Can 800cc of Fat Be Transfered to the Butt?

Iam going to have liposuction in my abs and hips, and they are going to take out 4000cc (4L) and I want to transfer as much fat to my butt, so how much can I transfer? Can I have at least 800cc of fat transfered to each side?

All other things being favorable, 800cc of fat graft per cheek can yield an excellent outcome

Hi there-

Because with any fat grafting procedure you should expect for some of the fatty tissue to be reabsorbed, it is common practice to over-graft, so that the end result is pleasing and satisfactory to the patient.

In my experience doing Brazilian Butt Lift surgery, 800cc per side is a very nice volume, and in fact when significantly less volume is grafted, the result can be disappointing. This, of course also depends on your frame, and the proportions of your body, as well as the proportions you would like to achieve.

It is also very important to be sure you are in good health and a good candidate for the surgery. Be sure your surgeon is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery in order to maximize your safety and satisfaction.

800cc of fat transferred to the butt.

Hello. It is possible to have 800cc of fat transferred to the butt if you desire a large result. Be sure that your surgeon is comfortable in doing this and that he is able to achieve the results desired. This is a safe procedure if done with a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in the brazilian butt lift. Best of luck to you.

Thismay a bit too much for one session

The amount of fat transfer depends on the available fat and available tissue to transplant the fat. For the fat injection procedure you need to have adequate amonut of tissue to transfer the fat into. You can not inject fat in a lump and expect the fat to survive . Please do not push your surgeon to put too much and have issues with fat necrosis and cyst later on. You can have the fat injection in more than one session and get much better result.
