Can I get Butt Implants with fat grafting (transfer) to the butt on top?

Do I have to have less fat than a normal bbl patient if I get butt implants and then fat on top of them? How much is the total for these procedures and what's the total recovery time?

     This can be done, but the fat that is transferred will be less likely to survive and less will be transferred.  If I do this, I only transfer a little fat to improve dimpling.  If you want the best result,  I would have the BBL first and then let things heal.  The buttock implants can be placed at a later date to optimize buttock volume.
