Why is VASER Liposuction Ideal for Brazilian Buttock Lift?

Introduction: Why is VASER liposuction ideal for BBL?

Why is VASER liposuction ideal for BBL? VASER liposuction offers multiple advantages for body contouring and fat harvesting and grafting not provided by conventional liposuction techniques:

  • First, VASER liposuction allows for high-definition body contouring.
  • The second advantage is that VASER liposuction allows for harvest of 40% more fat than conventional liposuction techniques.
  • The third advantage of VASER liposuction is that it allows for liquified cell fat cell transfer that is smoother in consistency. Smoother fat cell consistency allows for the use of the closed-loop system and avoidance of buttock contour irregularities
  • The final advantage of VASER liposuction for BBL procedure is that fat clusters are transformed into single-cell fat media which maximizes fat viability and graft take.

Superior high-definition liposuction results

Superior high-definition liposuction results have become a mainstay of ultrasound-assisted liposuction performed with VASER technology. This is because the ultrasound energy allows both superficial and deep fat to be removed. This is unlike conventional liposuction which only offers the ability to remove deep fat.

The difference is that conventional liposuction can only debulk any concerned areas, whereas VASER liposuction provides the ability to sculpt and maximally narrow the waist, often referred to as waistline snatching.

Higher fat graft harvests

Higher fat graft harvests are feasible since more fat can be harvested with VASER liposuction rather than conventional liposuction. This is because the deep fat can be removed, which is the limit of traditional liposuction, but the superficial fat can also be removed using ultrasound energy.

By removing both the superficial and deep fat, approximately 40% more fat can be harvested. This increase in fat graft harvest means that even patients with minimal boy fat content, less than 10%, can still have enough fat transfer for their Brazilian Buttock Lift.

A smoother single-cell fat harvest medium allows for the use of a closed-loop system

During VASER liposuction, ultrasound energy allows for cavitation or melting of the fat. This process allows for a smoother, single-fat cell harvest medium. This softer fat cell medium will allow your surgeon to use a closed-loop system. The closed-loop system allows your surgeon to maintain the fat in a completely sealed and sterile container for both the harvest, processing, and injection phases of your BBL. A closed-loop system is predicated on having a smoother fat medium achieved by having single-cell fat cells.

The advantages of using the closed-loop system for your Brazilian Buttock Lift are that fat transfer is expedited (less out-of-body time) and minimized risk of fat cell contamination (reduces the risk of infection).

Smoother buttock contour with avoidance of irregularities following a BBL

Smooth buttock contour with avoidance of contour irregularities is critical following the Brazilian Buttock Lift. Fat cells that are harvested using traditional techniques can only be removed in clumps. This is because fat cells have typically adhered to each other and, when removed physically with the use of cannulas, will come out in clumps.

Unfortunately, fat cell clumps may create contour abnormalities if injected too superficially. However, VASER-assisted liposuction will melt the fat down to single cells that are smoother in consistency. As such, the fat medium will feel and look smoother.

This smoother fat cell medium, when transferred into the buttock will appear more natural in contour as it will avoid the creation of lumps or bumps on the skin surface even if it is injected superficially.

Improved graft take of single-cell fat medium

Improved graft take of single-cell fat medium will improve overall fat graft take. This is because when fat cells are transferred into their new home, i.e. the buttock cheeks, they must re-establish their blood supply. The smaller the fat cells, the greater the surface-to-volume ratio they will have, increasing the likelihood of re-establishment of vascularity.

Improving vascular re-establishment will result in improved fat graft take and, as a result, the increased retained volume of the augmented buttock cheek.

Why VASER Liposuction is Ideal for Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) Expanded

The Brazilian butt lift (BBL) has become an increasingly popular procedure for enhancing the shape and size of the buttocks. During a BBL, fat is removed from areas like the abdomen, hips, or thighs through liposuction. This harvested fat is then processed and reinjected into the buttocks to create more fullness and contour.

Advantages of VASER Liposuction for BBL

VASER liposuction is considered an ideal technique to use during a BBL for several reasons:

More Precise Fat Removal

VASER stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance” [1]. It utilizes ultrasound energy to selectively break apart fat cells while preserving other important tissues like blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue [2]. This allows the surgeon to sculpt and contour the treatment areas in a very precise manner.

Compared to traditional liposuction methods, VASER allows for more customized fat removal targeting only the desired areas [3]. This precision is crucial for achieving a natural, proportional look with fat transferred to the buttocks.

Less Bruising and Trauma

Because VASER technology does not utilize aggressive mechanical suction or force, it creates less bruising, swelling, and trauma to the tissue [4]. Patients experience less pain and recover more quickly when VASER is used.

Minimizing surgical trauma allows transferred fat cells to graft and thrive in their new location. With less disturbance to the tissue, there is improved viability of the reinjected fat.

Better Fat Graft Retention

Fat removed with VASER liposuction maintains its integrity and stem cell concentration [5]. Stem cells are integral to the success of fat grafting procedures, as they promote angiogenesis and survival of the transferred fat [6].

VASER’s gentle approach preserves adipose stem cells better than harsher liposuction techniques. This translates to improved graft retention and longer-lasting results [7].

Enhanced Skin Tightening

The ultrasonic energy used in VASER treatments promotes collagen remodeling and tissue tightening [8]. When performed by an experienced provider, VASER can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve skin laxity over the liposuction treatment zones.

This is a major benefit for BBL patients, providing enhanced contouring and lift to the abdominal area and other liposuction sites. The Vaser overall results are more comprehensive compared to traditional liposuction alone.

Ideal Candidate for VASER BBL

The best candidates for VASER liposuction with BBL include individuals who [9]:

  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Are non-smokers
  • Have isolated fat deposits suitable for liposuction
  • Do not have circulatory disorders or vascular complications
  • Are at a stable weight
  • Have realistic expectations for enhancement, not major enlargement

Proper patient selection ensures safety and optimal outcomes after using VASER technology for body contouring and buttock enhancement.

Conclusion: Why VASER liposuction is ideal for BBL

In conclusion, superior Brazilian Buttock Lifts are possible with VASER liposuction for a multitude of reasons. These advantages make the use of VASER liposuction invaluable to expert buttock enhancement surgeons.

VASER liposuction is increasingly becoming the method of choice for surgeons performing Brazilian butt lifts. Its ability to delicately remove fat while preserving other tissue makes it well-suited for BBL procedures. With less surgical trauma, improved fat graft retention, enhanced skin tightening, and a customizable approach, VASER technology helps plastic surgeons safely achieve natural-looking results.
