Brazilian butt lift (BBL) – Buttock augmentation with Safe Subcutaneous Buttock Augmentation (SSBA) fat injection
This procedure is known under different names, but basically consists in transferring fat from one or more areas of the body (stomach, flanks, saddlebags, thighs, lower back, etc.) and reinjecting it into the buttocks to increase size, shape, and roundness.
Most commonly known as the Brazilian butt lift or Brazilian lift, the procedure was actually not invented in Brazil and is not a “lift” as there is no skin removal or scars larger than 2 mm to 4 mm.
Injecting autologous fat into the buttocks does have its share of risks and should be discussed during the consultation. Most importantly, the procedure must be performed by an experienced and qualified surgeon. Dr. Boudana has undergone intensive specialized training in Brazilian butt lifts to ensure this service is offered to his patients in total safety.
The first step of the procedure is removing excess fat from other parts of the body. These parts will have been identified during the consultation with Dr. Boudana. These usually include the abdomen, flanks, hips and back. The fat removal is done with liposuction using the SAFELipo® technique. The aspirated fat is preserved and reinjected into the buttocks in the second step.
The second step is done using the Expansion Vibration Lipofilling (EVL) technique, the most modern technique proven to be effective and safe.
The amount of fat injected into the buttocks will depend on the patient’s proportions and desired size and shape, determined beforehand with Dr. Boudana.
Where is the surgery performed?
Dr. Boudana only operates on patients in private state-of-the-art operating rooms accredited by Accreditation Canada. This accreditation is a guarantee that the facilities meet stringent safety and quality standards.
Dr. Boudana’s patients have the choice of having their surgery done in Laval or in Saguenay.
After the procedure, Dr. Boudana offers a personalized follow-up. It is advised not to apply pressure on the buttocks for 14 days.
Our nurses will also be available.
You will be given a postoperative instruction sheet when you are discharged as well as a prescription for pain medication.
A light compression garment and adhesive strips applied to the skin will stabilize the fat while the injected fat cells settle.
Immediately after the procedure, the swelling will make the buttocks appear larger. This will slowly subside over the next three to six months.
The result will be visible once the swelling has fully subsided and the fat cells have settled, about three months after the operation.
