Ideal Candidates for Butt Augmentation

Buttock augmentation is also known as gluteal augmentation surgery. It is also frequently referred to as a BBL, or Brazilian butt lift, when it is performed along with fat transfer. The procedure uses fat grafting or implants, or even a combination of both, to increase the size of the buttocks. Large, round buttocks have gained in popularity over the years thanks to music video stars and celebrities showing off their ample backsides on the red carpet. Many people want to have a bigger booty but who is an ideal candidate for butt augmentation?
