What is a Brazilian Bum Lift?
Fat is transferred from one part of the body (where there is excess fat) to the upper part of the bottom to give it a higher and more rounded appearance. For Brazilian bum lift cost see our FAQs below
You can expect a higher and more rounded bottom and if fat is taken from the waist it will give you an hour glass figure.
FAQ ABOUT Brazilian Bum Lift SURGERY
Below are some common FAQ’s about Brazilian Bum Lift cost and surgery
What is the price of Brazlian Bum Lift

What is a BBL?
BBL is a cosmetic surgery procedure that uses your own fat to increase the size or correct sagging and asymmetry in the buttocks. Fat is harvested from other areas of the body, typically the tummy, thighs and back then processed and transferred over to the buttocks. I do not use implants as I prefer the natural feel and permanent change I can achieve using your own natural fat.
Is a Brazilian Bum Lift right for me?
You need to be in good overall health to proceed with a BBL. The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and you need to be a non-smoker because the fat is very delicate and needs to develop a new blood supply. Any smoking will kill the fat and lead to a very poor result.
You also need to have enough of your own fat to donate so if you are a size 8 this is not the procedure for you.
How long does a BBL last?
The results are permanent but the unpredictable element is how much of the fat that is transferred remains. A good estimate is that approximately 60% of the fat will survive. I am very careful about how I harvest and process the fat and do not inject too much at one time as this means you will keep more of the transferred fat over the long term.
How much fat do I need to get a good result?
This very much depends on the result you want and what sort of frame you have. A very petite patient will only require a few hundred cc* of fat and will get a great result but a larger framed patient may need up to a 1000cc but this would need to be done in stages which is why a consultation and personal assessment is the only way I can determine if you are suitable for the procedure. *cc is the measurement of liquid used in medicine and stand for cubic centimetres. It is also used to measure the liquid volume in breast implants. It can be used interchangeably with ml (millilitre) for example, a medicine spoon typically holds 5ml of liquid which is equal to 5cc.
What is the recovery time after a BBL?
The fat that is transferred is very delicate and needs to develop a new healthy blood supply if it is to survive. Unfortunately, this means that you cannot squash the fat which means no sitting for 2 weeks after your operation. You should also wear a compression garment for at least 6 weeks post op and try to minimise exercise for the first 4 weeks apart from light stretching.
Can a BBL be reversed?
Yes, if there is a desire to go smaller then the fat can be removed easily with liposuction. this will incur extra cost and another visit to the operating theatre.
What happens if I gain weight or become pregnant after a BB
It is important to try to maintain a constant weight after your surgery. The transferred cells are still able to increase in size and they tend to behave like they did when they were on your stomach or hips so if you tend to readily gain weight in these areas and it is moved to your buttocks you could find that you now readily gain weight in this area.
What are the side effects after a BBL?
The most common side effect after a BBL is bruising, swelling, discomfort and sometimes small irregularities. A rare but serious side effect is called fat embolism and has been featured in the media. This occurs when Surgeons inject with sharp needles and into the muscle. I use only the best equipment and avoid injecting into the muscle.
