Nicholas Chugay, a surgeon in Beverly Hills, Calif., now offers buttock enhancement.

It’s a fact of life that most women think their butts are too big, but some women want a curvier, more substantial behind.

A Beverly Hills, Calif., cosmetic and plastic surgeon has developed a procedure designed to “perk up your flagging assets.” Before Dr. Nicholas Chugay invented his procedure for buttock augmentation, surgeons used silicone gel implants that left unsightly scars and destroyed skin elasticity, or fat grafting that was eventually absorbed by the body. Chugay doesn’t offer details of the procedure but says he’s done numerous successful augmentations so far. The augmentation will set you back $6,000 to $8,000, but Chugay says the results are astounding.
