Brazilian Buttock Lift frequently asked question

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.
