A Butt lift is a form of plastic surgery, which is comprised of two distinct types. One type is the Brazilian butt lift, the other is the traditional butt lift. There are a specific factors to consider when deciding which of the two types is best for you. Typically, a patient will consult a plastic surgeon to discuss what are the options available based on the patient’s body type, and their desired expectations. Patients should be prepared to do their due diligence on the selection of a surgeon, their experience and the overall comfort level between patient and surgeon. In the Dallas, Texas area there are several board certified surgeons available. Ricardo A. Meade MD, Jeff Angobaldo MD, David Liland MD, or Sam Jejurikar MD are all viable options, each of which has performed many successful surgeries.
Butt lifts typical cost anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000. Traditional butt lifts, typically cost more than the Brazilian butt lift. Traditional butt lifts, are a much more involved surgery, requiring more extensive procedures. The Brazilian butt lift is not nearly as intense, nor does it require the surgeon to manipulate tissue, skin and muscle.
The Brazilian butt lift, is the more popular of the two. The Brazilian butt lift is cheaper and requires only fat transfer. The patient is required to have fat in other areas of the body. There has to enough fat in areas that can be transferred. During the transfer, some of the volume is lost during the processing phase. Typically it is preferred to harvest fat from less desirable areas of the body, like the back or stomach.
The traditional butt lift requires the surgeon to make one of four types of incision in the buttocks area. The surgeon is then required to manipulate skin, tissue, and muscle.
