A more positive self image.
ButtSalzman incorporates both internal and external ultrasound. Fat is removed around the buttocks, hips and thighs and sometimes abdomen. The fat is filtered through a system that processes it in a way that allows only the good fat to be used, in turn making the fat that is injected more viable and a higher percentage to live. This is the fat that is injected into the buttocks. The Vaser technology allows Dr. Salzman to be more superficial with the liposuction and sculpting of the buttocks. The internal ultrasound used creates heat and offers tightening of the skin as well. The external ultrasound allows Dr. Salzman to see precisely where the fat injection is placed.
Brazilian Butt lift is done under general anesthesia in our AAAASF nationally accredited operating room. We use Vaser with power assisted liposuction cannulas to separate the fat into individual cells making them more easily and less traumatically removed. The fat is then processed by the Red Headâ device which filters out the liquid and cells that would unlikely survive the transfer. Using these advanced methods, our fat retention is 6-0-80%. Like any Aesthetic Plastic Surgery procedure, safety is our number one priority. Over the last several years, as the popularity of this procedure has increased dramatically, there has been an alarming increase the mortality of this procedure. It has been shown, that fat that is injected into the muscle may gain access to the large veins traversing these muscles.
This fat can then travel through the heart to the lungs where it can cause problems. In our office, we have been using diagnostic ultrasound for 5 years for a myriad of uses including monitoring of the integrity of silicone breast implants. Since July of 2017, we have used ultrasound to visualize the position of the fat injection cannula to make sure that the injected fat goes only into the subcutaneous tissue and not the muscle. This, we believe, makes this procedure far safer. We would predict that, over the next few years, the use of ultrasound for Brazilian Butt Lifts will become more common.
Recuperation and Healing
Patients leave wearing a dressing that consists of a large sponge that outlines the buttock area. This keeps pressure off of the newly injected fat and stays on for several days. The tiny incisions used to harvest the fat are closed with skin glue and are covered with a waterproof dressing. There is bruising and swelling, most subsides in 2 weeks.
The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can only be determined at consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual.
As patients approach their procedure date, they frequently need information about the various payment options. We hope the following information will be helpful.
Our financial coordinators are readily available to meet with you personally to provide the specific information you desire.
