A more experienced and esteemed plastic surgeon that specializes in Brazilian butt lift and receives a high demand from patients will probably charge a higher fee. This is why the particular procedure is overwhelmingly surgeon-dependent. That being said, though, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends that patients should select the most appropriate surgeon for the cosmetic procedure they need to undergo, rather than make a decision based on the surgeon's fee. This is because working with the most qualified surgeons, who usually cost more up-front, will indeed save you expense in the long-term, considering that they tend to provide exceptional outcomes with a much lower risk of complications.
The study’s authors conducted a study among 989 respondents who shared their views and preferences of the gluteal region. The most attractive buttocks hip-to-waist ratio was deemed to be 0.65 by 44.2% of respondents, and 25% of respondents were of the opinion that 0.6 was the most attractive ratio. Both ratios indicate the potential for a shift towards more dramatic implants, resulting in a “curvier” final result.

Apart from the plastic surgery itself, the patient would also need to consider extra costs that are not included in the price quote they receive. These can comprise of the cost of prescription drugs the patient may need to take, the surgical garments required for after the surgery, and the costs of medical tests if necessary, among others. It should be noted, though, that some plastic doctors exclude the anaesthesiologist's fee and operating room charges from their quote, so it is always recommended to read the small letters or ask what's included in the offered package so you can have the right overall cost estimate for the Brazilian buttock augmentation.


Spread of toxin effects. The effect of botulinum toxin may affect areas away from the injection site and cause serious symptoms including: loss of strength and all-over muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision and drooping eyelids, hoarseness or change or loss of voice, trouble saying words clearly, loss of bladder control, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
After care from the experts was pretty simple and didn’t require anything too strenuous. To keep results looking optimum I’m told to avoid things such as smoking, excess alcohol, sun exposure and getting stressed - which can all help break down collagen faster, decreasing the longevity of Botox. ‘I always recommend that my clients use a daily antioxidant topical serum and an SPF 50 too,’ advises Spyrou.
For me, the main area of concern is my forehead, which I’m told by all the greatest in injectables, to be the most common for those under thirty. After too many holiday sunburns, and recognising that I speak with very expressive eyebrows, the fine faint lines horizontally across my forehead have become much more prominent. So, in the name of beauty journalism I decided to give botox a try, here's what I learnt...
The cost of living is different among different geographical locations. In general, the cost of cosmetic surgery tends to be higher in areas of the country where the cost of living is high. For example, a practice located in Los Angeles will change more for a buttocks lift than a practice situated in San Francisco due to the higher cost of living index, which affects all kinds of services and goods in that area, including plastic surgery services and related costs (see cost of anaesthesia and operating room below). Likewise, a practice in, say, India or Turkey, will perform a butt augmentation at a lower cost than in Paris (from $2,400 vs. $7,300 respectively), while a patient opting to have a butt lift in Switzerland will be called to pay, at least, $6,600 for the liposuction alone.
During your search for a surgeon, keep in mind that “as with any cosmetic procedure, the price should not be the primary factor in choosing your surgeon,” Orlando, Florida plastic surgeon Dr. Armando Soto, says in a RealSelf Q&A. “This is not to say that less expensive surgeons are uniformly going to deliver poor care, just that the costs should be secondary to your overall sense of comfort and confidence in the surgeon you choose.”
After the procedure, patients are taken to the recovery room for a few hours and then released from the facility. Patients must come with a friend or family member in order to be driven home and cared for at all times during the first three days after surgery. If the patient does not have a friend or family in the area, for an additional cost, Jolie offers recovery houses for patients who have undergone a procedure.
As with any medical/surgical treatment, individual results may vary. Only a surgeon/physician can determine whether reconstruction or augmentation>is an appropriate course of treatment. The following are general adverse events associated with breast implant surgery: Device Rupture, Capsular contracture, Infection, Hematoma/Seroma, Pain, Reoperation, Implant removal, changes in Nipple and Breast Sensation, unsatisfactory results, breast-feeding complications. Other reported conditions are listed in the Product Insert Data Sheet (PIDS). See full list in the PIDS for the product information. These potential adverse events, including contraindications, warnings, and precautions need to be discussed with your doctor prior to surgery.
I needed very little convincing before making my way down to the Cadogan Clinic, one of the very best locations in London (might I add) to speak to Nurse Libbie Wallace, a master in her field. After filling in a short consultation form, Nurse Libbie asks me how old I am. After replying 28, she chuckles a little, but continues… I’m not the youngest client she’s had walk through the door, but she does tell me that she would only ever treat those that actually can benefit from the treatment, ‘It’s important that I manage patients expectations’.
Like lasers, IPL goes below the surface to a deeper layer of skin called the dermis. Short pulses of light heat and destroy cells to start renewing your skin. Unlike a laser, IPL uses a broad spectrum of light that can treat different kinds of  blemishes at the same time. The treatment is usually painful, so ask your doctor how you can be more comfortable.

Your surgeon can discuss your incision options with you to help you choose which type of traditional butt lift will suit your needs. Although traditional butt lifts do leave scars, your doctor will work to limit the length of your incision and place it in a less visible area. In addition to lifting, your surgeon may be able to augment your buttocks during these procedures with a butt implant, by repositioning your excess tissue in a more flattering way, or by transferring fat from other areas, as in a Brazilian butt lift.
At this point, opinions vary. Some doctors seem to agree that having a tummy tuck and a Brazilian butt lift simultaneously is the recommended way so that the patient does not have to undergo a second surgery and second-time anaesthesia. Also, costs are less if those two surgeries are performed in one go. Other surgeons suggest the butt lift and tummy tuck are done separately. This is because the recovery after a tummy tuck involves the patient remains in any flexed or bent position at the hips while the recovery after a butt augmentation requires that the patient reduces the pressure applied to the butt region, as much as possible. So, for a patient that has had both procedures at the same time, it will be difficult to find a position that makes them feel comfortable. The rest of the plastic surgeons recommend the patient has the butt lift first, where fat is aggressively being removed from the waist and abdomen, and then schedules to have a tummy tuck to address the loose skin in the trunk and the abdomen after they have recovered from the butt lift.
This procedure involves fat elimination through liposuction from several areas of the body such as the hips, abdomen, back and thighs. During the liposuction, the Plastic Surgeon will make minimal incisions and extract only the smallest fat particles using a small tool called a cannula. Doctors have found that the most effective fat grafts are made using smaller fat particles. During this same step, the doctor begins the contour process to create the desire figure.
Smoking has a negative impact on the way your blood moves essential oxygen and nutrients to the various parts of your body. During your BBL recovery, the fat moved into your buttocks forges connections with your blood stream. Smoking directly interferes with this, making it harder for your body to form new blood vessels, and significantly reduces the quality of the blood that does make it to the new fat cells.

A simple trick you can try that's remarkably effective at keeping you from putting too much pressure on your new butt while sitting is to use a towel. Roll the towel into a cylindrical shape, then put it under your thighs as you sit down, keeping your weight off your buttocks. Just be careful that you don't cut off the blood supply to your butt, which can also contribute to fat cell death.
The patient’s anatomy – It’s easier to reach satisfactory results on patients that have an A-shaped buttock than on patients with a V-shaped buttock, which usually require more fat transfer. Each person’s bottom can only receive some specific amount of fat. Typically, the surgeon will transfer a generous amount of fat during surgery since not all the fat transplanted will survive.

When most people think about breast enhancement options they typically think of breast augmentation surgery. While there are many women who wish to increase the size of their breasts (breast augmentation continues to be the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the U.S.), there are also many women who seek to reduce or reposition their breasts without adding extra volume.
Don't be afraid to ask questions. Make a list of questions you want to ask your physician and bring it with you to your Botox consultation. That way you won't forget what you want to ask. Ask how much the treatment will cost, how many units of Botox you will need, how long the he/she has been giving Botox injections, etc. Ask about side effects, risks, and how you should take care of your skin after Botox and how often someone with your skin condition should get Botox.
Just like most other surgical procedures, there are complications and risks that are involved with the Brazilian Butt Lift. Because this procedure involves a fat transfer and liposuction to achieve a more attractive and youthful look, both of these techniques have their own set of risks including asymmetry, hematoma, infection, embolism, overcorrection, prolonged swelling, fat necrosis, under-correction, and nerve damage

The most commonly asked combined procedure is that of the tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) and Brazilian butt lift, which is particularly favored by women that have just become mothers and want to get into a sexier version of themselves after giving birth. On average, a tummy tuck ranges from $7,500 to $9,500 and you may negotiate a discount with your plastic surgeon if you decide to have both procedures performed at the same time.


Directly following your butt lift, you may feel groggy and disoriented, especially if you have been under sedation or general anesthesia. Your buttocks will also most likely be swollen and bruised from surgery. For this reason, you will need someone to drive you home from your procedure and take care of you. Before you leave the surgeon's office, you will need to:

Where do you perform this procedure? Some plastic surgeons have hospital privileges at local facilities, while others perform procedures in their own offices. If your prospective surgeon works out of an independent clinic, make sure the office is accredited, meaning that it meets standards set by organizations like the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Saline-filled breast implants contain a silicone outer shell filled with a sterile saltwater (saline) solution. Some are pre-filled and others are filled during the implant operation. Saline-filled implants come in different sizes and have either smooth or textured shells. The FDA approved saline-filled breast implants for breast augmentation in women age 18 or older and for breast reconstruction in women of any age. They are also used in revision surgeries, which correct or improve the result of an original surgery.
Allergic reaction to medications or materials. If you are allergic to the gloves, sutures, gauze, drugs, or any other substances used during your butt lift, you may develop an allergic reaction. This could cause redness, rashes, hives, irritation, or other uncomfortable symptoms. To minimize your risk of allergic reaction, discuss your medical history with your plastic surgeon at your initial consultation. He or she may be able to use different materials to accommodate your allergies. If you do experience an allergic reaction, this should abate within a few days to one week.

It is certainly possible to lift a breast without changing the volume or removing any tissue, however, the breast will sometimes appear smaller after this procedure due to its position. It is also possible to reduce breast volume without lifting the tissue (usually via liposuction) but all reductions that are performed by making incisions will also include a lift.
51 percent: the proportion of butt lift patients over age 40, according to information from American Board of Plastic Surgery's 2009 data. 33 percent of patients were between ages 30 and 39, while just 15 percent were between 20 and 29 years old. This suggests that many patients use butt lift procedures to combat the effects of aging, although they can help patients at many ages.
Just like most other surgical procedures, there are complications and risks that are involved with the Brazilian Butt Lift. Because this procedure involves a fat transfer and liposuction to achieve a more attractive and youthful look, both of these techniques have their own set of risks including asymmetry, hematoma, infection, embolism, overcorrection, prolonged swelling, fat necrosis, under-correction, and nerve damage

Similar to endermologie, your cosmetic surgeon may be able to use light or ultrasound technologies to stimulate collagen production, improve your skin elasticity, and help break apart stubborn fats. During treatment, your doctor will move a small device over your body, strategically targeting the affected regions to enhance your buttocks' shape and size. These methods may be a viable alternative for patients who want to subtly improve their figures, do not have large fat deposits, and are willing to undergo multiple treatments over a longer period of time to see results. It will not add volume to the buttocks or remove drooping skin and tissue.
Excessive bleeding. Due to improperly sutured incisions, poor healing, or anticoagulant medications, your wounds may bleed excessively. Refraining from strenuous activity for the first month after your butt lift can minimize your risks for bleeding. Depending on the severity of your condition, excessive bleeding may require additional surgery or blood transfusion, although this is not common. Traditional butt lifts carry a higher risk for excessive bleeding than Brazilian methods, given the size and placement of the required incisions.
During these first two weeks some minor swelling and discomfort is normal. You should be able to control any pain with ibuprofen or your prescriptions. Be sure to stick to only these medications for controlling your pain. Medicines like aspirin or Advil can thin your blood, which can cause complications in the new blood vessels forming within the fat transfer.
Butt lift surgery can be a complex and personal process, so finding the right plastic surgeon is important. In addition to having the expertise and experience to provide you with excellent results, your surgeon should make you feel comfortable and listen to your concerns. Thoroughly researching your options and asking the right questions can help you find a surgeon to suit your needs.

While you can read about all of this online, it's best to hear it straight from your doctor's mouth. Also, ask about what your doctor will do on the off chance that something goes wrong with your Botox treatment. If you have significant bruising, will he give you a discounted v-beam laser treatment to minimize the bruising? If you end up with Spock brows, will he fix them free of charge? What if your Botox wears off in a week, will he give you an additional touch-up for free? Do not be afraid to ask questions! It's better to have answers before than after.
