Brazilian Butt Lift, also known as BBL, has quickly become one of the most sought-after procedures at Dr. Rodney Green’s Cleveland, Ohio plastic surgery practice. With years of experience in performing this surgery, Dr. Green has helped countless clients achieve the shapely buttocks they desire. In many cultures, the buttocks are an important secondary sexual characteristic, similar to the breasts. For many women, having a flat, masculine buttock can be as undesirable as having small breasts.
Brazilian Butt Lift Procedure
The Brazilian butt lift procedure involves removing fat through liposuction, then preparing and injecting it into the buttocks using special blunt cannulae. This technique is both safe and effective and is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery is done as an outpatient procedure, allowing you to return home the same day.
Dr. Green utilizes a gravity technique and mesh filtration to separate the fat from unwanted fluids in the liposuction aspirate. These gentle techniques efficiently improve the survival of large volume fat grafts used for buttock injection. When needed, Dr. Green can perform injections in excess of 1200 ml on each side.
To further enhance the procedure, Dr. Green uses a low-pressure suction device with a mechanical effect (Power-X) and a 3rd generation VASER Ultrasonic device. This advanced technology allows for larger volume liposuction with less pain while maintaining the viability of the fat for injection.
Recovering from Your Brazilian Butt Lift
Recovery from a Brazilian butt lift is a crucial part of the process, as it ensures optimal results and a smooth healing experience. After the procedure, you’ll need to take it easy for the first few days, focusing on rest and avoiding strenuous activity. You’ll wear compression garments on the liposuction areas, and you should limit pressure on the injected buttock for the first few weeks. During this time, use the complimentary pad provided to sit comfortably and protect the newly transferred fat. Dr. Green will provide you with specific post-operative instructions tailored to your individual needs. Most patients can return to work within 1-2 weeks, but strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for several weeks. It’s important to follow Dr. Green’s guidance on when it is safe to resume your regular activities. Full recovery can take up to three months, but you’ll be able to enjoy your beautifully enhanced curves for years to come.
