A Manual Lymph Drainage Therapist's Role in the Recovery After Brazilian Butt Lift (B.B.L.)Mar 19, 2023
The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a cosmetic surgical procedure that has gained popularity in recent years. It involves the transfer of fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks to enhance their shape and size. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the history of BBL, what the procedure entails, and how treatment from a manual lymph drainage therapist benefits recovery afterwards.
History of Brazilian Butt Lift
The history of the Brazilian Butt Lift can be traced back to the 1960s, when silicone injections were used to enhance the buttocks' appearance. However, the use of silicone injections was banned in the 1990s due to safety concerns. Since then, fat transfer has become the preferred method for buttock augmentation.
What the Procedure Entails
The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure involves a combination of liposuction (mostly VASER Liposuction) and fat transfer. The surgeon will first remove fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips using liposuction. The fat is then purified and processed before being injected into the buttocks. The surgeon will carefully sculpt the buttocks to create the desired shape and size.
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take between two to four hours to complete. Patients will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks following the procedure to aid in healing.
Recovery and the Role of Manual Lymph Drainage Therapists
Recovery from Brazilian Butt Lift can be challenging, and patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several weeks. However, manual lymph drainage therapists can help to reduce these symptoms and speed up the recovery process.
Manual lymph drainage therapy (M.L.D.) involves gentle massage techniques that help to stimulate the lymphatic system, which is responsible for removing waste and excess fluid from the body. This helps to reduce swelling and promote healing.
Manual lymph drainage therapists typically begin treatment a few days after the surgery and continue for several weeks. Patients can expect to have several sessions per week, with each session lasting between 30 and 60 minutes.
In conclusion, Brazilian Butt Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that has gained popularity in recent years. The procedure involves the transfer of fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks to enhance their shape and size. Recovery from BBL can be challenging, but manual lymph drainage therapists can help to reduce swelling and promote healing. With proper aftercare, patients can expect to see long-lasting results from their Brazilian Butt Lift procedure.
