Fat Transfer to the Buttocks

Today, more and more women are seeking a shapely, round and firm butt. But unfortunately for most women, exercise and diet alone will not provide the results that they are looking for. That’s why a fat transfer to the buttocks is in high demand.
Using your own fat from another area of the body, surgeons are able to inject the fat above the muscle to give you a larger, more shapely buttocks.


Fat Transfer to Buttocks Versus Silicone Butt Implants
Prior to the fat transfer procedure, doctors were using silicone implants to reshape the buttocks. These implants had their share of risks and complications, and the results often didn’t look natural. But the fat transfer to buttocks surgery offers many benefits over silicone implants, including:
– A more natural appearance
– The fat transfer uses the patient’s own fatty deposits to reshape the buttocks, resulting in a more natural appearance.
– Less painful recovery
– The fat transfer is less painful than butt implant surgery and is the smart choice for patients worried about painful and long recoveries.
– Minimal scarring
– The fat transfer produces minimal scars; women are able to wear bikinis without showing any evidence of this cosmetic procedure.
– No implant-related complications
– Complications from silicone implants include infection, displacement, visibility of the implant, leakage, ruptures and hardening of the implant. These complications are avoided with the fat transfer. Once fully healed, there are no future complications you need to worry about.
–Rounder, larger buttocks
– The fat transfer to the buttocks allows doctors to create larger, fuller buttocks than with silicone implants while helping to slim down the areas where there was an excess of fat.


The key to being a good candidate for the fat transfer to the buttocks is to have an adequate amount of fat in other areas of your body. Your surgeon will remove excess fat from areas that may include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, hips, back or arms. This is the fat that will be removed via liposuction, purified and injected into the buttocks above the muscle. Without available fat, the surgeon will not be able to do the procedure.


The fat transfer to the buttocks is a day surgery, so you will be able to return home once the procedure has been completed. The procedure will take about four to six hours to complete.
The fat transfer to the buttocks is completed under a general anaesthetic, so you will not be awake throughout the procedure.
The surgery will be completed in two stages.
Stage one
Liposuction is undertaken from areas of the body where there are excess deposits of fat. This can include areas such as the thighs, abdomen or hips.  Prior to surgery, your surgeon will assess your body to determine which area the fat will be transferred from. 
This will require the surgeon to make several small incisions in order to insert the cannula into the body. The cannula will remove the fat, which is then processed and purified.
Stage two
This stage involves injected the removed fat into the patient’s buttocks. This will take numerous injections to complete. Once done, the surgeon will be able to sculpt the fat to ensure the buttocks is as large and round as possible.
You will be able to notice the results of the procedure immediately, however, there will be some swelling and you will notice the size will decrease as the healing process continues.
Note that London Lipo Institute injects the fat above the muscle, rather than into the muscle, which is often done with the Brazilian Butt Lift. Injecting above the muscle reduces the likelihood of any complications following the procedure. 


After the procedure, it is normal to experience bruising and swelling. This will decrease after a few weeks. You will be able to take pain medication during this period to help with any discomfort.
It is important to understand you will not be able to sit or sleep on your buttocks for the first few weeks following the surgery. Doing so can alter the appearance of the buttocks. Instead, when you are sitting you will need to place most of the weight on your thighs. You will also be given a compression garment which you will need to wear for six weeks. This will help to shape the buttocks, help speed up the healing and minimise fluid formation. You will need to visit the surgeon after your procedure and throughout the recovery period. This allows the surgeon to see how you are recovering, help you to achieve the best possible results.


Is any special preparation necessary before the surgery?

You should discuss your medications with your surgeon during your consolation. The doctor may have you stop taking certain medications prior to your procedure. Do not smoke for at least two weeks before your procedure, and two weeks after. Nicotine can compromise circulation and delay healing, as do many of the other chemicals found in cigarette smoke. Drink a lot of water in the days leading up to your surgery. 

What happens in the operating room?

First, you will be given an anaesthetic to make you relax and fall asleep. Next, the surgery takes place over 2-3 hours. There are two stages to the fat transfer to buttocks procedure. First, excess fat is extracted from areas of your body using liposuction. The fat is purified in the operating room and then injected into the buttocks. This helps to produce a rounder, fuller buttocks. Generally, the procedure takes about two hours from start to finish. 

What is the recovery process?

Patients should be aware that the buttocks will be very sensitive for approximately 10 days following the procedure, and you will not be able to sit on your bottom during this time. Following this period, the sensitivity should subside and you will be able to resume your normal activities. Your buttocks will appear larger immediately after surgery and the final results will show about 3 months after the surgery has taken place. 

Will I have scars?

One of the major benefits of the fat transfer to buttocks procedure is that there are no major incisions. That means minimal scarring. Patients can be assured that they will be able to wear bikinis and other revealing clothing without showing scars. 

Is a fat transfer the same as butt injections?

No. Butt injections refer to injecting various substances such as silicone, Biogel PMMA and others. Only fat that is liposuctioned from the patient’s OWN body is injected during the fat transfer to buttocks. Using anything else is extremely dangerous and illegal. 

Are there any risks?

As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are some risks involved. These risks include bleeding, infection, and collection of fluid under the skin, swelling and blood clots. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimise the risks associated with surgery. 

What is the difference between the fat transfer and a traditional butt lift?

In a traditional butt lift, the doctor removes excess or sagging skin that is due to weight loss, gravity or the ageing process. After making incisions, the skin over the buttocks is raised and tightened, making the buttocks look less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled. In the fat transfer, the patient’s own fat is injected into the buttocks, making them larger, rounder and shapelier. A fat transfer to the buttocks does not lift the butt, it reshapes it, thus it is not ideal for patients who need an actual lift of a saggy buttocks.
