SCUBA: Safe California Ultrasound assisted Buttock Augmentation

What is the SCUBA?

SCUBA is a brand new cosmetic surgery procedure developed by Dr. Arian Mowlavi M.D., FACS. With the ever growing popularity of brazilian butt lifts (BBLs), there has been an enhanced focus on any possible side effects. The SCUBA is a sure fire method to prevent the number #1 fear for most BBL patients, fat embolisms. It is the eponym for Safe California Ultrasound-assisted Buttock Augmentation. 


Why is SCUBA Safer Than a Traditional BBL

Purpose and Goal:

The purpose of a SCUBA procedure is to provide the same high definition brazilian butt lifts while minimizing the risk of fat emboli and potential death. The goal of this is to not break the subcutaneous muscle border defined by the anterior muscle fascia. This break is a primary cause of fat emboli and should be avoided at all caused. 


Method and Technique:

Dr. Mowlavi uses simultaneous high resolution ultrasound guidance during fat grafting to avoid injection of fat into or below the muscle. This allows for live and instant visualization of tissue plane and fat grafting cannula tip to visualize fat placement. This special cannula tip allows for an accurate visualization under high resolution ultrasound. This gives Dr. Mowlavi the tools necessary to be 100% certain that his fat is only being injected above the muscle.
