Having a big peachy backside seems to be a very popular trend at the moment, from celebrity hotties like Kim Kardashian, to social media influencers, and everyone in the fitness industry. While some of us are blessed with a naturally fuller bootie, the rest of us need to put in a little extra work to get the bubble butt we want. There are several ways to add volume to your backside from physically putting in the work and the gym and growing your glutes, to working out your glutes using high tech medical devices such as EmSculpt treatments, that literally work out your muscles for you. While growing your glutes naturally or with a little bit of medical help will make a difference, if you are truly looking to add significant projection to your backside, you may need to go with a more medical route. Before you start running for the hills thinking about surgical butt implants, keep in mind that there are a few minimally invasive procedures that are designed to grow your bootie (without having to go under the knife). One of these treatments is the Sculptra butt lift, which is an injectable filler butt augmentation that works by stimulating your own collagen production, which causes your butt to grow over the course of 1 - 3 months. For additional resources check out this site for your local plastic surgery clinics that offer this procedure. Whether you decide to go all natural or add a little extra with the help of our trusted medical community, here are a few steps you can take to grow your backside.

Work out your posterior chain

Your posterior chain includes all the muscles that make up the back side of your body. Needless to say - your glutes are part of your posterior chain and are indirectly connected to several other muscle groups within your posterior chain. If you want to target specifically your butt (without increasing the size of your overall legs), you can work with exercises that target the muscles on the posterior side of your body. Some of these exercises include deadlift variations, lunges, glute bridges, and supermans. Obviously squats are huge when it comes to growing your glutes, so if you're okay with thickening your thighs along with your glutes, squats are a great exercise to add to your workout routine. Also keep in mind that if you want to grow your glutes, no matter how much exercise you do, you're going to have to eat in a slight surplus of calories. If you maintain your caloric intake, you may see some projection, but will likely not see as much of a difference in size as you would with an increase in calories.

Electromagnetically induced muscle contractions

What sounds like a slightly intimidating medical procedure, is actually an amazing tool that can be used for those of you that are too busy to hit the gym on a daily basis. EmSculpt technology is based on electromagnetic muscle stimulation that works by sending electrical pulses to the muscles through the use of an applicator that is placed on the area you would like to treat. These pulses cause involuntary muscle contractions, resulting in the effects of a regular workout, without having to work out. There are several variations of these machines including CoolTone, EmSculpt, and EmSculpt Neo, all of which essentially do the same thing: work out and contract your muscles for you. This resource goes in greater depth about the intricacies of this procedure. Each session will last you 30 minutes and can be administered up to four days a week for optimal results.

Non surgical butt enhancements

Even if you're ready to take the leap and get an artificially larger bootie, let's face it - surgery can be scary. Not only are butt implants and Brazilian Butt Lifts super invasive, but they come with down time and a whole list of possible risks and side effects. Instead, try going for a minimally invasive butt lift. This will allow you to get results that wouldn't be possible by working out alone, but won't force you to take weeks off of work and deal with the pain of post operational recovery. Sculptra is a minimally invasive injectable butt enhancement and works by stimulating your own collagen production in the treatment area. The collagen then wraps around particles that would normally break down in your body, causing the treatment area to grow in size over the course of about two months. The downside: you have to wait 2 - 3 months to see the results. The plus: it is FDA approved, safe, and effective with no down time. On top of that, the results come out looking natural, leaving you with a fuller and plumper backside.

Overall there are plenty of ways to grow your bootie whether that be through consistent exercise and a caloric surplus or with the help of medical tools that are readily available to us. Whatever you decide to do, be sure to speak with an experienced doctor like Dr. Schwarzburg, MD at Skinly Aesthetics surgery center to guide you in the right direction. Growing your butt is not an easy task and the more help you can get the better!
