Brazilian butt lift , fat absorption
In my experience I see size of the buttocks decrease the 1st 2 to 3 weeks after that size stays consistent and the buttocks softens as it heals. You may keep all the size you have now.
When does most of the fat absorb after a BBL?
I have found that if there is fat absorption following the Brazilan Butt Lift it happens in the first 6 weeks. Beyond that period it is uncommon to lose any further fat. I inform my patients of this possibilyt prior to surgery so there will not be any surprises. I find that absorption occurs in about 35% of the patients. These patients can undergo a second fat grafting procedure after about 3 months.There is usually very little absorption after a second grafting.

Resorption of fat after Brazilian butt lift
In my experience most of the fat resorption occurs between weeks 3 and 6. However, it will continue to resorb over 6 months in small quantities. This is very technique dependent.
