Brazilian Butt Lift in Ottawa
A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a natural surgical procedure used to add volume and shape to the buttocks while also removing excess fat from other areas like the hips, thighs, and abdomen. This procedure makes the buttocks larger and rounder while removing fat from the hips to create a slimmer waist. This combination creates a beautiful transition between the hips and buttocks.

What Makes a Brazilian Butt Lift Unique.
The recovery could be quite painful, and the implants could develop problems like migration (moving out of position) or capsular contracture (excessive build-up of scar tissue). Luckily, BBL surgery has all but replaced implant-based buttock augmentation surgery.
Brazilian butt lift surgery uses a patient’s excess fat to build volume and shape the buttocks. Fat is collected using liposuction. This surgical technique uses short, hidden scars to remove fat between the skin and underlying muscle. For BBL surgery, there is a minimum amount of available fat that must be present to ensure a successful aesthetic result. In rare cases, a patient may be asked to gain a small amount of weight before surgery.
A Brazilian butt lift procedure lasts 3 to 4 hours and is done under general anesthetic.
Patients can go directly home after their procedure. Post-operative activity restrictions include asking patients to avoid sitting directly on their buttocks for the first two weeks after surgery. Most patients take two to three weeks off work following their surgery.
There are no further activity restrictions after 4 to 6 weeks, although it can take up to 3 months to see the final cosmetic result.
