Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with Fat Injection
Serving Patients in Cleveland and Lyndhurst, OHBrazilian Butt Lift, or Buttock augmentation has become an increasingly popular procedure in Dr. Rodney Green’s Cleveland Ohio Plastic Surgery Practice. He has had many years of experience with this procedure from the early days when this began to be popular.
The buttocks are in many cultures a very important secondary sexual characteristic, similar to the breasts and for many women having a flat masculine buttock is just as bad as having small breasts.
Fat removed with liposuction is prepared and then injected with special blunt cannulae. This technique is both safe and effective and is done under general anesthesia. The surgery is done as an outpatient procedure and you go home the same day.
Dr. Green has been using a gravity technique to separate the fat from the unwanted fluids in the liposuction aspirate. This gentle technique is efficient and seems to improve the survival of the large volume fat grafts used for buttock injection. Dr green does injections in excess of 1200 ml each side when needed.
Dr. Green uses a low pressure suction device with a mechanical effect (Power-X) rather than laser or ultrasonic devices which damage the fat cells and reduce the survival of the injected grafted fat.
After the procedure compression garments are used for the areas that are harvested with liposuction, and pressure on the injected buttock is limited for the first few weeks to help the graft “take” in its new location. It takes about 3 months for the final results to be apparent.
