Cost for Brazilian Buttock Lift or Natural Buttock Augmentation (NBA)

A Brazilian Butt Lift is the term given to using your own body fat to enhance your buttocks.  This is a 'Natural Buttock Augmentation" NBA,  that is creating by grafting your own soft body fat from different parts of your body through liposuction.

 Because a Brazilian Butt Lift or NBA utilizes liposuction,  usually  from the flanks or abdomen , this results in an overall more beautiful body shape and contour. The ideal shape is a gentle feminine "S" curve that goes from your back to waist to hip thigh and buttock. Enough fat is required to enhance the gluteal or buttock region but shaping the flanks and waist will help create this beautiful curve even with  a minimum amount of grafting.  Usually about 60% of the fat will live as natural fat and will respond to weight gain and dieting. The areas of liposuction usually change to a lesser degree./

The NBA , Natural Buttock Augmentation, or Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours.  This depends upon both the amount of liposuction and the number of cc's of fat being grafted into the buttocks. Different surgeons charge in different ways. Some charge  $1500-3000 per area of liposuction plus $3500-$5000 for fat transfer. In addition there are hourly fees for  the operating room  and anesthesia which can cost 800-1500 dollars per hour.  

Because these fees becomes confusing for many patients, we have started charging per hour of treatment which is about 3000-4000 per hour.  So an average size NBA(BBL) requires liposuction of the flanks and abdomen with about 300 cc of fat per buttock and this requires about 2.5 hours of surgery.

Healing after surgery:  we reccommend  no direct pressure to the to buttocks  for 4-6 wks. This means lying on you back is not helpful to your recovery. Sitting is fine as you don't sit directly of the grafted area unless your are slouching.Prescription pain medicines may be needed for 2-4 days. Most of my my patients return to work in 3-4 days. Your activity is as you feel fit. Walking the day of surgery. Cardio in the first two weeks and more intense exercise in four to six weeks .  You will look good within a month and awesome by 4-6 months.
