Butt Lift Ontario

On a rare occasion, there is too much sag that an implant and/or fat grafting can not overcome. This is very similar to the breast when a breast lift is needed. In these instances, a butt lift is performed. The surgery can also be combined with either a butt implant or fat grafting to the butt. Again, this is very similar to breast surgery when both an implant and a lift are utilized.

What type of patients typically need a butt lift? Typically, patients that have lost over 100lbs and have “loose or elastic skin” require a butt lift.

  • How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?

    Question: My hips are about 40 inches. I would love my dimensions to read 36-30-46. That’s what I would love… would this be achieveable this with a Brazilian butt lift? How much does the procedure cost?

    The cost of Brazilian Butt Lift is dependent on two things:

    1. How Much Liposuction being performed?
    2. How Much Fat are is being injected?


    1. A Brazilian Butt Lift is achieved first by sculpting the flanks, waist, butt and hips with liposuction. The contouring of the torso and buttock is the most important part of the procedure. This is what separates a good result from an AMAZING result! As the amount of liposuction to be performed increases, the prices also increases.
    2. The more fat you want injected (or the bigger the butt you want), the more fat needs to harvested and purified. The purification process is extremely important. When fat is harvested there is a bunch of junk that comes with it (water, blood, tissue etc); injecting a high concentration of this “non-fat” particles will cause your butt to be swollen initially; but will decrease with time! In fact, I believe this is the reason why some people complain that their Brazilian Butt Lift did not last (after the swelling went down). Why am I discussing this? Because, unfortunately, the fat separation/purification takes time in the operating room; and this is not something that can be “sped-up” and definitely not something you want “short-cutted”

    So what does this mean as far as price? The typical range for a Brazilian Butt Lift is $7,500 to $9,500. In order to get an exact price, we need to to first perform an in-person consultation.

    As far as the question regarding your measurements of going from 36-30-40 to a 36-30-46:

    • The Brazilian Butt Lift is going to bring in your waist/torso measurement. Again, this is because we sculpt your Butt and the “Hour-Glass”of your waist with liposuction.
    • The fat can then be utilized to contour your butt and be placed to widen your hips. Depending on the amount of fat available and the amount of fat that survives grafting it may or may not be able to widen your hips by 6 inches.
    • Typically, in individuals that want to be significantly widened they require more multiple fat grafting procedures to achieve their goal.
  • Is There a Set Price to Take Fat out of my Stomach and Put It in my Buttocks?

    Question: I would like to get the fat sucked out of my stomach and get it put in my hip and buttocks area. Is there a set price for the two or is it two prices for two procedures?

    Hello, and great questions!

    Yes! Your fat can be sucked out your tummy (and from anywhere for that matter) and then injected into your butt to give a voluptuous shaped butt.

    Surgeons may differ in how this procedure is priced. I will typically give one price that is an all inclusive quote for the liposuction (Up to 5L which is the outpatient maximum) of the torso (Tummy, flanks, back, and thigh) to shape the butt and create an hour glass figure and to then process, inject, and sculpt the butt. The specific price is dependent on the amount of liposuction and fat grafting that will be performed.

    I hope that helps; best of luck!

  • Am I a Candidate for Fat Transfer to Buttocks?

    Whether you are a candidate for fat transfer to the butt depends on 3 factors:

    1. How much fat is available to transfer. Typically, after processing the liposuction fluid, I have about about 50% of viable fat to inject. Most surgeons, myself included, will perform a maximum of 5 Liters of liposuction because it is and feel comfortable sending you home the same day. The question then is: Is there enough fat to perform 5L of liposuction. Or will I only be able to perform 3 or 4 liters?
    2. How “stretchable” is the skin? Your skin will only accommodate so much fat. I liken it to individuals with earlobe gauges: you can not put a huge earlobe gauge in right away because the skin will tear and/or get infected. Almost all patients skin can accommodate some fat and this rarely stops someone from being a candidate for fat transfer. However, some patients skin is very stretchy and these individuals really need a lift!
    3. Finally, how big and curvy do you want to go? The bigger and curvier you desire, the more fat needs to be transferred. If you want to be very big and curvy, then it may require multiple procedures in order to achieve your goals.

    I think the absolute minimum for fat needed to make fat grafting worth your while is 600cc per side or a total of 1200cc of viable post-processed fat. This means that there must be at least 2.5 liters of fat that can be removed; and for most people this is not a problem.

    Another option to think about is the combination of butt implant and fat grafting to the butt to achieve an extremely round projected butt with an hour glass figure. This is my next option I recommend if I do not think there is enough fat to augment the butt with fat grafting alone.

  • Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

    A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is typically done as an outpatient procedure (you go home after surgery the same day) and has 2 aspects of recovery:

    Liposuction to the torso

    • Bruising and swelling are expected for the recovery. Bruising typically takes 1 to 2 weeks to subside. The swelling takes longer and doesn’t start to decrease until 3 to 4 weeks after surgery. It will typically take a total of 3 months for the majority of the swelling to be gone.
    • Firmness is also expected. This is partially due to swelling and partially a reaction to the liposuction. It also take at least 6 weeks to 3 months to soften. Starting at about 1 to 2 weeks after surgery; I encourage massage to soften the areas.
    • Compressive garments are worn at all times, except when showering, for the first 6 weeks. This helps to decrease swelling and depending on the amount of swelling that is present this may be extended to up to 3 months.

    Fat Transfer to the Butt

    • Sitting the first week is usually difficult bc the butt muscles are sore. Everyone has slightly different protocols/recoveries for sitting. The protocol I use:
      • Week 1: Sitting for the bathroom and quick meals
      • Week 2: Sitting for 15 to 30 minutes at a time, then standing up to shift your weight.
      • For the first 2 weeks, I like you to place a pillow under your knees/thighs when you sit to keep you from placing pressure on your butt.
      • Week 3: Sitting for 30 to 60 minutes at a time, then standing up to shift your weight.
      • Week 4: Sitting for 1 to 2 hours at a time, then standing up to shift your weight.

    Return to Work:

    • Typically, most of my patients are back to work after 1 to 2 weeks.
    • I think the most important thing to understand about the recovery is the swelling. This is because the swelling is going to obscure or hide the results and you won’t be able to see the drastic difference between the waist, butt, and hips until after the swelling has resolved; it takes at least 3 months to see that difference.
  • Could Frequent Sitting Affect Brazilian Butt Lift Results?

    FelixtheKitten Middle Village 7 years ago
    My job consists of sitting down for 7 hrs, 5 days a week. If I were to get a Brazilian Butt Lift would sitting on my rear end cause my butt to flatten or become oddly shaped?

    Hello and great question. After fat transfer to the butt, I do not want my patients to sit on their butt for the first week (except when going to the bathroom). The second week you can sit on your butt for short times to eat. At the 3 & 4 weeks mark I gradually start lengthening the sitting. After 4 weeks, there are no more sitting restrictions.

    I do think that sitting on your butt for that long at a time during the early course of the recovery can and will influence the amount of fat that survives and the can potentially change the shape of your buttock.
