Q:  How much fat can you add to each buttock?

A:  The answer to this popular question is 600cc – 1 liter.  Think of a 1 liter bottle of Aquafina or soda.  The concern of injecting more than 1 liter into each buttock is that the excess fat may not have enough of a blood supply to survive.  Those that have great skin tone are likely to have the best results.  Also, to bring out those curves, liposuction around the buttock area; to the waistline and upper back is just as important as the fat transfer.
