Fat transferLiposuction

Plastic surgeon Angelica Kavouni adds: "Bottom enhancement is huge in the U.S., but silicone buttock implants have never really taken off in the UK, as the surgery can be painful with high risk of infection. Instead, we use the BodyJet system, in which a woman's fat is gently liposuctioned out of the hips, thighs and stomach, then injected into the bottom."

Dr Comins mixes fat transfer with liposuction to reshape the lower back and saddle bags, to make the bottom look bigger and higher. The fat is transferred to the bottom under local anaesthetic. He says: "Fat is rich in stem cells so has a firming and smoothing effect on skin."

However, Ms Kavouni adds: "This is not the treatment for skinny women looking for a bottom boost, as there has to be a decent amount of fat to harvest.
