Not all Plastic Surgeons perform all plastic surgery procedures. Some specialize.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a great procedure when done by board certified plastic surgeons who have experience with this procedure and a technique that works. This procedure has been around for at least 12 years, but has only recently become popular. Be sure you find a plastic surgeon with a lot of experience with this procedure. If there aren't any plastic surgeons in your area that perform this procedure, many patients travel to a location where the is a surgeon that they are comfortable with. But you have be sure that you can stay in that location long enough to make it safe.

Tips on picking a plastic surgeon for butt lift or other cosmetic surgery.
Tips on picking a Plastic Surgeon for butt lift.
Answer by George J. Beraka, MD
Manhattan Plastic Surgeon
1) Is the surgeon a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery? Members usually do a lot of cosmetic surgery.
2) Did you sense a commitment to excellence in the office. Did the surgeon spend a lot of time with you? Someone who rushes through the consultation may rush through the surgery.
3) Were you treated as an individual? Did the surgeon present you with a surgical plan tailor made for you?
4) Plastic surgeons have to have a good eye and meticulous technique. Did the surgeon show you A LOT of before and after pictures, and did you love the results?
5) Talk to other doctors you know. Established plastic surgeons have a reputation in the community, good or bad.
6) Ask to speak to a patient who has had the procedure you want. You are looking for a surgeon who does a lot of what you want. Many patients are eager to share their experience. Privacy is preserved by having the patient call you.
7) If you are having breast augmentation, ask if the surgeon has a large inventory of different size and shape breast implants available in the operating room. A surgeon who does a lot of breast surgery will have an inventory. This way, the final implant choice does not have to be made in advance.
8) With office surgery, make sure the surgical facility is ACCREDITED. Very important safety assurance.
9) Make sure the anesthesia is given by a BOARD CERTIFIED ANESTHESIOLOGIST. Another very important safety factor.
10) Make sure the office has trained nurses available for hands-on post operative care. This can really speed recovery.
