What are the Benefits of an Ultrasound Guided Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) has continued to grow in popularity as more and more people seek a rounder, fuller, more lifted butt. However, a BBL has more risks than some other procedures, so Dr. Earle has chosen to use ultrasound guidance when performing his BBL surgeries to make them safer than ever before.

WHAT IS A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?
A Brazilian Butt Lift uses liposuction to remove fat from almost any area of the body that has some to spare. After the fat is purified, it is injected into the buttocks to provide lift, volume, and roundness. A successful BBL requires fat grafting, meaning that the fat needs to make itself at home and develop its own blood supply in its new location. Not all fat survives, but the fat that remains provides people with their long-lasting BBL results.
HOW DOES AN ULTRASOUND BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT WORK?
With a traditional BBL, the doctor must work blindly when placing fat into the buttocks. In order to place the fat in its optimal location, avoid any blood vessels or other structures, and remain at the correct angle to the muscle and other landmarks, Dr. Earle and Dr. Vidal use ultrasound to guide them.
By placing an ultrasound probe on the surface of the skin, the doctors can see an image on a screen of the tissues and structures as they work. Instead of placing fat into the area without any visual guidance, they can now use ultrasound imaging to make sure they place the fat in the best locations without disrupting any blood vessels or layers of muscle.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN ULTRASOUND BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?
An ultrasound Brazilian Butt Lift has many advantages over a traditional unguided BBL. Because Dr. Earle and Dr. Vidal are always on the lookout for ways to improve the safety and results of their work, they have chosen ultrasound-guided BBL.
Ultrasound guidance ensures that the fat is being grafted into the safe subcutaneous space. Going into or deep to the gluteal muscle can cause disruption of large vessels and a fat embolism. Fat embolisms can lead to major complications, hospitalization, and even death. Using ultrasound guidance makes the process much safer.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY FROM A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT?
You can walk around the day after surgery but will need to sit on a special pillow for at least six weeks to avoid disturbing the fat cells. You can resume moderate activity like brisk walking after a month but should wait at least eight weeks before any activity that might stress or damage the buttocks.
