What Are Butt Implants?
Buttock implants are specialized silicone implants used to improve the overall shape, size, and feel of the buttocks. Butt implants are nearly always made from silicone gel, unlike breast implants that are also available in saline and silicone variants. The silicone gel inside our buttock implants provides a soft, yet firm form that allows them to keep their original dimensions even after insertion. Dr. Cara Downey and Dr. Jamal Bullocks are board-certified plastic surgeons with nearly 15 years of experience with plastic and cosmetic surgery. Through this, they craft many successful and life-changing butt implant surgeries every year for patients in the greater Houston area.
How Much Do Butt Implants Cost in Houston, TX?
The average cost of your butt implant procedure in Houston typically ranges between $5,000 and $8,000. The total cost for your butt implant procedure 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 butt implant procedure is typically more about cosmetic appearance and is less of a medical necessity, it is not covered by most insurance plans.
How is a Butt Implant Procedure 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 or Dr. Bullocks 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 Butt Implant 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 or Dr. Bullocks 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 laying 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 or Dr. Bullocks. While many patients are able to see some visible results immediately following surgery, ultimate results will become apparent after all swelling and bruising has faded, about three to six months later.
