Cost of Brazilian Butt Lift
One of my favorite advertising campaigns was by Tiffany’s. They featured beautiful jewelry and also noted the price. It made me realize that Tiffany had items that even I could afford.
I have always been curious about plastic surgery costs as well. Haven’t you?

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A familiar name for a buttock enhancement or a butt lift is Brazilian Butt Lift. This buttock enhancing originated in Brazil, thus the name. According to a recent study, Brazil is second only to the US in terms of cosmetic procedures. In a recent article by Jonathan Kaplan, MD, a board certified plastic surgeon in San Francisco, he indicates:
It’s not clear if the Brazilian butt lift referred to a specific technique in Brazil, similar to how it’s not clear if the butt lift was meant to be a specific technique here in the US.
According to Dr. Kaplan, the Brazilian Butt Lift can be divided into 2 categories – a lift or enlargement. When it comes to a lift, these patients are unhappy with excess skin that has a significant sag. For patients concerned about a deflated buttock, enlargement is appropriate, usually accomplished implants or injections.
Before and After Pictures of Brazilian Butt Lift Procedures
Are you interested to see Before and After pictures of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure? In his article “The Brazilian Butt Lift — to lift or inflate?”, Dr. Kaplan provides detailed pictures of what can be accomplished. I think it’s best to view the pictures on his site as I don’t usually feature exposed buttocks on my site.
Important Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure Considerations
While there is nothing wrong with having an idea of what your cosmetic procedure may cost, always remember to keep this in mind:
- Price should not be your main consideration when choosing a surgeon for your cosmetic procedure
- Your plastic surgeon should be a board certified plastic surgeon. They will evaluate your buttock shape and discuss the best technique for you.
- You need to confirm you are a candidate for surgery
- Consider all risks before proceeding
- Make sure your procedure is done in an accredited facility, not a hotel room, beauty shop or party setting
