What a $9,000 Brazilian Butt Lift Looks Like | The Plastics | Harper's BAZAAR
If Los Angeles is the plastic surgery capitol of boob jobs, Miami is the epicenter of butts. And nobody knows butts better than Dr. Constantino Mendieta. He’s the go-to plastic surgeon in the area for one of the hottest treatments in cosmetic surgery: Brazilian butt lifts.
Brazilian butt lift is just a snazzy marketing name for a procedure that involves meticulous liposuction and fat transfer. Fat is sourced from the lower back, abdomen, and sometimes the arms and thighs, sucked out, then injected into the butt through tiny incisions. The surgeon fills and shapes the entire region, giving a more defined waist and sculpted butt and hips in the process. It’s not just about making your butt look bigger—you get smaller, too.
We followed one woman on her Brazilian Butt Lift journey with Dr. Mendieta. Watch above to get a peek at the surgical process (if you’re into that kind of thing), but stay until the end to see her incredible before-and-after photos.
Thank you to Dr. Mendieta at Miami Plastic Surgery.
