In this procedure fat is transferred from other areas of the body to the buttocks by injection techniques. Liposuction around the buttock area is also performed to sculpt the surrounding area and therefore enhance the overall shape. Fat is removed by liposuction and then injected to each buttock enhancing the size the shape. The buttocks can be shaped to be more round and the projection can be increased.
