Plastic Surgeon Christopher Knotts, M.D. Aims to Bring Brazil to Washington DC With the Brazilian Butt Lift

Austin-Weston Center Cosmetic Surgeon Christopher Knotts, M.D. Wants to Make the Brazilian Butt Lift as American as Apple Pie

RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - July 21, 2014) - Christopher Knotts, M.D., the newest plastic surgeon at the Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA, has a goal: to make the Brazilian Butt Lift as much of a household name as the Brazil-hosted World Cup.

"The `Brazilian Butt Lift' is a term that originated in Brazil, where bikinis, beaches, and body-consciousness are a way of life," explains cosmetic surgeon Knotts. "A curvy, high buttocks area with a small waist is an essential part of the Brazilian bikini body. The Brazilian Butt Lift was developed to enhance this very feminine shape.

"Patients often come to me knowing they want larger and more shapely buttocks, but they're not sure of the best way to achieve that," says New Mexico native Knotts. "They see pictures of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, and wonder if they're the result of implants, or nature, or something else. The answer is that I don't know if these women have had surgery, but I can work with you to come up with a surgical plan to meet your goals.

"Some of my Brazilian Butt Lift patients also tell me that they don't want the shape and size as dramatic. They are really looking to just fit better in clothing. My response to this concern is always the same -- I will work with patients to give them the aesthetic outcome they want. It's all about the patient's happiness, and looking the way they want to look."

Dr. Knotts and his fellow surgeons at The Austin-Weston Center don't typically utilize molded silicone buttock implants as a first choice in buttock augmentation. "In our experience, these implants aren't necessary to achieve a curvy, lifted look. The alternative-performing liposuction of the lower back or flank area, purifying this fat, and then injecting this fat into the buttock area-is safer and accomplishes the goals with less risk," says Dr. Knotts.

The surgical incisions for the typical Brazilian Butt Lift are quite small -- approximately 4mm-and well-hidden, says Dr. Knotts. "There are usually a couple of these incisions just above the buttocks in the lower back area but low enough to hide beneath a bikini, and sometimes just underneath the fold of the buttock to perform fat grafting there.

"It's really a gratifying procedure for patients and for me as a plastic surgeon," concludes Dr. Knotts.

Cosmetic surgery consultations with Dr. Knotts are free and by appointment at The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA, located 20 miles from Washington, DC and 7 miles from Dulles International Airport.

Dr. Knotts will host a cosmetic surgery seminar at The Austin-Weston Center on Saturday, August 2, from 12pm-2pm. Media wishing to register for the seminar, or to arrange an interview with Dr. Knotts, should contact Genevieve Kopel 703-230-2537 or [email protected]. Members of the public who would like to attend the free seminar or schedule a cosmetic surgery consultation with Dr. Knotts should call 703-893-6168.
