Filler substances are commonly used nowadays to correct imperfections on the face such as wrinkles, among other things. Also, a special filler substance is commonly used on the body to sculpt the silhouette into a more appealing shape. For the body, the filler that we are talking about is not a foreign substance but the patient’s own fat cells that are extracted from different areas of the body with the help of liposuction. The procedure of using fat as a filler to increase the volume of certain features of the body and remodel the shape is called lipofilling, and it is very popular nowadays. Many patients desiring to increase the size of the buttocks ask what are the butt fillers options for patients who are thin. It is a well-known fact that the first and main condition to be able to undergo lipofilling is to have adipose tissue in other areas of the body. This means that in a vast majority of cases, patients who are thin are not eligible candidates for fat transfer. So are there other butt fillers that can be used for thin patients? The desire to use fillers comes as a result of the patient’s belief that a filler is safer and entails fewer risks than a butt implant. But this is not the case. Some of the butt fillers that people ask about when it comes to augmenting the buttocks with injections are Macrolane and hydrogel. Before even considering these injections, you should know that none of them are FDA-approved to be used on the buttocks. This means that when using them, you do it at your own risk. There are different consequences associated with these injections, but the reality is that at this point we don’t know the full array of risks associated with them, hence the advice to stay away from them. A question that I often get from thin patients is if using different fillers for the buttocks are safe. The truth is that if they are not legal to use, chances are they are not safe either or they don’t provide results that weigh in more than the risks involved in the procedure. The safe way to fill your buttocks to create more volume is by fat transfer. If your thin body frame and lack of adipose tissue in other areas of the body deem you as ineligible for fat grafting, then you should consider implants to get bigger buttocks. Butt augmentation using implants is among the most commonly requested plastic surgery procedures nowadays. Butt implants are safe and durable and different from breast implants. Butt implants don’t need to be replaced and removed during the patient’s lifetime unless certain complications occur. The procedure has a more difficult recovery period, but the results of butt implant surgery are permanent.
