Unfortunately someone else can't serve as a donor for your brazilian buttock augmentation.  As you probably know, a brazilian buttock augmentation involves harvest fat from areas of YOUR body where there is excess fat and injecting that fat carefully into the central zone of your buttock. In addition, it involves liposculpting the buttock to facilitate a more rounded look. The common donor sites for this procedure is your posterior waist/flanks, lateral thighs, back, waist, and anterior tummy.

Can only use your own fat in a Brazilian Butt Lift

Very interesting question! Unfortunately you can only use your own fat for a Brazilian Butt lift. The reason this procedure works so well is that we are transforming a piece of view to another part of you. Because in the end it is all you, your body will not reject the old fat in new places.

It would be great if this was an option for patients, but it is not. The body will only take (aacept) its own fat cells. If foreign fat cells are injected, the body will reject them and you will not get any results. Your options are to gain weight or to get buttock implants.

Is it possible to use someone else's fat for my Brazilian Butt Lift?

Hit there-

No, unfortunately it is not possible to use someone else's fat- your body would recognize the cells were not your own and the fat would rapidly be destroyed and absorbed.

I would consider gaining a bit of weight or, alternatively, buttock implants.

Fat donation for Brazilian Butt Lift is NOT possible

No. It is NOT possible.

Fat like ALL tissues in our body has a very specific chemically coded indentity which is established very early in fetus development. Each one of us is unique but some of us are closer to each others than others -- chemically and immunologically speaking. Since children get their genes from each parent, they share some features with some of their parents but are NOT identical to them.

Depending on the organ we transplant, the receipient then needs to be on life long immunosupressant medications to prevent their body from rejecting those vital organs.

A prominent projecting sexy butt is nice but is NOT essential for life. No serious doctor would transfer fat from someone else and then put you on these expensive and dangerous medications for life to assure you a nice behind.

Hope this was helpful.
