Sitting After a BBL

Thank you for your question. This is different from one surgeon to another. Some want to wait a week, others allow sitting the next day. The location and quantity of the implanted fat are both factors to be taken into consideration. Follow your surgeons advice and stick to it. I hope this helps!

Every surgeon will have his or her own protocols for recovery.

Sitting after Brazilian Butt Lift

Thank you for your question. I always tell my patients to avoid sitting on the buttocks for at least 2 to 3 weeks. You want to prevent sitting because you can suffocate the fat cells that were just transferred. After the 2 to 3 weeks you are able to sit. Best of luck!

Always follow the instructions of your surgeon for the preoperative and post-operative instructions. It is very important for a successful surgery and outcome to follow the advise of your surgeon.
The internet is not reliable and has no moral, legal obligations to you to give you a good sound personalized advise.
If you do not follow your surgeons advise then you are fully responsible for any bad outcomes.
