I had a Brazilian Butt lift 13 days ago along with other cosmetic surgery which forced me to sit down for very long periods of time. Now my butt looks uneven and not rounded.. How can i make round?

Butt uneven due to sitting too early after getting the Brazilian Butt Lift.

If it has only been 13 days since a Brazilian Butt Lift, you still have a lot of swelling.  I don't see any signs of liposuction though.  Where did the fat come from? 
If it has only been 13 days, your buttocks is going to shrink as the swelling goes away and whatever fat did not survive goes away.  In my experience, most of your swelling will be gone by about 3 months.  That is when you can expect to see what will be pretty darn close to your final results.  There is nothing much you can or should do right now to change your shape.  If you try manipulating your butt, you may damage the remaining fat cells.  Your shape will likely change as things settle due to the effect of gravity.

Wait 3-4 months before assessing results

I suggest you wait for about 3-4 months after your surgery before you assess your results. It does appear that your butt has flattened out a bit, but at this point you should wait before considering a revision.

Thank you for submitting your question. You are only 14 days out from your surgery so the swelling and bruising is asymmetrical.  It may take up to six months for the swelling to subside and the true result seen. Discuss your concerns with your surgeons and follow his recommendations.  Best wishes.

Brazilian butt lift and uneven results

From your photo seems like the bottom half your buttocks is flatter and has less fat then the top half. I have done corrections previous liposuction and fat injection in the past and corrections have worked well. This requires a repeat liposuction and fat injection into the appropriate areas.

You are very early after liposuction and at this point you can't tell what the final result will look like. It'll probably take you 3 months to get your final look. And you should wait 6 months or more before any further surgery. The longer you wait the less swelling you will have and as your surgeon will be able to get a better result. If you go back to early will be like liposuction in rock but if you go back to late to this result. So you're better off not to rush.

You might need a touch up BBL. Seek a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of these procedures, has great reviews and photos, and is an expert in this field.

Give this some time till all the swelling is gone. It looks that most of the fat transfer was put high in the buttocks and less at the center to make the butt look round.

If this continues the only way to repair is to transfer fat to the center of the buttocks. If you still have extra fat
