Buttock augmentation is a cosmetic procedure where the shape of the buttock is enhanced. The procedure not only gives the buttock more volume it improves the overall shape of the area. This procedure reshapes the body’s silhouette as fat is liposuctioned from the flanks, abdomen and various other areas dependent on the patients particular needs and desires. This fat is then processed and used to sculpt the buttock. Through the technique of fat grafting, live fat cells can be transferred from unwanted areas to deficient areas of the buttock.
