While it is possible for fat from arms to be removed and injected into buttocks, there typically is not enough fat in the arms alone for this procedure.

Yes, autologous (using your own fat) fat transfer from one area of the body to the other is a very common procedure used in Gluteal Augmentation. It is possible to use fat from the arms, however most Gluteal Augmentation procedures requires a substantial amount of fat to make a significant difference and there is usually not enough fat in the arms to provide enough fill.
