Closeup of womans butt in jeans laying on her sideFor many women, a curvier, more voluptuous bottom is something they can only dream of. It’s difficult to get the perfect bottom to complete your silhouette by only doing weekly squats at the gym. If you’ve done all the right things to lift and accentuate your butt, but have fallen short, a Brazilian butt lift might be just what you need to get the look you’ve been wanting. But before making the final decision to undergo plastic surgery, you might want to know how long your Brazilian butt lift results will last. Keep reading to learn more.

What Is A Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian butt lift uses fat from a patient’s own body to create lift and volume to their buttocks. Dr. Hopkins first removes fat through liposuction from another area of the body, which is typically a problem area. He then prepares the extracted fat and injects it into the buttocks to provide a more desirable gluteal shape for his Dallas patients.

But How Long Will My Results Last?

It’s completely understandable that you want to know how long your Brazilian butt lift results will last. After all, no one wants to spend a large amount of money on plastic surgery only to have to undergo the procedure again a couple of years down the road.

Good news! For most patients, Brazilian butt lift results are long lasting. That is, as long as you follow Dr. Hopkins’ post-op instructions carefully. Though not all of the transferred fat cells will survive, on average Dr. Hopkins patients experience 60%-80% fat retention. There are several other factors that will determine the success of your Brazilian butt lift, as well as the longevity of your results, including:

Weight loss or Weight Gain

If you lose or gain weight after your Brazilian butt lift, you will naturally lose, or gain weight in your buttocks. However, your overall body shape will remain balanced.

Cooperation of The Patient

It is important that each of Dr. Hopkins’ Dallas patients follow his pre-op and post-op instructions to ensure their Brazilian butt lift results will last as long as possible.

Smoking Habits

If you are a smoker, there is a good chance your butt lift results will not last as long as someone who is a non-smoker. This is because smoking restricts blood vessels and you need nice, healthy blood vessels during and after a butt lift procedure. A healthy blood supply is what the transferred fat cells will attach to, and if yours are restricted due to your smoking habit, the longevity of your results will be affected.

Patient Qualifications

The ideal Brazilian butt lift patient will have an adequate amount of fat able to be transferred to the buttocks. Even if you are trim and fit chances are you will have some area of your body that Dr. Hopkins will be able to use for the fat transfer.
