The Brazilian butt lift procedure is one of the hottest plastic surgery treatments today. Fortunately, Edina residents don’t have to fly south of the border to get a fuller derriere. Dr. Christopher Kovanda offers the Brazilian butt lift to his twin cities patients, giving them the hottest look right in their own backyard.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
This procedure, also known as autologous fat transfer, is performed by removing excess fat from one area of the body and injecting it into the buttocks for a more curvaceous backside. Fat can be taken from the area of your choice, including the abdomen, thighs, back or hips. The procedure offers the double benefit of sculpting away fat from one area while enhancing the buttocks for a more attractive body contour.
There are three basic steps to a Brazilian butt lift performed by Dr. Kovanda:
1. Liposuction – Usually performed under general anesthesia in a certified surgery center to offer patients the best safety, comfort and results, this procedure involves very small incisions that allow a narrow tube to be inserted directly into the fat deposit. The liposuction tube loosens fat tissue while gently suctioning it out of the body.
2. Fat Processing – Dr. Kovanda purifies the removed fat in a special machine to prepare it for the injection process. His goal in this process is to preserve as many good fat cells as possible so the grafting process is efficient and effective.
3. Fat Injections – Prepared injections are then placed strategically into the buttocks in similar fashion to soft tissue filler injections. In this case, however, a larger amount of fat is generally used to produce the volume in the buttocks the patient is hoping for.
The entire procedure is performed in a single treatment session. Although the process appears straightforward, success is dependent on the skill and experience of the surgeon performing the procedure. Dr. Kovanda offers the Brazilian butt lift and other fat transfer procedures with the highest standards of safety, efficacy and patient care.
Patients at Kovanda Plastic Surgery may choose to have a Brazilian butt lift as a single procedure or in combination with other plastic surgery to achieve even more dramatic results.
