For a buttocks augmentation procedure with minimal risk and natural-looking results, patients may want to consider a buttocks fat transfer. Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center offers this and other body surgery procedures to patients living in Washington, DC, Arlington, and surrounding communities of Maryland and Virginia from our offices in Vienna, Woodbridge, and Rockville.
What is a Buttocks Fat Transfer?
A buttocks fat transfer, commonly referred to as a Brazilian butt lift or BBL, is a method of enhancing the buttocks using a technique called fat transfer and injection. This treatment involves harvesting excess fat from an area of the body with liposuction, purifying it, then injecting it into the buttocks to enhance its size and shape. Buttocks fat transfers are becoming a popular alternative to butt implants and other buttocks augmentation techniques because they require significantly smaller incisions, meaning less scarring. The results are subtle, with a natural look and feel.
How Much Does a Buttocks Fat Transfer Cost in Washington, DC?
The average cost of a buttocks fat transfer procedure starts at $8,000, but can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. To schedule any treatment, we ask for a $1,000 deposit that is nonrefundable. Two weeks before surgery, the patient will have a pre-op appointment where his or her full balance is due to be paid in full.
We offer flexible financing options, including Alphaeon® and CareCredit® to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. Alphaeon® and CareCredit® pay us in full and the patient pays the financing company a monthly fee. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is the Buttocks Fat Transfer Procedure Like?
The first step in a buttocks fat transfer procedure is harvesting fat from the body through liposuction. Patients often choose to remove fat from the stomach, hips or thighs in order to contour these areas in the process. After the fat is collected, it is purified to prepare it for injection. Then, fat is injected into the buttocks to enhance its size and shape.
Are There Any Risks Associated with a Buttocks Fat Transfer?
One of the many benefits of a fat transfer treatment is that it exclusively uses fat from the patient’s own body. This minimizes the risk of rejection and other side effects that are often associated with surgical procedures.
What is Recovery like Following a Buttocks Fat Transfer?
A buttocks fat transfer requires less recovery than butt implants and other buttocks augmentation procedures. Still, patients may experience some swelling and bruising for several days following treatment. Although you will be able to resume work and other activities sooner than with other treatments, we recommend that patients avoid putting significant weight on the buttocks for a few weeks. As such, sitting, especially for work, can be difficult and may require you to take some time off.
