There are several surgeons in the South Florida/Miami area that frequently perform this procedure with great results.

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.

  • 2.Does your surgeon commonly perform this procedure?

You are right that Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is not that common in NY and NJ. There are several docs that do it, but you need to make sure that you find a board certified plastic surgeon who does at least 6-8 BBLs per week and can show you over 100 before and after pictures of his/her own patients. Don't select based on price, though, because the best and busiest will probably the most expensive.

BBL in NYC or NJ

The Brazilian Butt Lift has gained a lot of popularity in the past few years and continues to grow, especially in the NYC and NJ greater metro area. Just as in any plastic surgery, research qualified and experienced surgeons who perform this on a regular basis. For example, plastic surgeons who regularly lecture and publish articles on body contouring in peer reviewed journals tend to concentrate their practices on these types of procedures and naturally will have a large number of cases and experience with them. It is important to get an in-person consultation so that your expectations can be matched with what the operation and surgeon can deliver.

Yes, there are many who do it, but few do it well. If the surgeon is board certified by the American board of plastic surgeons and does a lot of these procedures you are probably safe. Key questions to ask are: How many have you done of this surgery? How do you treat the fat before grafting? Where do you make your tiny cuts? How many of your patients needed more filling? If you like the doctor, and his answers tell you he is experienced enough to trust with your body; have this procedure done, but don't limit yourself to a certain geographical area. People fly from long distances to get this done...choose wisely. It's your butt...don't leave it in inexperienced hands simply because of the close distance.

Brazilian Butt Lift.......

There are not very many surgeons who have much experience with the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.  So, you need to shop around and find a surgeon who provides the results that you are seeking.  And, you need to be sure that the surgeon can provide these type of results "routinely".  The best way is to check out their before and after photos on their website or in their office.  If they don't have many photos, then they probably haven't done this procedure very many times or may just not be able to provide the type of results that you are seeking.  Be sure you are comfortable with your surgeon of choice.  I have performed this procedure for about 13 years now and often get referrals from other plastic surgeons who tell me that they cannot get the fat to survive.  When done well, the results are beautiful! 
Good Luck
