Butt augmentations, or butt lifts, can performed on anyone who is unhappy or unsatisfied withe their buttocks. Candidates may also just want more definition to the area. Whatever the reason, it is important to know all the details before deciding to get a Brazilian butt lift. A butt augmentation is a surgical procedure that can be performed in several different methods. The Brazilian butt lift firms and raises the butt more subtly than a classic butt lift, which creates a much more dramatic look and uses implants. In Dallas, places like the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute and Farah Naz Khan, MD Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery do both kinds of procedures. Butt lifts generally have a few requirements. You must be both physically and mentally healthy before deciding to undergo the procedure. You also must refrain from using alcohol or tobacco around the time of the surgery. Having excess skin or fat in the buttocks, and maintaining a healthy and stable weight is also helpful. If you want to have Brazilian butt lift, liposuction from another part of the body needs to be done, and the surgeon will need to remove three-four times the amount being transferred into the buttocks. Dr. Bill Johnson from Innovations Medical in Dallas says that the fat is usually taken from the inner thighs or abdomen. The cost of the surgery ranges from 2,000 to 10,000 dollars, depending on the type of surgery, amount of experience of the plastic surgeon, location of where the surgery will take place, type of equipment used, and the cost and amount of medication. In Dallas, the surgery will likely cost around 6,500- 8,000 dollars. Loans or finance plans can be taken out to help offset the cost, although interest will be added on.
