Info I found from a bbl patient @petitmami on here and found useful: Band aid/silicone strips-for underarm incisions and drain incision on butt Maxi pads- for padding under garment (bring plenty) Chux- for padding under garment and bed at RH Dial soap- for washing Bottled water- for drinking /washing up ( you cannot take shower after surgery using DR water unless boiled) Vitamins/supplements-for recovery Feminine/ baby wipes- for quick wiping especially after #2 ( bring plenty) Small and XL wife beaters- for underneath/over garment while staying at RH Socks- wore over compression socks Stool softener- for 1st poop after surgery Water pills- for extreme swelling (consult with Dr. before taking) Epi Foam- for padding under garment to avoid bruising and burns Board- for better compression when garment gets loose Cotton- to stuff in belly button Hand sanitizer Dial hand soap Towel and washcloth- while at RH. Snacks- in between meals. Protein shake- great source of energy for after surgery

click the guides tab at the top of this forum and you'll see several articles- I think it's the 4 or 5th one down is http://www.realself.com/brazilian-butt-lift/guides gives you a list
I'll copy the list here: From body wash to alcohol pads here's everything you need to have before getting a BBL. So, you've made the decision to get a Brazilian butt lift. Now what? Once your surgery date is scheduled, there's still a lot to do in order to prepare. Whether you're traveling abroad, or getting the procedure locally, here's a list of must-haves, nice-to-haves (and a travel list!), approved by the BBL-ers*, to help you have the least stressful experience as possible. To-Do: Schedule Labs (if they're not done by surgeon) Schedule lymphatic massages for after the surgery (if your surgeon doesn't provide) Must-Haves: Female urinal (won't be able to sit after surgery) Bleach spray & baby wipes to clean yourself until you can shower again Anti-bacterial soap to clean your incisions Neosporin for drain sites after they're removed Alcohol pads to make the area sterile before taking your Heparin shots (to prevent blood clots) Q-Tips to clean around incision sites Gauze pads & medical tape to redress drain tubes Camisoles/tank-tops to wear under garment to avoid skin irritation Maxi dress or something loose fitting that's easy to slip on and off after surgery Easy slip-on shoes (so you don't have to bend over and tie them) Compression stockings to help prevent pulmonary embolism Compression Sleeve (only if you're getting arm Lipo) A big pair of panties in case that time of the month arrives Boppy pillow to protect your booty after surgery Faja or compression garment Epifoam or board/foam Arnica tablets to help with bruising and swelling Stool softener/laxatives Pre-op vitamins and post-op protein shakes to help repair body Nice-To-Haves (But Not Absolutely Necessary) Suction hooks to hold up drains while showering Sugar scrub (sugar and olive oil) for your pre-surgery shower Body scrubber to help reach an itch Hand lotion Firming lotion Empty bottle to put syringes in Bathrobe Socks to put over compression stockings Old towels/linens/shower curtain to keep from staining new linens Neck/body pillows Chux Pads Pills organizer Mederma Cocoa Butter (for scars) Chapstick/Vasaline, something to keep your lips from getting dry Band-aids to cover incisions A good camera to document your journey Folding chair to assist going to the bathroom (cut out the bottom of the chair and position it over the toilet) Yoga mat to place behind knees If You're Traveling, Don't Forget: Toothbrush/toothpaste Body wash and baby wipes Fill doctor prescriptions before leaving Protein powder shakes, fruits and veggies Reusable tote/bag to carry stuff in Ponytail holders A good camera to document your journey/any electronics you'll need Shaker cup if you're bringing protein shakes
