Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 07 June 2011


I am very interested to know about fat transfer from tummy to buttocks, how much is the cost of the procedure and whether this fat in buttocks is forever?

I've heard that this fat dissolves in liver and regularly should be topped up.

I am very desperate to know this information, because I have a very flat bottom and big tummy.

This has made me depressed for years and years, no confidence to go out. This is a dream for me to get this done.


The fatty tissue that is added to the buttocks is subject to the same type of biological behaviour that has made the bottom flatter.

In time, usually a period of 5 to 8 years, it's volume would be expected to decrease, although it is not sure to disappear completely.

In some people, fat transfer around the body seems to last a lot longer, but I would not be able to guarantee that in any individual case.

Most certainly, with the ageing process there is also some loss of volume in the buttocks region, but that tends to affect people in their 50s or later.
