Brazilian Butt Lift, candidate
Donor fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift would not be feasable.
Buttock implants are better options for patients who do not have enough body fat for transposition.
Please consult in person with an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon prior to making treatment decisions.
Donor Fat for Brazilian Buttlift?
If you have an identical twin, donor fat can be used. However, if you do not, then you must use your own fat. An exam would be necessary to determine if you have enough fat to transfer. Find the plastic surgeon with the best credentials who has performed hundreds of Brazilian buttlift procedures.
Donor fat transfer
You cannot use donor fat for the procedure. You should get a consultation to see if you are a candidate for Brazilian Butt lift, because sometime we can find enough fat to perform the procdure. Otherwise, you might be a better candidate for gluteal implants.
