About 2-3 months. Please follow up with your doctor as these issues require the attention of a plastic surgeon.

Swelling

On average, the vast majority of our patients swelling (80-90%) has resolved by 6 weeks following their Brazilian. You probably will not be able to quantitatively determine the differences between 6 - 12 weeks following the surgery, but there is probably a small amount of swelling that may take 3 months to completely resolve.

Swelling after Brazilian Butt Lift

In general, I inform my patients that the significant majority of the soft tissue swelling associated with the Brazilian Butt Lift will be resolved by 6-8 weeks after surgery.  However, your results may vary depending on your activity levels, general health, compliance with compression, and other factors.
