How Does PRP Aid Buttock Augmentation?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections

The use of platelet rich plasma in both surgical and non-surgical applications has occurred for decades. In fact, plastic surgeons often used PRP to help heal incisions quicker and better. However, PRP has now become a mainstay in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including non-surgical Brazilian butt lifts. How does PRP aid in buttock augmentation?

A traditional non-surgical BBL typically uses a collagen-stimulating dermal filler such as Sculptra to provide both immediate and future augmentation. This gradual growth and augmentation are similar to the process that PRP kickstarts when injected for various other purposes. Therefore, during a zombie BBL, PRP and Sculptra are combined to promote the ideal collagen production for buttock augmentation.

Our providers can take it a step further by using other growth factors such as placental cells or ACell to promote an even more dramatic augmentation. While less consistent and guaranteed that a BBL surgery, this non-surgical solution is great for those who do not have the fat to spare, or who only want a subtle buttock augmentation.

The Process Of Creating PRP

By | Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, exists naturally in our bodies. However, it is one of hundreds of components that make up our blood. Therefore, a specialized process must be performed to isolate PRP for procedures like PRP hair restoration and microneedling with PRP

The first step in creating PRP is drawing your blood. Once drawn, your provider will place the blood into our state-of-the-art centrifuge. This will spin the blood at a consistent speed for around twenty minutes. This separates out the different cells and particles of the blood, allowing the yellowish PRP to rise to the top of the vial. This is the standard for creating PRP.

At this point, your provider will extract the PRP from the vial and mix it with ACell, placenta, or use PRP on it’s own for your chosen treatment. The great thing about platelet rich plasma is that to isolate it requires no foreign substances or additives, which makes it safe and low risk to inject into the body.

Platelet rich plasma is a natural, regenerative substance used for a variety of medical and cosmetic benefits. This includes hair restoration to combat hair thinning, skincare procedures like microneedling, and even non-surgical Brazilian butt lifts. PRP is also sometimes used in surgery to aid in the healing of tissues and incisions. Other medical uses of PRP include treatment of arthritis, torn tendons and ligaments, and other muscle and joint injuries.
