Fat Transfer Results, Are They Permanent? To Buttock? BBL
a BBL, fat is usually harvested from another part of the body and
then added to the buttock, where it then adheres and creates a blood
supply. Those cells will not migrate elsewhere on their own. Please
see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Do Fat Cells Move after Brazilian Butt Lift?
Well, I am interpreting your question differently from the other 2 physicians answering prior to me. Once the fat cells are grafted into the buttock of a moderately healthy individual, they will quickly become anchored into place (not move elsewhere), and develop a good blood supply within the first month. It is important not to sit on hard surfaces for prolonged periods for one full month after the transfer. Hope this helps!
