Can fat be transferred to your legs?

Interesting questions. Let me see if I can answer. First, yes, fat can be transferred anywhere. However, if you are attempting to increase the overall size of the leg, this amount of volume would likely require multiple operations and would really be something too large to expect fat grafting to accomplish. Second, by fgm I am assuming you are referring to female genital mutilation? If so, then whether or not insurance would cover it would depend on the reconstruction needed and on your insurance. This would have to be dealt with on a case by case basis and you would need to see an experienced plastic surgeon to be evaluated and then discuss submission to insurance for approval. Hope this helps!

Fat can certainly be transferred to the legs. But if the goal is to enlarge both legs completely it would be beyond the scope of current techniques
