Liposuction and Brazilian Butt Lift Doctor Recommendations in New York?

I am considering Liposuction and a Brazilian Butt Lift. I reside in New York City. I can't find any doctors that can do both Brazilian Butt Lift AND liposuction in New York City. I know that people often travel but there are other people who just aren't in the position to travel.

Any recommendations for doctors that do both procedures?

Lipo and BBL Doctors in NYC

Thanks for your question. When researching plastic surgeons who perform both liposuction and BBL, after checking their credentials, look at what the focus of the practice is. For example, not all plastic surgeons are fellowship trained in cosmetic surgery (extra training) and also may divide their time with reconstructive surgery. Lipo and BBL may appear to be straightforward operations, but experience and a large number of cases performing them (just like anything in life we focus on) will really impact your result. Doctors who also spend time to publish their results in journals where other plastic surgeons can read about them and lecture internationally on the topic means that they spend a lot of time thinking about the operation so that it can be continually improved to the benefit of the patient. Please get a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon and good luck.

In Florida is very common to perform a Brazilian butt lifts and liposuction of other areas of the body. The most common areas include under the chin, the arms, and lower extremities.

Keep in mind that a Brazilian Butt lift is a procedure plastic surgery that is extremely technique and certain dependent. It is worth your time to perform a great deal of research before settling on a plastic surgeon.

During your consultation, it is very important to discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon. They should be able to evaluate you and determine if you have enough fat and tissue to accomplish your goals. In our consultations we find digital software extremely useful. This allows us to transform the photographs of our patients so that they can get an idea of what it could look like after their surgery. Is a very important communication and education tool as it allows us to visualize the patients own goals.

The most important things to look for when you are looking for a surgeon is that they can give you the results you are looking for and that they can do it safely!

Be sure you shop around and check out several surgeons before you make a choice. This procedure has been around for a long time. I have been performing the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure for about 12 years and have done hundreds of cases. But recently, it has gotten very popular. Many docs are starting to do this procedure, and some are not plastic surgeons. Be sure you find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who has a lot of experience with this procedure. Be sure they can show you a Lot of pictures of their patients who have had this procedure. And make sure they have the type of results you are looking for. Good Luck

Tips on picking a Plastic Surgeon for liposuction and Brazilian butt lift.

Answer by George J. Beraka, MD
Manhattan Plastic Surgeon
1) Is the surgeon a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery? Members usually do a lot of cosmetic surgery.

2) Did you sense a commitment to excellence in the office. Did the surgeon spend a lot of time with you? Someone who rushes through the consultation may rush through the surgery.

3) Were you treated as an individual? Did the surgeon present you with a surgical plan tailor made for you?

4) Plastic surgeons have to have a good eye and meticulous technique. Did the surgeon show you A LOT of before and after pictures, and did you love the results?

5) Talk to other doctors you know. Established plastic surgeons have a reputation in the community, good or bad.

6) Ask to speak to a patient who has had the procedure you want. You are looking for a surgeon who does a lot of what you want. Many patients are eager to share their experience. Privacy is preserved by having the patient call you.

7) If you are having breast augmentation, ask if the surgeon has a large inventory of different size and shape breast implants available in the operating room. A surgeon who does a lot of breast surgery will have an inventory. This way, the final implant choice does not have to be made in advance.

8) With office surgery, make sure the surgical facility is ACCREDITED. Very important safety assurance.

9) Make sure the anesthesia is given by a BOARD CERTIFIED ANESTHESIOLOGIST. Another very important safety factor.

10) Make sure the office has trained nurses available for hands-on post operative care. This can really speed recovery.
