In our Latin culture, it is characteristic to see a woman with curves, which is why in recent years the demand for taking out excess fat of certain areas and putting it back where it is needed has been increasing. Fat injections or lipoinjections, can be done in many areas, for example in the buttocks, where it is called a Brazilian Butt Lift.

Buttock augmentation procedures are frequently performed. Other areas where a fat transfer can be done are for breast augmentation, to give volume and definition to the face, and even for filling the labia majora of the vagina. Also, a fat transfer can be a great ally when for reconstructive plastic surgery.
