For patients who are unhappy with the shape and appearance of their buttocks, The Ottawa Clinic offers the Brazilian Butt Lift to provide an enhanced contour and firmer look. Our plastic surgeons utilize advanced fat grafting techniques for buttock lift procedures, which involve a combination of liposuction and the transfer of extracted fat cells to the upper part of the buttocks for a more shapely, toned look.
To be a candidate for this procedure, the patient must have enough fatty deposits in a “donor” area of the body for fat to be transferred. Common areas of fat harvest include the abdomen, arms, flanks, and thighs. This way of enhancing the buttocks actually gives patients somewhat of a dual procedure – liposuction in a targeted area, followed by buttock enhancement.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
To begin the procedure, your surgeon will perform liposuction of the targeted donor site. The fat is then harvested and prepared for injection into the buttocks in small doses. For patients with a more “square” buttock shape, liposuction may be performed in the outer gluteal areas as well. Extra fatty tissue may be injected into the buttocks to compensate for the significant amount of fat tissue the body typically reabsorbs.
Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery
Following your surgery, you may experience mild swelling and soreness, but this should gradually fade over the first month. You will wear a compression garment temporarily to help the buttock retain the new shape and to control swelling. While not all of the injected fat will be retained, the results are often long-lasting and can ultimately provide a fuller, more voluptuous appearance.
