Fat transfer is also called fat grafting or fat injection. Currently, Dr. Nathan Long offers the Fat Transfer with Tumescent Liposuction procedure to the buttocks only. This is done to increase the volume and augment the buttocks appearance. After a Fat Transfer to the buttocks you will see results immediately following your surgery. However, the results you see immediately following your surgery will reduce slightly as swelling resolves. The results will remain overtime in big or small ways. The areas were Tumescent Liposuction was performed, you will see immediate results of a more slim and contoured appearance.

During the process of fat transfer, the fat is suctioned out using the tumescent liposuction technique. Next, the fat is concentrated and the tumescent fluid is removed. During the procedure the skin is not cut. The fat is removed and injected using a very small incision. Finally the fat cells are placed into the buttock area. To be a good candidate for fat transfer it is necessary that enough fat be present in another location for liposuction.

The benefit of using your own harvested fat to augment your buttocks area, is that it is natural. We do not use fat implants to augment the buttocks only your own natural fat.  During your recovery, you will notice in all areas that were treated, some swelling, sometimes minimal bruising (for patients that already bruise easily).

    I had liposuction to my stomach by Dr. Long, a few years ago. It didn’t look as smooth nor contoured as I’d hoped even after following aftercare instructions. Was fat removed? Definitely, I paid for it and I’m thankful. It is my belief that I have scar tissue perhaps from a csection that may have prevented him from doing a better job. My stomach is deformed sadly. The upper part of my stomach was not suctioned however and I truly would feel better without the “hump” at the top of my stomach. Hoping you could take a look at it. The staff and Dr. Long were absolutely wonderful. Because of that, I’d like to look at getting fat transfer to the buttocks using removal from my back/bra area. I just want to be sure it will look as I thought my stomach would. I’m sharing this to say, I trust Dr. Long. I think this will help me to feel better about the first procedure. It would mean a great deal if he could reach out to me to take a look and maybe tell me what went wrong. As well as explain what he can do or ensure with the next procedure I’d like him to complete. He’s a great doctor! Thanks so much!

    I love Dr. Long and the staff..They are so genuine and welcoming. I have been thinking about this surgery for some time and I finally did it and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to go. I have four kids and recently LISD a substantial amount of weight including my butt, my upper and lower abs were just holding on for their dear lives 😥Not anymore.. If you want to get any kind of lipo or transfer this is the friendliest, safest place to go! They won’t be ready for me this summer😂💃💕

    Dear Dr. Long,

    I’m just counting down the days until my fat transfer procedure. I can’t wait to be free of insecurity when it comes to being able to fit my clothes, I’m exactly one month away! However, I did have a couple of questions.
    1) Is there a difference in results between patients going completely under and those who just use tumescent and sedatives?
    2) What percentage of fat cells are you able to keep alive and what does that mean as far as long term results?

    Thank you so much, Iook forward to meeting you,

    Alexandra Henderson

    Hi Dr Nathan I’m South African and would like to do fat transfers to my buttocks…I have an idea of how big I want them and all…I just need to know the price and a summary of the procedure or process…and the duration of the healing period. Thank you

    Had abdomen lipo & transfer to buttock area in May, 2016. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a great success story like others did. I lost a lot of volume n 6 weeks…and still losing volume in my buttock area.

    I’ll probably need to have another round of fat transfer. I’m very discouraged & sad that I have to do this again in such a short time frame. 😦

    The office staff is wonderful to work with!

      Alicia, thank you for writing in.Would you be available to meet with us for another follow up? Also, we would love to do more pictures of the treatment area to see a comparison to your before. One of our many goals is to give our patients results that match their expectations. Please call us to resolve and also please come by anytime during our office hours.

      Most patients are able to return back to work within a day or two. It really depends on how physical your work is. Are you able to stand up regularly instead of mostly sitting?
