Butt Augmentation With Fat Transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift) in San Diego

What Does It Mean to Undergo Fat Transfer?

People who desire a more shapely and curvaceous backside may find that traditional exercises do little to provide them with the appearance they desire. And after spending so much time dieting and exercising, individuals are often left dissatisfied with their results. Surgery is often necessary to achieve the large, enhanced buttocks many patients desire. Butt augmentation can help shape your buttocks for a more attractive appearance. However, traditional butt augmentation that uses silicone implants often doesn’t provide the natural results many clients want.
The Brazilian Butt Lift uses patient-harvested fat to contour and increase the size of the buttocks, providing patients with the natural, full appearance they have been longing for.

Fat Transfer vs. Implants

Fat Transfer

  • Fat transfer harvests fat from problem areas, which helps slim and tone the patient’s physique
  • The harvesting process uses gentle liposuction to preserve the highest number of fat cells and to contour your trouble areas
  • The fat is then purified for transfer
  • Fat is grafted into the buttocks in even layers, which allows Dr. Pollack to custom-shape your behind to best highlight the natural curvature of your body
  • The fat is injected using a specially designed needle that will result in mild, if any, scarring


  • An incision is created along the lower fold of each buttock, which may result in more extensive scarring
  • A silicone implant is inserted into a pocket created under the gluteal muscles
  • This process may result in a noticeably augmented appearance, especially if there isn’t enough tissue to mask the implant’s edge
  • While implants come in a variety of shapes, it is more difficult to achieve the custom-tailored results of fat transfer
  • Due to the more invasive nature, implants require a longer recovery period
