It is interesting that Tourist Cosmetic surgery patients going outside the US,  seek the advice of United States Plastic Surgeons for surgery, and post surgery care!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your question. I advise my patients to stay off of their buttocks for two weeks after their BBL.  Discuss with your surgeon the benefits of your specific ring pillow for you.

All the best,

Thank you for your question. There are many board certified plastic surgeons in the U.S. as well. When considering plastic surgery, make sure you choose a board certified plastic surgeon or whichever board is recognized in that country. Be sure to do thorough research and look at before and after photos on the site, check credentials, read reviews, etc. For my patients, typical recovery time is 2 weeks, and for our out-of-town patients, we recommend staying in our recovery suites following surgery for a few days.
