Brazilian Butt Lifts

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure for patients looking to give their bodies prominent and sensual curves. This procedure is known under different names but basically consists of transferring fat from one or more areas of the body (stomach, flanks, saddlebags, thighs, lower back, etc.) and reinjecting it into the buttocks to increase size, shape, and roundness. A Brazilian butt lift can boost your buttocks and your confidence.

Brazilian Butt Lift

What is a Brazillian Butt Lift (BBL)

Genetics affects the shape of your buttocks, the frame of your body, and how fat is stored in different areas. These things can influence how the body looks, and in this case, the lower half. Exercise and a healthy diet can aid in maintaining an ideal weight and a healthy muscle tone. For many, the buttock may still look flat and lack shape. The buttocks are difficult muscles to build and shape through training and exercise.

Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL, uses the fat collected via liposuction from the thighs, back, abdomen, or hip areas which conversely contours the body and transfers the fat to enhance the form, shape, and size of the patients’ buttocks. The positive outcome of a BBL is there is less of a chance of rejection from the body because it is the patient’s fat cells that are injected back into the buttocks to deliver the curvaceous shape you are looking for.

There is still a misconception that this procedure just increases the size of the buttock, but most women or men requesting buttock augmentation are looking to improve the overall contour and shape of their bodies. A flat buttock can hinder certain styles of clothing, particularly bikinis for women, or jeans for men.

Brazilian Butt Lift Surgical Procedure

At GraceMed, we use fat grafting to improve the shape of the buttocks. The benefit of this procedure is that fat is harvested via liposuction from other areas such as the abdomen, arms, and legs and then processed and transferred to the buttocks. The use of fat grafting has changed butt implant surgery. Not only does this give you a nice contour to the buttocks area but it also helps to thin the waistline and contour the legs; improving the overall shape of the body. Like all Liposuction procedures, micro incisions are near the fat deposits. Generally, it is less pain and discomfort post-operatively than butt implants, and BBL requires minimal recovery time. Brazilian butt lift has become one of the most popular procedures performed for the past five years. The procedure is performed in the clinic under a general anesthetic and usually takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

Types of Butt Lifts

Brazilian Butt Lift – Surgical

Fat transfer to the buttocks area is called a Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL, it uses fat collected via liposuction from other areas of the body including thighs, back, abdomen, or hips, and transports the fat harvested to improve the shape, size, and projection of the buttocks.

Butt Implants

For patients who do not have enough fat for BLL, liposuction might not be eligible for fat grafting.  Butt implants require a multi-hour outpatient surgery where silicone implants are inserted into your buttocks. During your surgery, your surgeon will make an incision within the vertical butt crease and then slide silicone implants either into or above the gluteal muscle on each side. GraceMed does not perform this procedure in any of our clinics. 

Brazillian Butt Lift Candidates

In general, good candidates for a Brazillian Butt Lift include:

  • Patients that feel that their buttocks lack fullness, size, and shape due to genetics or age are looking to improve their volume and contour.
  • Patients who are in good general health for a surgical procedure can tolerate the anesthesia.
  • Patients who have realistic goals in mind that are attainable with the BBL procedure.
  • Patients who avoid smoking and consuming alcohol for the specified time period: Two weeks before and Two weeks after surgery.
  • Patients who do not have excessive, sagging skin around the region of your lower buttocks. If you do, you may still be a candidate if you undergo surgery to remove the skin before undergoing the BBL procedure.

Recovery Time for Brazilian Butt Lift (Buttock Augmentation) in Toronto

The recovery time is crucial to the success of fat grafting to the buttock. Fat requires a new blood supply for it to survive and any compression or shearing force during the recovery phase can cause these fragile blood vessels to break resulting in the fat not surviving. Full recovery generally takes approximately six weeks. The first ten days are the crucial phase as this new blood supply takes hold. During this time, you need to sleep on your stomach exclusively, and not put any pressure on your buttock. Heavy exercise at the gym etc. should be avoided as this can also lead to the fat not surviving. A compression garment is worn for approximately 6 weeks. After this time the fat fully adheres to the buttock and you can resume normal activities.
