Hard Areas After Liposuction and Brazilian Butt Lift

I had full liposuction of the stomach and back and also had a brazilian butt lift. I am 10 days post surgery but my stomach and back feel very hard and the area where the fat was injected into my buttocks is very hard as well. I have read that hardness after liposuction may be normal but is the hardness in the buttocks normal? If so, how long will it take to soften up?

I have not really noticed any significant difference in the way my body looks after the surgery but my doctor says that that is because I am still swollen.

Is hardness of the area after liposuction and brazilian butt lift normal and for how long?
Name not provided

At this point I do not recommend my doctor because I have not noticed any results may be after the swelling subsides I will feel differently.

Was this review helpful?

There is no question that areas of liposuction can be hard for months after the procedure. Your buttocks will also be firm after fat grafting, and may be "very firm" if a large volume of fat is injected into it. But, it usually softens over the first month or two. My patients all see their final result by about 2-3 months. If it is done right, and depending on how much fat was removed and injected, you should see a dramatic change in your size and shape as soon as the procedure is completed. From that point on, up till about 2-3 months, it just gets better and better.

I was looking into getting a BBL in MD also, but I just couldn't afford the $13,000 asking price. I hear there's a really good doctor in FL that charges roughly half of that. I've also seen the FL doctor's tummy tucks so I'm definitely saving up. I wanna get both procedures done (not at the same time) right the first time.
