What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
A Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without placing implants. Excess fat is removed from areas of the body with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the buttocks. A skilled, cosmetic surgeon can improve the proportions of the entire lower body with brazilian butt lift surgery, helping a patient lose fat in problem areas and enhance the buttocks with results lasting many years.
Recovering after your Brazilian Buff Lift
Having an operation on the buttocks requires some special modifications during recovery. While pain is typically minimal and easily controlled with pain medication, you will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for approximately 2 weeks after a brazilian butt lift procedure. A BBL pillow will be provided to you after surgery. During this time, you will need to sleep on your stomach or side, as well as lie this way, or stand, for all activities except using the toilet. When you are ready, your cosmetic surgeon will allow you to sit in a modified position, using a “donut” seat, or placing a pillow under your thighs to avoid pressure on the buttocks. Normal sitting activity is typically allowed after 6 weeks. Given you follow your cosmetic surgeon’s instructions, you should be able to resume light, daily activities within 1 week after surgery and return to work within 10-14 days.
