A Guide To

Surgery Process Guide to Buttock Fat Transfer

“The results are permanent, as long as you keep your weight stable; however the implanted fat will change and evolve naturally as your body ages.” – theprivateclinic.co.uk 

Similar to other fat transplant procedures, the buttock fat transfer involves taking surplus fat from an area such as the thighs or abdomen, and injecting this into areas of the buttock that require volume. The buttock appears higher and more rounded. 


Your surgeon will administer a local anaesthetic to the area of which the fat is being removed from.


The fat is removed and filtered; separating the healthy and unhealthy fatty cells. 


The healthy fat cells are injected into the buttocks, usually in the saddle bags, to make the buttocks appear rounded. You will be given a local anaesthetic before the fat is injected. 

Complications / Negligence Signs

The majority of patients will feel discomfort in the area around their buttocks for 1-3 days, and a dull ache can be prevalent up to four weeks later – seek medical advice if this persists.  


Swelling and bruising of the buttocks.

Surgical Risks

Local anaesthetic is usually very safe, although it does have certain serious associated risks attached to it, including;


Excessive bleeding

Nerve Injury


Ischemic necrosis (a restriction to the blood cells, causing a group of cells to die).
