Recovery Time For The Brazilian Butt Lift
To answer your specific question, under normal circumstances, patients of mine are able to return to work about ten days after surgery. This ensures that the healing process can kickstart without any interruption.
Of course, every patient is different, so it is important to consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon with these questions. They know the intricacies of your body and your medical background and will be able to give you more specific information.

Recovery time after brazilian butt lift
Thank you for the question. The brazilian butt lift has become one of the most popular procedures in the last several years. It combines two operations in one: removal of fat from unwanted areas, and injection of the fat into the buttocks to create a fuller, rounder butt.
The procedure is done as an outpatient. Most patients need 2 weeks to recover. It will be a month before you can return to the gym.
Postoperatively, standing is ok, lying down is ok. Sitting may be a problem: when you sit, you put pressure on the buttocks and possibly compromise the fat that is injected.
Best to be as healthy as possible before and after surgery. No smoking, avoid aspirin and motrin.
Best to you.
