Hi Megrapp, the recovery for a BBL is usually 2 wks. The first couple of days can be tough. Patients are weak and complain of headaches and fatigue. I prescribe all of my liposuction patients iron tablets to be taken 3 times a day which helps with the possible anemia that can result from having a BBL. All of my patients use a boppy pillow to sit on during the first month. The actual surgery can take anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on how many areas of liposuction are done. Its takes about a month before you can show off your new body.

BBL Recovery Time
Hello, and thank you for your question. While recovery time can differ slightly depending on the individual, recovery time for a Brazilian butt lift is usually about 1-2 weeks. To get an exact recovery timeline for your individual procedure, consult with your board-certified plastic surgeon.
BBL and Returning to Work
Most patients return to work 5-7 days following BBL. You should review the job duties with your physician.
What is the recovery time on a Brazilian butt lift?
Recovery time before return to sedentary work is very individual, but ranges from about 4 days to 2 weeks. I allow patients to resume exercise at 4 to 6 weeks.

Good question! The recovery time is usually 2 weeks after a BBL. You can resume strenuous activities like exercise 6 weeks after surgery. I hope this helps.

Hi... thank you for the question.... generally you can start working 7-10 days after your surgery.. depending on what is your job... start sitting 15 days after
Thank you for your question. The BBL removes fat from areas of your body such as your sides, back, and abdomen and transfers it to your buttocks. It tell my patients that at five days they can return to work, two weeks they can sit on the buttocks, 6 weeks they can resume exercise, and full healing should be around three months.
All the best,
