Fat Transfer with Tumescent Liposuction 


View More Transformation Videos

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 with tumescent liposuction, you are awake but heavily sedated. 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). 

  • Tumescent liposuction is safer than techniques that require general anesthesia.
  • Tumescent liposuction results are similar to or better than general anesthesia techniques.
  • Tumescent liposuction allows the patient to return home the day of the procedure.
  • Tumescent liposuction lowers the cost of liposuction procedures by allowing them to be done in the doctors office. There is no additional charge for a surgical-center, hospital or anesthesiologist.

      We do have a laser treatment that may help but at this time we are mostly focusing on Tumescent Liposuction with Fat Transfer. There are tons of scar creams out there, but if you keloid “scar thickens or is raised” there may not be a whole lot of options that we could provide. I would recommend calling your plastic surgeon that did the tummy tuck and seeing if they have any options. Hope this helped you.

    I came in and got a consultation and I was recommended for a 360 lipo. My concern is does the include the back fat and bra line? I was told I don’t need the fat transfer because my bottom half is already large

    • Towana Ellis says:

      I also want to know if there are any specials. I came in 2 years ago and the price has gone up. Are you guys able to honor the quote I have from 2 years ago???

    I just had a baby 7 weeks ago. Is that too soon to have the tumescent lipo + fat transfer procedure? I also have slightly loose skin and diastasis recti so would that affect anything?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Of course! Our in-house: you can pay as little or as much as you can towards your balance. Once your balance is paid, you may schedule your surgery. Also we offer CareCredit which allows you to pay payments after surgery.

We want to hear from you!
