Question

I may be interested in this procedure. How much fat on average, would you transfer to the buttocks providing the fat was available?

How many cc's of fat would visually make a difference?

Answer

In this type of surgery, the limiting factor is primarily the fact that to the difference of using implants, the fatty tissue is alive and needs to take as a graft. This puts the restrictions on how much fatty tissue can be transferred in an area, and for this operation usually 300 cc of decanted or filtered fatty tissue per side is the typical limit.

This amount does indeed make a visual difference, which is emphasised by the reduction in the waistline achieved through liposuction.
