What Is The Cost And Recovery From Liposuction And Butt Augmentation?

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I would like information on liposuction and butt augmentation. I would like information on estimated cost and recovery time. Thanks I hope to hear from you soon.

A:  Thank you for your inquiry. The questions you have asked are broad with different options and make your questions impossible to answer without being very procedure specific. I would need to know more specifics about what exact liposuction and buttock augmentation procedures you desire.

1) What areas of fat removal by liposuction are you seeking? How many different body areas?

2) For buttock augmentation, is it by implants or fat injections?

This information is vital because much of the costs of surgery are based on the time that it takes to do them. For the sake of the most common method of buttock augmentation, which is fat injections from abdominal and flank liposuction harvests (aka the Brazilian Butt Lift), I will have my assistant pass along some costs to you later today for this approach. Those costs will range between $6500 and $8500 depending on how much liposuction is done/needed. This combination has the dual advantage of contouring multiple body areas by reduction of body areas around the buttocks which makes any buttock size increase look even better. Depending on the type of work that you do, I would anticipate a minimum of 10 to 14 days until you get comfortably back to most normal activities of daily living.
