Fat Transfer

As the name suggests, fat grafting or the fat transferring process focuses on removing the fat from one part of the body to another, to remove unwanted fat from one area and transfer it to another area of the body. A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) also operates on this process. If the treatment focuses on a large area, the procedure may be divided into more than one session.

What’s the Procedure for a Fat Transfer?

A fat transfer process can be carried out in a few hours, and according to the procedure’s demand, you may have to stay in the hospital overnight.
The procedure may be classified into these broad steps:


The doctor recommends the best choice of sedation for you. Since the process can vary a lot, it may be performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the extent of the operation.

The incision

Fat is removed after making small cuts on the selected area. From these small cuts, a thin tube is used to suck out small amounts of fats. Sutures are used to close these cuts.

Closing the incision

The fat removed from the area is treated by removing any fluids from it, including blood.


The treated and separated fat is then injected into the area that is being treated. Since injections are used to add fat, stitches are not usually needed.

Should I get a Fat Transfer?

This choice depends entirely on the look you are aiming to achieve, if you feel like you can spare some fat from one part of the body and would like to see it in some other area, the fat transfer procedure is entirely for you!

Recovery & Results

Depending on areas that were involved during the fat transfer procedure, you may need help with chores in the next few days. The procedure itself is not very painful, but once the effects of anesthesia wear off, you might experience some pain for a few days. There might be some significant bruising and swelling for a few days, and a few small scars that will fade.
