Fat Transfer with Tumescent Liposuction

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.

      Have you looked at the pros and cons of a tummy tuck versus tumescent liposuction? We offer tumescent liposuction, not a tummy tuck. We do not cut the skin. We make tiny incisions.

        Dr. Long
        I’ve heard amazing things about your practice and I can’t wait to call your office this Monday. However, I have one concern, I got laser lipor on my abdomen 3 years ago at another Dallas location. Everything was great however I just had another baby 10 months ago!!! I need a MOMMY MAKEOVER ASAP. Will you be able to work with me? I’m looking into laser lipo or a fat transfer.

      • nathanlongmd says:

        Jessica, let’s talk on Monday! Make sure to schedule a complementary consultation. 214-631-5664

        We will need to look at your abdomen. We can’t wait to meet you!

      • Alex says:

        Hello. I had fat transfer to my buttocks in 2011 and I didn’t notice a big difference. I had my second child in 2012 and had a tummy tuck with lipo in December 2014. I asked my plastic surgeon about fat transfer to the buttocks last month and he felt as though I didn’t need it, however, I am not proportioned and I would like some sort of shape to my buttocks. What are your thoughts? I would really like to come in for a consultation to receive your honest opinion.

      • Alexandra says:

        I really need a fat transfer, I store fat in the worst places! My back, gut and sides, almost none goes to my lower body. About how much would it be to move the fat from those places to the buttock area?

      • nathanlongmd says:

        Hello Alexandra,

        The starting price for liposuction of either the Abdomen or Flanks to the buttocks is $4980. Please schedule a free consultation! You can call us or email to schedule.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Hello Renita,

      We do not perform tummy tucks. We can however perform tumescent liposuction in the tummy area. Please call or email us to schedule a free consultations. Thanks!

      • nathanlongmd says:

        Jessica, in some cases the price is adjusted but usually at an increased rate due to a larger size. Would you be available to meet us for a complementary consultation?

  1. Mildred Towery says:

    Do you also do hands rejuvenation by transferring fat from hips, thighs, etc.? My hands have no fat on top and this is causing my hands to show veins, bones, tendons. I am uncomfortable with the appearance of my hands.

  2. Monica says:

    Hello Dr. Long
    I live in Houston. So I can’t just make an appointment and drive 4 hours. Altho I would if I knew if U can give me what I’m looking for. I had a cesarean so many years ago. I don’t like the way they sewed me back together. There’s always been extra skin that likes to hang over the scar. I’ve never been able to loose all the weight. So my question is. Can U take fat from the belly and put it in the buttocks and fix the scared area and make it a little more pleasant???
    Thank You

    • nathanlongmd says:

      It is possible. Because of your distance from our clinic, please email us @ NathanLongMD@gmail.com and Yadi will take great care of you making sure all your questions are answered. She will also gather information from you at that time that may further help us evaluate you as a potential patient.

  3. Brittney says:

    Hi I’m looking for dramatic results with the bbl. I want a tiny mid section and rounder hips and a butt that really projects. Nicki Minaj would be a perfect example. Are you an aggressive surgeon? My measurements are currently 36-28-39. And I’m interested in your promotion. I would like lipo to my arms full back and inner thigh. I look forward to hearing from you!

  4. Janelle says:

    I am interested in this procedure, but I live 8 hours away. I am willing to make that drive but is it possible to do the consult and surgery all in the same week?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Janelle, it is possible. However, we may require you to stay in the Dallas area for 2 weeks, and you must make all of your scheduled follow up appointments post surgery.

  5. Angel says:

    Im interested in your promotion but instead of transferring into my buttocks. I would like to have fat transferred into my breasts. And do your company preform facial fillers from fat.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Hello Angel,

      Thank you for your question. We only transfer fat to the buttocks and we do not perform facial fillers from fat. We have great results from fat transfer to the buttocks. Call us or email for a free consultation. Thanks!

So to answer your question… No it does not have to be paid completely off in August because of the estimate given in the office. We need to see you in person to see if you are a good candidate. Call or email us today to schedule a consult!

  7. Kida Allen says:


    I am in the Houston area and I am interested however I’d like to know how much can the stomach area take in lipo? I am asked because I feel like a tuck is what I need because of the hanging skin, however I am not dramatically big. Also, does the special include anesthesia? Do you work in your own facilities, or out of a hospital?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      These are all great questions. Please call us at: 214-631-5664 or email us at: Nathanlongmd@gmail.com

      Our surgery room is located at the same location as our office.

      The prices you see on our pricing page includes: tax, pre-operative appointments, post-operative appointments, local anesthesia, and your first compression garment.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Currently we only offer fat transfer to the buttocks. Ages 18-49 who are otherwise healthy. Patients 50 and over, or patients with any health concerns will need medical clearance from the primary care physician first.

  8. daveron c. says:

    I was wanting to know can you receive a fat transfer if you have had hydrogel injections in the buttocks a year ago.

  9. SHANIQUE says:


    • nathanlongmd says:

      Shanique, you should not be in any pain during recovery. If you are, you need to be seen in our office. We do prescribe oral medication that helps reduce any pain. Most patients require 1-2 days of modified rest.

  10. Monique says:

    Hello Dr. Long

    I have a question how far in advance do you schedule surgeries? With the promotion being this month if I want to schedule for January or February of next year would the price still be the promotional price?

  11. Toni V. says:

    I am interested in your promotion but just curious as to why your pricing is $7,000 cheaper than all of the other competitors in your area? Also, how long am I not able to sit down after the fat transfer to my butt? Thanks for your reply in advance.

  12. Jessica says:

    I am 21 and have always hated my body except my legs so what I am wanting to do is transfer fat from both arms and stomach to my butt I would love to have a flat belly 🙁

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Hi Jessica! We can definitely help you with your arms, abdomen, and buttocks. We would transfer fat from your abdomen to your buttocks. Your arms would be a separate surgery.

  13. Marche watts says:

    I am interested in scheduling a free consultation for tomorrow if possible or anytime before 11 I would like to know how much do you need in advance and can the procedure be done before have the full amount

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Hi! Please come in anytime if you haven’t already called to set up a consultation. Someone is always available to talk with you about pricing and financing. The full amount of your surgery must be paid before surgery can begin. However, by using services like CareCredit, you are able to make small payments monthly until you’ve paid your balance. In that situation, CareCredit or your financing choice, would contact us and pay us the full amount of your surgery, you would then start paying monthly payments to CareCredit.

  14. Toni V. says:

    I am interested in your promotion but just curious as to why your pricing is $7,000 cheaper than all of the other competitors in your area?

      • nathanlongmd says:

        We recommend sitting on a cushion or pillow, but mostly staying off of your buttocks. If your working environment requires you to sit for extended periods, we recommend bringing a cushion or trying to stand more often. You can sit as you did before the surgery, after 1-2 days.

  15. leslie says:

    I’m very interested on the special going on now but have a question can I pay for the surgery this month and have it done in sep. Or it has to be this month?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Leslie, that is an option. Your quote is good for 6 months after your complementary consultation. You can schedule your surgery for up to 6 months after your consultation and receive the current promotions.

  16. myoshia warren says:

    Hello doctor,

    I had a pe back in 2010. I had to have it cut out. I now have a filter my vena cava. I had weight loss surgery in 2013 ( the sleeve ). I have not been on blood thinner for two years per doctor. I want this procedure. Just not sure I am good candidate. Please advise.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      We would most certainly need your primary care doctor to approve the surgery first, given your health history. It’s possible that we may be able to perform surgery with you. Would you be available to meet with us for a complementary consultation?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      We’ve certainly treated patients with hernias, however, it’s usually best to have the hernia repaired, if needed, before your Liposuction procedure. Some patients choose to have the hernia repaired post Liposuction. Hernias are unique in size and vary from patient to patient. We would most certainly need to evaluate you to determine the best treatment plan for you.

  17. Asia j says:

    Hi! I’m interested in taking away the fat in my abdomen and hip area and buttocks and lift as well, any estimate on that?


  18. Daphnae says:

    Hello Dr. Long,

    Is was a patient of yours in 2011 and the results were great but you didn’t offer the butt transfer back then when I asked. My sister and I were the corset sisters…you may remember us! I hate I missed the special but I’m interested in the procedure like I was years back when we first met. When will your next special roll around? I try to avoid financing if I can.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Hi Daphnae,

      Thank you for reaching out to us via our website. As always, come by and visit us or call anytime. Please call our office manager, Yadi, at 214-631-5664 to discuss current promotions and estimates. We would love to see you and take current after photos. Please let us know if this is something you might be able to do.

  19. Tiffiny fields says:

    I have Tyroid diease. It is under control. I take levothyroxine once daily. Interested In lipo in tummy transfer to buttocks. Wondering if I’m able to get work done? I live 2 hours away.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us. If you could please call our office manager, Yadi, at 214-631-5664. She will be able to guide you over the phone. We look forward to speaking with you.

  20. jessica says:

    Hi, I’m interested in the lipo and fat transfer. How long does the procedure take to perform? I have alot of fat to remove. Also, if I wear the compression garment will it flatten my butt .

    • nathanlongmd says:

      All great questions! The compression garment is vital to the success of tumescent liposuction. In our experience, we have not noted any significant reduction in the buttocks area from wearing the compression garment. Our procedures take 2-4 hours which includes your pre-surgery consultation with Dr. Nathan Long, M.D., your surgery & recovery while with us.

  21. Ashanti cooper says:

    Hi I’m a 13 year old plus size gir I really need this surgery to put my tummy fat in my butt for the body I always wanted I’ve been called names my life I want all that to stop so I can be me the way I wanted to be

  22. Virginia herrera says:

    Hola ,quisiera una trasferencia de grasa de mi espalda y brazosy ,asia mis ponpis,me gustaria saber el costo,y en cuanto tiempo podre regresar ami trabajo,yo trabajo parada y caminando todo el tiemo.

  23. Shante says:

    Do You Remove Fat From Arms Too.? If So could iGet fat Removed From My Stomach, Arms, && Inner Thigh Area All In One Day.? Would iBe Able To Get Right Back To Work.? Does CareCredit Require Your Credit To Be Excellent in order To finance.? Will iBe Able To Get the Procedure Done after CareCredit Pays You.? Then Just Pay Them Out.

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Shante, thank you for visiting our website and for your questions. We do remove fat from the arms. Liposuction of the abdomen would be one day. Arms another, and inner thighs another. We split these areas into separate surgeries to reduce the risks. Most of our patients are able to resume work after 2-3 recovery days. CareCredit is a wonderful financing option because it’s fairly easy to qualify & the interest rates are considerably less than others. Once approved, you would use your CareCredit account number to pay us, then pay CareCredit back. I hope this helped answer some of your questions. Please call us or come by. Our office number is: 214-631-5664

  24. Renita says:

    How long after you have a baby do you have to wait for the BBL I’m very interested in getting this surgery soon I had my baby in July?

  25. Nicky says:

    Probably this is not the right thread but I was googling syringoma removals in the Dallas area and your name came up as recommended. I understand you no longer do these treatments (called your office earlier to inquire) but would you happen to have another recommendation especially for dark skinned individuals due to hyper pigmentation?

  26. Demetrice Collins says:

    Hi Nathan,
    I have heard some great things about your practice. I have had the lapband and still no results. I have tried different diets and exercises and no help. Could you please help me?

  27. Vonchez says:

    Hi I am extremely interested in enlarging my butt and hips and here great things about your practice but my problem is I’m 5’5 and 122 lbs meaning I have no access fat to transfer is there any help for me or would it be possible for you to lead me in the right direction?

  28. Vonchez says:

    Yes I just replied to book an appointment but would honestly like to know with my weight (122 lbs @ 5’5) would I have enough fat to transfer and if so would the results actually be noticable?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Yes, we have had great success with similar height and weight. It’s impossible to tell without first looking at your unique shape and determining the best benefit and alternatives. Each case is completely unique. Hope this helps.

  29. Lashonda says:

    I am looking to get this fat transfer done however I am a very large woman I only want a Lil more plumness in the bottom area the rest I just want to take the fat away from arms back and stomach area is this possible and if so what is the price range

    • nathanlongmd says:

      It’s hard to give a price range without first seeing the areas you would like treated. Is it possible to visit us for a complementary consultation? If so, please call us: 214-631-5664

  30. T'Londria says:

    Hi there, what is the difference between the fat transfer from top to bottom and the bbl brazilin butt lift?

    And also do you perform aggressive lipo?

    • nathanlongmd says:

      Thank you for you message T’Londria. The bbl is the same thing as removing fat from the flanks and transferring to the buttocks. We schedule free consults! You can call or email to do that. We do not perform aggressive Lipo.

  31. Roshineke Chaffer says:
