If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift can create the curvy and feminine figure you desire. This procedure is highly customizable and can provide results for patients who want to alter the size or shape of their rear end. This advanced technique uses your own tissue, eliminating the risks associated with butt implants. At Prestige Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio, TX, Dr. Bernard Kopchinski can perform a Brazilian butt lift to enhance your appearance and increase your confidence.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that can add volume, as well as tighten and enhance the shape and size of your backside. For this treatment, Dr. Kopchinski uses a combination of liposuction and fat transfer to create fuller, firmer buttocks.
Is This Treatment Right for Me?
Brazilian butt lifts can address many concerns, such a flat or sagging buttocks, asymmetry, or other issues. If you are planning to lose a great deal of weight, you may experience better results by waiting until you have reached your desired weight.
Dr. Kopchinski can discuss your concerns and expectations during an initial consultation and determine if this procedure is right for you.
Since your Brazilian butt lift will involve a fat transfer of your own tissue, you will need to have excess fatty tissue in an easily accessible area, such as the abdomen, love handles, or thighs. If you do not have enough tissue for liposuction, this may not be the procedure for you.
It is important to keep in mind that Brazilian butt lifts are not intended to address sagging skin. You may need to undergo an additional procedure beforehand to address that issue. Dr. Kopchinski can discuss your concerns and expectations during an initial consultation and determine if this procedure is right for you.
Your Lift Treatment
A typical Brazilian butt lift is completed in about three hours. During the procedure, Dr. Kopchinski will first perform liposuction to gather the fatty material for transfer. He will make a small incision to access the fat deposits before gently removing them with a suction tool called a cannula.
Once the fat cells are harvested, Dr. Kopchinski will purify them to ensure only the best tissue is used for injection. Then he can inject the tissue at various depths. The number and depth of injections will depend on your desired results.
Recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift
For optimal results, it is important to follow all of Dr. Kopchinski’s postoperative instructions. You will likely experience some swelling and bruising after surgery. We can provide you with a compression garment to reduce swelling and maintain the shape of your buttocks as they heal.
You will need to avoid sitting or lying on your rear end for 1-2 weeks to avoid damaging the grafted fat while it integrates with existing tissue. Additionally, avoid squatting or other movements that stretch the treated areas. Most patients resume normal activities in about three weeks. However, refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise until Dr. Kopchinski clears you to do so.
