The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedure is an extremely popular one due to the influence of celebrities such as the Kardashians. Women are asking for bigger booties, and the BBL procedure is the gold standard for a natural looking augmentation. However, optimal results are partly dependent upon the recovery period and how well a patient follows their surgeon’s post-op instructions. Read on for some recovery tips for achieving the beautiful BBL results you desire.
- Don’t Sit on Your Buttocks
One of the most important rules to follow during Brazilian Butt Lift recovery is to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for at least 10 days. This is important to ensure that the transplanted fat in the buttocks survives. If you absolutely must sit, it is advised to sit on a donut pillow, or only sit for short periods of time.
- Avoid Squatting and Stretching
Patients should also avoid squatting or stretching during their recovery period. This is because these movements could cause tearing in the tissues.
- Wear Your Compression Garments
It is also very important that patients wear their compression garments for 4-6 weeks after surgery. These garments help to reduce swelling, hold the buttocks in place, and speed up the overall recovery process for optimal results.
- Avoid Strenuous Activity
Although you may want to get back into the gym as soon as possible, patients must avoid strenuous activities and exercise for at least 4 weeks after surgery. Getting the recommended amount of rest during recovery can help the donor sire to heal quickly.
Following your BBL procedure, you will receive specific post-op instructions from your plastic surgeon, which are very important to follow to achieve beautiful results.
