Fat transfer from thighs to buttocks

Thank you for your question. Yes, when planning a Brazilian butt lift, patients can look forward to a double benefit: reducing areas of unwanted fat while gaining a perkier, rounded posterior. Each procedure must be planned according to the individual needs of patients, harvesting fat from target areas of the torso, thighs or knees and transferring it to create smooth, attractive contours optimized for each person. The amount of fat transferred from your thighs depends on the quantity available. That said, you definitely have to choose your surgeon correctly and make sure that he/she has the training and experience to meet your goals with absolute safety. Best is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with specialized expertise in this procedure.

Fat transfer

Hi thank you for your question! You can transfer fat from any area of your body to augment your buttocks. Obviously volume is of great importance and you may need several different area suctioned at one time to allow for adequate volume enhancement. 

Hope this helps!

Fat transfer to buttock from thighs/legs

Hi, thanks for your question. The answer is yes, fat from anywhere on the body can be used to transfer to your buttocks for augmentation. There are some areas in the body (such as the upper abdomen and outer thigh) where the fat is more fibrous and less soft, however this fat can still be used to augment your buttocks.

In short, yes fat from your thighs can be used to enhance your buttocks.  However, the volume present in the thighs may not be enough to give you the result you desire.  An in person examination with a board certified plastic surgeon will give you the best information.
