Almost all qualified plastic surgeons are trained to perform fat grafting to the buttocks. However, there is a large variation in the experience any individual surgeon has with the technique. Fat grafting for buttock augmentation coupled with liposuction (Brazilian butt lift) is a cosmetic procedure and doctors who specialize in this naturally will feel most comfortable with it and can give you a reasonable expectation for the result. While a straightforward procedure, I believe it requires understanding the patients desires, investing in the right equipment and staff training, and having done a large number of cases to put the patient in the best position for a great outcome. After all this, you must feel comfortable with him or her so that you have a ‘meeting of the minds’ where your goals are the same. Good luck and I encourage you to get more than one consult.
