When is sex okay after Brazilian Butt Lift?

Hi there-

I ask my patients to refrain from sexual activity for 4 weeks after surgery, in order to allow the fatty tissue grafted to "take", for swelling to subside, and for you to become comfortable.

Short Answer, 1 month.

Any type of strenuous activity including sexual intercourse should be avoided for at least one month following Brazilian butt lift surgery. Strenuous activities can elevate blood pressure and pulse rates and lead to hemo-dynamic changes.These changes can result in post-operative complications such as bleeding, fat cell death, and seroma formation.
In addition, physical exertion can cause stretching and pulling of the soft tissue, which can traumatize fresh surgical wounds that are still healing.This can damage freshly grafted fat cells and result in their loss.Under these circumstances, the incidence of wound healing complications would be expected to increase.

Conservatively speaking, about 4 weeks after surgery. In some instances starting earlier is acceptable but some positions can be uncomfortable and may apply to much pressure on the transferred fat.

Every surgeon will have a different recommendation.  This is mainly dependent on you, it depends on when you feel comfortable, and when the swelling has gone down.  In most instances, it is best to wait for about 4 weeks.

How long after Brazilian Butt Lift to have sex

The important part is not to put any pressure on the Butt.

If you can do that, you can have sex when you are comfortable. Find the position that avoids pressure or trauma to the buttock. And you are comfortable from the lipo areas. Good luck.

Definitely discuss this with your surgeon

How long you have to wait is best determined by your surgeon. We all do things a little differently and know what works best for our patients using our individual techniques.

With my patients I always recommend at least 3-4 weeks for this procedure. Sometimes longer is necessary depending on how much swelling and discomfort they are having.

With this procedure, you definitely don't want to do anything that can jeopardize the survival of the fat cells. So, "when" also depends on how creative or how adventurous/extreme you are.
