How old do you have to be to get the fat injection

There is really no specific age for fat transfer. 
 
If you are a good candidate for surgery and the procedure is indicated for you, then age would not determine your ability to have the procedure.
 
If you are under 18, however, you would need parental consent to have any procedure. 
 
For which area are you considering fat transfer?
