Can fat be transferred from one person to another?

I would like to do some fat grafting to my butt. I know a friend of mine was going to the doctor for liposuction, is it possible for me to use her fat for fat grafting? Will my body accept it?

Hi Martha, That is a great question and one that is often asked. You cannot use the fat from another person. If you are interested in fat transfer please come in for a consultation to find out more about how it works. Thank you, Lumen Laser Center

It is not possible to transfer fat from one person to another.  The fat is live tissue and will be rejected by your immune system as it is not your own.
