After the all-important safety conversation, when you research the Brazilian butt lift, a lot of the recovery restrictions revolve around telling patients and prospective patients they cannot sit down drive, or put any type of pressure on the buttocks for up to a month. “This is because many surgeons use the old syringe injection technique when they perform fat grafting to the buttocks,” explains Houston, TX, plastic surgeon German Newall, MD, who performs a good amount of the popular procedure at this facility. Here’s what he has to say about what makes the technique so imperative to the recovery process, as well as the overall well-being of the patient:
What is your roller-pump fat-grafting technique and what makes it different from a traditional BBL?
The use of a pump makes the fat distribution smoother and more reliable since fat cells are not damaged by the shearing forces that syringes will create.
How does it help patients sit down from day 1?
The distribution is uniformly done throughout the buttocks/trochanter unit, therefore no placed fat is to be displaced when applying pressure (such as sitting down).
How does incision placement factor into the success of the results?
Avoiding inferior buttock incisions is safer since you can’t get into the sciatic foramen where all the important vessels are which can be damaged.
Does sitting or sleeping a certain way alter the shape or longevity of the fat injected during a BBL?
The roller-pump technique maximizes fat distribution throughout the buttock/trochanter unit and any pressure applied will not matter much.
What is one piece of advice you have for potential BBL patients about the procedure?
The roller-pump technique is the safest and most reliable buttock enhancement procedure.
