Liposuction may seem fairly simple, but the truth is that it can be quite tedious, and requires a high degree of precision and skill. You have everything to gain by seeking a surgeon who excels specifically in liposuction. If that surgeon happens to use advanced technology to carry out the procedure, this could also be a strong indicator that the doctor is especially passionate about liposuction and body contouring, and could be more likely to provide you with satisfying long-term results.
It is almost impossible to provide an accurate estimate of liposuction price unless the surgeon has had the opportunity to examine the patient. One can expect to be given a range of liposuction prices or at least the smallest fee charged for a specific area. For example, if Dr. Jones always quotes an all-inclusive global price, then, for example, the receptionist should be able to state that “for abdominal liposuction, the minimal price is $4000 and may be as much as $8000 for a very large abdomen”.
‘You’ll start to see an effect after 3-5 days’, instructs cosmetic doctor Rita Rakus, ‘however it may take two weeks for maximum results to kick in’. For me, my forehead had less movement after day three, but it wasn't until a full week after the treatment that it felt completely immobile. It’s definitely a strange sensation as you go to lift your brows…but nothing moves.
During this procedure, your surgeon will make an incision into your buttock to manually remove thin layers of fat (too much surplus fat will make you ineligible for this procedure), tissue, and skin. He or she may also tighten your underlying muscles and create sutures deep within your tissue to hold your now-smooth buttocks in a lifted position. There are four basic types of traditional butt lift procedures, based on the incision the surgeon makes to correct your ptosis (sagging):
This technique of injecting the fat into the buttocks can be performed either with 1) manual injections or 2) with an injection pump. For 15 years I have performed manual fat injections, as I believe this technique is safer than the use of high pressure pumping techniques. With the manual injection technique, the fat is placed (or transferred) to the buttocks in hundreds of injections with special cannulas. Small amount of fat (2cc-5cc) are injected with each injection pass.
"I was drawn to Dennis Hurwitz, MD, for three reasons," my patient Tara explains. "First, his years of helping both men and women achieve results that made them feel better about themselves. Second, my consultation with him was informative. He was engaged the entire time, answering each and every question knowledgeably and honestly. Third, considering his reputation, the pricing was more than reasonable."

LO adecuado para hacer un presupuesto es examinar a la persona y de esa forma hacer un proyecto quirúrgico, considerando el tipo de liposccion a realizar, tiempo que tomara realizarla, tipo de anestesia , capacidad de la piel para retraer adecuadamente, etc... Puede oscilar entre 7000 a 9000 usd pero con la evaluación se hace el verdadero presupuesto.
Thank you for your question. This is a difficult question to answer because there is not a set price for liposuction. Price should not be your determining factor for choosing who does your procedure. Your first question should be is this individual properly trained? Are they a board certified plastic surgeon? How many of these procedures do they do? Also, what is the technique that they are going to use? Prices are usually determined by the location that you want treated and the facility you are having the surgery. We do have a policy of giving larger discounts when there are multiple areas being treated at the same time. Please remember higher prices do not always equal a better result, but the lowest price may not be the best decision either. This is a decision that should be based on trust and experience.
The BBL procedure can be performed under IV Sedation or General Anesthesia. However, I believe that IV sedation is a better choice for patients undergoing a Brazilian butt lift. This anesthesia nearly eliminates the pulmonary risks that are associated with General Anesthesia. Besides that, patients wake up much sooner than they do with General Anesthesia, and experience very little nausea. To learn all about why I prefer the use of monitored IV-sedation anesthesia instead of General Anesthesia, see my blog post about the types of anesthesia used in cosmetic surgery.
There will be a few weeks of recovery you will experience after your Brazilian butt lift, as you would expect after any plastic surgery procedure. The main thing you will experience is soreness and swelling at the sights where fat was injected or removed. These areas may also experience some discoloration and bruising as well. You will experience some pain and soreness immediately following the surgery, but this should subside within a few days. You should be able to return to work, assuming it is not a job that involved rigorous physical activity, within two weeks or sooner. During your recover phase, your doctor will have you wear a special compression garment that will help the healing process. After about one to two months, you should experience a full recovery from any pain, swelling, bruising, and soreness, and you should be able to resume intense physical exercise.
Now that the donor fat has been collected, it is ready to be processed and purified before reinserted into the buttocks. This is where the plastic surgeon acts as a true artist. The fat will be inserted into many different areas of the buttocks at different depths and different locations. The surgeon will use many small, precise injections into different areas. The surgeon will take each individual patient’s specific instructions into consideration. Some women may need more fat placed on the lower portion of the butt, to create the “bubble butt” look, for example. As the doctor injects the fat, he will use massage techniques and feel around to make sure the fat is evenly distributed and smooth around the entire buttocks. This process takes a while, but the end results are well worth it.
2. Facility Fee. The building where you have the surgery (Surgery Center or Hospital) has associated costs. You want to make sure the center is appropriately accredited (e.g. AAAASF for surgery centers). The facility maintains all of the instruments, supplies, and equipment used during the operation. This also covers the costs of the nurses, technicians, and other personnel that take care of you before and after surgery. The facility fee alone should cost more than $2,000.
She advises me that there are many conspiracies around botox- staying up right for more than two hours, is false for starters. ‘The solution takes 20 minutes to settle in your muscles, so I do advise you to stay upright for then, any longer wont make a difference’. She does however advise me not to undertake exercise that’s too strenuous or hot following the treatment (fine by me) and to carefully wash my face when I get home, not scrubbing or rubbing too hard.
A Brazilian butt lift not only provides a smoother, perkier, and more voluminous backside, but it also offers a variety of body contouring benefits. When liposuction is performed on different areas of your body to harvest fat for the butt lift procedure, you can achieve a flatter abdomen, trimmer thighs, and sleeker silhouette. While a Brazilian butt lift is typically more expensive than butt implants, it enables you to achieve your desired results without using any foreign substances. In addition, Dr. Greenberg’s extensive experience and dedication to patient satisfaction makes it a worthwhile investment.
Due to a number of PFE complications recently reported in Florida and other states, several surgical societies formed an Inter-Society Gluteal Fat Grafting Safety Task Force. This Task Force includes Board Certified Plastic Surgeons from ASPS, ASAPS, ISPRES, and IFATS, and has selected 19 members from it's worldwide membership to study what factors influence the safety of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. I am honored to have been chosen as one of 19 members of this important Task Force team. Since 2017, the Gluteal Fat Grafting Task Force has analyzing the reported complications and autopsy reports so that we can issue safety guidelines for the procedure. In the summer of 2018, our team performed cadaver dissections to further evaluate different injection techniques. Results will be forthcoming
After they are removed, the fat cells are purified using a centrifuge and only the best tissue is used for injection into the buttocks with tiny cannulas (tubes) at various depths for a natural look and feel. The number, depth, and amount of injections depend on your surgeon's particular techniques and your desired results, but generally, a greater number of smaller injections provides a more realistic look. This step of the surgery typically requires just local anesthesia, as well, but can be performed under general anesthesia or sedation if needed. The final result is a rounder, fuller behind that looks natural because, unlike butt implants or synthetic fillers, it uses your own tissues. This procedure can usually be completed in approximately two hours.
PAL uses an up and down, vibrating-like motion of the cannula to acquire greater fat removal. When compared to simple suction-assisted liposuction, PAL requires less energy for the surgeon to operate while also resulting in greater fat removal. It is commonly used for difficult, secondary, scarred areas, and when harvesting large volumes of fat for transfers to other areas.
It’s important to understand exactly what your doctor’s quote includes. Does the number only include your surgeon’s fee? Or will it cover anesthesia, hospital fees, pre- or post-op appointments, and medications you’ll need throughout your recovery? If your doctor’s estimate doesn’t consider all those costs, be sure to factor them into your budget. Also be sure to ask how your surgeon handles revisions, in case you aren’t happy with your initial results.
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.
