Ottawa Plastic Surgery Brazilian Butt Lifts

Is a Brazilian butt lift right for you? Here’s why this innovative procedure can be effective in improving the volume, shape, and size of your buttocks. Feel like your best self and give yourself the lift you deserve. 

What is a Brazilian butt lift (BBL)?

A Brazilian butt lift augments the shape and size of the buttocks without the use of implants or surgical procedures. How does it work? During a Brazilian butt lift, liposuction is used to remove fat from other parts of the body – like the thighs, abdomen or lower back – which is then carefully injected into the buttocks. First, an incision is made at the “harvest site” or location where the fat is to be removed. A tube (or cannula) is inserted into the site to distribute fluid into your fat so it can be removed. After the fat is removed, it is purified to reduce extraneous fluid or damaged fat cells. Once purified, it is injected into its new location.

Why are Brazilian butt lifts so popular?

While shapely curves have always been desirable for many women, these days a great butt with a full shape is especially celebrated. Many of our patients come in asking for more fullness and a lifted, more perky appearance for their buttocks. This procedure allows a skilled surgeon to remove fat from “problem areas” like love handles, and redistribute it to an area where you appreciate extra volume – essentially sculpting the body to suit your preferences. 

How long does a Brazilian butt lift last?

The results of a Brazilian butt lift can be long-lasting. Inevitably, some of the fat will be reabsorbed by the body over time. However, the thin stream technique that our surgeons use maximizes blood flow to the newly injected fat, making the body more likely to assimilate it and retain the additional volume.

What else should I know?

It’s essential that your Brazilian butt lift is performed by a board-certified surgeon who is experienced and qualified. Always investigate the qualifications of your surgeon and prepare questions to ask during your consultation. At Ottawa Plastic Surgery, our surgeons Dr. Silverman and Dr. Boyd have an aesthetic accuracy, an eye for detail, and a priority for comfort and safety honed through years of experience performing body contouring procedures. 

The cost of a Brazilian butt lift at Ottawa Plastic Surgery starts at $9,500 plus hospital/anesthesia fees.
