6 weeks after brazilian butt lift

It is very common 6 weeks after Brazilian butt lift to have some mild contour irregularities.  This will hopefully improve with time.  Wearing compression garments will help with contour.

Brazilian Buttlift and Lumpiness at 6 Weeks

At 6 weeks, you will still have a good deal of healing left and lumpiness is not uncommon.   You may not see your final result for 6 months.  With regard to your buttocks, I rarely see that much bruising after surgery and certainly not at 6 weeks.  Is that picture really from 6 weeks?  If it is, you have a great deal more healing ahead, and it is too early to make any determinations about buttock symmetry.  I do not have the benefit of preoperative photos, but you appear to look good at that point in the recovery process.  With regard to compression, I ask my patients to wear it until 6 weeks.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
