The average cost for a Brazilian butt lift ranges from $12,000 and up and depends on how many areas of liposuction are performed and how much fat is being transferred. In order to obtain an accurate price for your surgery we advise meeting with Dr. Bandy for a complimentary consultation.
The patient has multiple financing options. For example, the patient can pay for the surgery on credit card, and make monthly payments back to their credit card. Additionally, CareCredit is a financing company specific for cosmetic surgery; patients can apply for CareCredit, and there are multiple options for CareCredit. Sometimes, patients opt to make payments directly to the office. This is a prepayment plan where a patient would pay until he or she pays the entire balance for the surgery; then, they would have their surgery.
Patients that undergo a liposuction procedure are usually required to wear a compression garment for several weeks to achieve maximum results. Patients may get bruising to the treated areas of the body that can last for several weeks.Bruising can be minimized with arnica and bromelain supplements started pre-operatively and continued through the healing process. Pain can be controlled by medication that is prescribed at the time of the pre-operative appointment which is usually 2 weeks prior to the scheduled surgical date. In addition to the recovery from the liposuction, there will be a recovery from the fat being transferred. Because the gluteus maximus is a large muscle, patients will experience some discomfort when sitting or placing any pressure on that area, as well as discomfort when using those muscles. This discomfort should subside within the first week after the procedure, however, patients will still be encouraged to reduce pressure to the gluteal region during the healing process.
We do have a post operative recovery facility that we refer our patients to in Orange County, CA and Los Angeles, CA. In these situations, they will be picked up by the post operative care facility from our recovery room and brought to the recovery center where they are recovered overnight, and then brought back the next day for their follow up appointment.
