The Famous Butt Lift

Butt lift, Brazilian Butt Lift, Butt implant, Butt augmentation, buttock augmentation


Buttock procedures are among some of my specialties, and as you may know, only a few plastic surgeons perform these procedures in North America.  It is while travelling and learning in Brazil that I discovered the power and significance of a nice, full and sexy buttock area.

Butt lift has been used in many different and confusing ways.  A buttock can be ‘lifted’ surgically with (1) fat grafting (so-called Brazilian butt lift), (2) with a buttock implant or (3) with removing excess of skin & fat and lifting and suspending the buttocks (the ‘true’ butt lift procedure, a sub-type of body lift), as often required after serious weight loss.  Auto-augmentation is often performed with the latter technique where some of the ‘to-be-discarded’ tissue is instead preserved and rotated to the appropriate region for volume and projection purposes.

Fat grafting alone to the buttock (Brazilian Butt Lift) is a great technique for smaller buttock augmentations.  It is a wonderful but delicate procedure that requires meticulous and gentle work from the surgeon. Some of the transferred fat will not survive.  It takes 3 months for the fat to be stable and for the patient to achieve her/his final surgical results.  Volume will fluctuate with weight loss and gain.

Since I work with many patients after their weight loss, it is very common to combine a true butt lift with buttock implants.

It is also very common to combine an implant with fat grafting when a patient wants to achieve more fullness and more curves.

I discuss other aspects of Toronto Buttock procedures in my other blogs!
