24 Hour Road Trip after Brazilian Buttlift

      48 hours in a car two weeks after a Brazilian buttlift is NOT something I would recommend.  Frequent stops may help, but you are putting yourself at risk for possible blood clots and fat necrosis.  Is it absolutely mandatory to make the return trip at this time?  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
