What is a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)?
Overview Procedure Before/AfterFeesConsent Form Post-Operative Instructions Consultants
A Brazilian Butt Lift, commonly known as BBL, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the transfer of fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks. Only recently have UK surgeons been able to offer this treatment safely for women and men who want to achieve a curvier, hourglass figure. This modified procedure, which avoids injection of fat into the muscle for better safety, is also known as superficial gluteal lipofilling (SGL).
The procedure involves using liposuction to remove fat from areas of the body with excess fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and back. The harvested fat is then purified and processed before being re-injected into the buttocks to add volume, curve, and improve symmetry. Unlike buttock implants, BBL uses your own natural fat reserves to augment your buttocks, making it a safer and more natural way to achieve your desired look.
Why choose a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Brazilian Butt Lift (SGL), or 'fat transfer to the buttocks' or 'buttock fat transfer' is one of our most popular procedures at Kat & Co. We have even been featured in Tatler magazine as a leading specialist in BBL surgery. Many women want a curvier, fuller figure, but don't want to worry about the risks associated with implants. At Kat & Co we use minimally invasive vaser liposuction to extract fat, resulting in less pain, bruising and bleeding, and better, smoother results with greater skin contraction. Unwanted fat can be removed from other areas of the body including the tummy, flanks or lower back via Vaser liposuction, which itself makes the buttocks appear more prominent, before the fat is filtered, washed and reinjected beneath the skin, and never into the muscle.
Our expert BBL surgeons are highly experienced and properly trained at performing the Brazilian Butt Lift safely and with amazing results.
What are the benefits of BBL Surgery?
- Natural Looking Results - The fat that is transferred during a BBL looks and behaves exactly like natural fat, taking on the characteristics of the area of the body that it is injected. As a result, BBL treatments are loved for their beautifully authentic finish.
- Reduced Risk of Infection or Rejection - Since the fat used in a BBL procedure comes from your own body, there is minimal risk of rejection or infection. This makes BBL a safer option when compared to implants.
- Removal of Unwanted Fat - During the BBL procedure, unwanted fat is removed from areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and back. This means you can achieve a more toned and sculpted body while simultaneously augmenting your buttocks.
