With over half a million procedures undertaken, you're in safe hands
A Brazilian Butt Lift (a 'BBL') is a procedure designed to augment or modify the appearance of the buttocks, through transfer of fat from another part of the body. This procedure was thrust into the limelight due to something that is being referred to by the media as 'The look just like their favourite celebrity family.
As grafted fat feels and behaves exactly like natural fat, taking on the characteristics of the area of the body that it is injected, BBL treatments are loved for their beautifully authentic finish.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
A Brazilian Butt Lift is an incredibly safe and straightforward way of adding volume and curve to a flat, unshapely or unproportioned derriere. Diet and bottom-targeted exercise can, unfortunately, only get you so far. Not only are BBL's minimally invasive, they also have the added benefit of removing unwanted fat from other areas of the body. But don't just take our word for it, see for yourself...
The Brazilian Butt Lift is the Robin Hood of cosmetic treatments. Stealing from the fat rich and depositing to the fat poor, BBLs serve as comprehensive two-in-one treatments, removing fat from where you don't want it and depositing it back where you do. It's a win-win.
BBLs are a fantastic alternative to buttock augmentations using implants, as not only do they look fantastically natural; they make use of 100% natural resources. That means that you can enjoy your brand new, fabulously curvaceous rear, whilst running absolutely zero risk of rejection or infection.
The BBL treatment creates a beautiful shapely profile that not only leaves your buttocks looking fuller and firmer, but more lifted with visibly improved symmetry and a significant reduction in cellulite. BBLs will even help to correct tissue deformities such as dimpling and indentation.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Whether you are looking for reshaping, resurfacing or general lift - Harley Street Skin surgeons can help you attain this areas fat cells whilst they are prepared for reinjection.
The reinjection process is also performed using a thin cannula, administered via very small incisions on each side of the buttock. This is so the reinjected fat can penetrate deep into the muscle fibres and reach a strong supply of blood. This gives the fat the best chance of survival. The more fat which survives the transfer, the fuller and firmer the result.
BBL procedures can: help to restore proportion to an unbalanced or top heavy frame, improve clothing fit, provide fullness and lift, correct dimpled flesh suffering from cellulite and sculpt the overall silhouette into a more shapely hourglass.
Due to the fat being harvested from another part of the body, BBL treatments also help to improve the look of the areas used to source the natural filler. In essence, you are able to redistribute fat by taking it from problem areas and repurposing it elsewhere.
BBL treatment costs begin at £4500. This will include your initial consultation, where the doctors will make note of any natural asymmetry with the intention to counter it during treatment, as well as both the local anaesthetic required for liposuction and the Butt Lift procedure itself.
Visible results from a BBL are both permanent and immediate. Of course, due to the nature of the fat graft and it being a naturally occurring filler, the body is always eager to reabsorb it. This means that after a fat graft, there is a 3 month window whereby the deposited fat may not survive and is reabsorbed by the body. This is typical of around 30-40%. The fat cells that survive beyond this 3 month period will have settled into their new permanent position. Harley Street Skin are, however, happy to report an extremely high survival rate of up to 80%.
The procedure can be improved even moreso if infused with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) - a component taken from the blood which is high in healing and regenerative properties. Using PRP during a Brazilian Butt Lift encourages the fat cells to survive, securing a more reliably plump finish.
The Brazilian Butt Lift can take anywhere from 2-5 hours to complete, averaging at around 3 and a half hours. This will generally be weighted more on the liposuction portion of the procedure, and can depend on which areas are being targeted for fat harvest, as well as how much is required for your desired result. The average amount of pure fat required, per cheek, for this procedure is between 250 and 350 cc's. This is equivalent to a weight of around 300-500 grams.
It will take around 3 months for the fat in the buttocks to stabilise, and up until this point the results cannot be gauged accurately. It is at 3 months that you will see the final, permanent result of your Brazilian Butt Lift.
As the BBL repurposes autologous fat (your body's own supply of fat cells), it means that - unlike most surgery - the treatment itself is fairly nontraumatic for the body. In fact, as BBLs only use what is naturally provided by the body, there is no threat of either rejection or allergic reaction. Even rates of infection for this method of fat transfer sit remarkably low at less than 0.01%.
You can however expect some altered sensation around the fat harvest sites, mild discomfort, some bruising and significant swelling. This is generally all expected to resolve itself by weeks 6 – 8.
The area will likely remain slightly swollen and sensitive for up to 8 weeks after treatment, but you will typically only feel discomfort for around 10-14 days. By day 14, most of the bruising will also have subsided.
You will also be required to wear a surgical garment on the areas that received liposuction for up to 6 weeks - both day and night for the first 3 weeks, and then only during the day for a further 3.
You are typically able to return to work after 7-10 days, but this can vary from patient to patient. Levels of discomfort will depend on both your frame and how much fat was taken during the harvesting process. In order for the fat to have the best chance of survival, you are also advised to avoid long periods of sitting for the first 4 weeks. If your job is particularly sedentary, you should factor this into your decision to return to work early.
