What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to boost the volume of the buttocks to create a curvier and more prominent silhouette. To add fullness, fat is harvested from other parts of the body, then used for fat transfer to the buttocks.

The first stage of a Brazilian butt lift surgery involves carrying out liposuction close to the bottom to remove and harvest fat for fat transfer. By slimming down the thighs, waist, and hips, the rear automatically looks larger, and once the excess fat that has been harvested is added via fat transfer, the results are staggering.

The fat that has been taken from the back, waist, hips, or thighs is injected into the buttocks, usually the upper part, and then the injected fat is blended to produce a rounded, streamlined shape. The fat transfer will continue until your board-certified plastic surgeon is happy with the results.

The buttocks will then be dressed and left to heal.

Why Do People Have Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery?

Brazilian butt lifts have become increasingly popular in recent years. For many people, the driving force behind the decision to have a Brazilian butt lift surgery is a lack of confidence.

If your derrière is flat, or aging or changes in your weight have caused the skin to appear saggy, rather than perky and firm, you may feel self-conscious when wearing fitted trousers or figure-hugging dresses or skirts. A Brazilian butt lift is designed to enhance the shape of the body and to make you feel more confident so that you can dress how you want and feel comfortable in your own skin.

Recently, there has also been a great deal of media attention on the Brazilian butt lift, and society has embraced and celebrated a curvier, more voluptuous physique. Influencers, celebrities, and singers who are renowned for their curves and shapely figures have inspired many people to embrace their natural shape or to consider making changes to achieve a fuller butt, such as a Brazilian butt lift surgery.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, demand for buttock augmentation has doubled in the US in the last 6 years. In 2019 alone, over 28,000 procedures were carried out by plastic surgeons in the US.

How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?

If you’re thinking about having a Brazilian butt lift surgery, it’s natural to have questions about the cost of the procedure. A Brazilian butt lift in Mexico is less expensive than treatment in the US or the UK, and the difference can be significant.

Why Are Plastic Surgery Prices So Much Lower in Mexico?

If you’re reading this guide, you may be wondering how it’s possible to achieve such sizable savings on your Brazilian butt lift cost by undergoing treatment in Mexico. There are several reasons why it’s cheaper to have a Brazilian butt lift in Mexico than in the US. These include:

  • Overhead costs and expenses: running costs are much lower in Mexico, which means that we are able to offer our clients exceptional plastic surgery treatments at affordable prices. From heating and air conditioning to equipment and property costs, fees are significantly lower in Mexico than in the US, meaning a cheaper Brazilian butt lift cost compared to the US.
  • Training and education: further education is also cheaper in Mexico than in the US, which also impacts your Brazilian butt lift cost. In the US, you’ll often find that an experienced BBL surgeon will charge a premium, especially in urban areas and hot spots like Los Angeles. The cost of training and studying to be a surgeon is lower in Mexico, meaning you can take advantage of plastic surgery treatment provided by highly-skilled, experienced surgeons for less.
  • Supplies: at VIDA Wellness and Beauty, we use many of the same branded supplies as clinics in Europe and the US, but the cost of medical supplies is considerably lower.

Is Mexico a Good Place to Get a BBL?

Mexico isn’t just a vacation destination but a fast-growing medical tourism location that men and women travel to for effective, affordable Brazilian Buttlift (BBL) surgery.

Plastic surgery in Mexico is safe and effective when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon at an accredited facility. In order to become a plastic surgeon in Mexico, doctors must complete extensive training and pass rigorous exams, and surgery facilities need to be cleaned and checked regularly.

If you’re interested in having a Brazilian butt lift in Mexico, we will invite you to attend a BBL surgery consultation or organize a virtual appointment. During your Brazilian butt lift consultation, your doctor will provide you with a written estimate.

  • The surgeon’s fees: in many cases, surgeons with more experience with Brazilian butt lifts and those who are renowned in their field will charge higher fees.
  • The location of the clinic: fees for cosmetic surgery can vary hugely depending on where you are in the world and whether you choose a facility that is based in a big city or an area where high-profile plastic surgeons tend to operate. London’s Harley Street and Beverley Hills in LA are good examples. If you have treatment here, you can expect fees to be higher.
  • The extent of pre and post-operative treatment required: some Brazilian butt lift clients may need more intensive or extensive pre or post-operative care than others, and this will be reflected in the price.
  • Recovery: some plastic surgery clinics offer facilities for aftercare and recovery, which will increase the cost.

If you have a consultation for a Brazilian butt lift package, it’s always beneficial to have questions prepared so that you can make sure that you have all the information you need to make a decision. Good examples of questions related to the cost of a Brazilian butt lift surgery include:
