The Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL) is a procedure in which fat is taken from another part of the body, then injected into the buttocks. However, surgeons today warn it has the highest death rate (thought to be as high as 1 in 3,000 operations)[2] of all cosmetic surgery procedures, due to the risk of injecting fat into large veins that can travel to the heart or brain and cause severe illness and death.

Further information



Mild discomfort, swelling and bruising can occur.

Some irregularity may occur at the site of fat harvest requiring additional treatment(s), such as Velashape or additional fat sculpting.

Infection is rare (<0.1%) following fat transfer to the buttocks. A course of antibiotics will be given at the time of your treatment.

Some altered sensation around the treatment area and the site of the fat harvest is common and is expected to resolve in 6 – 8 weeks.
