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.
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.
Your Brazilian Butt Lift (SGL) procedure will be performed at our specialist day case clinic at 20 Calthorpe Road in Birmingham. We offer this surgery under Twilight Anaesthetic or TIVA for a faster recovery time and decreased side effects than general anaesthetic. You will be able to leave the clinic on the same day as your procedure. A consultant anaesthetist will administer your anaesthetic and be in the clinic throughout your recovery period to ensure you recover safely.
Using vaser liposuction, fat will be removed from other areas of the body. You can choose to have unwanted fat removed from anywhere on the body, adding to the sculpted look you desire.
Vaser liposuction is a much safer form of liposuction, using ultrasound technology. It results in less brusing, bleeding and swelling and can improve muscle definition and skin retraction.
Vaser selectively liquifies fat cells, preserving other important tissues such as nerves and blood vessels.
Fat is processed and cleaned prior to reinjection. Vaser liposuction increases the number of viable fat cells than can be transferred to the buttocks. The volume to be reinjected will be decided with your surgeon in your consultation.
The resulting fat is then re-injected into your buttocks. This will involve multiple injections with a specially designed blunt-tipped cannula. It is important to always inject the fat above the muscle and avoid the gluteal veins and the sciatic nerve.

At Kat & Co we carry out brazilian butt lifts (SGL) under Twilight Anaesthesia. Patients will be asleep and will not remember their procedure, but they will be able to breathe for themselves meaning that you will be able to go home the same day and recover in your own home or a nearby hotel.
Our consultants will typically recommend one to two weeks off work for BBL surgery patients. However, this may change depending on the individual and the extent of the reduction you are having.
