I am a 32 year old sickle cell patient interested in butt augmentation with fat transfer. I'm 5'5 and went from 205 pounds to 180, I have excess abdominal fat despite the weight loss. I would like to know wether my sickle cell would prevent me from having this procedure done. And what would be the best procedure to attain a rounded bottom without implants?
