Thank you for your question. There are two common ways to enhance a buttock, but each requires surgery. The most common method is through the use of fat-grafting, popularized as the "Brazilian Butt Lift", or BBL. This procedure involves performing liposuction of diet and exercise resistant areas of the body (typically the abdomen, waist, hips, and back), followed by processing and purifying the fat before injecting the fat back into the glutes. This fat can be used to recontour the buttock region, while adding volume and firmness. The second method of butt augmentation is through the use of buttock implants, a better option for those with otherwise little body fat. 

A popularized trend in those patients not having sufficient fat for harvest is the use of Sculptra, a dermal filler, to help augment your buttock naturally by encouraging your own tissue and collagen formation to add volume, projection, and size. 

Injections of any other material is at best, unsafe, and at worst, can be dangerous to your health.  Please do not entertain this option.

Cost of surgery depends on a number of factors, including the type of procedure performed, the anticipated amount of time in the OR based on the amount of fat that will need to be harvested, the area of the country that the procedure is performed, and the facility where the procedure is performed. Price can range from 5K to 20K, with the average in the 10-15K dollar range. Though price is always an important factor, be sure to research your ASPS board certified plastic surgeon for their experience, knowledge, and professionalism. This ensures that you can anticipate the results you are going after. Hope that this helps.

Cost of Buttock Injection

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
The price for a fat transfer depends on several factors and varies from one practice to another. There is a big difference if you are injecting 40cc in the face or 6cc in the lips compared to 1600cc of fat for a buttock augmentation. 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, back and thighs which obviously increase the cost compared fat grafting of the lips. Many practices have some type of assistance to help with financing the procedures such as care credit.

With that said I would tell you that when it comes to your body, I would not choose your surgeon by who is the cheapest. 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.

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.

Many patients inquire about buttock injection in our Atlanta office. The only safe buttock injection material is with your own fat. Fat injection for buttock enhancement is also known as Brazilian buttock lift. This procedure can be done either in a hospital or office by a board certified Plastic Surgeon. Injecting anything else into your buttock can be dangerous and may pose a risk to your life. A simple web search of butt injection may show you all the complications from injecting various substances by non physicians and often in hotels, homes, garages, etc. None of these substances are approved by the FDA for buttock injection. The average cost of fat injection to the buttock is about $3500 plus the cost of liposuction.

The answer to the question of cost is variable based on the region you are desiring the surgery, the experience and quality of the surgeon and the amount of liposuction and fat grafting involved. You should have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your region to obtain the best price information.

Thank you for the question.

There are many options for buttock enhancement.  The most popular would be simply removal of unwanted fat and it being transferred to the buttocks.  The fat is processed after liposuction and made ready for transfer.  You may also follow us on instagram @drJplasticsurgery or snap chat @drJsurgery to get a better idea.  Costs vary greatly based on many factors.

Make sure you have a thorough consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in this procedure. Check her/his experience, credentials, reviews, before and after photos, and have a quality consultation.  There are many surgeons including myself who do virtual consultations as well.  

It is preferred for your surgeon to be member of "American Society of Plastic Surgeons" and ideally member of "American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery". This means they have been evaluated by the society and recognized that the focus of their practice is high volume and quality, honest aesthetic plastic surgery and they adhere to a code of ethics.

All my best,

The only safe injection for one's buttocks is their own fat, which is called a Brazilian Butt Augmentation. This is a surgery as it harvests your own fat from other areas to then be injected into your buttocks. The cost of this procedure varies greatly based on where you are located. Good luck!

I guess all Board Certified Plastic Surgeons will agree. Patients under no circumstance inject any materials silicon, oils, PMM in to there body
It is ilegal in the USA and in Mexico!
They give problems in the long run and are impossible to be removed and corrected

The only 2 procedures available to do a safe but augmentation is
Fat transfer 3 areas for $3,900
or but implants for $5,500

Take care of your health!

Sincerely Dr. Manuel Gutierrez

Injecting anything other than Fat carries far too much risk.  We have all heard multiple national stories were patients died from complications.  It is not something recommended by our society of the American Board of plastic surgeons. 2 Thumbs down.

The only injections to the buttock that is SAFE and effective is by FAT.

Any other ILLEGAL type of injections such as commercial silicone (FROM THE HARDWARE STORE) or Hydrogell is illegally done by non doctors and carries significant potential problems

What is the cost of buttock injections?

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

Patients often inquire about buttock injections thinking that it is a non-surgical procedure and, therefore, should be inexpensive. It is very important to realize that the only safe technique involves the use of fat transplantation. This is a surgical procedure under general anesthesia. This is a very safe technique which lends itself to achieving very satisafactory results and in the processs also improves the contour of the donor sites. The average surgical fee using fat transplantation is $10,000-12,000. You must stay away from having Hydrogel and/or silicone inkections. These can cause all sorts of local and health problems, including possible death. In addition to this these injections are illegal. Don't be taken in by the cheaper price of these other injections. These are really very dangerous.
