From Where on Body Is Fat Taken to Be Used in a Butt Lift?

Find out from where on your body the surgeon removes the fat that is then implanted in your butt for a butt lift in this Howcast video featuring plastic surgeon Robert J. Morin, M.D..


We are discussing butt augmentation surgery and as previously discussed the safest way to perform butt augmentation is by taking a patients own fat and transferring to the buttock area. This is called fat graphing or fat transfer procedure. A common question I am asked in my practice is where does this fat come from and this in part determines weather or not someone is a candidate for this type of procedure. In order to use fat in order to increase the volume of someones buttocks a patient needs to have sufficient volume of fat somewhere else.

So extremely skinny patients are not candidates for a buttock augmentation. Um, and there are other ways to augment the butt however the only I believe is the safe way is by using fat. There for in truly skinny patients who do not have a lot of excess fat elsewhere um, they are not great candidates for this procedure. Patients who have a least a mild moderate amount of fat in other places are good candidates and we can take fat from these other places.

Which include the lower abdomen, the upper abdomen, the flanks, the back, the arms, the thighs, the lateral thighs, generally any place where fat exists and we can wsah that fat and process it and put it into syringe's and then inject it into the patients buttock in order to increase a size and volume. So, in terms of answering the question where does the fat come from it comes from a patients own body generally it comes from the areas that we commonly prefer liposuction on which include abdomen, flanks, upper back, arms and legs.
