what is a Fat Transfer Massage?
At Goals Plastic Surgery, the Brazilian butt lift has exploded in popularity of late – with hundred of patients inquiring about the procedure each and every week! While in years past, procedures like a tummy tuck or breast lift or facelift reigned supreme within the plastic surgery world, however as times have changed, as has the tastes of society. Formerly, the backside and hips were considered to be somewhat of an afterthought, but with women and men far more receptive to “naturally” appearing curvy bodies, it seemed to slowly shift – from magazine covers, Instagram posts, and the women on TV and movies all of a sudden have larger, far more shapely buttocks.
So it’s not surprising that the increase in Brazilian butt lift procedures across the world. Another one of the major reasons for the popularity of the BBL has got to be how it works, essentially being a far more natural option of a fat transfer – making use of your own body’s fat, as opposed to unnatural foreign substances such as an implant or even some injectable filler material such as Juvéderm or Restylane. A fat transfer not only looks and feels more natural, but it is highly desired by most men and women across the world. The BBL isn’t the only procedure that falls under a fat transfer either, in fact fat transfers can be done all around the body to give men and women more volume along their face, breasts, calves and more. And one of the things that links all fat transfer procedures is that during their aftercare period they all generally will require follow up appointments, at least a few of them, depending on what specific procedure and how severe your level of correction or enhancement might have been. And these common follow up appointments will all generally have a fat transfer massage taking place, sometimes known as a lymphatic massage when there is drainage that needs to happen. However, a fat transfer massage is vital to getting the best results out of any fat transfer procedure, especially when it comes to the BBL or Brazilian Butt Lift surgery. Here are some things that will help you to learn more about the BBL massage.
Most common when it comes to the recovery from a BBL, the recovery process begins with a series of massages. These BBL massages are specific and are categorized under lymphatic drainage. These massages consist of alleviating the level of discomfort and preventing the formation of imperfections that together are called “fibrosis after liposuction”. While it is true that the fat transferred to the buttocks is considered an implant that should not be touched for at least six weeks, this is also known as a BBL massage. When it comes to massaging your new, larger, and more shapely buttocks it is important for the massage therapist to be well trained in performing the fat transfer massage, as they will understand the correct amount of pressure that they are allowed to apply to the buttocks, without leading to any type of trauma, damage, or even having the buttocks come out or heal in a deformed, unsightly way.
It is important when thinking about the post-surgery period, to perform the treatment in a clinic specializing in lymphatic drainage since the lymphatic drainage massage is a specialty within the therapeutic massage. It is also necessary that the person who is going to undergo this type of plastic surgery, invest in buying the accessories you need for recovery. Among them is the BBL pillow which is essential for the weeks after the surgery. Another new term used these days is the “360 lipo” which is a term designed to describe 360-degree liposuction, that includes the abdomen, the sides, and the back. Another thing to understand is that these massages after liposuction are not an option, they are mandatory if you want to have a successful recovery where you do not regret imperfections. Lymphatic drainage massages, also called post-op massages are part of the rehabilitation process after any type of surgery. They help to diminish the fluid that the body forms immediately after surgery, relieve the level of pain, and diminishes or prevents the formation of imperfections such as lumps, uneven areas, wrinkles, indentations or discoloration of the skin, which cause discomfort the result after the surgery. It’s not just to look better, but to feel your best and improve your health the best you can.
