Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs) have experienced a rise in popularity in recent years as more women seek to achieve larger derrieres and show off a curvy figure that is sexy and feminine. Although BBLs are one of the most requested types of plastic surgery in the industry, there are many forms available with how they’re performed.
BBL with J-plasma is one of the top procedures performed at Boutinic Aesthetics and is becoming more common due to how much they enhance a traditional BBL. We have patients from the local area and different parts of the world due to our sterling reputation in the industry and the incredible results that are delivered.
There are a few reasons why both patients and plastic surgeons prefer BBLs with J-plasma.
What is J plasma BBL?
J plasma BBL incorporates the Renuvion skin tightening technology after the liposuction stage during a BBL procedure to improve the appearance and results on the areas treated, particularly the abdominal area. It works very similarly to traditional buttock augmentation surgery with fat grafting but has extra benefits, especially for patients with skin laxity problems.
J Plasma is one of the most recommended types of treatments to accompany a BBL due to its impressive and attractive results. A BBL involves adding natural fat that is harvested from other areas of the body, specifically to the hips and buttocks, for increased volume and advanced contouring.
Liposuction is performed directly below and above each button to achieve the desired results, depending on the goal of the patient. J Plasma is performed with the procedure and tightens the targeted areas to make the buttocks appear up to 30% larger for results that are even more visible. This eliminates any sagging skin that is present and delivers natural results that are youthful.
The J-plasma treatment involves using new technology that delivers results in only one session with immediate results. It requires the plastic surgeon to make an incision where a tiny cannula is inserted to extract fat from the targeted area of the body. A flow of helium gas is then used on the subdermal tissue that is present. The helium gas turns to plasma and works well in resurfacing the skin by encouraging natural collagen to be produced in the body with the heat it generates.
Candidates for this type of procedure must have a stable weight that doesn’t change or fluctuate too frequently. The plastic surgeon will want the weight to remain stable following the procedure to maintain the results and the new contour that is created.
Is J plasma necessary with BBL?
Most plastic surgeons who perform BBLs recommend J Plasma due to how much it enhances the results when a BBL is performed. This treatment creates a new contour that enhances and changes the shape of the patient’s body. Not only is the shape of the body contoured, but the skin is also adjusted to look taut and firm without any sagging present.
Although J plasma isn’t considered to be necessary with BBL, it’s still highly recommended because it will modestly improve the results for a higher level of satisfaction. It’s an excellent option for patients who want to correct contour irregularities or redefine the contour of their butt.
The results of the BBL are optimized and also deliver an anti-aging effect on all ages due to the natural collagen that is produced in the body following the treatment.
The benefits of combining J-Plasma with a BBL
Although the traditional fat transfer technique used for BBL can deliver awesome results to contour and reshape the figure, the use of other innovative technologies such as J plasma can improve the overall results and increase the patient’s satisfaction level.
Combining J-Plasma with a BBL has many advantages because it allows patients to have as much skin contracture as possible. This enhances the shape of the figure by influencing the waist, abdomen, and back to start to shrink following the procedure, creating a natural hourglass figure that is more pronounced. The results are natural because the technology stimulates new collagen and renews cells in the body to enhance the elasticity and firmness of the skin. For patients, it doesn’t involve a lot of pain or discomfort.
Firming the skin also creates a smoother appearance that is youthful and attractive. It also prevents loose skin from forming following the procedure for better long-term results. It reduces the risk of needing corrections or revisions to be made.
This type of procedure is often performed in an outpatient clinic and has a quick recovery time of 48 to 72 hours, which prevents patients from having to take too much time off of work.
There also aren’t any visible scars that are left behind because only small incisions are made, allowing the skin to appear flawless.
When you undergo a BBL with J-plasma, the plastic surgeon makes a small incision on the treatment area with a highly specialized device that creates cold helium plasma with the use of radiofrequency energy and helium gas. The tiny probe is inserted into the targeted area where the incision is made, where plasma is distributed under the skin.
Heat then causes the subcutaneous tissues to contract. The treatment area is cooled at this time with the use of excess helium gas in an effort to mitigate thermal damage to the tissues. This causes the skin to instantly become smoother, tighter, and more youthful.
The process is meant to improve how your butt looks and it’s very similar to the traditional buttock augmentation with a fat transfer procedure. Here is an outline of the steps followed:
Sedating the patient: Patients are usually sedated with the least amount of dose to ensure that there are no negative effects. This makes the procedure safe.
Incision, Fat Removal, and Body Contouring: Small incisions are made on the patient in the area to be treated. They averagely are less than a quarter of an inch. A small plastic tube called a cannula is inserted between the patient’s muscle and skin and the surgeon administers anesthesia to the area. Unwanted fat is removed and the patient’s body is shaped to their desire. The fat is saved for processing and transfer to other places in the body.
Plasma Tightening: The region where the fat has been removed is treated with plasma ions and radiofrequency radiation. The process tightens the skin on the abdomen, above and below your buttocks, making them look even bigger while other parts are smaller and tighter.
The Fat is Processed and Transferred: Liposuction fat is processed and then delivered to your buttocks via multiple injections. The top area will get more fat, while the bottom part will get less.
Results: The benefits of a butt lift are visible a few weeks following the surgery, once the post-operative edema has subsided. For the first 6 weeks after surgery, a compression garment will be worn to maintain pressure off the places where fat was injected. The plasma-treated regions will become noticeably tighter.
How much does BBL with J-plasma cost?
The cost of a BBL with J-plasma is an average of $3,400 to $10,000 and depends on multiple factors. The level of experience of the plastic surgeon will influence the cost of the procedure, as well as the goals of the patient and the look they want to achieve. Patients who have to undergo more extensive BBLs can expect to pay more. The location of the facility is another factor that influences the cost.
The overall price of a BBL with J-plasma varies for each patient, making it necessary to schedule a consultation to discuss your specific goals and learn more about what you can expect to pay. Typically, adding J-plasma to a BBL will cost more than a BBL, but it also delivers better results that last longer.
