Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Cost in Philadelphia

If you’re considering a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, you may be researching how the procedure works, its results, and the recovery time. You may also have many questions about the benefits, average cost of a Brazilian butt lift in Philadelphia, and factors that can impact the price. At LUMEN, the cost is always all-inclusive and contains no hidden fees. We outline factors to consider and questions to ask when getting an accurate projection of the final price. Above all, we encourage patients to weigh the quality of the surgeon and practice.

What Is a BBL?

A BBL is also known as a buttock lift or natural buttocks enhancement because we use your own fat for a natural look and feel. We often refer to a BBL as a “two-in-one” body contouring procedure because it involves liposuction to harvest the unwanted fat (also known as fat grafting) from other areas of the body. Then, a fat transfer to your buttocks is done in small, strategically placed locations. By melting and removing fat cells from a donor area (typically the abdomen and flanks), the waist becomes tighter. This effect draws more focus to a fuller, rounder bottom and forms a more pronounced hourglass shape figure. A BBL is considered a minimally-invasive procedure since only small incisions are needed, and downtime is very minimal.

Men and women who want a fuller, shapelier backside can benefit from a BBL. Many women choose a Brazilian Butt Lift and other body contouring procedures (such as SmartLipo and natural breast augmentation for a “mommy makeover” to help restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. A BBL procedure can also bring back a youthful figure after a significant weight loss.

What Factors Impact the BBL Cost in Philadelphia?

The price of a buttock augmentation procedure can vary, and we consider many factors when providing a quote. These include:

Surgical Fees and Assisting Medical Team

First and foremost, you want a highly skilled and experienced team who uses the latest technology and body contouring techniques.​

Anesthesia Fees

Local anesthesia is typically used for outpatient procedures. Some practices offer general anesthesia with an anesthesiologist at a surgery center, especially if traditional liposuction (a more invasive surgical procedure) is used in conjunction with a BBL.

Other Procedures Performed and Number of Areas of the Body

Often, patients prefer treating another area of the body or multiple areas in the same session. You may also want to combine your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure with a laser liposuction procedure or Breast Augmentation. Many practices tend to discount multiple areas or combination cosmetic procedures, which could be lower than doing separate procedures for different areas.

Renuvion Skin Tightening

Renuvion is an optional procedure often combined with Smart Lipo as a finishing effect to tighten and tone the treated areas. Many use it for a tummy tuck effect, but it can be used on various areas of the body and further promotes collagen production.

Compression Garments

After the procedure, you will need compression garments to reduce swelling, promote your body’s healing, and help you achieve the best results possible.

Follow-up Care Appointments

These visits are important to ensure your healing is progressing and help you minimize side effects.​ The Lumen Center provides exceptional follow-up care up to a year after your procedure to ensure we see progress in your recovery and results.

BBL Surgery Cost Regional Price Differences

Finally, regional differences can also be expected when obtaining quotes. For example, the cost of performing a surgical procedure in Philadelphia is less than in New York City.​

At The Lumen Center, we provide all-inclusive pricing and no hidden fees. You’ll have an accurate projection of the final price at your initial consultation. Ensure your surgeon provides a written quote for the full BBL price, and all of the surgical fees are included.

What Is the Cost of Choosing the Wrong Surgeon for Your BBL Procedure?

We caution many people about “budget” procedures or traveling outside the country for a Buttock Augmentation. Many patients experience disastrous results and unsafe conditions. Working with a qualified surgeon will ensure your safety and provide you with the desired results.

A Brazilian Butt Lift is an intricate, involved, and artistic procedure that requires time and expertise. Below are some of the unfortunate outcomes we have seen from low-quality, low-cost providers:

As you can imagine, a low-cost provider could cost you more in the long run, and corrective surgeries may be needed. The quality of the surgeon should always be considered over price.

How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average BBL cost is approximately $5,000. However, they state that this figure is only part of the BBL surgery cost – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities, or other related expenses. According to a survey conducted by RealSelf, the average BBL cost is higher ($6,650) but could be higher depending on the area of the country.

Is a Brazilian Butt Lift Worth the Cost?

Is the cost of a BBL worth it when you’re looking to achieve an ideal body symmetry? If you want a slimmer, more sculpted body that gives you a beautiful S-shaped curve, a butt augmentation could be the solution for you. A BBL is an investment in yourself, and our patients consider it life-changing and well worth the money. You’ll gain more confidence, a flattering figure, clothes that fit better, and the body you’ve always wanted. And that’s priceless.

Yes, we offer competitive BBL pricing and a variety of financing options to make your cosmetic procedure more affordable with easy monthly payments. We have partnered with PatientFi, Care Credit, and United Medical Credit to provide direct financing options. No interest options are available, and you can prequalify for your upcoming butt augmentation procedure. We can help you select the right payment plan that fits your budget and make your new body goals possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

A natural buttocks augmentation using fat grafting is ideal for healthy men and women who want a fuller, shapelier backside while slimming down areas with excess fat. It is also a great solution if you want to:

  • Improve the appearance of flat or sagging buttocks
  • Slim down other areas of the body containing unwanted fat
  • Correct issues such as asymmetry or uneven buttocks
  • Create more symmetry with small or disproportionate buttocks to the breasts or hips

A fat transfer makes the buttocks look and feel as natural as possible. Your fat is soft, organic, and enduring, especially compared to artificial butt implants that can look and feel fake. Fat transfer also leaves little to no scarring and has a short recovery time, whereas implants require open plastic surgery, sutures, and general anesthesia. An added benefit to a fat transfer butt augmentation is a slimmer donor site (usually the flanks or abdomen). Also, a BBL is generally considered a safe cosmetic surgery because it uses your body’s own fat. There is always a chance that your body will reject implants or cause complications.

We perform the BBL as an outpatient procedure at The Lumen Center office in Bryn Mawr, PA (just outside of Philadelphia).

Absolutely! Once we finish our assessment, we’ll discuss your goals and how best to achieve them. Often, patients pair a Brazilian Butt Lift with SmartLipo 360 (liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and lower back). We can also discuss cosmetic surgery procedures for other areas of your body, such as natural breast augmentation or a facelift.

We can almost always perform a BBL, even if the patient is thin. Sometimes, we have to harvest fat cells from multiple areas of the body to get the desired augmentation effect. This process is known as a ‘skinny BBL‘ and can be performed on healthy adults with a BMI under 25. We‘ll discuss our approach, your customized plan, and the skinny BBL cost during your free consultation.

The recovery for a Brazilian Butt Lift is fairly short and very easy compared to more invasive plastic surgery. Most people find they need a long weekend to recover, typically taking 3-4 days off from work. Pain medication is provided for associated discomfort, and bruising is common. A compression garment must be worn over the areas where the fat was taken for one month.
