What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Fat transfer to the buttocks, more commonly referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift (a.k.a. BBL), is a cosmetic surgery in which Dr. Plant removes excess fat from the abdomen, love handles, and lower back and transfers it to the butt and/or hips to give you curves that will stop traffic.


A Brazilian butt lift can help you achieve a fuller, rounder, and higher butt without using implants. Because it allows patients to achieve curves that would be impossible to achieve with any amount of diet and/or exercise, Brazilian Butt Lift has quickly become one of Toronto’s most popular procedures in addition to being one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed around the world.

Dr. Plant is well known for giving natural curves with the fewest scars as part of his signature one-scar Brazilian Butt Lift, and patients come from all around Canada for him to perform this procedure for them.

What Are My Brazilian Butt Lift Options?

Depending on exactly what you are looking to achieve and how much fat you have to transfer there are many options for you to customize your Brazilian Butt Lift.

Dr. Mathew Plant is one of the few plastic surgeons in Toronto that truly customizes his Brazilian Butt Lift for each patient. Because he is using your own fat and transferring it in a way that as much or as little as needed can be added to any given area, he can specifically target the areas you want.

The most common areas addressed are:

The Butt Itself (a.k.a. Adding Projection)

Transferring fat directly to the rear part of the butt adds projection (makes it stick out further) and lifts the butt at the same time. This, combined with liposuction to the lower back, helps to give more “pop” to the butt and is most visible in the profile view.

The Hips/Hip Dips (a.k.a. Making Curves)

Transferring fat into the hips and filling the hip dips gives the smooth hourglass curve that so many women want these days. This creates a smooth transition from the waist to the thighs and gives an ultra-feminine silhouette.

The Transition Zone

This is the area between the hips and the buttock that is so important in creating a natural look. Often overlooked, this area blends the new curves in the hips and the butt to ensure that everything looks completely natural. If you have an image of a bad BBL in your head, it’s probably because this area was ignored.

How Big Are the Scars from Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery and Where Will They Be?

All Brazilian Butt lifts are based on liposuction, which means the scars will all be around 5mm in size and should fade nicely. In most surgeons’ hands there will be at least 6 to 7 incisions (read on to see why this is not the case with Dr. Plant). 

Typically, there are two within the bikini area and often another one within the belly button. Around the back, there are typically 4 to 5. The two very tell-tale scars above the buttocks, two better-hidden scars underneath the buttocks, and often an additional one between the buttocks.

What is the One-Scar BBL?

Just because the scars are small and fade doesn’t change Dr. Plant’s constant drive to use fewer, smaller scars. Dr. Plant designs the procedure in a way that uses only two small incisions in the front, easily hidden by any bikini bottom, and one scar in the back, carefully placed between the buttocks so it is hidden by even the smallest thong.

The two scars that sit above the buttocks and are a dead giveaway that someone has had surgery are completely eliminated in this technique. This is why Dr. Plant’s one-scar technique is so sought after by patients all across the country who gladly travel to Toronto for results that only Dr. Plant can achieve.

Recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift

There will be some bruising and swelling around the buttocks and around where the fat was harvested for your Brazilian butt lift in Toronto. Most patients will need around six weeks of recovery.

You will need to avoid sitting, lying down, and sleeping on your buttocks for the first few weeks of your recovery. Mild physical activity can be resumed after seven days or so, but more strenuous activity will need to be avoided for at least six weeks.

Post-operative instructions will be provided following your Brazilian butt lift in Toronto.

Am I the Right Candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift?

If you are a healthy patient who is unhappy with the size and/or shape of your butt or hips, then a Brazilian Butt Lift may be a great procedure for you.

While having a great butt and a narrow waist are two of the most commonly requested goals when patients join a gym or hire a personal trainer, they are also two of the most difficult areas to improve with diet and exercise.

If you were born with flat buttocks or hips, have buttocks that are sagging, have deep hip dips that you want to correct, just want more “pop” to your butt, or have undergone massive weight loss that has changed the shape of your buttocks, you may be a good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift in Toronto.

Results are beyond my expectations

“Dr. Plant at Clinic 360 is by far one of the best surgeons. He preformed my BBL +Lipo 360. He did an outstanding job and my results are beyond my expectations. I wanted an hour glass shape with a round full bum, without looking too fake. He nailed it. I am now curvaceous and thanks to Dr. Plant, I have hourglass shape like the insta models. He is so caring and takes his profession very seriously. A true artist. I came in weighting 140 pounds and I am 5’3 just for comparison for readers.
Thank you so much Dr. Plant for taking the time pre op and post op to make sure I am taken care of and completely sculpting my body to perfection.
