Results can be seen immediately, however true results are seen at around the 6 week mark after all swelling has subsided.
*Results may vary from patient to patient. **All photos are of patients from Cosmos Aesthetics, and all ‘after’ images are taken 6 weeks post operation.
Creating a more muscular, squarer behind using fat from trouble areas
In a male BBL, fat is taken from trouble areas such as your abdomen, thighs or back before going through a purification and cleaning process. The healthy fat cells are then injected into your buttocks, resulting in a more muscular, squarer behind. The time will vary depending on the amount of fat required and extracted via liposuction. Both procedures can be performed on the same day.
The best candidate for a Male Buttock Enhancement arethose who need shape and definition to their behind, and have reserves of fat elsewhere on their body, namely the abdomen, thighs or back. Complaints such as “my butt is too flat” or “I want a more prominent bottom”, along with realistic expectations of results, good reasons for this procedure
The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic or conscious sedation, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure. Pain relief is provided post operatively to minimise any discomfort after surgery.
On average, we inject 800 – 1,000 mls in each buttock cheek. In some cases, we may inject upwards of 1 litre per cheek.
Over 4,000 butt lift surgeries performed and counting!
Cosmos Aesthetics first performed the the Brazilian Butt Lift in 2010 and opened it to male patients in 2016.
Consultation and subsequent procedure takes place at one of our dedicated clinics in Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide or Gold Coast.
We also treat many interstate and overseas patients each year at Cosmos Aesthetics. Therefore, we have set procedures in place for those travelling to our clinics for treatment. For travelling patients please send us images of the areas you wish to have treated, which Cosmos Aesthetics you’d like treatment at, and where you’re located in the description so our staff can include all the appropriate information for travelling patients as part of your personalised quote.

Recovery generally takes around 5 – 7 days. The doctor generally injects slightly more than what is needed as not all of the fat will be taken in by your body. As a result, your initial reaction may be that your rear end looks swollen or bigger than expected; but this will subside slighting at the final results.
Generally, over 80% of the injected fat cells survive. A Buttock Augmentation/ Lift will require you to wear a compression garment for 3 weeks full time, and then 3 weeks part time. For 2 weeks following the procedure, you will be required to avoid sitting on your bottom (you can sit forward on your thighs) or placing pressure on the area for prolonged periods.
You will need to stay on antibiotics for 10 days after the procedure. You will also be required to attend the clinic for daily post operative massages for the first week. It is also very important to note that post the operation, you will experience some swelling and bruising at the operation site.
Watch Dr Ajaka and RN Alison explain the process and what to expect below:
How much of the fat will survive the transfer process?
It is worth noting that with traditional Liposuction techniques, less than 50% of the fat extracted will survive the transfer process to the buttock. At Cosmos Aesthetics, we use Vaser Liposuction, which is a gentler approach of removal. The survival rate of the fat using these techniques is greater than 80%.1
Can I use someone else’s fat?
No, this can increase the risk of infection and rejection of the fat by your body.
I don’t have much fat elsewhere on my body. Can I still get the procedure done?
There are options available for patients who do not carry a lot of excess fat. The first is to gain weight, using a healthy approach, until there is enough fat that can be removed. The second is to be referred to a doctor for buttock implants. However, fat injections provide the most natural results and a carry very low risk of infection.
Where exactly is the fat injected?
We inject fat under the skin in the subcutaneous fat to achieve projection – giving a muscular “bubble butt” at the back.
We also remove fat from the love handles to give a straight side profile compared to the S-shape side profile of a woman.
What areas of the body can fat be extracted from?
Essentially, fat can be extracted from anywhere on the body that it appears. Typical places that extraction occurs include the abdomen, the thighs and the back. The upper arms, hips and chest are also options. Fat is ideally removed from the love handles and lower back as this gives an overall chiselled look. This precise extraction will help accentuate the shape of the buttock to give a stronger, muscular aesthetic.
