In general, surgeon remove the fat from the hips, abdomen, lower back, or thighs with liposuction. Then this fat is applied to the butt. As a result, BBL enhances the size and improves the shape of your buttocks.

First days after Brazilian Butt Lift

After the surgery, patients can expect to have bruising and swelling in the hips and buttocks. You can take medication to manage your pain. Every patient recovers differently from surgery, so recovery time can be change patients to patients. In generally, surgeon can expect to be up and walking a day or two after the surgery. During this time, you may find you are draining fluid from the incision sites. This is completely normal and can be managed with post-surgical massages.

Compression garment

After the surgery, surgeon recommend compression garments for use following a BBL surgery. Wearing the garment for eight weeks is very important thing during recovery process. Because surgeon wants to ensure that areas where the fat was harvested heal properly. The garment also helps to minimize swelling, decrease discomfort and help the skin retract.

Sitting position

One of the most important suggestions for recovery after Brazilian Butt Lift is to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for at least eight weeks after the procedure. Surgeon often advise to sleep on their stomach or sides. If you have to sit, you have to use a special BBL pillow. Placing the pillow behind your legs is helpful to avoid putting pressure on the fat graft by raising the buttock. This is very important to achieve long lasting results from your surgery, as sitting directly on the buttocks can affect blood circulation in the area.

Reducing blood circulation can break down fat cells injected into the butt. It should be noted, however, that 40% of the transferred fat is not likely to be permanent, whether the patient is seated or not. When sitting after the first eight weeks of treatment, it is still important to use pillows and avoid sitting for a long time. Surgeon also recommend that you do not sleep on your back for the first eight weeks after surgery.

Physical Activity

Immediately after your surgery, you should avoid intense activities, especially activities involving jumping. After a month, patients can do light activities like brisk walking. Depending on how the patient reacts to the operation, most patients can continue their normal activities six to eight weeks after the operation. It is important to listen to all of the post-operative instructions provided by your plastic surgeon to help ensure the final results provide you with an aesthetic pleasing shape.

Final Result

Generally , you can expect to see the permanent results of your Brazilian butt lift in two months. Differently than the other procedure, a BBL will provide as much fullness as you had in first six months even 10 years after having the procedure.
