What is Fat Transfer to the buttocks?
As we age, our buttocks can droop, sag and lose their pertness. Even extreme workouts may seem to be unable to bring the desired lift. Fat Transfer to the buttocks, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, can be a great solution to help uplift, contour and highlight your bottom. During the treatment, excess fat is removed from another part of the body using Vaser Liposuction – often patients choose for the fat to be taken from their stomach or thighs. It is then re-injected into the area of the derrière that requires attention, helping to improve the shape and appearance of the buttocks. This surgical solution can provide a more natural alternative to other bum lifting treatments such as implants. Our Fat Transfer to buttocks procedure can help to provide a pert, smoothed and lifted bottom with minimal post-treatment downtime.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.
What are the benefits of Fat Transfer to the buttocks?
Fat Transfer to the buttocks at EF MEDISPA is a one-day procedure that results in minimal recovery time. The treatment does not require general anaesthesia – conscious sedation is used, reducing the post-treatment downtime. There is no need for an overnight stay, but you will be required to return for review and aftercare appointments, which are designed bespoke to your own needs to maximise results. By utilising your own body fat, our Fat Transfer to the buttocks procedure performed in our London clinics reduces the chance of a reaction to foreign bodies, therefore offering a more natural solution to buttock enhancement. The added benefit of having excess fat removed from another part of the body appeals to many patients wanting to sculpt or tone other areas. The fat can be injected into very precise parts of the bottom, providing bespoke results for the individual patient.

Step by Step Fat Transfer to the buttocks
1 NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION
The process will begin with a NO OBLIGATION consultation with one of EF MEDISPA’s expert Treatment Coordinators, who are trained to discuss the procedure in fine detail with you and answer any queries you may have. Your full medical history will be taken and the Surgeon will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
2 MEET YOUR Practitioner
Should you decide to proceed with Fat Transfer to the buttocks you will meet one of our expert Doctors. Your full medical history will be taken and the Surgeon will assess whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. This meeting will be the perfect opportunity to have all of your medical questions answered by the Doctor and give you the chance to discuss desirable and expected results. The exact duration and downtime will be determined by your Doctor.
3 BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
If you decide to proceed, on the day of the surgery you will meet with the Doctor once again to discuss any last minute questions and provide your final consent before the procedure.
4 DURING THE PROCEDURE
Fat Transfer to the buttocks area involved removing fat from one area of your body via Vaser Liposuction which will then be injected into your buttocks via tiny injections. The Doctor will then create a small incision in one area and insert a small probe which transmits ultrasounds waves. These waves will help liquefy the fat which will eventually get gently sucked and removed from the selected area. The same fat will then be injected through small syringe into your buttocks adding volume and lifting your buttocks.
5 AFTER THE PROCEDURE
After the procedure, you will have the time to relax for a while in the recovery suite, the Nurses will fit you into a support garment and the Doctor will provide you with pain killers and antibiotics. Fat Transfer to the buttocks procedures carried out at EF MEDISPA are walk-in walk-out daytime surgeries, which do not require an overnight stay and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately. Before you leave the clinic you will be booked for a review appointment with the Doctor who will be there to assess your recovery and monitor your progress. At EF MEDISPA aftercare plays a significant part not only in fast recovery but also to ensure the best possible results. Therefore, after the procedure, we offer a bespoke package of aftercare treatments where the patient will have the chance to have ultrasound, manual and electro lymphatic massages and other treatments designed to help the healing process. You will be able to discuss the aftercare program during your first consultation with your Treatment Coordinator, as well as the Doctor and Nurses before and after the surgery.
Fat Transfer to the buttocks FAQs

Is it safe?
The highly experienced Surgeon and our EF MEDISPA team of Nurses and therapists, trained to the highest standards, will be with you in every step of the way to ensure the safety of the procedure and make you feel as comfortable as possible.
Are there any side effects?
There will be some swelling and bruising as a result of having Fat Transfer to the buttocks. A full description and assessment of risks specific to your procedure and general risk associated with surgery will be discussed during the consultation with your Surgeon prior to the procedure.
Will my results last?
When the buttocks are enhanced through Fat Transfer some of the fat will be metabolised by the body so not all of the fat will be retained, however what remains will be permanent as long as your weight is kept stable. Also, as your body ages the implanted fat will evolve and change naturally with your body.
