Avoid sitting after a Brazilian Butt lift
The recovery process of a Brazilian Butt lift is very important to obtain atrophic and result. After the surgery, all of our patients are placed in a special compresses down which applies selective pressure to all areas of perceived lack of suction. This gown does not apply pressure to the areas that have received the new fat grafts. Patients are also encouraged not to sit for prolonged periods of time. Patients are also informed that when they do say they should use a round air cushion to minimize placing pressure or weight on the areas with the new fat graft. Patients typically avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time for 2 to 3 weeks after their surgery By following these recommendations patients can ensure to receive the optimal result.

How long before I can sit after Brazilian Butt lift?
Every surgeon has a different post-op regimen to protect the fat that has been transferred. During my consultations, I show patients how they should sit after surgery (with a pillow). I remove all restrictions at 6 weeks.
Don't sit directly on your buttocks after Brazilian Butt Lift!
Not sitting directly on your buttocks after a brazilian butt lift is very important. I recommend that my patients do not sit directly on their buttocks for about 3-4 weeks after the procedure not only to reduce their discomfort but more importantly not to reduce the amount of fat loss. Direct pressure to the fat in the early healing period can be harmful to the survival of the transferred fat. I allow my patients to rest on their side and they may sit for very brief periods of time for bathroom use. When you consult with your surgeon make sure that you discuss his or her instructions for sitting after a brazilian butt lift and follow them carefully.
I hope this is helpful.
