Areas where fat is harvested for buttock augmentation

Different surgeons have different philosophies about how many areas you need to perform liposuction on to get the Brazilian buttock augmentation. I have noticed that some surgeons will charge per area of liposuction to harvest the fat to augment shutterstock_185910779the buttocks. In my opinion, this makes absolutely no sense. The buttock augmentation is a buttock augmentation. It is the surgeon’s responsibility to get as much fat as possible to give you the best result. If the areas for liposuction are limited, then you might not get enough fat to augment the buttocks, which is going to defeat the purpose of having a buttock augmentation. In my practice, I include the following areas: the abdomen, flanks, sides, thighs, and upper and lower back. These are the areas where we are going to get the most fat to augment the buttocks. Any minor area where you want liposuction will be an extra charge because those areas, like the arms and chin, will not provide enough fat to augment the buttocks; this is mainly something that you desire and is not part of the procedure.


When I perform the Brazilian buttock augmentation, the fat is harvested from those multiple areas that I described above and then injected into the buttocks and hips for an hourglass shape. If the surgeon does not harvest enough fat to provide at least 700 cc of pure fat, then you are not going to have a good result. So, limiting the areas of fat harvesting by charging per area rather than an inclusive price for multiple areas is not a good option to get the best result. This is why in my practice I include the abdomen, flanks, upper and lower back, and thighs, since they will provide enough fat for me to get the results that you desire.
