Breast Reduction

How long is the recovery period after Brazilian butt lift surgery in London?

You will need to stay in the hospital overnight after your buttock augmentation procedure, and you will be assessed by your surgeon before you leave.

There may be some mild discomfort after your liposuction and the fat injections, but it will be managed with simple pain relief.

You will need to wear a compression garment for a while after your buttock augmentation. It’s not a glamorous look, but the garment protects the parts of your body where fat cells were removed and ensures minimal scarring.

Your body will need to heal from both liposuction and the fat transfer procedure so your recovery period will take a few weeks.

Your surgeon will advise you when it is appropriate to return to normal activities and the gym.

Will I see my surgeon again after my Brazilian butt lift?

We take aftercare very seriously at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics in London.

We monitor the patient’s progress closely at follow-up appointments in the weeks and months after BBL surgery.

If any issues arise, we can resolve them quickly.

If you have any concerns between appointments, you can contact us at any time.

Are there any potential risks or complications with BBL surgery?

Every surgical treatment carries risks of pain, bleeding, bruising and infection.

In inexperienced hands, the Brazilian butt lift carries the additional risk of deep vein thrombosis which is a serious condition.

However, choosing a highly qualified and experienced surgeon like one of the plastic surgeons at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics will ensure that your aesthetic surgery is safe and that it has a positive outcome.

When will I see the results of my BBL procedure at the London clinic?

You will see a difference immediately, but it may take a few weeks for the newly transferred fat to settle down completely.

But when you are completely healed, you will be delighted with your more rounded shape.

How long do Brazilian butt lift results last?

The results of fat transfer can last for years but will vary between individuals.

Of course, your body shape may change over time with weight gain or loss, and this could have an impact on the shape of your buttock area.

If you maintain your healthy weight with a good diet and exercise, you should enjoy the results of your Brazilian butt lift for a good amount of time.

Will I have a perfect Brazilian butt after my procedure in London?

It is important to have realistic expectations of your buttock augmentation.

Depending on your body shape and size it may not be possible to create your ideal desirable shape in one procedure.

Fat survival after it is injected into your buttock area will not be 100% and not even the most skilled surgeon can predict your new buttock volume.

It can be dangerous to extract large volumes of fat cells in one liposuction session. The surgical team at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics will always put your safety first whilst also enhancing the beauty of your body.

Is fat transfer a way to reduce weight?

Liposuction can’t be used to achieve significant weight loss but will ‘spot reduce’ stubborn pockets of fat on the body.

However, the liposuction that is used in fat transfer procedures will allow your surgeon to perform body contouring. If unwanted fat is removed from the stomach area, for example, then you will feel slimmer.

Who would be the ideal candidate for a Brazilian butt lift procedure?

An ideal candidate is a person of a healthy weight who wants to achieve a more hourglass figure. You will also need an area with sufficient body fat to provide fat cells for the BBL procedure.

Patients need to be in good general health before any operation. Our surgeons strongly advise all patients to give up smoking for at least a month before surgery.

The surgical team will give you a health assessment including taking a medical history and blood tests to ensure that you are fit enough for buttock augmentation.

Other uses of fat transfer in London

The Brazilian butt lift is not the only fat grafting procedure offered at Zenith Cosmetic Clinics London.

Fat transfer can also be used to restore volume to the face during a facelift or breast augmentation without using silicone implants.

There are advantages to using autologous fat, that is, your own body fat. There is no danger of rejection or leakage, unlike with the silicone implants used during butt implant surgery, as you are not introducing foreign material into your body.
