How Long Does It Take Until People Can Sit Again After a Butt Lift?

I like to get the fat in my belly in my butt. Is that possible and how long will it take until I can sit again?

You can sit in the upright position one week after the procedure

It is possible to remove fat from your abdomen and placed it in the buttock region.  You cannot lay on you buttocks for two weeks after surgery, however, you may sit in the upright position one week after surgery.  This is because the autologous fat transfer (fat injections) is done in the upper region of the buttocks and not where you sit.
