Ultrasound Guidance for Safe Brazilian Butt Lifts: Precision BBL Techniques from the Expert
(July 15, 2022 - 12 AM CEST | 6 AM AWST | 7 AM KST | 8 AM AEST | 10 NZST)
With over 9 years of experience in using ultrasound to improve patient safety and procedural outcomes, plastic surgeon Dr. Pat Pazmiño, MD, FACS, will teach scanning best practices for guiding safe BBL surgeries.
In this 1-hour webinar, you’ll learn how easy it is to add handheld ultrasound to your plastic surgery practice to reduce the dangers of blind gluteal fat grafting procedures. Dr. Pazmiño will share proven ultrasound-guided techniques for making BBLs more accurate, reproducible, and safer. We’ll explore:
- Handheld ultrasound techniques for high-definition imaging of fat and muscle
- Performing ultrasound-guided TAP blocks to reduce patient pain and speed recovery
- How to visualize your canula in the subcutaneous compartment
- How to accurately pinpoint where every drop of fat is injected to maximize results
- Ultrasound tips for post-op monitoring, as well as identifying and aspirating seromas
To help you get ahead of legislative changes, join renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Pat Pazmiño, MD, FACS, creator of the ultraBBL™. On July 14th, he’ll share handheld ultrasound best practices that will give you confidence to deliver safe and consistent butt augmentation outcomes for your patients.
On June 3rd, 2022, the Florida Board of Medicine approved an emergency order that limits each surgeon to performing three popular gluteal fat grafting procedures per day and mandating the use of ultrasound when performing BBL surgeries to avoid injecting fat into the muscle, reducing the risk of fat embolisms.
This is in response to 19 women who died in the last five years following their BBL procedure in the region. BBLs are well known to be one of the riskiest of all cosmetic procedures with a fatality rate as high at 1 in 3,000. The gluteal muscles have vast vascular structures, which if injected with fat, can fatally migrate to the lungs or heart. While plastic surgeons know to avoid intramuscular gluteal injections, even the most experienced physicians can accidentally place their instrument inside the muscle because they can’t see beneath the skin. In this webinar, you’ll learn to use ultrasound to guide your procedures, reduce risk, and deliver safer outcomes for your patients with clear imaging of your cannula and patient anatomy.
Dr. Pazmiño is nationally renowned for inventing new procedures that combine the latest techniques in aesthetic surgery with ultrasound, such as the ultraBBL™, for the safest BBL procedure possible. In this live webinar, he’ll share his expert ultrasound techniques for imaging your patients, planning your BBL procedures, performing nerve blocks, guiding your cannula within the subcutaneous layer, and visualizing with millimeter accuracy where every drop of fat is being injected.
Going further by sharing case studies recently captured on video, Dr. Pazmiño will demonstrate how to use ultrasound for post-op monitoring, to monitor fat deposits, to detect and measure seromas, and to guide accurate aspirations in real-time by using high-definition wireless ultrasound. You’ll learn how adding high-definition wireless ultrasound to your plastic surgery practice can reduce risk, optimize procedural outcomes, and deliver piece of mind for your patients.
A recognized gold standard among plastic surgeons, ultrasound speeds diagnosis and improves procedural accuracy in a patient-friendly, non-invasive, and safe manner. Traditional ultrasound systems have been expensive and complex to learn. In this interactive webinar, you’ll see how affordable handheld ultrasound is changing the game with high-definition imaging and artificial intelligence paving the way for easy, rapid imaging. We’ll look under the skin using the newly released Clarius HD3 scanners and the Advanced Aesthetic Package that automatically optimize imaging for the busy plastic surgeon.
Join Dr. Pazmiño with your host Dr. Oron Frenkel, Emergency Physician and Chairman of the Clarius Medical Advisory Board, and sonographer Shelley Guenther who will feature live scanning to help to take your ultrasound skills to the next level with techniques you can start using with your next patient!
