How Much Does Butt Enhancement Injections Cost?

Thanks for the question.  Typically, buttock augmentation is done in conjunction with liposuction surgery.  Brazilian Butt Lift, which is the term that is often used for augmenting the buttock with fat, is done at the same time as the liposuction.  Liposuction is usually the first step of the process in order to remove the fatty tissues of the abdomen, waist, or outer thighs.  That same fat then gets processed immediately and used for injection directly into the buttock to enhance the area and give it a more flattering curve.  The combination of the addition of fat into the buttock with the liposuction or reduction of fat in the areas where it did not enhance the body together create a better contour for the body. 


The cost of these procedures is influenced by the amount of time that is required to do it and the areas of liposuction that are performed.  So, you can expect a variance of about $5000 on up.  $5000 would probably cover the fat grafting in combination with one or two areas of liposuction.  Typically, this cost would include the operating room, facility fee, surgeon’s fee, follow-up, and garments.  Most patients can expect this is a starting price point and it can go from there.

Brazilian butt lift is so popular because it enables your plastic surgeon to transform your entire shape. Liposuction is performed over several areas depending on the individual patient needs, but typically of the flanks, abdomen and back.

It is important to have several consultations with board certified plastic surgeons. Also make sure that your surgery is being performed in an accredited surgery center or hospital.

It is important to ask the right questions during your consultation:

1.Is your surgeon a board certified plastic surgeon?
a.Be sure he or she is a plastic surgeon, there are a lot surgeons that are cosmetic surgeons or board certified in other fields other than plastic surgery. They do not do the same training as a plastic surgeon.
b.You can check the American Board of Plastic Surgery website for a list of plastic surgeons in your area.
2.Does your surgeon commonly perform this procedure?
a.Ask to see before and after pictures or look online for reviews on the procedure.
3.Where is the surgery performed
a.Is the procedure performed in an accredited surgery center or hospital?
4.Who performs the anesthesia for the procedure?
a.Is an anesthesiologist performing the anesthesia?
Unfortunately here in Miami many patients try to save money by having their procedure performed by non-plastic surgeons and at facilities that have not been accredited and often have problems.

This all depends on the surgeon, city, surgical facility, and several other factors. In Toronto, Ontario, you can expect to pay around $8000-$9500 for a Brazilian Butt Lift, which is the transfer of fat from other areas on your body to the buttocks. These areas tend to be where fat is stored readily, such as the thighs and mid-section.

Buttock augmentation can be achieved with buttock implants or fat transfer

I personally do not perform buttock implants because of the high complication rate. I have had good results with fat transfer to the buttocks combined with buttock reshaping using Slim-Lipo techniques. This technique requires general anesthesia and involves the harvesting of large amounts of fat from oter areas of the body. By sculpting the areas around the buttocks a more shapely buttock can be created.
