BBL cost is one of the first topics patients want to discuss at their Brazilian butt lift consultation appointments. After all, if the surgery is too expensive to begin with, many patients are ready to leave right then and there.
While we can’t disclose exactly how much your BBL will cost (because we simply can’t know until we meet with you), we can provide some guidance on the leading cost factors. Many patients find that their BBL is actually affordable for them once we break down each expense and provide information on possible financing options.
How Much Does a BBL Cost?
For the most part, BBL surgery cost can be broken down into five major costs. There may be other costs in addition to these, depending on your circumstances. But in general, these are the five that you should be aware of:
1. Surgeon’s Fee
Plastic surgeons set their own fees. This fee will include all of the costs associated with performing your procedure, in addition to fractions of the costs associated with running their practice (utilities, employee salaries, equipment and supplies, etc.).
The scope of your surgery will also influence this expense. For example, if your particular goals dictate that you must undergo liposuction in multiple areas, this will drive the surgeon’s fee up vs an operation that only requires lipo in one area.
2. Fees Associated with Operating Room Facilities
The surgical facility where you undergo your operation will also charge for the use of their location, operating and recovery rooms, staff, equipment, technology, supplies, and general care.
3. Anesthesia Cost
Costs associated with anesthesia are usually affected by who your anesthesiologist is, what type of anesthesia you receive, and how long your operation is. Although BBL complications are rare, they are more likely with longer operations that require general anesthesia.
Even a slightly higher risk can result in a higher cost. BBL costs go up in general for longer, more involved procedures.
4. Cost of Additional Procedures
If you want other plastic surgery procedures performed at the same time as your Brazilian butt lift BBL surgery, this will naturally increase the cost of your surgery. Most patients don’t get other butt procedures at this time, but may be interested in additional liposuction, fillers, etc., which can sometimes be combined with your BBL.
5. Aftercare Expenses
Lastly, during your BBL recovery, you may need to pay for things like prescription medications, compression garments, massage, special recovery pillows, and more. In addition, remember that if you work, you’re going to have to take time off from your job to recover.
Some patients also incur additional costs because they sign up for meal services or get in-home care for a short time. These are optional choices, but they will indeed drive up the cost of your surgery overall.
How Much Does a Skinny BBL Cost?
Your “skinny” or “mini” buttock enhancement cost will not necessarily be lower than for a regular Brazilian butt lift surgery. This is because the same overall procedure will be being performed. You can expect the same cost factors for a mini Brazilian butt lift or a skinny Brazilian butt lift.
Will Health Insurance Plans Cover BBL Surgery?
No, this is unlikely. BBLs are aesthetic, or cosmetic, procedures. Insurance will not cover these associated costs.
FAQ: Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery
How long does a BBL last?
This depends on multiple factors. First, it is important that an adequate amount of fat survives the fat transfer procedure. Next, it’s important that you maintain a healthy weight and the same overall body composition.
Drastic weight loss or gain may change the fat composition on your body. In general, results from a BBL procedure can last for many years.
How do I find a BBL surgeon?
Many plastic surgeons perform Brazilian butt lifts. However, you want to be sure to find one who is board certified and has experience performing these cosmetic procedures.
