I am overweight and was wonder if I can get the fat from my stomach into my butt and the rest thrown out or only a certain amount used plus I was wondering what would be the price of this procedure? Do insurance companies cover any of this procedure?

    Of course you can have fat taken from your stomach and placed in your buttocks, actually this is a quite common procedure. You can have as much, or as little, as you would like removed from all areas of the body and reinjected into the buttocks, breast, face or any other areas you would like. The cost is dependent upon how many areas we are removing the fat from and how many areas we are going to put it back into. Please consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to get a consultation and discuss your specific goals. At that time you will know the exact cost. Unfortunately, no insurance companies will cover this procedure as it is considered cosmetic.

    Yes you can have fat taken from one place and put in your butt, — but it all depends on how much overweight you are and what your expectations are. You need to be seen in person to know what can and what should be done. Cost – depends on how much is done and the experience of the surgeon. Set up an appointment to find out what will work for you. And since this is cosmetic, insurance does not pay for it.
