To understand the intricate process of a second-round BBL, we must first look at a traditional BBL. A Brazilian Butt Lift is, in its essence, a split combination of liposuction and fat transfer. During a traditional BBL, Dr. Sajan uses power-assisted lipo to harvest the fat from various body areas like the stomach and thighs. Then, he purifies the fat through sterile gravity decanting and uses small cannulas to inject it into the buttock. It’s a highly technical procedure that contours the body, buttocks, and hips.
A second-round BBL is a more complicated side. Because the patient has already undergone one liposuction round, the newly formed fat can be fibrous and tougher to extract. Additionally, scar tissue can form in the prior donor sites, making navigating the hardened areas difficult. Injecting the fat around the prior BBL can create difficulties during the procedure. Dr. Sajan uses specialized and advanced methods for both steps in a second round BBL to ensure smooth, beautiful results with every surgery.
Step 1: Advanced Liposuction
For a second-round BBL, the liposuction technique must differ from the traditional to achieve success. Dr. Sajan uses ultrasonic energy to harvest fat during a second-round BBL Seattle. Ultrasonic liposuction makes it easier to harvest fat grafts smoothly and work around the fibrous fat and rigid scar tissue. The ultrasonic waves emit heat underneath the fat to break up and disrupt the stubborn areas and scar tissue. This creates a smoother transfer method and allows Dr. Sajan to harvest more fat than possible with suctioning.
However, Dr. Sajan also utilizes tumescent fluid to further enhance fat harvesting. Tumescent fluid combines lidocaine and epinephrine to saturate the fat cells and create an easy extraction process. Combining these advanced techniques is critical for a successful second-round Brazilian Butt Lift. Harvesting fat cells a second time brings many challenges. Still, with both tumescent fluid and ultrasonic liposuction, Dr. Sajan decreases the risk of bleeding, allows for a smoother process, and can harvest more stubborn fat effortlessly.
Step 2. Motorized Fat Transfer
Once the fat has been harvested and purified, it can be transferred, but this method should also vary from a traditional BBL. When performing a second-round BBL Seattle, Dr. Sajan transfers fat into an area with scar tissue from the first surgery. Instead of injecting the fat superficially, Dr. Sajan uses power-assisted tubes to inject the fat into the buttocks. Hand-injecting the fat can create unwanted ridges, lumps, and uneven dips in the buttocks and hips.
The power-assisted fat transfer uses a motorized sterile pump system with advanced, mobile cannulas to create space for the fat to flow into the buttocks and distribute it evenly across the area. This helps Dr. Sajan avoid unnecessary trauma to the rear that can come from superficially injecting the fat into scar tissue. This advanced fat transfer method produces a more accurate delivery with enhanced and sleek contours.
