I'm looking at different doctors (in the U.S.) for this procedure and they all seem to be accredited doctors but some of their prices are such a huge difference from other doctors? Why do some BBL costs twice as much as others with the same procedure being done? Are the doctors who charge over $15,000 for BBL's known for having good BBL results?

Prices for cosmetic surgery can vary dramatically
Price Check for Surgery
There are wide variations in prices between different surgeons and different geographic regions. More important than the cost is the reputation / experience of the surgeon you are choosing. Any prices that are far out of the range of the average in a particular area can certainly warrant further investigation, especially to make sure the facility is fully accredited. This procedure does take some time and specialized equipment and if the prices are quite low, this may be warning sign that you should avoid.
Choosing your plastic surgeon should not be based on price (although this will certainly factor in to most patient's decision making)
Prices can vary dramatically for cosmetic surgery
The cost of cosmetic surgery can vary significantly from surgeon to surgeon and from city to city. With regard to a Brazilian buttock lift the total cost can vary anywhere from 6000-15000. Surgeons can really charge whatever they want for a procedure but this also depends on how much time it takes for them to do and the OR and anesthesia fees associated. Be sure that your plastic surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and operates in a fully accredited surgery center. In an area like Los Angeles a reasonalbe cost for fat transfer to the buttock is in the range of 8-10,000. Try to meet with a few plastic surgeons and have surgery with the one you're most comfortable with and trust, more than the surgeon with the best price.

One of the best ways to choose a surgeon or doctor in general is to know previous patients of that Dr. see the results and discuss with the previous patients about their satisfaction with the surgeon. Other than that looking at before-and-after photographs, checking credentials and board certification by the American Board of plastic surgery is probably a good way to choose a surgeon.
