Most patients return to work in 7 to 14 days based upon a number of factors.  Swelling will resolve a great deal over the first 6 weeks.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
