Amount of fat used in Brazilian Butt Lift varies greatly

Basically the same process used in identifying volume plans for breast augmentation can be used for the Brazilian butt lift (which is really a butt augmentation).

  1. Butt enhancers/sizers, that can be purchased from a variety of online stores
  2. "rice bags" placed in the area and increased in size until the desired outcome is reached
  3. Moldable foam shapes, also available from online stores

However, the only answer that counts will be given by the Surgeon selected for the procedure.  Comprehensive discussion of the desired goal and shape, and evaluation of the starting anatomy will determine the plan and the volume needed.    In our experience the fat volume used can vary from 200cc up to 500cc and higher.

Amt of fat injected 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.

There is no set answer for this.

The main determining factor is how much fat you have to act as donor fat. That can be determined after the surgeon examines you.
The second determining factor is how is what kind of result you want. Some people also want more curves at the hip, and that requires more fat.
Check out the link below and you will see there is a big variation in results, depending on body type and what patients desires were. I have had 2 patients that initially requested only a small augmentation, but after a year or so came back for a reinjection, as now they wanted a bigger enhancement.
I also included a video of the procedure if you are interested.
