Where was your fat grafted from?

I'm having fat grafting done next week. I had fat grafting done about a year ago, and they used my upper abdomen and flanks as donor sites. Since then I've had a DIEP, so that took care of my lower abdomen.

Where else can they take fat from on this next surgery? I'm thinking maybe my back (love handle-ish area) and inner thighs? I don't have much fat to give on my hips, and probably wouldn't use my arms because they have enough going on with lymphedema. I'm a "healthy" BMI and have always stored fat in my abdomen, but that's gone now.
