Brazilian Butt Lift a very popular technique
Fat transfer to the buttocks e.g Brazillian lift is becoming a very popular procedure. It is a technical procedure that involve both liposuction and fat transfer. An average of 400cc is needed on each size to be able to have a sizable difference.
The average time frame is 2-4 hours, depending on the amount needed for transfer. Average cost from 5-10k. Best of luck!
How fat transfer to buttocks works
First, excess unwanted fat is harvested from the patient’s flank lumbar region, and occasionally the upper thighs using liposuction techniques. This part of the procedure not only provides the fat necessary for later injection, but also allows the plastic surgeon to sculpt and contour a beautiful silhouette around the buttocks. Before the actual Brazilian Butt Lift surgery your doctor will determine the optimal site from which to harvest fat, taking into consideration the patient’s stature, current shape, and desires. The collected processed fat is then placed in special cannulas and injected through two small incisions (less than 1-cm) into the superior-medial buttocks, just above the gluteal muscle. Studies utilizing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate fat survival following gluteal augmentation have shown that proper handling and placement of the fat in a supramuscular plane (i.e. above the muscle) is important to avoid cellular damage and ensure long-term, predictable graft survival. This part of the procedure allows your doctor to precisely place volume where it is needed to give the illusion of a “lift” while forming a sexy and well-proportioned buttocks, without the scars and extra surgery traditionally needed.
Thank you for your question. It's difficult to give exact recommendations without photos, or an in person consultation as each person is very different and has specific needs and goals. Generally speaking, fat transfer is a great option for patients at a stable weight who wish to move some stubborn fat to their buttocks to get a more aesthetic shape. Your surgeon will remove fat from you abdomen and flanks, will then centrifuge the fat and re-inject it strategically into the bum and hips as needed. Keep in mind that 60% of this fat lives forever, so your surgeon will over-inject initially for best results. Make sure the surgeon you're working with is board certified and has expertise in this area.

Fat Transfer to the Buttock
Fat Transfer From the Belly to Hips and Butt
The amount of fat needed depends on the shape and needs of each individual patient, however in general at least 500cc per buttock need to be placed to see a significant difference. On average patients typically receive around 800cc per buttock side for a total of 1600cc of fat transfer. However just like a breast augmentation the amount of fat needed various from patient to patients. Also the sculpting done with the liposuction is a big part of the procedure to improve the overall shape.
When considering this procedure it is very important that you have your procedure performed by a board certified plastic surgeon.
In general of the procedures that I perform this is one where patients tend to be universally extremely happy.
I hope this helps.

Buttock augmentation with your own fat allows you to get a natural more pleasing shape and contour to the backside by augmenting curves, correcting an imbalance or increasing size and prominence of the buttock.
Fat taken from the abdomen (stomach) can be used for this enhancement, so you get the benefit of reducing your stomach while you enhance your butt and all without implants, which can be painful.
Fat Transfer is an excellent technique to help wth shaping the body and to acheive an hourglass shape.
The procedure is basically a speacialized liposuction and the fat that is removed is prepared for injection. The fat is placed in multiple layers to add 'shape'- shape being the key word. The liposuction is not just for the harvesting but also the shaping to acheive the hourglass shape!
You will need a few days to recover- it will feel like you had a hard workout. Bruising can last 2 to 3 weeks. The small incisions for the fat harvest and injection are place in areas so that they are minimally visible.
On occasion you made need a little more fat added. to acheive a great result you will need to have enough fat for injection!
