A good candidate for buttock augmentation is a person who is healthy and is troubled by the belief that her buttocks are too small or misshapen, says the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. She also has realistic expectations when it comes to the outcome of the surgery.
A person whose buttocks are asymmetrical is also a good candidate for buttock augmentation using fat transfer, claims the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Before the surgery, the surgeon uses liposuction to remove fat from another area of the patient's body, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He then injects that fat into the patient's buttocks. It may take about a year before the patient sees final results.
