Fat Transfer to Hips and Buttocks

I commonly transfer fat to the hips during fat grafting to the buttocks. This often hels create an hourglass figure. No two people have the exact same needs so this is something to discuss with your sugeon at a preoperative visit.

Is fat transfer to the hips successful?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Fat transfer to the hips is often performed in conjunction with the BBL, although occasionally it is done as an isolated procedure. In order to achieve curvature to the hips the best method is using fat grafting. The reliability of the fat take, though, is less than in the BBL because there is no real muscle in the hip region with an extensive blood supply. Nevertheless it is still the best means of augmenting your hips, and many times the results are very impressive. You need to discuss all of this with your plastic surgeon. Good luck!

Any Areas That Doctors Do Not Recommend Getting Fat Grafted?

Fat transfer to the hips can be very effective and many patients achieve a great shape when performed correctly. Seek a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of these procedures, has great reviews and photos, and is an expert in this field.

it would rather much better  to you , might loose at least 5 lbs more, in order to stay ready . for the whole  procedure, yes you be sitted since  the next day because the 90% of the grafted fat goes at upper middle of each one of your buttocks even deeply into your muscles and only 10 % on lower middle ( where exactly you put your butts on sitting down) that is the reason why you may ;but of course you should be lying down and at your both sides  in alternate way to sleep avoiding normal upper position sleeping go ahed with  A CERTIFIED ASAPS SURGEON

Fat Grafting to the Hips for an Hour Glass Shape.....

Yes, fat grafting to the hip region is very common. I place fat in that area on just about all of my Brazilian Butt Lift patients.   If you would like to see photos, check out my website at the link below. 
At 5'3'', you should have enough fat available to graft to this area.  If you have enough tissue in this area to graft to, you can get a significant increase in volume/size of this area. 

I would definitely not recommend sitting. How long....?  You will hear many different suggestions regarding this issue.  Always check out the before and after results of surgeons you are considering.  If they have Great LONG Term results, then I would follow their recommendations.
Good Luck

All your questions and concerns should be answered by your surgeon before surgery.

What you should expect and the issue of curves, adding fat and volume to hips, thighs should beaddressed even if you have to postpone the date of surgery.
