Pain after Brazilian Buttlift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

    In general, after performing hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts, the average pain or discomfort period lasts from about 3 to 7 days.  This largely depends upon the amount of fat injected into each buttock.  In most patients, I liposuction the abdomen, flanks, and back for 5 liters and inject 1200 cc to 1500 cc per buttock.  The few days of discomfort are worth it according to the patients.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Brazilian buttlift Los Angeles, CA

Pain of Brazilian Butt Lift

I just finished talking to a pateint with a BBL yesterday, who reported that they were "sore" but walking around. They had taken 4 doses of pain pills. They stated that the buttock was the most painful area. The abdomen, hips, outer thighs and arms were the donor sites. 550 cc were injected into each buttock. The patient called, not for complaints of pain, but to know if she could shower. The soreness typically lasts for 3 months but does not prevent most individuals from returning to their jobs within 7-10 days.

This procedure because of the bruising leaves you'r body sore and tender is more like an ache instead of pain that is what normally the patients express as what they feel best of luck 

Pain after Brazilian Butt Lift is variable

While pain and discomfort following a Brazilian Butt Lift is to be expected, most patients cite only minor discomfort and are typically up and about 24-48 hours after their procedure feeling quite well.  But remember to keep in mind that pain tolerance varies from patient to patient.  Most commonly the pain experienced is related to the amount of liposuction performed and the areas treated, however, post-operative swelling can also contribute to this.  

Pain tolerance varies from patient to patient.

It’s not unusual for patients to have pain and swelling following Brazilian butt lift surgery. In most cases, this pain is related to the liposuction portion of the procedure. These problems are related to passage of the liposuction cannula through the subcutaneous tissue. Post-operative swelling can also contribute to post-operative discomfort and lead to other problems as well.
In many cases, the quality of the patient’s surgical experience is related to post-operative pain management.Pain tolerance varies from patient to patient with some describing it as minimal, while others describe it as severe. In the immediate post-operative period, patients are given narcotic pain relievers. They are rapidly switched to non-narcotic pain relievers as soon as possible.
Small amounts of pain and swelling may be present for several months following brazilian butt lift surgery.When prolonged severe pain and swelling are present, this might indicate the presence of a complication.Under these circumstances, contacting your plastic surgeon would be appropriate.

Not as painful as a TT. Seek a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of these procedures, has great reviews and photos, and is an expert in this field.

Cost for a BBL?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Cost factors vary significantly for a number of good reasons: Prices vary greatly because the surgery itself encompasses a wide range of techniques that can be performed to different extents. My recommendation is to first find the most qualified surgeons where you want the surgery performed that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery you trust, then compare prices between them. See the below link on suggestions on how to find the most qualified plastic surgeon for your procedure. General Factors that influence the price of plastic surgery include:

1. Location - Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay, an independent out- patient facility or a doctor’s office? Geographical location also has a significant influence. RealSelf has average charges for most areas of the USA.

2. Type of Anesthesia - local, IV sedation or General Anesthesia? Will a board certified anesthesiologist, nurse anesthetist, or an RN be used?            3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best and longest trained is most often a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery           4. Length and Complexity of Surgery - how difficult will your surgery be and how long it will take, etc. Will other complementary procedures also be also performed during the same surgery?

How painful is BBL?

Brazilian Butt Lift is a big operation. Most patients have a large amount of liposuction and I think this is the most painful part. I describe it to patients as though they have worked out super hard and are really sore. The pain is in the muscles below where the fat was harvested, so for instance the back is very sore. There is some pain from the grafts as well, but I feel the liposuction is more painful. That being said, most women tolerate this very well. The pain is rough for the first 24-48hrs and then gets better daily. It is always easier to handle pain when it's for something you desperately want. Best of luck to you!

Brazilian butt lift is the combination of liposuction and fat injection. An additional benefit of the Brazilian butt lift is that you not only get a shapelier buttock, but the area to liposuction is now much leaner, giving your profile a more sensuous look.

Patients may experience some pain or discomfort, bruising and swelling after the procedure. Most patients return to work two weeks after their buttock augmentation and are able to resume all normal activities within four weeks. Swelling typically dissipates by the sixth week.

When performed by an experienced surgeon using the proper techniques, buttock augmentation is a highly satisfying and permanent procedure that enhances the profile of the buttocks and surrounding areas for a younger, firmer, and curvier look.

Thank you for your question!  It all depends on your personal pain tolerance.  It's hard to tell how bad the pain will be, for some people it's mostly just uncomfortable.  Best of luck!
