Is it true that after a BBL your butt is extremely hard? If so, how long does it last?

Swelling can provide for a hardened appearance after BBL.  There will be a great deal of softening within the first two to six weeks.

BBL

Right after a BBL, the buttocks are larger and firmer. This is often due to swelling. With time, the buttock softens up.

Thank you for your question.


 The area in the lower back will be still bruised and swollen and this will take 8-12 weeks to settle. Wear a garment.  have to give your body at least 12 weeks to start seeing results and final results can take 3-6 months depending the way your body heals.


Best of Luck!!

BBL

Thank you for your question.

Your buttocks will be firm after surgery due to swelling but will soften and become more natural feeling over time. Generally, most of the swelling has resolved by 6-8 weeks and you should start to see and feel your final results by then. Best of luck in your endeavors.
