At SpaMedica, the cost of a Brazilian butt lift typically starts at $14,999, depending upon the number of donor sites required. If you would like to combine your BBL with other treatments, you’ll be looking at a higher price. Additionally, the amount of zones treated factors into the cost.
“Zones” typically refers to areas outside of the buttocks that are also treated, lifted, and contoured during your BBL treatment. For 4 zones, your BBL will start at $19,999, and the price will start at $21,999 for 5 zones and $25,999 for 6 zones.
Please note that the price is dependent on how much fat must be grafted during the procedure and the number of donor sites required.
The length of this body contouring procedure depends on the breadth of the cosmetic work and number of donor sites available. However, on average, a Brazilian butt lift procedure takes approximately 2 hours to perform.
Sometimes, squat exercises just aren’t enough to give you the desirable back side you’ve always wanted. When that happens, it’s time to consider a Brazilian butt lift, also referred to as a buttock enhancement or buttock augmentation, which is a two step procedure that produces a shapelier and more voluminous backside through liposuction and fat transplantation.
During the surgery, the desired amount of fat is removed from a donor area using the ultrasound energy, and later stored in a canister. Then, 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 back side to enhance volume and shape. However, it’s important to keep in mind that a BBL can often involve contouring and treating various areas of the body.
A fat transfer is made directly to your back side to add volume and lift the buttocks. If combined with liposuction of the lower back, you can achieve an ideal hourglass side profile.
To create those curves you’ve always dreamed of, then a fat transfer is made to the hips to fill in any dips, smoothing out your hourglass figure and creating a seamless, feminine transition from your waist to your thighs.
Between the hips and buttocks, Dr. Bell will meticulously blend the new curves of the hips and buttocks to ensure that everything looks natural and beautifully contoured.
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.
1 Day After Surgery: 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.
1 Week After Surgery: During this 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 any initial discomfort.
2 Weeks After Surgery: Soreness and stiffness will subside completely by this point.
6 Weeks After Surgery: Subtle swelling subsides completely. In addition, the compression garments can be removed.
2 Months After Surgery: Patients can sit directly on their buttocks for extended periods of time.
6 Months After Surgery: You will begin to see the final results of your BBL.
12 Months After Surgery: Patients often come in for a second procedure to account for the lost fat grafts.
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.
Good health and a lack of serious medical conditions are vital for a proper recovery following a Brazilian butt lift procedure. You should be at a steady weight, not seeking out to add volume through weight gain or lose some pounds with weight loss.
As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, good candidates have realistic expectations concerning the risks and benefits of the surgery.
At its core, a Brazilian butt lift procedure is designed to enhance body positivity & self-worth by creating a shapelier figure that patients can be proud of.
Following a Brazilian butt lift procedure, patients will enjoy a shapelier backside that fits well with their body profile.
The Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the buttocks while avoiding the invasiveness and lengthy recovery time of implants.
After a Brazilian butt lift, cellulite on the body will be less apparent and visible.
Like all procedures, a Brazilian butt lift comes with the risk of potential complications. Dr. Bell has been performing Brazilian butt lifts in Toronto for over 20 years and, after this many Brazilian butt lifts, the risk of a significant complication is extremely low. Although Dr. Bell has not seen most of the risks listed below, these Brazilian butt lift risks have been reported:
Bleeding: In rare instances, blood clots may form under the skin and require drainage. In these cases, the patient may require a blood transfusion.
Scarring: While scar formation is possible, it is rare due to the small size of the incisions used in liposuction surgery.
Infections: Although infections are very rare with respect to Brazilian butt lifts, Dr. Bell and his experienced team still take every precaution to ensure that the surgery is a smooth, seamless experience.
There are two main types of butt augmentation surgery: the Brazilian butt lift and buttock implants. Both procedures add volume to the buttocks, but they achieve this differently. A Brazilian butt lift uses fat grafting to enhance the shape of the buttocks. This involves removing fat from another area of the body (such as the thighs or abdomen) and injecting it into the buttocks.
This method can provide natural-looking results, but it is not suitable for everyone. For example, people who are not able to lose significant amounts of fat from other areas of their body may be better suited to buttock implants. This type of surgery involves placing artificial implants into the buttocks to create a fuller, rounder shape.
Buttock implants are made from various materials, such as silicone or saline, and can provide long-lasting results. However, this type of surgery is more invasive than a Brazilian butt lift and has a higher risk of complications. As with any type of cosmetic surgery, it is important to consult a certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options and choose the best procedure for you.
If you would like to remove excess fat from the abdominal area to achieve a toned yet feminine hourglass contour, a tummy tuck or liposuction may be an option once you have fully healed after your BBL treatment. However, we do not recommend combining a tummy tuck with your BBL treatment – it is best to wait for full healing to see how your BBL results have shaped your figure before considering another contouring treatment. If you can’t find success with weight loss but also want to achieve your dream figure, a tummy tuck can be a great option.
Before the existence of the popular BBL treatment, people would seek out a traditional butt lift to remove excess skin around the buttocks and lift the area so it appears less wrinkled. With a Brazilian Butt Lift, your own fat is injected into your buttocks, resulting in a shapelier, more natural-looking behind. If you still require a lift after the BBL reshaping treatment, you can consult with the SpaMedica team about extra steps to take for reversing signs of aging and the effects of gravity.
There is also a method involving silicone implants being placed into the buttocks that was popular before the introduction of Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. However, the silicone implants gave an unnatural contour and pose many risks, which is why many opt for a natural fat transfer to buttocks now.
Led by the expertise of BBL surgeon Dr. Thomas Bell, the skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeons at the Toronto SpaMedica clinic 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 can produce incredible results while reducing the risk of complications.
Dr. Bell has decades of experience when it comes to body contouring treatments, including BBL treatments. He is a master of his craft and Toronto’s go-to cosmetic surgeon for Brazilian Butt Lifts and other shaping, rejuvenating procedures.
Prior to your procedure, Dr. Bell and his Toronto 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. Bell 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.
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 before the fat transfer occurs, exposing them to ultrasound energy. 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.
When you gain weight, your fat cells become larger. When you lose weight, they become smaller. That’s why you can weigh more without adding fat cells. The same is true after a Brazilian Butt Lift. The fat cells that have become vascularized are there to stay and will grow if you gain weight.
If you gain or lose a lot of weight, your butt will get bigger or smaller relative to the rest of your body, but the change in size probably won’t be drastic. So, if you’re thinking about getting a Brazilian Butt Lift, don’t worry too much about the long-term effects of weight gain or loss -either way, a fat transfer will occur.
While either procedure can create stunning results on its own, some patients wonder if they can combine the two approaches for even more dramatic results.
In general, it is safe to have both BBL and butt implants procedure together. However, it is important to work with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has experience performing both procedures. This will help to ensure that the final outcome meets your expectations and that you are happy with your results.
As all bodies are different, the amount of fat that will be removed for your buttocks enhancement will depend on how much fat is on your body and the size you wish to achieve.
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.
