During the procedure, patients are under general anesthesia or IV sedation to keep them comfortable and pain free.
The butt augmentation procedure takes about two hours to complete, but time will vary depending on the technique used and if any other cosmetic surgeries are combined with the procedure.
You won’t be able to sit down immediately after the procedure, and sitting on the buttocks should be avoided as much as possible for the first two weeks. This is especially important for patients who undergo the fat transfer technique for butt augmentation.
Most patients can return to work and other normal activities after about two weeks of downtime.
With all butt augmentation techniques, some swelling will obscure the final results of the procedure for a couple of weeks. Final results are usually visible about one month after the procedure. Fat transfer patients will experience partial absorption of the grafted fat during the first three weeks following the procedure and should wait at least three months before deciding whether additional volume is desired.
Pricing varies depending on the extent of the treatment or surgery. You can see a list of the approximate prices of each procedure on our current fee schedule. Dr. Agullo charges a consultation fee of $100, which is applied to the cost of your treatment. Generally speaking, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective” and is not covered by most insurance plans. The prices listed on our fee schedule represent the minimum cost of the procedures, including anesthesia and surgical facility fees, medical tests, garments, and recovery products. The cost of prescription medications, however, is not included. The exact price of each procedure can only be determined after a thorough consultation. All fees must be paid in full prior to the scheduled treatment.
