It depends on where your best fat is located

Usually we try to harvest from the abdomen, flanks (sides) and back first. Then arms and thighs. It depends how much fat you have and how big a butt you want to achieve. Usually 2-3 areas are included in the price.


Hope this helps,

Typically the lower abdomen, flanks (love handles) and lower back are the areas treated with liposuction during a fat transfer to the buttock with tummy tuck. You may also need your thighs treated depending on how much fat you have or need for the buttock augmentation. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon for more details regarding your specific case and the cost, which can vary significantly depending on the number of areas treated , your weight, and the location of the actual procedure (hospital vs surgery center)

The amount of fat that is removed during a Tummy Tuck to be used for a Brazilian Butt Lift varies from case to case.If one does not have enough fat in the abdominal area fat can be taken elesewhere.Prices vary according to which areas need liposuction.Typically Tummy Tucks include liposuction to the abdominal area.

Two areas are usually included. But more important than price is experience. Choose a board certified plastic surgeon who has done a ton of butt lifts and tummy tucks.

The areas of liposuction for Brazilian Buttock Lift depends on the amount available on your back, waist, stomach, thighs, and arms.  Typically the sites are harvested in that preference order but you have input.  The tummy tuck is staged for a second surgery for the best result. 

What's included in the Brazilian Butt Lift?

Surgeons may have different ideas of what makes up the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.  We also often have different techniques that we use to perform this procedure.  The results will therefore also vary. 
In my practice, I include liposuction of the entire abdomen, waist and flank region as well as placing all of this fat into your buttocks.  I also frequently remove fat from other areas if the patient desires or if it will improve the overall results.  The goal is to have a thin waistline and a buttocks which is proportionately larger than the surrounding areas.

The Tummy Tuck is a totally separate procedure and does not typically include liposuction.

You are undergoing Tummy Tuck and Brazilian Butt Lift. For the brazilian Butt you will have liposuction, now we are talking a whole body contouring. so the lipo has to be strategically choosen from areas where the body shape is enhanced to the max.

Choose the right procedure not the cheapest procedure. Work with your doctor and they will make it affordable for you with multiple procedures.
