Yes.  The fat can be transferred to the hips as well, and I do it every day.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts and liposuction procedures each year. Look for great reviews and great before and after pictures.

Liposuction and Fat Grafting for wider hips

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Yes. I have performed many, many procedures with fat grafting to the hips. Generally, my patients want a combination of fat grafting to the buttocks and hips for their Brazilian Butt Lift surgery to achieve an hourglass shape, but the procedure can be tailored to fit your desired result. 

The cost depends on what areas you would like liposuctioned and how much fat you would like transferred. I would charge $6000-8000 for this procedure. I would have to see you in person to provide you with a more accurate quote.

Remember that internet conversations can never replace in person consultations with a board certified plastic surgeon. Thank you!

Fat Transfer to the Lateral Hip Depressions for an hour-glass figure

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Thank you for your question.  While a common misconception is that fat can only be injected into your buttocks, fat is very commonly injected into the lateral hip depressions in order to provide patients with a curvier or hour-glass figure.  The cost for a fat transfer procedure depends on how much liposuction must be performed and how many areas have to be treated in order to harvest enough fat for the fat transfer.  Because this is highly variable and depends upon your current body dimensions, availability of fat, etc... I would recommend scheduling a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who is well-experienced in fat transfer and body contouring procedures.  I hope this helps!

There are two types of surgical procedure to widen the hips and or the buttocks.
1: Fat transfer, if you have enough fat.
2: Buttock and hip implants can widen the hips and enhance the buttocks.
Liposuction can reshape the body and enhance the curves

Fat transfer to hips

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

The answer is definitely yes. Fat transfers can be done to any part of your buttocks and/or hips, or any other area that you wish to have augmented. Part of the fat transfer procedure is to do liposuction on any of the problem areas that might bother you and then take that fat and inject it in the areas of your hips that you wish to have augmented. Not only do you get the benefit of the fat transfer, but also the other areas of your body where the fat was removed become sculpted and smaller, thus creating the hourglass shape that you are looking for.

As always, choose a board certified plastic surgeon with vast experience with this procedure so you can have the confidence that you will get the best results that you are looking for!

Thank you for the question.

He presented but live surgery uses liposuction and transfers that fat to the buttocks and hips. It's important to reshape the buttocks and widen the hips with fat, while using liposuction to narrow the waistline. This gives a beautiful S-shape to the waist, buttocks and thighs.

Discuss your desire to widen your hips with your surgeon. They will be able to transfer fat into the area.

The hips can be made wider with fat grafting. This is often done during a brazilian butt lift in patients that desire a wider look.
