Showering after Brazilian Butt Lift

I usually recommend my patients shower 48 hours post op.  I would clear this with your surgeon but I would see no reason not to.

Brazilian Buttlift and No Shower for 7 Days

   I allow my patients to shower as the drainage you will have from the procedure may be significant.  However, there are arguments to anything, and I would follow the advice of your plastic surgeon.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

I usually recommend waiting 48 hours after surgery to shower.  This give the incisions time to seal.  Every surgeon has a different protocol for different reasons.  You should follow your surgeon's recommendations.

Thank you for your questions. In our Atlanta office, we achieve desired Brazilan butt lift (BBL) results using our specialized technique via small incisions without drains. We normally advise patients to wait 24 hours after their surgery to shower. We advise patients to not take Bath or Swim for at least 2 weeks after their surgery, to allow enough time for the incisions to heal.  Our advice would be to discuss this with your Plastic Surgeon and determine why they do not want you to shower for 7 days.
