If you’ve ever considered or undergone a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), you’re probably aware of the sensationalised stories and concerns surrounding this procedure. However, we’re here to tell you that the landscape of BBL surgery in the UK has evolved, thanks to the groundbreaking research of Dr. Omar Tillo and a deeper understanding of what makes BBL recovery a safer journey.

Separating Fact from Fiction

In the past, the media has often painted BBL surgery as a high-risk procedure, sending shockwaves through potential patients and even experienced plastic surgeons. Dr. Omar Tillo investigated these concerns, meticulously scrutinising what went wrong and how these potential risks could be mitigated.

His research unveiled a surprising truth–the initial figures were flawed, and BBL surgery was never as perilous as they publicised it in the national tabloids. Today, a BBL is no riskier than a routine tummy tuck, reassuring news for those considering this transformative procedure.

The Cutting-Edge Approach

Dr. Tillo’s dedication to patient safety has led to revolutionary changes in the BBL procedure. We had the privilege of observing this transformation firsthand during surgery. The key innovation lies in using ultrasound scans to precisely locate the muscle and ensure that the fat is strategically placed on top of it.

Elevating Your Post-Op Care

At Essential Feeling, we specialise in post-surgery aftercare, particularly for BBL patients. Our mission is to enhance your recovery experience and ensure stunning results. Here’s how we do it:

1. Reducing Swelling with MLD

Our team employs Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) techniques to minimise your post-operative swelling, promoting a quicker and smoother recovery.

2. Minimising Fibrous Scar Tissue

Liposuction is an integral part of the BBL process. We’re experts in minimising fibrous scar tissue development, helping you achieve a smoother, more natural look.

3. Softening Hard Fascia

Hard fascia can develop as a result of the surgical trauma associated with BBL. Our therapeutic modalities are designed to soften and alleviate this condition for a more comfortable recovery.

4. Preserving Fat Longevity with iPRF

Want your BBL results to stand the test of time? We’ve got you covered. We use injectable Platelet-Rich Fibrin (iPRF), a clinically proven method to support the longevity of your newly transferred fat. It’s like a secret weapon for maintaining that voluptuous silhouette.

IPRF is thought to help keep fat alive after a fat transfer procedure by:

  • Providing a scaffold for the fat cells to adhere to
  • Promoting angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels)
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Enhancing the survival of the fat cells

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) (the forerunner to iPRF which is the new improved science backed version of PRP) has been shown to be effective in treating fat transfer procedures.

In a study published in the journal Aesthetic Surgery Journal, researchers found that PRP injections improved the survival of fat grafts after a fat transfer procedure. The study found that PRP injections led to a significant increase in the number of blood vessels that formed around the fat grafts, which helped to keep the fat alive.

Another study, published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, found that PRP injections improved the results of fat transfer procedures in patients with facial lipoatrophy, a condition that causes the loss of fat from the face. The study found that PRP injections led to a significant increase in the face’s volume and improved the overall appearance of patients.

Creating new ideas

During the procedure, we saw that different people have different tissue structures. In those people who have hard, firm tissue it would be useful to come in for one or two myofascial release sessions before your surgery. This will mean that when you are having the liposuction part of your BBL, you will not suffer the same damage and in the long run, this will lead to less pain, swelling and a faster recovery with fewer post therapy sessions required.

Backed by Research
