QUESTION

If I have Injections, can I put Fat on my Butt?

In 2005 I had butt injections, now I would like a fat tranfer from my stomach to my butt iS that possible and safe?

ANSWER

Injections to enhance your buttocks

The key concept is that fat transfer relies on the newly moved fat cells establishing a reliable blood supply. Any foreign body or scar tissue decreases a plastic surgeons ability to safely and effectively use fat to enhance your contour. Even previous fat transfer makes this process more difficult. In addition - be aware there are no "substances" or products that are approved for enhancing the size or shape of your buttocks. Things like silicone injections for this purpose can create significant problems in the future. In our San Francisco, CA area office we exclusively use fat transfer for this purpose because it has a safe, reliable track record.
