Hi Debbie, thank you for the question.
Fat grafting has both advantages and disadvantages and one should be aware of them before deciding on a procedure. Fat has been used successfully in the legs to augment calves, ankles, and buttocks. One can expect a longevity of around 5 years bt the main disadvantage is that the fat graft may not take and the procedure would need to be repeated. I am completely unaware of someone specifically experienced to perform this procedure and your best approach would be to contact the SA Society of Plastic Surgeons: firstname.lastname@example.org and ask who has the most experience with these type of procedures.
