Introducing the Revolutionary Brazilian Butt Lift Under Local Anesthesia (BBLULA) in New York City by bodySCULPT®: A Safer Alternative

Sharing is caring!

Renowned New York City cosmetic surgeons Drs. Christopher Chia and Spero Theodorou of bodySCULPT® invented a revolutionary technique called the awake Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL), otherwise known as BBL under Local Anesthesia (BBLULA). BBLULA is an ingenious way to enjoy the faster recovery time associated with local anesthesia and gain the benefits of BBL without the risks of general anesthesia. This technique and study was published in American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a peer reviewed journal .

Why is Brazilian Butt Lift Under Local Anesthesia (BBLULA) so revolutionary? According to Drs. Christopher Chia and Spero Theodorou, “The Brazilian Butt Lift Under Local Anesthesia retains all the benefits of traditional BBL without the risk of general anesthesia and the accidental injection of fat into the bloodstream.” The surgeons took their experience of over 5,000 awake liposuction cases and extended the technique to where patients can have the fat removed from undesired places and safely injected into the buttocks.

Traditional Brazilian Butt Lifts under general anesthesia have been reported to have the highest death rate (one in 3000) by far for any elective cosmetic procedure. While removing fat from unwanted areas prepared and injected to the buttocks and thighs, it was found to cause devastating consequences getting lodged in lungs, heart or other areas. These complications have been reported in US, around the globe and has been banned by British Plastic Surgery Society.

Since no general anesthesia is used in BBLULA, the patients are awake. Local anesthesia is then carefully injected into both the areas where fat is to be removed and used for numbing. In contrast to the asleep patient under general anesthesia who is completely non-responsive, the awake patient acts as the best possible monitor reducing the chances of complications.

Major Advantages of BBLULA:

  • No implant related risks
  • Minimal side effects
  • Minimal downtime
  • No hospital stay
  • Faster recovery
  • Minimal scarring and discomfort
  • Soft consistency of the skin
