How to improve the appearance of your butt with minimal scars

A Brazilian butt lift is a popular and effective procedure to contour the butt and create a rounder appearance. In this procedure, your surgeon will perform liposuction to the abdomen, hips, lower back, and waist and then collect this fat and clean and process it before strategically transplanting it to your butt. This will have the benefit of creating a tighter and more shapely waist and abdomen and a fuller, round butt.

For your best results, the experience and the technique by your surgeon uses it is essential. For this reason only work with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has a great deal of experience in butt augmentation, butt contouring, and Brazilian butt lift techniques.

The cost of this procedure can vary depending on the amount of fat that will need to be transplanted and how long the surgery will take. Here in South Florida, this can range from $4000-$9000.

The cost of buttock augmentation with fat grafting

First the surgeon should determine if you are a good candidate for the so called Brazilian butt lift, as some patients do not get good results with fat grafting alone.  If  you are a good candidate, the next step is to determine what adjacent areas need to be contoured, where is the fat taken, the total volume of fat removed / injected, etc.

In our practice the surgical fee for butt lift with fat grafting is 5-8 K, depending on the above factors.  In addition there is surgical center charge that can very from 1-2K depending on length of the procedure. The most important factor is choosing a well trained and experienced surgeon that can deliver the desired result.

Cost of brazilian butt lift using fat grafts.

Hello Pedroza, I utilize a special fat processing technique that helps patients achieve long lasting and permanent results. The buttock is first contoured by performing lipo-sculpting in the areas around the buttocks to make them stand out more. Common areas liposuctioned include the back- directly above the butt, the stomach, and the thighs. The extracted fat is carefully processed and purified such that only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection to the buttocks. I inject small amounts of purified fat into different areas of the buttocks and at various depths so that the patient will get the highest permanent absorption rate. Therefore, the procedure usually involves 'hundreds' of micro fat injections. Correct injection methods are essential to achieve a uniform, smooth, natural appearance to the buttocks.

The range for total cost of butt augmentation with fat injections, (the brazilian butt lift) including the physician's fee, all pre and post op visits, iv-sedation anesthesia, and operating facility averages $16,000-$18,000.

Buttock Fat Grafting

Some fat grafting can be done under local anesthesia, which does reduce the costs. This would be about $3000-$4000 per session, but most people need more than one session.

We have had a number of patients looking for improvement, mostly in the buttocks area but also for people with asymmetrical legs, breasts, and defects after liposuction. Fat grafting is a great technique for these complaints.

BBL price

It really depends on where you are and the surgeon. It tends to be around $5000-$8000, the number of areas liposuctioned is also a factor. Better to shop by surgeon rather than price.

Price for BBL

In Miami, prices range from $6,000 to $12,000. Most people need 7-10 days off from work to recover. Most surgeons recommend sitting on a "boppy" pillow for one month after surgery.

Butt Lift Cost Using Fat Grafts?

Thank you for your question. This will depend on how many cc of fat are to be harvested, and injected. This all translates to time. I would guess on a figure of 8-15K depending on where you live, and the quantity of transfer. I hope this helps.
