On the day of your non-surgical Brazilian butt lift with PRP and ACell, you will come into our office and can enjoy refreshments like freshly baked cookies, hot coffee, tea, and speciality water.
Once led back to one of our state-of-the-art treatment rooms, a PRP In Seattle provider will draw your blood and begin preparing the PRP. As the PRP is spinning in the centrifuge, your provider will apply the topical anesthetic to the area and we do offer light oral sedatives for our patients who would prefer not being fully awake. Regardless, you should remain comfortable during the procedure and your provider will continue to monitor you throughout.
Once the platelet rich plasma is isolated, Dr. Jonov or Dr. Sajan will combine it with the ACell. At this point, you should be numb and ready to begin the procedure. Your surgeon will strategically inject the PRP and ACell mixture in the places discussed and marked beforehand. This allows them to keep your goals in mind. The injection sites will vary based on your goals. For example, if you want more upward projection and a “shelf” appearance, they will focus more on the upper third and near the crease of the upper buttocks.
The length of the procedure depends on the size of immediate enhancement you desire, how much PRP and ACell you want injected, and the number of injection sites. Typically, most patients spend a couple hours in our office for the entire process from start to finish, although the actual injecting usually only takes 30 minutes to an hour.
When Dr. Jonov or Dr. Sajan finishes your non-surgical Brazilian butt lift, they will give you instructions on how to care for your new booty. While not a surgical procedure, you may still experience a few minor side effects of the injections like general discomfort, bruising, and swelling. Many patients do not require prescription pain medication afterward and are not overly inconvenienced due to side effects.
Generally, your provider will instruct you not to sit directly on your buttocks for 24 hours. You or a caregiver should also administer hand massages for three minutes, three times a day, for three weeks. They will ensure you understand the proper technique before leaving the office.
While you are not undergoing general anesthesia, if you took an oral sedative, you may still feel groggy. Therefore, we recommend having someone to drive you home and care for you for the first day after the injections. Even if you decided to forego the sedative, driving home can be uncomfortable or hard to accomplish while trying not to sit right on your buttocks.
