It is very interesting that almost no surgeon talk about how the tightness of your buttock ultimately will determine the projection that you are going to have. Sure you have gone online, read about buttock augmentation, stories about how much fat was injected in the buttock, how big the buttock got, but ultimately the first and foremost important concept that you need to understand is that buttock augmentation depends on your skin tone. So let us talk about the skin tone. Different women or men have different skin tones. The skin tone is crucial when it comes to buttock augmentation. For example, those buttocks that have a very tight skin tone and the buttock that are a little bit loose, but why is it important, because when we are augmenting the buttock with fat transfer ultimately the resistance of the skin will determine the projection that you are going to have. In other words if your buttock skin is very tight it does not matter how much fat you put in, you can put 800, 900, 1000 the skin is not going to stretch indefinitely. On the other hand if you skin tone is looser then when you start injecting fat you can achieve a huge projection and probably inject much less than a 1000 cc. When we think about the skin tone also we need to take into consideration the attachment between the skin and the muscle below. There is a layer of fat and tissue between the muscle and the skin and sometimes this layer is extremely tight. This is very common and varied by the ethnicity of the patient. For example, if your are very athletic most likely you have very tight skin tone due to the nature of exercising constantly firming your tissue which results in a tight buttock and you can see these in body builders and women that exercise a lot. So how do you know if your skin tone is tight; it is easy to essentially grab your buttock and pinch your buttock. With this maneuver I can determine one how thick is the fascia of the buttock in other words the fat that is above the muscle and how how tight is this area. In addition, a telltale signs of a looser buttock are having stretch marks, previous pregancies, having increase in weight, weight loss, etc. Now you need to understand that if your buttock is extremely saggy that does not mean that your body is going to be extremely big after the surgery. If you have lost massive weight and your buttock is very saggy injecting the fat as a matter of fact is just going to make it look worse. In other words you are going to have a big saggy buttock. This is important that you visit a plastic surgeon that understands buttock surgery and how he relates to the skin tone and the projection that you are going to get. There is no software, photo shop, or anything that is going to be able to determine how big your buttock is going to be before surgery. Any surgeon that provide you a picture of yourself and show you on an image how you are going to look after surgery is lying. This is absolutely not possible due to the fact that how the projection works depend on factors like your skin tone, tightness of soft tissue muscle, etc. Before you go to your plastic surgeon you have to be very realistic of what you can accomplish. Sometimes patient provide me pictures of buttock that are 20 time the size of what they have and this is absolutely impossible to achieve with plastic surgery. Make sure that you understand the limitations of the procedure. If your skin tone is very tight you are not going to get a large projection. It does not matter if you use a buttock implant versus fat. Ultimately the resistance of the skin will determine how big your buttock is going to get.
