A Brazilian Butt Lift procedure in Houston costs $8,000 – $12,000 on average. The final price for your surgery will depend on the amount of fat that needs to be harvested from various parts of the body (i.e. trunk, arms, thighs, etc.).

For an accurate quotation, schedule a consultation now at +1 713-496-2427.


This procedure transfers fat harvested from areas of the body into the buttocks. Because the fat comes from your own body, it will integrate and plump up the buttocks naturally over time.

During surgery, liposuction removes fat from the chosen donor areas (namely the breasts, thighs, arms, or abdomen). The harvested fat is collected and separated to ensure only healthy cells are used for transfer. The fat is then reinjected into areas of the buttocks that require lift and reshaping.

In addition, butt implants can be utilized to further enhance the shape of the buttocks.


  • Surgery Length
    It typically takes 2 – 3 hours to complete a BBL surgery.
  • Anesthesia
    Brazilian Butt Lift is performed under general anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort during surgery.
  • Incision
    Incision or grafting sites will be marked with a surgical pen before surgery.
  • Sutures
    All incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches. Scarring is minimal and well hidden beneath your underwear or swimsuit.
