Your Own Body will Assist
Similar to breast augmentation by fat transfer, we can also enhance the behind by harvesting fat tissue from other body regions. This method is also commonly referred to as “Brazilian butt lift”.
In the case of the buttocks, a somewhat larger amount is needed: for a larger behind or for bolstering up very lax skin, up to 300 or 350ml body fat for each side may be required. In extreme cases, very slender women may have to actually gain weight before the procedure at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in order to be able to provide enough own body tissue for liposuction.
On principle, the buttocks are an ideal region to receive a fat transfer: thanks to the good blood circulation in the gluteus maximus muscle, the transferred fat will be integrated very well.

FAQ on a Gluteal Augmentation by Fat Transfer
Who may benefit from a gluteal augmentation by fat transfer?
A gluteal augmentation by fat transfer is an option of choice when the behind is flaccid and sagging, e.g. after heavy weight loss. Moreover, this method presents an alternative for all who do not like the idea of wearing an implant.
By using fat transfer from other parts of one’s own body, the natural roundness of the behind can be bolstered up again quickly and without the need for large incisions. However, a gluteal augmentation by fat transfer also means that in the case of very tight skin, several operations may be required at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. These will take place at intervals of at least six months in order to achieve the desired size.
Generally speaking, the behind can thus be enlarged in several steps without any limits. In case of a desired extreme volume enlargement, however, an implant would be the better choice.
Our team at Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will be happy to advise you in detail about which possibilities exist in your particular case. Please feel free to contact us about this.
How do we conduct a gluteal augmentation by fat transfer?
A gluteal augmentation by fat transfer can be performed at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery on an outpatient basis. First, we will use a fine hollow needle (cannula) to extract the required fat from one more body zones (e.g. at the abdomen and the thighs). The fat cells will be collected in a sterile environment and processed.
Next, we will inject them via fine, blunt cannulas directly into the buttocks. Depending on the number of body regions the fat cells are extracted from, the gluteal augmentation by fat transfer will take two to three hours. The behind is then dressed in cotton; compression underwear will protect those body parts where the fat cells were extracted from.
What is important following a gluteal augmentation by fat transfer?
During the first days, sitting may be cumbersome since the buttocks may be swollen. That is why for 6 weeks, patients should not sit at all or at least as little as possible. Smaller haematomas may occur as well. What may be more unpleasant, however, are the sensations perceived at the places where the fat cell extraction took place; they can be compared to muscle soreness. For three weeks following a gluteal augmentation by fat transfer, you will be wearing compression underwear. During this time, the haematomas and swelling will disappear.
The behind is basically an ideal place for a fat transfer treatment, since the fat cells can heal well in the gluteal muscles with their strong blood flow. Still, a certain loss in volume must be taken into account since not all fat cells will bond with the muscle tissue. The final result will be visible after about three months. If a further volume increase is desired, the treatment may be repeated half a year after the first operation at the Nürnberger Klinik for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
We will inform you comprehensively in a detailed personal consultation about any potential risks as well as how we will proceed with the gluteal augmentation by fat transfer in your individual case. Please feel free to contact the team around Dr. Jens Baetge about this.
