If you’re reading this blog, you have probably already researched what a Brazilian Butt Lift is and are considering undergoing this surgical procedure to get the backside of your dreams. A shapely and toned derriere is something many women desire to have, but few are born with it. This is why a Brazilian butt lift was created.
It is assumed that the Brazilian butt lift is for butt augmentation; it uses a combination of liposuction, fat-grafting maneuvers for volume, and butt reshaping through the creation of curves and lifting the buttock when it is sagging, and even making the butt smaller.
The surgeon will first suction the fat out from around the buttock, such as the lower back and flanks and the lateral and medial thighs, designating the frame around the buttock. This fat is then processed and re-injects back into the buttocks and hip region, depending on your booty shaping goals. You can choose from a menu of butt widths and projections to get the Brazilian buttock lift of your dreams.
So now let’s talk about the cost.
It is essential to recognize that every woman has a unique body and expectations for their augmentation results. Although we wish there were a cut-and-dry answer to how much BBL costs, the cost of BBLs can vary significantly, and there are multiple factors that go into determining this cost.
One such factor is the length of time of the surgery. The average length of time for a BBL is about 4 hours, but this procedure time differs from person to person, and there are many reasons for this. The limiting step in this process is removing fat–this takes 99% of the operative time and is determined by how large the patient is and how many areas need to be treated.
However, on the other extreme, a fragile patient may require longer harvest times by requiring liposuction of multiple body areas to scrape out the fat for a BBL. Once the fat is removed, we then look at how large of a buttock the patient desires, keeping in mind that only 35-40% of the fat aspirate volume collected is available for transfer.
In addition to the surgeon’s fee of a buttock enhancement, there are numerous other behind-the-scenes costs included in the surgical fee.
It quickly becomes evident that there is no cookie-cutter approach to your care, which is why there is no cookie-cutter price. The good news is that if there are no skin excisions planned, you can usually return to work as early as ten days after the procedure without compromising the results of the BBL and healing process. This means you don’t have to lose income from being out of work for prolonged periods.
When choosing a plastic surgeon for your buttock enhancement, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with them are equally as necessary as the cost of the surgery.
Although understandably, everyone has a different budget, there are financing options to make the surgery of your dreams a possibility. A plan must be made to address your specific desires so that you are not left with a botched BBL that must be redone for an additional surgical cost. You and your surgeon can work together to decide how to get you the best possible results at a reasonable price within your budget.
