I was wondering if it's possible to do liposuction and have the fat transferred to my buttocks.

VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring with Fat Grafting -- Alternative is VANQISH, Sculpsure, Coolsculpting
procedure. This can give you an ultimate outcome. You can
use fat from the lipo to transfer to buttocks for an hourglass shape.

Brazillian with Hour Glass
The hour glass figure can be obtained with selected liposuction. The fat removed can then be placed in the buttock area. Here are some key points after the surgery.Post-Op Instructions
Have someone drive you home after surgery and help you at home for 1-2 days. Get plenty of rest; follow balanced diet.
Decreased activity and pain medication may promote constipation, so you may want to add more fresh fruit to your diet, and be sure to increase fluid intake.
Take pain medication as prescribed. Do not take aspirin or any products containing aspirin unless approved.
Do not drink alcohol when taking pain medications.
If you are taking vitamins with iron, resume these as tolerated.
Do not smoke, as smoking delays healing and increases the risk of complications.
IMPORTANT: YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE SIT ON YOUR BUTT
FOR THREE WEEKS AFTER SURGERY
Walk as soon as possible, this helps to reduce swelling and lowers the chance of blood clots.
You may shower 48 hours after surgery.
Do not drive until you are no longer taking narcotic pain medications.
You will likely be able to resume most social and employment activities in 2-3 weeks.
Do not sit directly on your butt for three weeks after surgery.
You may sleep on your stomach or sides.
Strenuous exercise and activities such as sports should be avoided for 4 weeks.
No hot tubs, pools, ocean or swimming for 4 weeks.
I hope these instructions help.

Liposuction or lap band?
- Although you are overweight, you may not be fat enough to qualify for a lap band.
- Your BMI is 32.
- Liposuction will not lead to weight loss but it can change proportions.
- You can consider liposuction of the abdomen, back and core with the fat transferred to the buttocks.
- Be sure your surgeon explains the pros/cons of fat transfers -
- Liposuction results are fairly predictable but fat transfers are not.
