Is There a Safe Brazilian Butt Lift Under $2000?

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.

Cost of Brazilian Butt Lift

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!

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!

Cheap brazilian lift

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

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.

Cutting Corners is a Bad Idea in Plastic Surgery

Please be careful using price as a the primary criteria in selecting a plastic surgeon. Fundamentally, we are investing in ourselves when we seek to improve our appearance through a surgical procedure, and Plastic Surgery is not the place to play around with "penny stocks."

Good outcomes and safety are no accident. In advanced body contouring techniques such as a Brazillian Butt Lift, painstaking attention to detail and years of training and experience are required.

For a procedure such as a Brazilian Butt Lift that requires careful liposuction sculpting and fat transfer techniques, I would take great care in seeking an experienced surgeon. I doubt that such a surgery can safely be done for $2000.

Hope this helps.

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

Brazilian Butt Lift

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.

Is there a safe Brazilian Butt Lift for under $2,000?

Thanks for your Realself Question regarding if there is a safe Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure that costs less than $2,000.  It's hard to imagine you're going to get much of a change for a procedure that costs around $2,000 as there is a significant amount of expertise involved as well as relatively costly surgical supplies that go along with the procedure.  In Denver, the low end for a Brazilian Butt lift will be around $3 thousand to $5 thousand depending upon the procedure that will help you get the results that you are looking to achieve.  Thanks again for your question.

Brazilian Butt Lift Costs

I would strongly caution you from using price as a way to decide upon a surgeon and a facility to have your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure done.  Many factors go into the cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure and include: surgeon experience, surgeon expertise, location of facility, and how much fat is necessary to provide the patient with their desired buttock augmentation.  In just looking deeper at the last cost factor, the amount of fat necessary can be small or it can be quite large depending upon the desired result and the patient's baseline buttock volume.  As such, some patients will require that fat be harvested via liposuction from numerous areas and this can also impact the price.  

I would recommend consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon who is well-experienced in Brazilian Butt Lift procedures.  It is at this consultation that you will be able to get a better idea of what the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure would mean for your specific case and will clearly outline the financial picture.  Many practices across the country offer patients different financing options to help make their plastic surgery dreams a reality and I would recommend that you discuss this possibility with your surgeons surgical coordinator to find the best option available for you.
