After Care of a Bbl Surgery?

What is all recommended for after care? What medication is proscribed? Can medication be taken over the counter for the pain?

Brazilian buttock lift recovery

Most patients will require Vicodin or codeine for the recovery from a fat transfer (Brazilian buttock lift). After a few days of the narcotics, most patients can transition to an over the counter pain reliever such as Tylenol. Patients are instructed to avoid sitting on their buttock for several weeks after surgery and to minimize their activity. A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will give you more detailed information.

After Care of a Bbl Surgery?

       Aftercare following the Brazilian buttlift will depend upon an individual surgeon's preferences and perhaps how aggressive the liposuction and large the amount of fat transferred per buttock.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
