So what is this term "reverse liposuction" that is being tossed around? Is it some type of new technology?

"Reverse liposuction" is an old concept with a new title. It is simply the opposite of removing fat from the body. "Reverse liposuction" entails injecting fat into body areas where people want enhancement - breasts, buttocks, cheeks, lips, and the back of the hands. You may have heard of it before. It is also known as "fat transfer" or "fat grafting." It's gaining more and more popularity, especially for enhancing the breasts and buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift) without a need for implants.

So don't feel as if you've been left out of the loop if you're just learning about the phrase "reverse liposuction." You've likely heard of the concept in some other form!

That is exactly what so called “reverse liposuction” is. I prefer fat grafting for buttocks enhancement too, the Brazilian is the best way to go as far as I am concerned. Fat transfer, using one’s own purified body fat after liposuction, is one way to put volume back into the face. Now reconstructive breast surgery using the woman’s own fat is being performed after mastectomies too.
