Average Cost of a Brazilian Butt Lift?

I want to get a butt enhancement in December for a more shapely look. Can anyone tell me what the average cost for this type of surgery is? I want to know what to expect at my initial consultation with one of the doctors in my area (I live in Nashville). Would you recommend getting plastic surgery in another state to reduce the cost of the procedure?

According to my Memphis area surgeon, the average Brazilian butt lift without implants costs about USD 10,000. Mine was around the same price. Your primary goal is to identify an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to perform the Brazilian butt lift procedure. Look for someone who’s performed many Brazilian butt lift surgeries. Ask friends and family to refer plastic surgeons and then book a complimentary consultation with each one. Don’t choose a plastic surgeon because he or she quotes a lower cost. 

Of course, don’t assume that a surgeon who charges more does better work. You’ve got to do your homework. Prepare questions before each consult. As you learn more about the Brazilian butt lift procedure, refine your questions. For instance, if the doctor mentioned another procedure for which you’re a candidate, discuss this idea with another surgeon if it interests you.

If you find a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to perform the Brazilian butt lift procedure in Tennessee, there’s no reason to go across state lines to save money on the procedure cost. This is an elective surgery. The best way to get the results you want is to hire an experienced Brazilian butt lift surgeon. Arrange financing with your lender if necessary or ask the surgeon about options offered to pay over time.

The average cost of a Brazilian butt lift is $6000 to $15,000. The price is based on each patient's unique situation and is dependent on the simplicity or complexity of the operation. This price includes full abdomen liposuction, waist, full back or any other area that is used to obtain the fat needed for relocation to the buttocks. This price would also apply to a Brazilian butt lift that is completed with implants or silicon. 

The Brazilian butt lift consultation is a thorough visit. The doctor will listen to your desires and physically examine you. Professional recommendations will be made based on your height, weight, shape, age, desired outcome and overall health. This is the perfect opportunity to have sculpting and reshaping completed on other areas of your body with liposuction. 

The surgeon's recommendations will be based on your unique body shape and contouring requests. If you do not the have excess fat needed for fat transfer to your buttocks, implants may be suggested. 

Nashville has some of the best, board-certified, cosmetic surgeons available in the United States. The price of BBL is approximately the same across state lines. The most important thing is to find a board-certified doctor that is conveniently located for follow-up visits, and remember that you will need a local friend or loved one to assist you on the day of the surgery and during your first days of recovery.

The cost varies significantly depending on the amount of liposuction and fat transfer that is necessary for your particular case. Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL) can range from $6000-15,000, with most costing around $10,000. I would certainly not recommend going to a doctor simply because they're cheaper. I would find a board certified plastic surgeon who does a significant number of BBLs each year and has the before/after pictures and video testimonials to back up their claims. Good luck!
