Brazilian Buttock Lift cost

Just consider what is involved.

Liposuction of multiple areas to get 2000-3000 cc of fat and collect it in sterile manner, the device for collection is about $300.

The time it takes is about 3-4 hours, minimum. Preparing the fat, cleaning, removing the debris and oil takes one hour.

Then fat transfer; the disposables cost about $500. Plus the cost of anesthesia, cost of the operating room and nursing staff, and drugs. Then the surgical fees for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for a total time of 6 hours.

Note: I just had a plumber charge me $60 for the first 15 minutes and the problem was not fixed.

Beware of "cheap" deals!!

As previously stated you will get what you pay for. This cost will not cover your facility fees in a respectable outpatient center or hospital. Beware of cheap deals that could yield bad results. It will take thousands of dollars to fix this at the end!

Cost of Brazilian Butt Lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thanks for the question - A Brazilian butt lift enhances the contour of your buttocks by injecting fat removed from other parts of your body (usually abdomen, hips and thighs). In my San Francisco area practice we've performed this procedure on people with excellent results. Most practices (mine included) charge about $2000-$2500 per body area of liposuction. Assuming you needed a very small buttock augmentation (my patients typically require between 200 and 400cc of transferred fat per side) and that all of the fat could be harvested from one area (this is not typically the case) you would be looking at about $2000 for just the fat harvest. After we harvest the fat it is gently spun down or decanted and select vials are selected for viability. We then use a variety of small cannulae to reinject the fat in appropriate planes within the buttocks. The re-injection typically takes 2-3 hours. The procedure takes time. It takes experience. You should be very careful about going to a surgeon that will do a Brazilian Butt Lift for $2000. Be sure to start your search with a board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!

No there is not a safe BBL under that price.  There isn't any plastic surgery operation for that price range.

Unfortunately, $2000 wouldn't even cover operating room and anesthesia fees for Brazilian Butt Lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

This is a very tedious and time consuming procedure and therefore one of the more expensive procedures we perform. I would not shop for the cheapest price. In some situations you do get what you pay for, and this is one of them.

Prices do vary from surgeon to surgeon. You need to find not only a price you can afford, but a surgeon who is experienced in this procedure and who provides the types of results you are looking for.

Safe Brazilian Buttlift for Under $2000?

   The Brazilian buttlift tends to cost $6000 at the very low end.  If you find someone suggesting that it can be done under $2000, I would wonder where it would be done.  I would wonder what would be the anesthetic choice.  Finally, I would wonder who would perform the surgery.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Brazilian Buttlift Los Angeles, CA

There is no credible version of a brazilian butt lift for $2000.  To be happy with the results, you need to ensure that enough fat is taken out so that it can be sufficient for the process.

Safety and Cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
I am glad you asked about the safety of surgery, in addition to the cost. I often counsel patients who go to great lengths to secure a "cheap" surgery….and ultimately this can lead to greater cost (financially and emotionally.)

The simple answer to your question is: "No." 

Anyone who tells you the procedure is possible for $2000 is probably not being realistic about what you will pay for the entire procedure. Though practices may differ somewhat in terms of what they charge, I think you will find that all good surgeons charge for these specific things:

1. Consultation
2. Procedural anesthesia and OR time
3. Areas liposuctioned (for example, the abdomen, flanks, and thighs would be three areas.)
4. The processing and injection of fat (in this case, the brazilian butt lift.)

In truth, the price varies from patient to patient. Any good plastic surgeon will do exactly (not more, not less) what is right for you…and charge you accordingly. I think that most of my colleagues will agree that $2000 for a BBL is suspiciously low, and recommend you consult with several board certified surgeons before proceeding. It's your body, after all.
