In this procedure, fat is extracted from elsewhere on the body and injected into the buttocks to increase shape and volume. Liposuction is often used prior to the procedure to help contour the buttocks. Most times, fat is often removed from the abdomen, hips, or back. It is then purified before being injected into the buttocks. The fat is inserted at various depths to ensure the best absorption rate.

What Is Liposuction with Fat Transfer?
Liposuction with fat transfer is a procedure that utilizes excess unwanted fat to augment other areas of the body. It can be a good alternative to other augmentation procedures, and it can be a safe and effective method for addressing multiple concerns with one productive procedure. This procedure is typically used for breast and buttock augmentation.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
The purpose of the liposuction with fat transfer procedure is to increase the volume of fat in the area treated. Prior to treatment, it is important to ensure you have enough unwanted body fat to remove from a specific area. This may require altering your diet.
This procedure is performed under anesthesia. Fat is removed from stubborn areas, and it is injected into the treatment area. The length of a procedure will vary for each person and treatment area.
There is some downtime associated with a liposuction with fat transfer procedure. While you may experience some minor swelling following treatment, this should subside shortly after treatment. It’s important to keep pressure off of the treated area to allow for maximum blood flow. You may also need to follow a specific diet and other directions following a treatment. Our qualified team in Chicago will provide you with all of the pre and post-care instructions you need!
Is Liposuction with Fat Transfer Right for Me?
It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for this treatment. Results will vary for each person and treatment area, and they may be more subtle than other augmentation treatments. It is also important to remember liposuction is not intended to be used as a weight loss procedure.
A consultation with our team in Chicago can help ensure this is the best treatment option for you and your aesthetic goals. It is important to be transparent about your lifestyle, health history, and your goals for treatment.
