This procedure is not routinely performed.  There is not enough fat to transfer from breast unless the breasts are massive.

There are generally better donor sites than the breasts for fat transfer. Consult with three board certified plastic surgeons who are expert and experienced in fat transfer.

Fat Transfer like other cosmetic surgery varies considerably across the country and even in the same area. South Florida tends to have lower fees then more expensive areas such as New York or Los Angeles. We charge starting at $4000 + MD Anesthesia related costs for fat transfer to the buttocks. Since you can get quality work at lower costs, patients will travel from throughout the state, the country, and internationally to have surgery in South Florida.

To ensure that you are receiving quality work with personalized care at the most cost effective prices, consult with board certified plastic surgeons that own their own nationally accredited facilities. The quality must be maintained at the highest level to maintain accreditation. The surgeons also have incentive to hire and train quality staff (to ensure that surgery is efficient and enjoyable), to ensure comfortable and private facilities (to encourage referral), and to eliminate waste (to ensure that these facilities can compete effectively).

Transfer fat from breast to buttocks

I am not sure that you could obtain sufficient amounts of fat from the breasts to adequately augment the buttocks. Generally this may take a minimum of 300cc and upwards of 700cc to achieve sufficient buttock enlargement. This would require that at least twice as much be harvested (600 to 1400cc) to process and purify.

Fees would take into account the amount of time which is significant. This would range from 6-12,000. However, this is only an estimate.

Wow now this is a fascinating question, most would want this in just the opposite direction!! I would have to see photos of your two areas to determine if this was even feasible.  By removing fat from the breast you may create a droop to it, by not putting enough in the buttock you may not notice it. Be careful with this concept and seek someone who has done a lot of these.
