BBL Question - faja and sitting.

Whats the difference between the tight compression the faja puts on our butt and sitting on it? Seems like they would both compromise fat cells.

Hello, thanks for your interesting question. The "faja" helps mostly to keep the new fat into the desired shape, when you sit the fat will move and will flat the results, and would more likely kill the fat cells, it is not the same the shaping effect of the girdle than all of your weight sitting on your buttocks. I hope this helps.

Take care

I do not recommend a garment or faja that is extremely tight over the buttocks.  It is always best to ask these questions of your chosen surgeon as recommendations may be different.
