At Dr. Avi Islur’s award-winning plastic surgery clinic, The First Glance, we specialize in three distinctive options: the Traditional Butt Lift, the Brazilian Butt Lift, and the Liquid or Filler Butt lift. These procedures come with unique benefits, and choosing the right one is a decision that should align closely with your personal goals and individual circumstances. In this guide, we will explore the factors that should play a crucial role in influencing your choice. Our aim is to empower you to make an informed decision that brings you closer to the specific results you envision. Let’s explore the key considerations that will help you determine which butt lift procedure is the right choice for you!
What is a Traditional Butt Lift?
A Traditional Butt Lift, also known as gluteoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the shape and appearance of the buttocks by addressing loose or sagging skin due to factors such as aging, weight loss, or genetics. Dr. Avi Islur performs this procedure by making incisions directly above the upper buttocks, removing excess skin to lift and tighten the area. Optionally, liposuction can be employed for a more toned appearance or an auto-augmentation can be performed where the skin and fat that would be otherwise be removed is rotated down into the buttocks and used to provide projection and fullness to the upper buttock. Dr. Islur’s Traditional Butt Lift surgery is conducted under general anesthesia and typically lasts 2-3 hours, varying based on the extent of the surgery. Candidates for this procedure are individuals with significant sagging skin, aiming for a lifted and toned look rather than a substantial increase in volume. The surgery allows for a same-day return home after the procedure.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that enhances the size and shape of the buttocks using the patient’s own fat. The process involves initial liposuction to extract excess fat from areas like the abdomen, love handles, thighs, or back. In Dr. Avi Islur’s renowned Winnipeg plastic surgery clinic, the expert team purifies the extracted fat before precisely injecting it into various regions of the buttocks, with the goal of achieving a more rounded, projected, and lifted appearance. Patient safety is paramount in this operation and Dr. Islur used the latest in High-Resolution Ultrasound technology to ensure the fat graft is placed above the gluteal muscle at all times thereby significantly decreasing the risks of fat emboli. Ideal candidates for a BBL desire a fuller and shapelier buttock contour and should have sufficient donor fat for liposuction. The procedure focuses on increasing buttock volume and improving shape, providing a more natural feel compared to buttock implants, as the injected fat integrates into existing tissues. Recovery times vary, with patients typically advised to avoid direct sitting on their buttocks during a specified period to promote the survival of the transferred fat. Approximately 50% of the fat injected is lost in the first several weeks but the remainder stays permanently as long as weight is not lost which may result in shrinkage of the fat cells.
What is a Liquid/Filler Butt Lift?
Dr Avi Islur, is currently the only certified injector of Revanesse Contour XL for Liquid Butt Lifts in Manitoba. Contour XL is a Hyaluronic acid filler, similar to those used in facial injectables but with a thicker gel. In a Filler or Liquid Butt Lift, the Hyaluronic Acid Gel is precisely injected into various regions of the buttocks, with the goal of achieving a more rounded, projected, and lifted appearance. Ideal candidates for a Liquid BBL desire a fuller and shapelier buttock contour, who may not have sufficient donor fat for a Brazilian Butt Lift with fat or don’t wish for the downtime or permanency of surgery. The procedure focuses on improving shape, providing a more natural feel compared to buttock implants, as the injected filler integrates into existing tissues. There is no downtime from this procedure and patients can return to all activities immediately. Patients may experience some mild to moderate pain in the first 1-2 days but it is generally well tolerated. Results typically last 2-3 years.
Which One Should I Choose?
Choosing between a traditional butt lift, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), or a Liquid/Filler Butt Lift depends on your specific goals, body type, and preferences. The traditional butt lift is optimal for those with loose or sagging skin in the buttock area due to aging, weight loss, or genetics. It concentrates on addressing sagging skin through the removal and, in some cases, repositioning of skin and underlying tissues, resulting in a lifted and more toned appearance but without significant volume addition.
On the other hand, a Brazilian Butt Lift is suitable for individuals desiring a fuller and shapelier buttock contour. Involving liposuction to extract excess fat from areas like the abdomen, flanks, or thighs, this procedure strategically injects fat into the buttocks, creating a more rounded and lifted appearance with a natural feel. Additionally, the shaping benefits of liposuction are substantial.
Lastly, a Liquid or Filler Butt Lift is suitable for individuals desiring a subtle change in fullness and improvement in hip dips and don’t wish to have the downtime from surgery or lack the fat required to transfer to the buttock as performed in a Brazilian Butt Lift. When deciding, consider factors such as your primary goals, body type, recovery preferences.
