Q: I want a bigger butt and am interested in silicone injection buttock augmentation. How much does it cost?
A: As you may not be aware, the use of silicone injections is poor medical practice (if not illegal) in the United States..not to mention that it is a terrible procedure associated with a lot of complications. It seems to be performed only by the most nefarious of practitioners some of whom are not even physicians. I would advise you to stay well clear of this approach to buttock augmentation. Fat injections to the buttock, however, are a different matter and are an accepted method of natural buttock enhancement. This is the injectable procedure you should be considering. It has the advantage of not only being safe but gives one the secondary benefit of liposuction done elsewhere, usually on the stomach, waistline and back. Its one drawback is that how well the fat survives and takes is not always assured and only so much fat volume can be done at a single time. But that is a much better ‘problem’ and easier to recover from than infection, granulomas and skin pigmentation changes that are not infrequent problems with silicone injections into the buttocks. Not to mention that the silicone can never be removed no matter what problems it may be causing,
