Council warns over backstreet butt lifts in Manchester hotel rooms

An urgent warning has been issued to people seeking cosmetic procedures including Brazilian butt lifts and breast augmentation – amid fears unregulated surgery is taking place in local hotel rooms.

Manchester Council issued the warning on Wednesday, saying procedures “may be taking place this week in Manchester in non-clinical settings”.

Medical experts have cited the risk of infection in non-clinical settings, where it can be difficult to prevent contamination.

A statement urged people who are only notified of their surgery’s location shortly before treatment to contact the environmental health department at the council.

“The council has been made aware that certain cosmetic procedures – specifically Filler Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) [or] breast augmentation – may be taking place this week in Manchester in non-clinical settings, said the statement, as reported by The Local Democracy Reporting Service.

“If you are offered treatments in other types of non-clinical premises, such as hotel rooms, or you book a treatment and don’t receive the location where the treatment will be carried out until shortly beforehand, we would urge you to contact Manchester City Council environmental health on 0161 234 5004 – so the council can ensure that any procedures will be carried out in accordance with the required health and safety and infection control procedures.”

A Brazilian Butt Lift typically involves doctors transferring fat from a patient’s belly, hips, lower back, or thighs to their buttocks. It is sometimes called gluteal fat grafting, buttock augmentation with fat grafting, and safe subcutaneous buttock augmentation (SSBA).

Breast augmentation, colloquially known as a ‘boob job’, typically involves enhancing the shape of a patient’s breasts.
