Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift

If you're self-conscious about the appearance of your buttocks, a Brazilian butt lift can create the curvy and feminine figure you desire.

Dr. Bernard Kopchinski is a board-certified surgeon who can enhance your appearance and boost your confidence with this procedure.

Find out how Prestige Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio, TX, can help you achieve your cosmetic goals with a Brazilian butt lift.

What Is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

​A Brazilian butt lift, commonly called a BBL, is a procedure that can add volume to your buttocks while tightening them and enhancing shape and size. Contrary to the name, a BBL is not a lifting procedure. For this treatment, Dr. Bernard Kopchinski uses a combination of liposuction and fat transfer to create fuller, firmer buttocks. By using your own fat tissue, we can ensure a natural-looking appearance that you'll love.

Dr. Kopchinski and his staff are the most professional people in the business. Dr. K takes his time with each potential client to fully explain any questions you have and make you feel comfortable about any procedure you are considering. Many other doctors tend to rush you or tell you your questions can be answered from their website. He is detail oriented in his work, and his results are, therefore, phenomenal! I trust Prestige Cosmetics to take care of me.

Are You a Good Candidate?

These are some of the factors Dr. Kopchinski will weigh when determining your candidacy for a Brazilian butt lift.

Good Overall Health

Patients must be in good overall health to be approved for plastic surgery. Certain medical conditions can increase the risk of complications occurring during or after surgery. Patients must also be nonsmokers or quit for a certain amount of time before and after surgery.

Good Skin Elasticity

It is important to keep in mind that BBLs are not intended to address sagging skin. An additional procedure may be needed to tighten the area, remove excess skin, and help you achieve the comprehensive results you're looking for.

Have Excess Fat Deposits

Since a BBL involves a fat transfer of your own tissue, patients need excess fatty tissue in easy-to-access areas, such as the abdomen or thighs. If you do not have enough tissue for liposuction, we may recommend an alternative treatment like implants to help achieve your goals.

Realistic Expectations

A Brazilian butt lift will enhance your figure, but it won't drastically change your body type. When patients go into plastic surgery with realistic expectations, they are often happier and very satisfied with the outcome of their treatment.

Achieve the Contours You Desire  Contact Us Today to Get Started

Brazilian Butt Lifts  Are Growing in Popularity


According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there were more than 28,000 Brazilian butt lifts performed in the United States in 2022.

Choose a Surgeon With Prestigious Credentials Dr. Kopchinski Has Achieved Fellow Status

When making a change to your appearance, you want a surgeon with experience, skill, and the credentials to back it up. San Antonio patients don't need to look any further than Dr. Kopchinski.

Board certification is a key indicator of a highly skilled plastic surgeon. Dr. Kopchinski achieved board certification in 2008, but he decided to take his credentials to the next level by becoming a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Fellowship denotes a superior level of surgical skill, knowledge, and ethics. 

The process for becoming a Fellow is rigorous. A prerequisite all potential Fellows must meet is board certification. On top of this, Dr. Kopchinski had to pass an intensive interview process, upload his case logs to prove his surgical ability, and obtain references from three current Fellows.

Preparing For Your Butt Lift

Dr. Kopchinski gives personalized instructions to each patient so they can be prepared for surgery and enjoy the best results from their butt lifts. The following are guidelines our plastic surgeon provides all patients before butt lift surgery:

  • Stop using tobacco products for approximately one month before your surgery and continue to not smoke for at least a month afterwards.
  • Stop using blood thinners like aspirin for two weeks prior to your butt lift, if possible. 
  • Stop using any diet pills or herbal medications you are currently taking. 
  • Do not eat or drink anything for eight hours directly before surgery. 
  • Have all recovery items suggested by our surgeon ready before the day of your butt lift. 

The Brazilian Butt Lift Process

In most cases, a BBL can be completed in about three hours at Prestige Cosmetic Surgery. Here are some of the steps you can expect during the treatment process:
To start the procedure, Dr. Kopchinski will administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort at all times. Your surgery will be performed at a fully accredited facility about 15 minutes from our San Antonio office.

Day of Procedure

To start the procedure, Dr. Kopchinski will administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort at all times. Your surgery will be performed at a fully accredited facility about 15 minutes from our San Antonio office.


To start the procedure, Dr. Kopchinski will administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort at all times. Your surgery will be performed at CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Hospital in Alamo Heights, San Antonio, a fully accredited facility about 15 minutes from our office.

Tumescent Injections

Next, our surgeon will inject a special solution containing medications to numb the treatment area. This will cause the fatty tissue to swell up, making it easier to remove fat with precision and comfort.


Your surgeon will make small incisions to access fat deposits in areas such as your abdomen, thighs, or back.


A very thin suctioning tool called a cannula will be inserted into the incisions to remove fat cells. Dr. Kopchinski skillfully maneuvers the cannula to remove fat and sculpt attractive contours without disturbing the surrounding tissue.


After the fat has been removed using liposuction, it must be processed and cleaned before it can be inserted into the buttocks via fat transfer. We use a device called a centrifuge to separate and isolate the fat cells from any other fluids. Once the fat cells have been cleaned and processed, they will be placed in small syringes for the final step of your BBL.

Fat Grafting

Our surgeon will carefully inject the fat into the subcutaneous layer of your buttocks, which is the layer of fat just under your skin. Dr. Kopchinski will inject the fat in multiple directions and at different depths to achieve a well-balanced appearance. A thin needle is used for fat transfer, allowing patients to have no scarring after treatment. Once we have used fat grafting to achieve contours that provide the results you want, the procedure will be complete.

Our Team Has Been Together For Years Allowing Us to Provide the Highest Standard of Care

Dr. Kopchinski has had many of the same highly skilled staff by his side since opening his private practice. We have built a trusting relationship with each other that allows us to provide optimal care for each patient. 

Many of our patients are so pleased with their initial results that they decide to receive additional procedures to improve their bodies. The cohesion of our team means you will be treated by the same friendly professionals throughout your Brazilian butt lift recovery and through any additional surgeries. 

Our office also receives frequent compliments from our patients. We strive to create an intimate atmosphere and stock our meet-and-greet room with complimentary snacks and beverages. We believe every aspect of the Brazilian butt lift process should be as stress-free as possible.

Recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift What to Expect

For optimal results, it is important to follow all of Dr. Kopchinski's postoperative instructions. Patients must refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise or activities until they are cleared to do so. Here are some other things to expect during your recovery:

Compression Garment

You will likely experience swelling and bruising after surgery, which is perfectly normal and expected. We will provide you with a compression garment to be worn for several weeks to reduce swelling and maintain the shape of your buttocks as they heal.


Patients will need to avoid sitting or lying on their buttocks for one to two weeks to avoid damaging the grafted fat. Additionally, avoid squatting or other movements that may stretch the treatment areas. Most patients are able to resume everyday activities in about three weeks.

Returning to Work

Most patients with a sedentary job can return to work in about one to two weeks. However, we encourage patients to take as much time off as needed for healing. Patients should use a standing desk if possible to avoid putting pressure on the buttocks.

Follow-Up Appointments

We will schedule several follow-up appointments at our San Antonio, TX, office to monitor your healing process and ensure everything is on the right track. This also allows Dr. Kopchinski to assess and determine which activity level is appropriate for you at the time.

Final Results

It will take four to six months to see the full results of your BBL. It takes time for the fat in the buttocks to fully settle and integrate with the existing tissue, but patients can notice a significant difference soon after surgery. You can maintain and enjoy all the benefits of your BBL by taking care of your body through exercise and a healthy diet.
