Most patients need to wait anywhere between 2-3 weeks before venturing into prolonged sitting following gluteal augmentation with implants but can vary.  This will also be different if there were any additional procedures including fat grafting. You need to definitely see a plastic surgeon that is extremely comfortable with all forms of implants and grafting techniques to assure you achieve the look you want. Good Luck!

I usually have patients avoid sitting for about 3 weeks post-op.  Each surgeon may be a bit different. Best of luck.
