There isn't one volume that fits all "average" size patients. It depends on a number of factors including the

anatomy of your buttocks, the volume of fat available to graft from other areas, and what you think looks desirable. If you you ask ten people what they think looks "nice", you will probably get several different answers. 

On the other side of things, how much fat is safe to put in at one time? Is it as safe to put in 1000cc per side as it is to put in 400cc? At least one study would suggest that it is not, and that very large fat grafting volumes may predispose you to complications such as infection or fat necrosis. 

In general fat augmentation is a great procedure, but like every other procedure, it's the judgement of the surgeon combined with an educated patient that helps make it a safe and successful procedure.

Amount of fat injected in Brazilian Butt Lift depends on your personal goals.

The amount of fat that is injected into a Brazilian Butt lift procedure can be measured in cc or milliliters. This volume has to be determined by plastic surgeon in consultation with the patient and his depending on the patient's goals. In our practice, we find it essential to use digital morphing software to transform the preoperative photos of the patient and to give the patient an idea of what they could look like after the surgery. This is a powerful communication tool that allows us to understand the patient's goals and to give the patient a realistic idea of what they can expect. With this software we can get a very good idea of how much volume the patient would like to persist in the gluteal region and therefore how much liposuction must be accomplished before hand.

Average cc's used for Brazilian Butt lift

We have done patients of all sizes, and who want anything from a slight change in contour, to J-Lo type butts. You would be surprised how much fat we can extract, even on thin women. We were able to get 250cc concentrated fat per buttock cheek into a 97 pound girl.

To find out the average amount of fat injected per cheek for women of all weights, I recently surveyed my last 100 Brazilian Butt Lift cases. The average amount calculated was 580 cc per cheek.

Our personal record is near 1500cc (!!!) concentrated fat per buttock cheek.
