If I get lipo in my stomach and underarms can I put that fat in my butt and thighs? How much would all that cost and can I finance it?
Is It Possible to Transfer Fat from Stomach to Buttocks?

Liposuction and Fat transfer cost approx. $6,000
Of course, fees vary greatly from one surgeon to the next. Our fee for Liposuction of Two Areas and Fat Transfer to the Buttocks in $6,000 (global fee including surgeon's fee, anesthesia fee, and OR fee) but I'm sure you can find cheaper and much more expensive. Our patients have the option of financing, however, it has been more difficult to get financing over the last few months. I wish you the best of luck!

Cost of fat transfer to the buttocks also know as Brazillian Buttock Lift
Yes, fat can be suctioned out from the abdomen and injected your buttocks. Cost is usually around 5 to 7,000. Here is what you should know about fat transfer to the buttocks. The procedure can be done under local or sedation. Fat injections often yield safer and better results than silicone buttock implants. Results can be touched up after 6 months and two treatments are often required to get long lasting results- 2 to 5 years.
1. Results are not always predictable in terms of how much of the injected fat is long lasting.
2. Younger patients, who don't smoke, and have sufficient abdominal fat or thigh fat are ideal candidates and have the best results.
3. Make sure your procedure is being performed by a qualified surgeon in a certified facility to minimize risks and complications.
Yes, it is possible. The cost varies by geographical area and surgeon. Generally, the cost will be between $6000-$9000.

Adding fat to my buttocks?
Brazillian buttock lift
The Brazilian Buttock Lift utilizes your own fat, such as the abdomen and under arms, to augment the buttocks and hips and lift. The entire region can be sculpted using a combination of liposuction and fat augmentation. The procedure is as much a reshaping of an entire region as it is an augmentation. The Brazilian Buttock Lift utilizes your own fat to augment and lift. The amount of fat transferred depends on your goals, available fat, and size of your buttocks, and in my practice ranges from 250 to 1250 cc per side. The cost depends on the amount of fat transferred and the number of area treated with liposuction. I spend a great deal of time with my patients prior to the procedure to ensure that I achieve their goals, as the desired buttock shape depends greatly on ethnic and cultural standards of perceived beauty. This procedure, more than any other, has reinforced my belief that communication and listening to my patients is the key to a successful outcome.
I recommend a consultation with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss the available treatment options.

The Brazilian or fat transfer
When the fat is transferred to the buttocks, it is often referred to as a Brazilian butt lift. I sometimes refer to this as hyper-feminizing.
Our practice is focused almost exclusively on body contouring using various forms of liposuction and fat transfer.
We perform this procedure routinely.
The procedure takes approximately three hours and is done with patients awake.
Recovery is typically easy, though patients are required to not put pressure on their bottom, avoid sitting and avoid rigorous activity for two weeks after the procedure.
The biggest drawback to fat transfer is the reabsorption of transferred fat.
Fat grafting, or fat transfer, follows the same basic principle as any other form of tissue grafting such as skin, cartilage grafting or bone grafting.
All plastic surgeons are taught these basic principles in our training programs.
The procedure depends on technique as well as patients in terms of the potential for an outstanding outcome.
I suggest you consult with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in this type of procedure.
Best of luck,
Mats Hagstrom, M.D.
