Although many factors can influence fat survival after BBL, recovery significantly affects BBL results. If you want to maximize results from your BBL surgery, following post-op instructions and doing the highest level of BBL aftercare is important. In this article, you can learn about the BBL recovery process and the useful tips that help you get the most long-lasting BBL results.

What is BBL, and How Long Will Its Results Last?

Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, is a popular cosmetic surgery for the buttocks. It uses liposuction to transfer fat from some body areas to the butts, making them rounder and well-portioned. 

BBL results last long, depending on how you do your BBL post-op care during the recovery time. However, the recovery timeline may not be the same for everyone. Age, health, and medical history can affect BBL recovery.

BBL Aftercare: A Week-by-Week Timeline and Tips

Immediately after surgery

Immediately after BBL, you will experience some soreness, bruising, and swelling in the areas where the fat was removed. You can ask your plastic surgeon to prescribe medications to reduce the pain. Having a friend or family member drive you home and care for you for the first few days. Try to take short walks to reduce the swelling. 

Week 1-3

During weeks 1 to 2 after BBL, wear a special compression garment and avoid wearing tight clothes. The compression garment helps to treat the fat grafting areas. Avoid sitting, and try to use a pillow or donut to keep pressure off your butt. Sitting directly on the newly transferred fat cells may move the cells and even change your buttock's shape. You also should go for a follow-up visit and let your surgeon review your health status. During week one after BBL, lymphatic massages are also helpful to accelerate healing and treat scar tissues.

Week 4-5

During weeks four to five after BBL, you can return to your routine activities, but you should avoid lifting heavy weights. You may still feel a slight discomfort. However, if serious pain continues, call your surgeon immediately.

Week Six

Most patients do not feel discomfort or pain at week six after BBL. You can return to most of your normal activities, including sitting comfortably. The results of BBL and liposuction are visible at this point. Lower body exercise is also allowed with your surgeon's permission.

After Week Six 

There are some general aftercare tips to enhance the BBL recovery and results from week six:

  • Keep your weight constant;
  • Avoid smoking for at least 2 months;
  • Follow a nutritious diet, and drink plenty of water.

How to Prevent Dents After BBL?

To prevent dents after Brazilian butt surgery, you should avoid activities that put pressure on the fragile fat cells in your new butt. You also should wear your compression garment even while sleeping.

 The activities to avoid include:

  • sitting down;
  • stretching or squatting;
  • sleeping on your back;
  • smoking.

What to Eat After a BBL?

The healthy meals that are usually helpful for patients to heal fast after Brazilian butt lift surgery include fruits, vegetables, nuts, lean protein, good fats, dairy, and milk. You should avoid junk food, high-fat foods, sugar, and foods with low nutritional content. Also, remember to drink plenty of water.

How to Sit After a BBL Surgery?

It is better to avoid sitting for at least two weeks. However, when you want to sit after surgery, you can put a pillow on the upper thighs and below the buttocks to keep pressure off the buttocks.

How to Sleep After BBL?

Having enough rest after BBl surgery is an important factor in the healing process, but the way of sleeping is an important concern for those who had a bbl operation. Because the way of sleeping, like sitting, may affect the surgery result. Staying off your buttocks from sitting or lying down for up to six weeks is recommended. This allows the fat to graft to the buttocks correctly.

Sleeping on your back too soon increases the absorption of fat cells, which means you will have less desirable results. Surgeons advise patients to keep some supportive pillows for themselves in case they need to be more comfortable and have a better position by putting them in their back and thighs. In that case, pressure will be relieved from the buttocks surgery area.

In general, sleeping on your stomach is the best way to sleep after this operation because there is no pressure on the operation area. You can use medical pillows under your stomach to sleep more comfortably. Also, please pay attention to avoid sleeping on your side during the recovery period after the operation so that it does not have a negative effect on the result of the operation.
