Sitting directly on the buttock might be painful after BBL, so you need to sit on your thighs or put a BBL pillow under your buttock to avoid applying pressure on the operated part. You can sit and lie down normally almost 14 days after the operation.
Brazilian Butt Lift gives a better shape to the buttock and removes its skin irregularities like cellulitis and dents. However, it may cause infection, bleeding, fat embolism, seroma, necrosis, scarring, and prolonged numbness. Fortunately, you can prevent or treat most of these side effects by improving your lifestyle, wearing compression garments, avoiding certain activities, and taking antibiotics.
The recovery time for BBL is almost six weeks. During this time, you should wear compression garments and be careful of what you eat. Sitting, sleeping, having sex, exercising, and even doing chores should be done according to your surgeon’s instructions. Otherwise, the results of this cosmetic surgery are not guaranteed.
People with stable weight, proper skin elasticity, and good overall health can augment their buttocks through BBL surgery. In this operation, the surgeon extracts excess fat from the abdomen or other parts of the body and, after purifying it, injects it into the buttock. It takes 6 weeks to recover from BBL fully, but its results are almost lifelong.
