Brazilian butt lifts and butt implants are among some of my specialties in Toronto. 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.
How are butts lifted surgically?
Butt lift has been used in many different and confusing ways. A buttock can be ‘lifted’ surgically with:
- Fat grafting (as with the Brazilian butt lift)
- Buttock implants
- 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.
Who is a good candidate for Brazilian butt lift?
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.
How long does it take for Brazilian butt lift results to be visible?
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.
Who is a good candidate for a butt lift with implants?
Since I work with many patients after their weight loss, it is very common to combine a true butt lift with buttock implants. I answer some other common buttock augmentation questions in this related blog post.
It is also very common to combine an implant with fat grafting when a patient wants to achieve more fullness and more curves. You can see some of my patients’ excellent results by viewing these before-and-after photos.
