Q&A: Can you inject someone else's fat for a Brazilian butt lift?

Ask A Doctor Question:
I know fat is taken from other parts of the body and injected into the buttox, but what if i don't have any fat in other parts of my body? Would i be able to use someone els's? And how much would it cost?
Fat cannot be transplanted from one individual to another for buttock fat grafting. On the other hand, gluteal implants are an excellent alternative for patients who desire a larger buttock but don’t have available fat stores. The cost for gluteal augmentation with implants is approximately $8500-$9000.

No you can not use some one else's fat. Your body will reject that person's fat and create a whole host of problems.. Your other option may be gluteal implants.
