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.

    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😂💃💕

  3. Sheryl says:

    I am having my procedures today, in just a little while. I am already thrilled. Dr Long takes such an interest in the YOU results. He doesn’t just want you to look great, but he wants you to be healthy. I feel totally comfortable going into this procedure. Thank you Dr Long for instilling such confidence.

    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

  7. Alicia D. says:

    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!

    • nathanlongmd says:

      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.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      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?

  8. Carolina says:

    The woman that answers the phone is not friendly at all – all her answers and short and made it sound as you are so bothering !!
    No help or guidlines at all from her – So calling her is definitely loosing a patient !!
    Also told me that the earliest appointment would be in over 3 months and if I want to be in the waiting list , I have to go there abd pay her $300
    What ?!!
    Very Disappointed !!!

  9. Rinna says:

    How many areas do you perform liposuction on to transfer to the buttocks ?
    Can i determine how many cc of fat i would like to be injected ?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Rinna, thanks for writing in! Usually one area of liposuction is performed per fat transfer. We can work with you on your goals and help you to find a realistic expectation on what we can achieve for you.

  10. Dominique Myles says:


    I would to have my inner thigh area lippo and that fat transfered to my buttocks. Is that an option? Most of the reviews I’ve read stated that the fat was lippo from the back or stomach area to the buttocks.

  11. Jlthorn says:

    I had my BBL procedure yesterday and I am very pleased with my results. Actually better than what I had expected with my body type. Dr.Long and his staff took very good care of me and have been very helpful. I most definitely recommend this clinic to anyone who is interested in having liposuction or fat grafting procedures.

  12. Cierra says:

    I have 6 kids and my last are twins. How long after my twins can I get surgery done? I wear a size 9 but I want a flat stomach and bigger butt. I have a flat back.

  13. Roshanda says:

    Hi Dr. LONG,
    Ive scheduled to have my procedure in March of next year. My consultation went great. She was very informative. The only concern I had was, I didn’t get to meet you upfront. She told me I would meet you the day of the procedure. Im sure you trust your staff, but what if you have a different opinion the day of?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Roshanda, you are ALWAYS welcome to come visit with Dr. Nathan Long prior to your procedure. Since your appointment isn’t until March, it could be that the areas being treated will change and may need re-evaluation. It’s usually best the day of for this very reason. You can come in a see us as many times as you would like to make sure we have a realistic goal for you. We are a great team here and usually your first consultation is with one of our consultation specialist. Dr. Nathan Long stays in surgery most every day M-F, as well as patient follow ups. However, he will always take the time to see you. Would you like to schedule a time to see him before the day of your procedure?

  14. Roshanda says:

    Staff is great! You hit the head on the nail. I have a vision of how I want my future body to look. I just want to make sure it’s realistic haha! I would love to come in again just to meet Dr. Long whenever he is available. It would just ease my nerves a little.

  15. Dorthe says:

    I have a small depression (aprox. 2 x 0.5-1 inch) after lipo suction 1 year ago. Can you remove that with fatgrafting in local anesthesia? What would the price range be?

  16. Regina Fields says:

    I received tumescent liposuction of my abdominal and my experience was wonderful. Dr Long and his staff made me feel very comfortable, best staff I have ever seen. I would recommend his practice to all. Thank you all again for a wonderful experience

  17. Armando says:

    I see a lot of women work that you have done ….. But I was wondering do you also do male ….. Just fat removal not a transfer if so I would like to have a consultation very soon

  18. Kendra says:

    I am so pleased with my results! I love Dr. Long and the staff. Yadi helped with every step of the way. I’ve had liposuction twice and each time was a great experience. I would definitely recommend their office. Everything was amazing!

  19. sara says:

    hi I was wondering if you can take fat from the lower abdominal area. I went to a consultation in san antonio and they said they could take fat from my back and sides but if I wanted my tummy done I would have to come in to a separate procedure. I’m not highly over weight I’m 5″2 and 134 lbs. and I’m a ddd so I know a lot of that is in my boobs. so I’m not highly over weight.

  20. Neka Bolden-Hardnett says:

    Hello…my name is Neka,
    I just have question, do you do the abdominoplasty + fat transfer. If so what the price?

  21. Kim says:

    I want to make an appointment for a consultation but I want to meet with Dr. Long….I’ve had surgeries and procedures done before and I have never heard of waiting until the day of to meet the doctor doing the actual procedure.

  22. Machelle says:

    So lipo stomach and fat transfer to butt is 5900? Does it matter the size of the stomach? How much additional for the back?

  23. vivianxx0x0 says:

    Dr Long.

    I am petite I have SOME fat that are bothering me… some doctors told me that I do not have enough fat to be transferred. do you work with all body sizes? I want to transfer the fat I do have from my abdomen and flank to my back side. Also my job requires a lot of seating, if I take 2 weeks off will that be enough to go back to work?

  24. Raena Cole says:

    Hi Dr. Long, can you do tumescent fat removal from around the knees? I am what they call knock-kneed and I feel like it’s even worse because it seems like fat is on the inside of the kneecap when my leg is extended. I know this is weird, but just thought, why not?
    Are the people in your photo gallery recipients of your $5980 procedure or did they have additional procedures that could inflate the cost?

  25. Twyla Hopkins says:

    If you don’t accept insurance how much for arms,thighs,tummy, and butt. Had a weight loss surgery 10 yrs ago and I’ve done everything but can’t get rid of the extra skin hope you can help. Thank You
