What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a cosmetic procedure that uses advanced liposuction and fat grafting techniques to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks and achieve a younger and perkier contour. Men and women who come in for a Brazilian butt lift consultation typically desire slimming down their abdomen and flanks while simultaneously increasing the size of their behind. This procedure may be done alone or may be combined with the use of butt implants for an additional boost of volume and contours. Dr. Cara Downey is a leading board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston who continuously performs hundreds of successful butt lift procedures on men and women all across eastern Texas.
How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost in Houston, TX?
The average cost of a Brazilian butt lift in Houston typically ranges between $8,000 and $12,000. The total cost for your Brazilian butt lift will depend on factors such as your surgeon’s fee, the location of your procedure, and other miscellaneous medical expenses. At Heights Plastic Surgery, we accept cash and all major credit cards. We are also happy to offer financing through CareCredit® for patients. Because a Brazilian butt lift is typically more about cosmetic appearance and is less of a medical necessity, it is not covered by most insurance plans.

How is a Brazilian Butt Lift Performed?
A Brazilian butt lift is an outpatient procedure that typically takes about two to three hours to complete. To begin, a general anesthetic will be administered to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free throughout your surgery. Dr. Downey will then perform gentle liposuction to remove fat from the chosen donor areas of the body, typically the breasts, thighs, arms, or abdomen. The harvested fat is collected and purified to ensure only healthy tissue and cells are used for transfer into the buttocks. The fat is then strategically and carefully injected into areas of the buttocks that require lift and reshaping. Butt implants may be used at this time to enhance the results of your Brazilian butt lift procedure. All incisions will be closed with dissolvable sutures to minimize scarring.
What Can I Expect During My Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery?
For the first 24 hours following your Brazilian butt lift, it is normal to experience some pain, soreness, swelling, and bruising around your treated areas. Dr. Downey will provide you with prescription medication that can help manage your pain. You will also be asked to wear a surgical compression garment to reduce swelling and promote proper healing. It is important that you refrain from sitting on your bottom or lay on your back for two to three weeks following your Brazilian butt lift. Doing so may compromise your expected results.
Patients typically report returning to work and normal daily activities after about four weeks following their Brazilian butt lift treatment; however, it is important to wait until given clearance from Dr. Downey. While many patients are able to see some visible results immediately following surgery, ultimate results will become apparent after all swelling and bruising have faded, about three to six months later.
