Maximize Fat Survival Following Your BBL Surgery
In today’s ever-growing world of surgical enhancement, the Brazilian butt lift has become quite easily the most popular procedures amongst women across the world (and in some cases, men as well!). to perform such a procedure, surgeons will have to use a technique known as a fat transfer – andin that sense, the BBL is essentially a two part procedure. This is indicative of the BBL surgery cost, as it takes into account the patient achieving a liposuction of a common problem area such as the midsection, as well as a buttock augmentation allowing them to increase the size and improve the shape of their backsides. According to Dr. Sergey Voskin, considered the best plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, works by first removing fatty cells from a problem area such as the midsection. Then once that fat is removed, it is then treated in a certain purification method, and then injected into the patient’s buttocks to increase the size and improve the shape. However, one of the bigger issues with this procedure is the fact that, despite the fat coming from within your own body, in the majority of cases, not all of the fat will “take” and much of it will be rejected by the body – sometimes as much as 30%. This is often a big issue for patients, especially when you take into account the BBL surgery cost, many patients feel as though they haven’t gotten all that they deserve from the procedure. The important fact for patients to understand though is that this is simply natural and there is nothing even the best plastic surgeon could do about it to stop it completely. Despite this issue however, there are a few things that can help to ensure that the least amount of fat is lost as possible. Here are some important steps you can take to ensure the maximum fat survival.
· The Proper Clothing
First and foremost, according to Dr. Voskin, the best plastic surgeon in NYC, its important for patients to wear the proper shaping and compression garments. These garments will support your post-procedural healing. However, make sure they are not too tight, as that will kill the fat faster.
· Brazilian Butt Lift Massage
One of the most integral aspects of the post-BBL process is your BBL massage. The BBL massage is a standard procedure in which a masseuse who specializes specifically in performing the Brazilian butt lift massage, rubs the buttocks down, and without pushing too hard, slowly molds the shape into the position that not only looks the best and feels the best, but the BBL massage also helps to ensure the fat is molded into such an area that it has the highest chance of surviving possible. Interestingly enough, the Brazilian butt lift massage is performed following pretty much every type of fat transfer procedure – including the breasts, and even the facial fat transfers.
· The Stem Cell Butt Augmentation
While the stem cell butt augmentation is technically an entirely different procedure, and not so much an aftercare maneuver, it is an important variation on a traditional BBL and can help retain much of a patient’s fat. When it comes to a stem cell BBL, it is the same as the traditional at first. Liposuction is performed, as usual, however, rather than simple purification of the fat your doctor will add PRP or platelet rich plasma to the compound before injecting it. In essence, the stem cell butt augmentation blends PRP therapy into a conventional BBL. This is done by withdrawing the patient’s blood, and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma and stem cells, from the remaining blood. These stem cells and PRP, are then added to the fat and injected into the buttocks just as they normally would. This a stem cell BBL, it is quite similar to the BBL surgery cost wise and procedurally, aside from the addition of the PRP substance.
· Feeding the Fat
This is an important aspect of the aftercare treatment program, as it’s vital for patients to eat a lot more calories while they recover. In order to sustain the extra work of providing those new fat cells with blood supply and recovering from the surgery. Eating nutrient-dense foods will provide your body with all the vitamins and minerals it needs to support its recovery. Adding in more healthy fats in your diet will be helpful during your recovery. This is the same for patients having a traditional BBL or a stem cell BBL done. Try adding avocados, salmon, grass-fed butter, almonds, walnuts, extra virgin olive oil, and coconut oil.
· Sits on Your Thighs
While this might sound a bit ridiculous, after you have a BBL done, it is important to learn to keep your weight off of your buttocks for some time, and this can cause a lot of fat loss over time. The best thing a patient can learn to do is to keep their weight more forward, and not as far back within their seat.
