In general you should follow the instructions of your plastic surgeon.

In my practice, if your surgery is soon, then you should not be on a diet. You will need all the energy to heal. A multivitamin is ok, no asprin or anti inflamatory drugs. No health supplements.

Start on stool softners

Prior to surgery start showering with surgical soap, including the morning of surgery.

Remove all piercings

Prepare the house and the room where you will be recovering, recliner is good, towles, you will drain a lot for 24-48 hours.

Arrange to have help for 24-48 hours. An adult should be with you. Move around the house, Take your medicines including the blood thinners when prescribed.

Get 2 doughnuts to sit on, so there is no pressure on the buttock where the fat graft is.

Have lots of gaterade and liquids after the surgery

Check with your surgeon and follow his/her instructions for before the surgery and after the surgery.

The Brazilian butt lift is beautiful and effective way to contour your torso, create a flat tummy, a small waist, sculpted back, full hips, and round new bottom. In our practice here Miami we carefully evaluate each patient to give them specific recommendations as to how they can best pair for their surgery.

Your best bet is to ensure that you are working with the Dr. is certified by the American board of plastic surgery and who has extensive experience in not only the Brazilian butt lift but liposuction, fat grafting, body contouring, and liposelection.

Proper preparation for surgery is key to healing well, mazimizing your results and minimizing complications. First and foremost is not smoking. Smoking increases your risk of complications and decreases the take of the injected fat. As far as diet, a normal healthy diet with a multi vitamin and mineral supplement is sufficient. Be sure to disclose all your medications and supplements to your doctor and stop taking aspirin at least 10 days before surgery.

Assuming you are in the hands of a responsible and experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with a lot of experience performing this procedure, you are about to significantly improve your shape.

With regard to preoperative (and for that matter, postoperative) advice, please understand that we do not all do things the same way, and plastic surgeons tend to be very particular about their patient's postoperative regimens. There is no doubt in my mind that your surgeon would be very sad and frustrated to know that you were asking questions that might affect your safety and outcome from anyone but his office. And considering that you and your surgeon are going to be the ones responsible for whatever outcome is achieved, it really isn't fair to them (or yourself) to ask these questions of anyone not involved in your care.

Please call your surgeon's office- they'll know what works best for their patients.

I have to agree 100% with Dr Soto! 
If your surgeon is experienced with this procedure, then this is a question for them.  They (and you)  are responsible for doing this safely and getting the best result for you that is possible.  This procedure is technically precise to obtain an excellent result.  Your surgeon should have specific instructions for you for both before as well as after surgery.  Talk with your surgeon.  That is part of what you are paying them for.
Good Luck

Thank you for your question. With most cosmetic surgery, it is recommended that you stop smoking six weeks before surgery. It is particularly important to increase the chances of survival of the fat grafts. Certain medications that increase the risk of bleeding such as Aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and some vitamins/homeopathic regimens should be discontinued prior to the surgery. Best of luck!

Preparing for a Brazilian Butt Lift

Preparing for a Brazilian butt lift is just like any other plastic surgery procedure.  You should be in good health and a stable weight.  Yes, during the procedure, liposuction is performed to "harvest" the fat.  The fat is then concentrated and injected into your buttocks.  


Good luck.
