A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is an in-demand body contouring procedure that takes fat from unwanted areas like the waist and puts it into the buttocks, creating an hourglass contour. The price of a Brazilian Butt Lift will vary depending on your unique goals and circumstances, but the total cost of typical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)will range from $9,300 to $10,000 at Dr. Basner's practice.

What's Included in Dr. Basner's BBL Cost?

When you ask, "How much does a BBL cost?" it's essential that you're comparing apples to apples. For instance, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons says the average BBL cost is $4,807. But that figure is just the BBL surgery cost. It doesn't include anesthesia or other related fees. Many other surgeons also provide only the BBL surgery cost, not the price for the entire procedure.

When Dr. Basner's practice quotes your BBL cost, you can be assured that it covers all your major expenses, such as:

  • Surgeon's fee
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Operating room fees
  • Supply costs
  • Follow-up appointments

If you get a low quote for your BBL cost from another doctor, investigate further to see exactly what that quote covers. You may be surprised.

Why Do BBL Cost Estimates Vary?

A primary reason BBL costs vary is that the estimates don't include the fees for the entire procedure. But the doctor's level of expertise, the geographic area where you have your surgery and the extent of your procedure also affect your total BBL cost.

Dr. Basner listens closely to you during your consultation and designs an individualized treatment plan to meet your goals. Your BBL cost reflects his efforts to ensure the best results possible.

Why Choose Dr. Basner for Your BBL?

Why Choose Dr. Basner for Your BBL?

Dr. Basner is the first choice for BBLs in Baltimore because of his vast expertise and attention to detail. He is recognized as a Top Doctor by Baltimore Magazine and is one of Newsweek Magazine's best plastic surgeons in America. Dr. Basner is also the chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Sinai Hospital.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Basner always prioritizes patient care. His technical experience, along with his artistic eye, means that he will contour your buttocks in a way that looks natural and fits your body shape, while still considering your goals.

What Does a BBL Entail?

A BBL is ideal for someone who wants to create a more shapely backside while at the same time reducing fat in another area. A BBL works by:

  • Using liposuction to take fat from places such as the waist, back or thighs
  • Purifying the fat
  • Transferring the fat into the buttocks to enlarge and reshape them

BBL Benefits

A BBL may often be less expensive than other buttock contouring procedures. Other benefits include:

  • Liposuction helps shape more of the body than just the backside
  • Your own fat is used, reducing the risk of rejection or reaction
  • BBL doesn't require large incisions, so you won't end up with large scars
  • No general anesthesia is required

Who Is a Good Candidate for a BBL?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is best for enhancing the shape and volume of your buttocks. It will not address loose, sagging skin. If your concerns include sagging skin on your backside, a lower body lift may be a better option for you.

You may be a good candidate for a BBL if you have:

  • Flat buttocks
  • Small buttocks size
  • Square shape or lacking shape
  • Excess body fat available elsewhere to transfer to your buttock

As with any plastic surgery, the best BBL candidates:

  • Are in good physical health
  • Are finished developing
  • Maintain a steady weight
  • Have realistic expectations

A BBL in Combination With Other Procedures

If you have several areas of concern, you may want to consider having other procedures performed at the same time as your BBL. Many of our patients also opt for:

Combining procedures can help you achieve the beautiful, natural look you want. It can also save money because you pay for just one anesthesia session. Plus, it can reduce your recovery period since you're recuperating from several procedures simultaneously instead of at separate times. This can be helpful for patients who have limited paid time off from their jobs.

Frequently Asked Questions About BBL Costs

As an experienced, well-regarded plastic surgeon, Dr. Basner is well-suited to answer your questions about BBL costs. Read the following questions to learn more, and be sure to contact us for additional details.

Does Health Insurance Cover a BBL?

Because a BBL is generally a cosmetic procedure, health insurance usually won't cover your BBL cost. Our financing options, however, put a BBL within reach for many clients.

How Long Does a BBL Last?

A BBL typically will last for years. You can preserve the effects of your BBL by maintaining a proper weight. Your results also will vary as your body ages.

Does a BBL Give You a Smaller Waist?

A BBL can contribute to a smaller waist if the transferred fat is taken from that area.

Does a BBL Go Away If You Lose Weight?

Because your body tends to lose weight proportionately, your weight loss should have a minimal effect on your BBL.
