On a rare occasion, there is too much sag that an implant and/or fat grafting can not overcome. This is very similar to the breast when a breast lift is needed. In these instances, a butt lift is performed. The surgery can also be combined with either a butt implant or fat grafting to the butt. Again, this is very similar to breast surgery when both an implant and a lift are utilized.
What type of patients typically need a butt lift? Typically, patients that have lost over 100lbs and have “loose or elastic skin” require a butt lift.
The cost of Brazilian Butt Lift is dependent on two things:
So what does this mean as far as price? The typical range for a Brazilian Butt Lift is $7,500 to $9,500. In order to get an exact price, we need to to first perform an in-person consultation.
As far as the question regarding your measurements of going from 36-30-40 to a 36-30-46:
Hello, and great questions!
Yes! Your fat can be sucked out your tummy (and from anywhere for that matter) and then injected into your butt to give a voluptuous shaped butt.
Surgeons may differ in how this procedure is priced. I will typically give one price that is an all inclusive quote for the liposuction (Up to 5L which is the outpatient maximum) of the torso (Tummy, flanks, back, and thigh) to shape the butt and create an hour glass figure and to then process, inject, and sculpt the butt. The specific price is dependent on the amount of liposuction and fat grafting that will be performed.
I hope that helps; best of luck!
I think the absolute minimum for fat needed to make fat grafting worth your while is 600cc per side or a total of 1200cc of viable post-processed fat. This means that there must be at least 2.5 liters of fat that can be removed; and for most people this is not a problem.
Another option to think about is the combination of butt implant and fat grafting to the butt to achieve an extremely round projected butt with an hour glass figure. This is my next option I recommend if I do not think there is enough fat to augment the butt with fat grafting alone.

Fat Transfer to the Butt
Return to Work:
Hello and great question. After fat transfer to the butt, I do not want my patients to sit on their butt for the first week (except when going to the bathroom). The second week you can sit on your butt for short times to eat. At the 3 & 4 weeks mark I gradually start lengthening the sitting. After 4 weeks, there are no more sitting restrictions.
I do think that sitting on your butt for that long at a time during the early course of the recovery can and will influence the amount of fat that survives and the can potentially change the shape of your buttock.
