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.

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.
