Are you interested in getting a curvaceous backside with a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Whether you’re still researching the procedure or you’re ready to schedule a consultation, take a look at what you need to know about the Brazilian Butt Lift recovery.
Your Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery: What to Expect
The Brazilian Butt Lift has a surprisingly fast recovery period; in fact, most patients can expect to be up and walking around within one to two days after the surgery (you’ll still need someone to drive you home after the procedure).
During the first week of your Brazilian Butt Lift recovery, you may see some fluid leaking from your incision points. This is perfectly normal, so don’t panic! You should see the leaking stop within a few days after your surgical procedure.
You will be expected to wear a compression garment in the areas where the fat was initially harvested. This garment ensures that you’re able to heal properly. If the compression garment is placed around the stomach or waist, a hole will be cut around the buttocks to prevent pressure from being applied to this area.
Speaking of pressure, it’s important to note that you should not sit on your buttocks for at least 3 weeks after your operation. This is to prevent your newly grafted fat from taking on a different shape than originally intended. You will also be advised to sleep on your stomach.
Even after this three-week time period, you may need to use a gel cushion or donut when sitting for prolonged periods of time.
You should also avoid intensive exercise – especially anything involving bouncing – for four weeks after your surgery.
