The problem: Having a shapely bottom can make a huge difference to the overall shape of your body. Round, high buttocks can make the waist and thighs look smaller and make the rest of the torso look more proportioned. The problem for most people is that the buttocks are a difficult part of the body to shape through exercise alone, particularly if yours are naturally flat.
The treatment: If you have always wanted more defined buttocks but don’t want to risk painful surgery, then you’ve come to the right place. At The Private Clinic we can help you get the body you want without major surgery or implants. Fat transfer with liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that reshapes the lower back and saddle bags, to make the bottom look more shapely and higher. The fat is then transferred to the bottom under local anaesthetic, for that rounded look.
Here are just some of the advantages of Fat Transfer over traditional surgery:
- Fat Transfer is a minimally-invasive procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic as opposed to general anaesthetic
- It is a walk-in walk-out procedure, so no hospital stay
- Results are more natural looking
- Considerably less pain and minimal risk of scarring
- No lengthy times off work or away from activities
The results: Flat or shapeless bottoms look rounder, plumper and firmer.
Downtime: Downtime is minimal. However because there may be some bruising and swelling, it is best to wait one to two weeks before you hit the gym or do any rigorous physical activity.

You will see results straight away, however results will improve as the implanted fat becomes a part of your buttocks during the months after treatment.
Results are permanent, as long as you keep your weight stable; however the implanted fat will change and evolve naturally as your body ages.
Most patients will experience discomfort around the treated area for 1-3 days and may also notice a dull ache for a further 1-4 weeks. You may also notice some swelling and bruising. Possible complications include the risks outlined with the prescribed medications and the risks associated with any surgical procedure.
Our focus is on patient safety. Full details of possible complications will be highlighted and fully explained at consultation stage.
A small waterproof dressing to the injection site on your buttovks will be applied, which you will need to wear for ten days. We will also prescribe a course of antibiotics to help reduce the chances of infection. For the areas treated with liposuction you will need to wear a compression garment for three weeks and avoid strenuous exercise whilst wearing it.
