How to Build a Better Booty: Advice from Two SoCal Experts


Gone are the days when fashionable women hoped to make their butts look as small as possible—while many of us remember this fad, it was a historical anomaly. It’s long been thought that having some substance to your backside is a good thing! A full, round buttocks represents a strong, healthy body, looks great in jeans, and contributes to a more shapely, feminine silhouette.

While naturally curvier women rejoice, getting a shapely derriere is easier said than done for those not blessed with the greatest “assets.” This has led many women (and men too!) to try countless workouts, diets and other gimmicks in the quest for a bigger booty. Some of them work, some of them do nothing, and some are just a bad idea—and knowing which is which can be confusing.

Lucky for us, we have some of the most skilled body contouring experts on the west coast right here at Surgical Arts of the Inland Empire. Dr. Jacob Haiavy, Dr. Irene Tower, and Dr. Emma Ryan are all highly experienced in buttock enhancement and have helped patients with even the flattest of rear ends get curves they love. So we asked them, how can you get a fuller butt? Here’s what they have to say.

Dr. Tower: exercises can make your butt bigger, but…

“As an avid bodybuilder as well as a passionate cosmetic surgeon, I can appreciate and even recommend implementing a strength training routine to build up the glutes—done correctly and consistently, exercises that focus on the butt can help your rear end get tighter, look better, and maybe get bigger. However, genetics will put a cap on just how much muscle you can add to your butt, and no amount of exercise can dramatically reshape your current curves—only surgical body contouring can do that.

That said, there are other benefits to having a strong butt that make it worthwhile to hit the gym: improved sports performance, better posture, and a reduced risk for back injury. For maximum results, hire a qualified personal trainer, who can show you how to do the right exercises safely and effectively.”

Dr. Haiavy: Forget about butt enhancement pills and creams.

“There seems to be a pill for everything, even for “magically” growing a butt. As a physician, these products make me cringe. Most are mixtures of herbs, oils, and other ingredients that do little except drain the consumer’s wallet.

For those that do have any effect, that effect is usually temporary—for instance, creams that help the skin feel a bit firmer for a little while may give the impression that the butt has gotten a “boost.” Some butt enhancement pills contain appetite stimulants, which could possibly help you gain volume in your butt—but you’ll gain weight elsewhere, too.

It’s also important to remember that these products are not FDA approved and may not contain what is printed on the label in any consistent amount. This leaves the door open for products to do harm. For instance, one such pill contains Dong Quai extract, which contains known carcinogens and could be unsafe in large quantities.

For safe, effective buttock enhancement, go to an experienced cosmetic surgeon, not Amazon.”

There are several procedures that fall under the umbrella of body contouring surgery that we can use to reshape the lower body and enhance the butt:

  • Vaser 4D Hi-Def Liposuction. Sometimes a rounder, more aesthetically pleasing butt is best achieved by simply taking fat away from the surrounding areas. With VASER 4D liposuction, we can remove excess fat from the lower back, hips, and thighs with extreme precision to sculpt a beautiful “frame” for the buttocks, which will accentuate your natural curves.
  • Brazilian butt lift surgery. This popular and highly effective procedure takes VASER lipo one step further. We purify fat removed with liposuction, and then strategically inject some of it back into the buttocks in specific points to enhance their size and shape. This procedure works best on patients with good skin contraction who also have enough excess fat to harvest for the fat injections (which is most of us).
  • Lower body lift. If you have undergone significant weight loss and your butt is flat and sagging as a result, a personalized body lifting procedure can be a great option to remove the excess skin, lift sagging tissues, and restore a smoother, firmer buttock contour. In many cases, a skilled cosmetic surgeon can combine liposuction and/or fat injections with a lower body lift to achieve an optimal improvement in shape.”
