their augmentation. Patients with a BMI greater than 22 in general will have enough fat for their Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. The benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure are that it not only enhance the buttock, it improves the overall figure of the patient. It can transform a patient from a square to more of an hourglass figure. The combination of shaping the waist and enhancing the buttock is what has made the procedure so popular.
Butt augmentation with implants is a great option for patients that do not have enough fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift. The implants give patients a great shape that can lift and augment the buttock in thin patients. The implants not only enhance the size, but they improve the overall shape of the buttock. The butt implants (just like breast implants) come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can also be placed in a variety of locations depending on the needs of the individual patient.
The third option is a combination of fat transfer and butt implants. This option allows your waist to be shaped with the liposuction (fat harvest), the augmentation and projection of your buttock with the implant and then the fat is used to soften the buttock and enhance any further areas that the implant did not augment such as the hips. This combination can be a very powerful tool for augmentation as it combines the positive effects of both butt augmentation procedures.
These three methods of butt augmentation can help the vast majority of patients achieve their butt augmentation goals. This give people a variety of choices to help them get the look they desire.
