So we are going to explore answers from experts around the country in this article to give you the necessary insight you can use when deciding whether a fat transfer butt augmentation is the solution you are looking for when it comes to your “bottom line”.

Dr. Mendieta says people who undergo the procedure can roughly expect to see 60% of the injected fat to stay put, commenting that the body naturally reabsorbs and gets rid of the rest. “The great thing about the Brazilian butt lift surgery is that the fat cells that survive the transfer will live in their new location forever.”

For the Brazilian butt lift, about 50 to 70% of the fat survives long term according to Kenneth Hughes, MD in Los Angeles, CA. “I have seen patients after a year or two and the pictures reveal that the gain is permanent. Perhaps this is due to injection technique, harvest technique, amount transferred.”

In an interview with American Health and Beauty, Dr. Cole says, “We’ve had patients 2 or 3 years out that say the results they get after approximately a month to six weeks appears to be the fat that they’re going to get long term."

He goes on to say, “There are a lot of people who are performing this procedure in backyard alleys and such; they’re injecting all kinds of things to increase the size of the buttocks so patients have to be careful and physicians have to be careful about what they’re doing," states Dr. Cole, "We have not had any real difficulties, in terms of infections or bad outcomes because we are extremely careful with the procedure itself. We do not inject any foreign bodies or silicone or anything of that nature into the buttocks, just the patient's own fat."
