Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure that involves taking fat from one place on the body and placing it inside of the buttocks. It helps increase the size and roundness of the buttocks. There are a lot of things you will have to do in order to ensure that the recovery process goes smoothly.

Before your Brazilian Butt Lift procedure, Dr. Wendell Perry will go over everything you need to know in detail to make sure you’re ready. He will outline any necessary instructions and precautions that you need to take to ensure a healthy, speedy recovery. We’re available every step of the way to answer any questions you may have, so contact us any time.

You Will Have To Wear a Support Garment

A support garment helps limit the discomfort you experience after this procedure. Temporary drains may also be placed in the incision area. This helps drain the excess fluid.

No Prolonged Sitting

It will be advised that you avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for at least 10 to 14 days after your treatment. Prolonged sitting can destroy the transferred cells. We recommend sleeping on your side as much as possible. When you do need to sit down, you will need to use a pillow or cushion. This will ensure your comfort as well as the success of the treatment.

No Strenuous Activity for Several Weeks

You will need to avoid strenuous activity until you have fully recovered from your Brazilian Butt Lift. This typically takes six to eight weeks. We may recommend that you get a lymphatic massage from a massage therapist. A lymphatic massage helps reduce swelling.

The Results

You will notice a difference immediately after you get a Brazilian butt lift. However, it is important to note that the final results will not be visible until after all of the swelling has gone down. The amount of time that this takes can vary from patient to patient. In many cases, it can take up to three months for the swelling to completely do down.

We will give you specific instructions on things that you can do to minimize discomfort after this procedure. We may recommend that you take a medication in order to reduce the pain and swelling, and we will also give you instructions on how to care for the treated area.
