Can buttocks fat transfer decrease?

After fat transfer, the fat that was moved acts the same way that it did before the surgery. For example, if you gain weight your abdomen gets fatter. After a BBL, if you gain weight your abdomen can still get bigger, but your buttocks will also get bigger. The same concept is true for weight loss.

Fat loss of products after weight loss

yes weight-loss will cost some loss of but volume.
Weight-loss will cause a decrease in any areas where you store fat.

This includes the buttocks.

Buttocks fat transfer decrease

Thank you for your question. If you loose weight, fat can be lost anywhere including your buttocks. You could have a secondary fat transfer at the bases of the gluteal fold to sure more support to your buttock and improve contour.

Can buttocks fat transfer decrease?

Weight loss will decrease the size of the buttock. Gaining weight will make the buttocks grow due to the weight gain.The fat that remains will stay there for the rest of your life. Like the rest of the tissue in your body this fat will grow and age with you.
Thank you for your question.

Can buttocks fat transfer decrease with body weight changes? + YES! #bbl #fattransfer #brazilianbuttlift

Fat transferred to the butt with a BBL responds the SAME like fat located in any other parts of the body to body weight changes. Body weight loss will make the fat transferred to the buttocks to get smaller. Weight gain will make the fat transferred to the buttock to get bigger, and therefore make the butt larger.
