BBL Fat Absorption
While lying in bed should have minimal effect on the viability of freshly transferred fat into the buttocks, it is still not as preferable as being generally up and about. But sitting directly on the fat in the buttocks for any length of time (rather than sitting moreso on the backs of the legs) will tend to increase absorption and should be avoided, especially within the first few days after having the procedure, which is the most critical time for the fat to "take".

Yes, it is indeed possible that you damaged your results. It does matter about pressure on the buttocks after BBL. From the moment the BBL is completed, I advise my patients to avoid any type of pressure on the buttocks for a minimum of 6 weeks. Immediately after the procedure, all my patients remain in the prone position - in recovery and even on the ride home. I provide a special roll used under the thigh, not the buttocks, for sitting. I do not advocate the use of donut rolls as they place pressure on the buttocks. Share your concerns with your plastic surgeon. The only thing for you to do now is to wait it out and see how you like your end result and revise as necessary. Best of luck.
