Over the years Brazilian butt lift has been getting more and more popular. Infact it’s among the top 10 most performed cosmetic procedures. The Brazilian butt lift is most loved because of its natural looking results. This is because no artificial implants are used only your own fat is used. Fat is liposuctioned from a donor area in your body mostly the thighs, hips or stomach, purified and reinjected into your bottom. This gives you the shape and volume that you desire.
Getting a Brazilian butt lift is all pretty and exciting till you get to the recovery part. Bruising and swelling on the fat donor areas is expected immediately after the surgery but it is managed by medication. Blood tinged fluid may drain from the incisions on the donor areas for a few days hence there is no reason to be alarmed about it. For optimal results it is best to follow all the surgeons post surgery instructions to the letter. Other recovery tips include;
It is important to avoid sitting down or applying pressure on the bottoms before they are fully healed. The transplanted fat is very fragile at the time and no sitting down for a minimum of 10 days after the procedure ensures that the fat survives. After this you can sit down for a maximum of 1hr in a day but not more than 10 minutes at a time for the next 3-4 weeks. You will also need to use a specialized BBL pillow. This pillow shifts the weight away from the bottoms on to the thighs and back. Also no sleeping on your back either. You can sleep on your stomach or side.
You will be given a compression garment which will help with the discomfort and prevent any tissue swelling. The compression garment will ensure that you heal properly on the donor areas as well as speed up the healing process.
The only exercise that you should do is walking so your blood circulation will improve. Avoid any strenuous activity for a month after the procedure.
Swimming and hot tubs may prevent the skin from getting oxygen to where it is really needed hence slowing down the recovery period. Avoid this for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
You will not be able to see the results immediately after the surgery as they will be masked by swelling due to the tissue damage. It can take 6 months plus for you to see the final results even after the swelling has gone down.
Most patients depending on how well they respond to the procedure are expected to resume their normal activities 6-8 weeks after the procedure. This is because the fat cells have to stabilize first in order for them to be able to withstand the impact from fat burning exercises.
Following your surgeons instructions will ensure your recovery process is as smooth as possible.
