Q: Dr. Eppley ,I have a question about the Brazilian Butt Lift. I am wondering with this procedure if the fat could be taken from my stomach? Also is there an extra fee for the liposuction that takes place for the fat transfer to the buttock?
A: The fat harvest portion by liposuction of a Brazilian Butt Lift is included as part of the overall buttock augmentation procedure and fee. That is, perhaps, one of the great appeals and bonuses of the procedure. While the amount of fat that will survive after injection is unpredictable, the body contouring effects from the liposuction harvest are predictable and assured.
The stomach is almost always the first place on the body that is liposuction harvested. And for the vast majority of patients it is also the greatest source of donor fat material.
