What’s the Recovery Time For a Brazilian Butt Lift?

There’s no denying that the 21st century belongs to the butt. Thanks to the popularity of music, pop culture, and more than a few celebrities with blessed backsides (thank you, J. Lo!), the rear has stolen the spotlight from the breasts, which means more women are eager to experience the aesthetic benefits of the Brazilian butt lift. The Brazilian butt lift is a cosmetic surgery treatment that uses liposuction or fat grafting procedures to enhance the overall look and shape of the posterior. With the Brazilian butt lift, fat is removed from common trouble areas, like the abdomen, thighs, and flanks, and then it is transferred to your buttocks. The end result is a more shapely and contoured bottom. A Brazilian butt lift is also a popular choice specifically because recovery time is surprisingly minimal. The only restriction you might encounter is that you can’t sit down for up to one week. Also, when recovering from a Brazilian butt lift procedure, you’ll also need to wear a girdle for about three weeks. This will help decrease the amount of bruising, limit swelling, and assist the loose skin in retracting or shrinking in liposuction areas. You may encounter some swelling for the first four to six weeks after the procedure; however, this is normal and will eventually subside to reveal your new shape. You may want to postpone any exercise or physical activity in the first week or so after the Brazilian butt lift until you feel up for it. You should consult with your plastic surgeon for the best practices during your recovery period. Frederic H.
