Eyes swollen after bbl?

I had a BBL 2 days ago and woke up this morning with eyes extremely swollen. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do for it?

When a brazilian butt lift is performed fluid is injected to harvest the fat, and it is not uncommon to be swollen. This should resolve on its own. If it persists, see your surgeon to make sure there is no other issue.

Swollen eyes after a brazilian butt lift is very common. This the result of the amount of tumescent fluid injected prior to liposuction. It will get better with time.
