3-Minute Read:

Many women are frustrated with the lackluster size and shape of their backsides. And while exercises can help you firm up your butt, not everyone can achieve their desired goals with exercise alone — especially if your goals involve fuller, rounder buttocks. 

However, plastic surgery procedures can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, and there is no better option for patients looking to add size, shape, and volume to their buttocks than a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).

While a Brazilian Butt Lift offers stunning and flattering results and helps you better fill out the bathing suits and dresses you’ve always wanted to wear, you may find yourself asking several questions about this procedure. And one of the most common queries we receive about this surgery is: “How much is a Brazilian Butt Lift?” 

This blog will explore this question to help you understand what really contributes to the cost of your cosmetic procedure.

What Exactly Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

Brazilian Butt Lift surgery is a procedure that utilizes fat transfer to augment and enhance the size, shape, and volume of the buttocks. With this procedure, liposuction surgery (360 lipo) harvests fat from the circumference of your body, including the abdomen, hips, and lower back. 

This fat is purified and then strategically injected into your buttocks. 

You can achieve natural or significantly noticeable results after your BBL, and the best part is that no foreign object or substance is being placed in your body. Additionally, Dr. Porshinsky is a highly experienced BBL surgeon specializing in large Brazilian Butt Lifts that actually give you the fullness you want to flaunt.

What Goes Into the Cost of Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?

While it can be frustrating, plastic surgery procedures have no set menu price. Instead, the cost of procedures like a Brazilian Butt Lift varies with each patient and procedure. This is due to numerous factors, including:

  • The extent of the procedure (the amount of fat harvested and transferred to the buttocks)
  • Whether your Brazilian Butt Lift is being combined with any other body contouring procedures
  • The geographic location of your procedure 
  • Medication and follow-up appointments

What Am I Paying for With My Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery Cost?

Regardless of the type of cosmetic surgery you are undergoing, you will be required to pay certain fees. While these fees often fluctuate based on the specific plastic surgeon who is performing your procedure, these costs will be included in every patient’s overall bill:

Surgical Fee 

The surgical fee is a price set by your plastic surgeon. With this cost, you are paying for the plastic surgeon’s time and labor. This price is often affected by the surgeon’s experience and expertise.

Anesthesia Fee 

In addition to the plastic surgeon, an anesthesiologist will be present during your Brazilian Butt Lift to administer the anesthesia and oversee your health and progress during the procedure. 

Additionally, this fee includes the price of the anesthesia. Brazilian Butt Lift is generally performed under general anesthesia, which costs more than local anesthesia.

Facility Fee 

The facility fee is a catch-all for the cost of everything needed during your procedure. This includes the cost of using the clinic or hospital room, nursing care, staff, and any materials and drugs used during the procedure.

How to Know Your Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?

One of the most important aspects of any cosmetic procedure is the consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Porshinsky will evaluate your condition and create a surgical plan tailored to you. You will be given a cost estimate for your specific procedure at this time.
