How soon can I sit after a Brazilian butt lift?
The Brazilian butt lift is a safe and effective technique that can improve the contour of your bottom and create a beautiful result. It is a combination of procedures that consists of aggressive liposuction of the abdomen hips and waist and lower back, separation and processing of the fat that has been collected, and strategic grafting to the gluteal area.
Patients who are undergoing this procedure should understand that there is a significant healing process. Patients will experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several weeks. During the first 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery, we inform the patients that it is essential to minimize any pressure to the area where the fat has been grafted. We always recommend that the patient's sleep on their sides or preferably on their stomach for the first 23 weeks after the surgery. We also ask that the patients used a circular air cushion when seated during this process. By taking care of the areas that have received the fat grafts, and using the compression garments that we provide to the patients, they can successfully achieve their desired results.

Sitting after Brazilian Butt Lift.
It has generally been said that you should avoid sitting on the Brazilian Butt lift injected area for two weeks after the surgery. The concern is that you may place undue pressure on the delicate grafts thereby killing them. However, the truth is that you sit on your ischial spines and not on your fat grafts which are more likely located on the upper buttock. It is probably more important to avoid placing direct pressure by laying down on your buttocks.
Should wait for at least 2 weeks after surgery

Prolonged sitting following brazilian buttock augmentation
I concur with most of my colleagues here. Immediately following your buttock augmentation procedure, I generally do not recommend prolonged sitting for approx. 2-3 weeks. Prolonged continuous pressure on an augmented buttock immediately after fat grafting could affect your results.
How soon can you sit after buttock augmentation
You should avoid sitting on your buttock for about two weeks after a fat transfer to the buttock (Brazilian buttock lift). This will help prevent direct pressure on the delicate fat cells, which could cause them to atrophy and shrink. You can modify your sitting by using pillows/cushions which are placed under the back of your thighs, to take the weight off of your buttock area. You should also sleep on your side or on your stomach for the first few weeks.
Positioning after this procedure is important if you want to have maximal results.
