Sitting with brazillian butt lift
After Brazillian butt lift sitting is not restricted but I tell my patients to sit forward on the ischial tuberosity ( THE HARD BONE IN FRONT OF THE FAT PLACEMENT AREA) for a period of 2 weeks then no restriction

Sitting After Buttock Fat Grafting
My patients are allowed to sit normally following fat grafting to their buttocks (Brazilian But Lift). One of the reasons is that most of the pressure is actually placed on the bony prominence (ischial tuberosities) below where the majority of the fat is transferred to by lipoinjection. I have found no problem thus far in my patients. However, when an buttock implant is used that is a whole different story with significant restrictions early on. That is why so many of my patients opt for fat transfer rather than an implant.
Sitting after a brazilain butt lift
My normal post-operative protocol is no sitting for 7 days, after 7 days sitting is very controlled, you may sit only on a donut type pillow and pressure must be primarily applied to the thighs and mid gluteal are, not the are of the fat transfer.
