How difficult it is to get Kim Kardashian's Butt?

Is it all just implants? She couldn't have enough fat for a fat transfer. Does it require multiple surgeries?

Countless experts have weighed in on what cosmetic procedures Kim Kardashian has received. From rumored Botox treatments and silicone implants, to “boob jobs” and “nose jobs”, the game of guessing which procedures Kim Kardashian has or hasn't had never ends.

While I can't tell you specifically which cosmetic procedures or plastic surgery she's had, I can tell you which procedure could achieve a similar look:

A fat transfer procedure which removes fat from one location and transfers it to a new location via fat injections could achieve a similar effect. Fat transfers are commonly used on the face, buttocks and breasts to increase plumpness and volume. The results are typically long-lasting and very natural looking.

Likewise, liposuction at the donor site can remove plumpness and achieve a healthy, svelte look that is difficult to achieve through weight loss alone. Kim's proportionally smaller waist suggests to me that this is likely the case.

How difficult it would be to achieve similar results would depend on the amount of existing fat there is to work with, and on a patient’s individual anatomy.

Every time Kim Kardashian steps on the red carpet, half of Hollywood tries to guess whether she's had "butt injections", "butt implants", breast augmentation, or a Brazilian butt lift. To my knowledge there is no public information on her cosmetic surgery, and only her plastic surgeon knows the answers.

My guess is that she’s had buttock augmentation via fat transfer. Fat transfer procedures transfer fat cells from one location to another in order to better contour the body. The results are typically very natural and can last anywhere from 3 to 5 years.

We have had excellent success using fat transfers for buttock augmentation, and have achieved extremely natural looking results. If you are interested in learning more about silicone implants or autologous fat transfer I encourage you to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to see which procedures are best for you.

Hello LaraCraft.  To answer you question it is probably both.  Depending on how large ones buttock is to begin with wqill determine how much volume you would need.  Remember with all fat transfers, the body only retains 50-70% of the fat injected.  Multiple proceedures would be needed.
