At SpaMedica, the cost of a Brazilian butt lift typically starts at $11,999 and up, depending upon the number of donor sites required.
However, please note that the price is dependent on how much fat must be grafted during the procedure and the number of donor sites required.
Generally, it takes approximately 1-2 weeks for swelling and soreness to subside following the procedure. During that time, care should be taken so as to not sit or lie directly on the buttocks. Also, it is worth noting that oral medication can be used to easily manage initial discomfort.
The length of the procedure depends on the breadth of the cosmetic work and the number of donor sites. However, on average, a Brazilian butt lift procedure takes approximately 2 hours to perform.
Sometimes, squats just aren’t enough to give you the desirable posterior you’ve always wanted. When that happens, it’s time to consider a Brazilian butt lift, which produces a shapelier and more voluminous backside through liposuction and fat transplantation. During the procedure, fat is harvested through liposuction from unwanted areas (such as the abdomen, hips, and outer thighs) and transplanted to the buttocks. By relocating fat from less desirable areas to the buttocks, the procedure creates a rounded, more athletic posterior with a shapely waist designed to complement the body’s figure.
There is no particular age restriction for a Brazilian butt lift procedure, and there is no specific trait that defines a “good” candidate. Fundamentally, good candidates are patients who would like to have shapelier buttocks, have realistic expectations and who have enough donor fat to be transplanted to the area.
● Proper Physical Health: Good health and a lack of serious medical conditions are vital for a proper recovery following a Brazilian butt lift procedure.
● Logical Expectations: As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, good candidates have realistic expectations concerning the risks and benefits of the surgery.
Like all procedures, a Brazilian butt lift comes with the risk of potential complications. Dr. Mulholland has been performing Brazilian butt lifts for over 20 years and, after this many Brazilian butt lifts, the risk of a significant complication is extremely low. Although Dr. Mulholland has not seen most of the risks listed below, these Brazilian butt lift risks have been reported:
Led by the incomparable Dr. Mulholland, the skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeons at SpaMedica combine technical proficiency and unparalleled precision with an individualized approach that puts the patient first. By using advanced plastic surgery techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, the SpaMedica team is capable of producing incredible results while also reducing the risk of complications.
Evolve TRIM, TITE, Coolsculpting, EMSculpt are all energy based devices that can be used to improve the shape and contour of the buttocks.
At SpaMedica, a Brazilian butt lift procedure is performed under local anesthesia that is gently inserted into the fat. This anesthesia numbs and expands the fat cells, exposing them to ultrasound energy.
During the surgery, fat is removed from a donor area using the ultrasound energy, and later stored in a canister. Then, Dr. Mulholland or Dr. Bell shapes the area where the fat has been removed to ensure an excellent body contour. Finally, the fat stored in the canister is prepared and injected into the buttocks to enhance volume and shape.
Prior to your procedure, Dr. Mulholland and his team will review your expectations, medications and medical history. Based on the scope of the surgery, SpaMedica doctors may recommend that you stop taking certain medications before the surgery. It is also recommended that you consume a healthy diet and drink plenty of liquids before your surgery.
Please note that, after the surgery, you will be impaired from the anesthesia and thus unable to drive. While the procedure does not generally result in pain, there will be some swelling, which will be contained by a compression garment.
Following your procedure, Dr. Mulholland and his team in Toronto will recommend a comprehensive postoperative care regime. This regime will include instructions about the importance of avoiding physical activity and abstaining from alcohol and smoking.
After the Surgery: Despite the swelling, the results of the surgery will be apparent right away. Patients can expect a shapelier posterior with added volume and projection.
Day 1: Most patients can return to performing the normal activities of daily living. However, care should be taken so as to avoid sitting or lying directly on the buttocks.
Week 2: Soreness and stiffness subside completely.
Week 6: Subtle swelling subsides completely. In addition, compression garments can be removed.
Month 2: Patients can sit directly on their buttocks for extended periods of time.
Month 12: Patients often come in for a second procedure to account for the lost fat grafts.
Liposuction, breast augmentation and a tummy tuck are often performed at the same time as buttock fat grafting.
At SpaMedica, the actual Brazilian butt lift will not be felt due to the local anesthesia that will be inserted into the fat. While there may be swelling and discomfort afterwards, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. In fact, patients often compare the postoperative discomfort to a bruise.
Some patients opt to use silicone butt implants to enhance the shape of their posterior. However, it is important to note that this procedure is more invasive than a Brazilian butt lift, as it requires a much larger incision.
It is recommended that patients wait at least 6 weeks before resuming physical exercise.
