Females generally have more fat in the bum and hip area than men as a result of their hormonal differences. Feminising hormone therapy can help in the redistribution of fat in MtF transgender individuals. However, to achieve more volume and shape, buttock enhancement, also known as Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL) can be performed. It involves transferring fat from one or more areas of the body to the buttocks. It is ommonly combined with Body Feminisation to enhance the female form/shape.
Reason For Surgery
To enhance the size and shape of the buttock area to achieve a feminine curvaceous and lifted aesthetic appearance.
This result can improve self-confidence and boost self-esteem, allowing you to feel more comfortable in your female gender.

What happens at the consultation for Buttock Enhancement?

You may be required to undergo medical investigations such as blood tests, ECG or other, as medically advised by your surgeon.
How do I prepare for my surgery?
Once you have your consultations and your surgery is booked, you will have a pre-operative assessment with your nurse 2 weeks before surgery, during which any outstanding questions will be answered. Your preparation for surgery will be reviewed and information will be provided regarding medications, diet, and post operative care.
You will not need to stop your hormone therapy.
You must stop smoking a minimum of 2 weeks before your surgery and up to 12 weeks postoperatively.
What happens on the day of surgery?
On the day of your surgery you will attend the hospital where your surgery is taking place. You will be reassessed by your surgeon and your anaesthetist before going to the theatre. The hospital team will complete the necessary pre-operative health checks.
Following your surgery, you will be bed bound and closely monitored by the hospital medical team. They will assist you with anything you need. You will be tired and spend most of this time resting. You will be provided with something to eat when you are alert and slowly mobilised with assistance.
Once you are awake and mobile, you will be discharged from the hospital to your home. You must have a chaperone to bring you home and stay with you for a minimum of 24 hours.

What happens if there is a complication?
In the event of a complication you will be medically assessed as soon as possible by your surgeon or a qualified member of our nursing team.

I can see why Mary Burke gets so many outstanding reviews. After decades of mostly patronising treatment from medical professionals it was refreshing to have an adult conversation. When we had differences of opinion she listened and understood the aspects of my dysphoria which didn’t fit within the standard pattern and she challenged me on differences which were due to my misconceptions. She gave me exactly the straight-talking no-nonsense approach that I needed to make sure I understood every aspect of such a life-changing decision. All staff in the clinic treated me as an individual and were very understanding that not everyone who suffers from gender dysphoria experiences the same set of symptoms. I had been concerned that I’d have to jump through certain hoops which would’ve been impossible with my current physical disabilities (as the NHS often requires) but the LTC clearly prioritises patient care over box-ticking.
Dr. Popelyuk was especially understanding of my difficult health issues and complicated personal history. I doubt that I could’ve done this without his help and it would be impossible to praise him highly enough.
My waiting time was incredibly short. I still can’t quite believe how easy they made my transition. They’ve given me back my quality of life. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone.
