What is The Cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The Brazilian buttock lift cost in Toronto is dependent on how much fat needs to be grafted, as well as how many donor sites will be involved in the procedure. Our Brazilian butt lift starts at $14,999.

Recovery Period Following a Brazilian Butt Lift?

It will take between 1-2 weeks for swelling and soreness to subside following a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Oral medication can be used to manage any initial discomfort.

How Long Does it Take to Perform a Brazilian Butt Lift?

The length of a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure depends on the breadth of the cosmetic work and the number and size of donor sites. However, patients can typically expect it to take approximately 3-5 hours to perform.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular cosmetic procedure that lifts, volumizes, and contours the buttocks.

Also known as butt augmentation and gluteoplasty, the procedure can enhance the shape and size of a buttock that is small or flat from hereditary factors. In addition, the procedure can reverse the signs of aging that can lead to sagging, lumpy, and flat buttocks. When exercise routines and squats aren’t giving you the desired look, a Brazilian Butt Lift can instantly create a shapelier, perkier, and rounder backside.

The procedure is performed by harvesting fat from unwanted body areas (abdomen, waist, thighs etc.) and then preparing the fat cells into a transplantable form and finally expertly transferring it to the buttocks. The whole process is performed under local anesthesia with small harvest and injection needles. By using fat from other areas that complement the buttocks, the procedure creates an overall body shape enhancement and a well-rounded body figure.

Am I a Good Candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift?

A good candidate for Brazilian Butt Lift is one who would like to improve the shape of their buttocks while contouring areas of the body that serve as the donor sites. Candidates should be in good mental and physical health, as well as have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the procedure. In addition, candidates should have enough donor fat to be transplanted to the area.

Brazilian Butt Lift Benefits

Boost Self-Confidence

At its core, a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is designed to enhance body positivity and self-worth by creating a shapelier figure that patients can be proud of. 

Refined Buttocks

Following a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, patients will enjoy a shapelier backside that fits well with their body profile and looks more athletic and youthful.

Increased Volume

The Brazilian Butt Lift adds volume to the buttocks while avoiding the invasiveness and lengthy recovery time of actual buttock implants.

Invisible Issues

After a Brazilian Butt Lift, cellulite on the buttock will be less apparent and visible.

Brazilian Butt Lift Risks & Complications

Brazilian Butt Lifts, like every procedure, come with a small chance of potential complications. Selecting a highly experienced, trusted BBL surgeon is paramount to minimizing the likelihood of complications. The team at TPS has years of experience performing butt lifts. Significant complications are uncommon and, in the rare event they occur, are expertly managed.

  • Bleeding: In rare instances, blood clots may form under the skin and require drainage. 
  • Clumping: If not properly prepared by an experienced surgeon, transferred fat may be uneven or clumped.
  • Infections: While this risk is very rare, every precaution is taken to ensure a smooth procedure and preventative antibiotics are given.
  • Change in Sensation: Some numbness and tingling of the fat extraction area should only be temporary.

Buttock and Body Fat Grafting for Men in Toronto

A fat transfer, also known as fat grafting and fat injection, is an increasingly common cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that entails harvesting excess fat from an unwanted body area (such as the “love handles” or “spare tire”) and transferring it to a zone that the patient would like to enhance. Not only does the procedure improve the contouring of the original fatty areas, but it also adds volume to the desired zones. Following the procedure, patients can expect a shapelier body that dramatically improves their self-worth and confidence.

Fat grafting boasts a number of advantages. For one, it is cost-efficient, as long-lasting results can be achieved for just $11,999. In addition, given the scope and extent of the surgery, the procedure boasts a short recovery period of only 1-2 weeks. It is worth noting that, due to the exceptional talent and comprehensive experience of the Toronto Plastic Surgeons, fat grafting procedures are considered to be low-risk and safe.

While the outcome of a fat grafting procedure is similar for both men and women, the motivations behind the surgery tend to vary according to the sexes. Whereas women might undergo a fat grafting procedure to enhance their feminine attributes, men tend to use the surgery to add definition to their masculine shape. For men, the procedure is often used to give a youthful, masculine boost to the shoulders, pectoral area, and buttocks.

With a fat grafting procedure involving the buttocks, the results tend to vary due to the aesthetic and anatomical differences between the male and female buttocks. Women typically desire a softer and bubble-like behind while men generally want to enhance the volume and firmness of their backside. During a male buttocks fat grafting procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons take extra care to avoid injecting too much fat in order to maintain a more muscular shape.

The fat grafting and fat transplantation to the buttocks takes approximately 2 hours. Usually, one, two, or three body zones are selected for taking the fat, depending upon the amount of fat in those zones. The harvest takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour.

Butt Lift for Men in Toronto

The goal of a male buttocks augmentation is to restore the square, muscular shape of the buttocks. Because of these aesthetic goals, the intentions differ from those of female buttocks augmentation.

Women who choose to get a BBL surgery in Toronto often want an improved hourglass figure, while men are seeking a square, rounder, fit look. Women want a softer, rounder behind, while men are looking for a stronger, more rigid appearance.

Men interested in receiving a butt lift must visit Dr. Bell’s office first for a consultation. The discussion allows the doctor and the patient to understand the expectations, goals, and realities, ensuring the best possible outcome. Dr. Bell has dedicated his 25 years of practice to cosmetic plastic surgery of the face and body. Dr. Bell served as the head of the University of Toronto Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Training program for over 15 years and was the president of the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

The cost of the Brazilian Butt Lift starts from $14,999 and up. The price is dependent on the number of liposuction sites required. The surgery is considered elective and will not be covered by insurance.

The fat grafting and fat transplantation to the buttocks takes approximately 2 hours. Usually, one, two, or three body zones are selected for taking the fat, depending upon the amount of fat in those zones—and the harvest takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour.

The donor site time will be extended if patients also want post-harvest liposuction contouring to be performed on those sites.

After their Brazilian Butt Lift, men should expect a shapelier buttock with added volume and a more toned look. Patients often come in for a second procedure twelve months following their first surgery to account for the lost fat grafts. A lot of patients love that first initial look and want to keep that look going!

Starting around the 12th week, a series of non-invasive body contouring treatments ensure optimal skin tightening and body contouring results. Special technology that builds the buttocks muscle is also deployed.

Following surgery, patients can expect to be sore and stiff for 1-2 weeks. Most patients can return to normal activities of daily living the following day. Care should be taken not to sit or lie directly on the buttocks.

Evolve Tone, Coolsculpting, and EMSculpt are all energy-based devices that can be used to improve the shape and contour of the buttocks.

How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure begins with local anesthesia being gently inserted into the fat donor sites, and the buttock to numb and expand the fat cells.

Fat is removed from the targeted donor area(s) using the ultrasound energy and then stored in a canister. To ensure an excellent body contour in the extraction area, Dr. Bell or Dr. Mulholland shape the area where the fat has been removed. Once the extracted fat has been prepared, the final step is to inject it into the buttocks to enhance volume and shape.

Preparing for a Brazilian Butt Lift

Prior to your procedure, The Toronto Plastic Surgery team will advise you to follow certain steps to shorten the recovery period and lessen the chance of any complications:

  • Quit smoking at least 2 weeks before surgery.
  • No alcohol 1 week prior and after.
  • Maintain a healthy diet.
  • Any medication needs to be reviewed by the surgeon.
  • Do not eat or drink anything 8 hours before surgery.
  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Our surgeons will provide additional guidelines during your initial consultation. For optimal results, the guidelines must be followed.

What to Expect Post Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

Immediately after the surgery, patients will experience some swelling, which will be contained by a compression garment. Despite the swelling, the added volume and projection of the buttocks will be apparent right away.

The Toronto Plastic Surgery team provides all patients with a comprehensive postoperative care regime to be followed in the days and weeks following the procedure.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Day 3: After a couple days of rest, most patients can return to performing the normal activities of daily living.

Day 10-14: Postoperative soreness and stiffness will be completely gone.

Week 6: The compression garment can be removed.

Month2 : Normal sitting activity for extended periods of time can be resumed.

Month 6: Final results are now more visible as residual swelling has subsided and the area is fully healed. 

Month 12: Some patients choose to return for a second procedure to account for the lost fat grafts.

Brazlian Butt Lift FAQ

Will All the Fat Grafts Transplanted Survive?

No. On average 50-70% of the fat cells transplanted to the buttock will survive. Our surgeons will slightly over graft, adding additional volume, knowing that some cells will not survive. Experience and gentle technique optimize the outcomes.

Is Getting a Brazilian Butt Lift Painful?

The use of local anesthesia means that the Brazilian buttock lift procedure itself will not be felt during the actual procedure.  Some swelling and soreness are to be expected following the procedure, but there is no extreme or long-term pain – especially when using an experienced and reputable cosmetic practice.

How Long Do the Results Last?

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is a permanent procedure, in that the fat that survives will last a long time until you enter the fat catabolism years, wherein fatty tissue tends to disappear. Because fat is used to boost the size of the buttocks, the area will change as it responds to the natural aging process.  By maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight, the results of your Brazilian Butt Lift will last decades.

Should I Get a Brazilian Butt Lift or Buttock Implants?

When it comes to improving the shape and size of the buttocks, patients can choose between the Brazilian Butt Lift and buttock implants. Silicone butt implants do enhance the shape of the buttocks. However, this approach is more invasive than a Brazilian Butt Lift, requiring a much larger incision.

Will I Be Able to Exercise Soon After the Procedure?

No. Patients will need to allow some rest time to ensure the best results and no complications arise. Patients should expect to wait at least 6 weeks before resuming physical exercise.
