The butt lift surgical procedure is either a traditional or Brazilian. The Brazilian is the most popular, due to it not being as expensive, not as intense a surgery, and only involves fat transfers. Traditional butt lifts requires the surgeon to physically lift the muscle underneath the fat, tissue and skin. Traditional butt lifts are typical more expensive than the Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Sam Jejurikar’s Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Kevin Light, or Dr. Laurence Weider’s Plastic Surgery clinic are reputable plastic surgeons in the Dallas area.
When it comes to butt lifts, they typically can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000, and are highly dependent on the region they are performed in. Some patients may choose to fly to a regions that offer a more affordable surgery, but patients should consider flight tickets, hotels etc… before choosing this option.
When it comes to the traditional butt lifts, surgeons strongly recommend patients exhaust all natural measures before deciding to undergo surgery. A Traditional butt lift is a major surgery requiring the doctor to cut the patient to access the muscle in the buttocks in order to actually move and lift the muscle, or tighten it up. The surgeon will make one of four incisions to access the muscle. The upper, lower, butterfly or lateral. The upper, is cut along the top of the buttocks and the lower is cut along the lower portion of the buttocks. The butterfly cut is an incision made in the middle of the buttocks, while the lateral is made on either left or right side of the buttocks. Typically the lateral incision leave the least amount of scaring.
The Brazilian butt lift yields a more natural look, and it doesn’t require anything but the patient’s own fat. The Traditional butt lift gives the surgeon more freedom while sculpting the buttocks.
