A Brazilian butt lift or BBL in London could give you the hourglass figure of your dreams.
At Zenith Cosmetic Clinics our skilled surgeons perform Brazilian butt lift surgery using fat transfer: removing fat from areas like the stomach and using it to create a more rounded shape elsewhere.
This method of butt augmentation can give you the shape and size you want using your own body fat cells rather than buttock implants. And you’ll get a flatter stomach into the bargain.

Your surgeon will remove fat cells from your body using surgical liposuction.
Many people have excess fat around the abdomen and the sides of the torso. There is often sufficient fat in these areas for them to act as donor sites for a Brazilian butt lift.
The fat cells are removed using simple rather than assisted liposuction as the donor fat may be damaged if extraction methods like vibration area are used. Still, the procedure will be performed under a general anaesthetic.
Your surgeon will then transfer the harvested fat into your buttocks through individual small incisions using an ultrasound-guided fat injection.
The fat transfer will create more volume in the buttock area and help you to achieve your preferred body shape.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Prices for fat transfer to buttock start from £3990 in London but the total cost of your procedure will be confirmed at your initial consultation at our clinic in Harley Street.
We know that affording aesthetic surgery can be challenging so we offer financing options to make it easier for our patients.
