Hello. thanks for your question, if your surgeon give you the correct antinflamatories and painkillers, pain after BBl and liposuction should not be so bad. usually patients do not need to take strong painkillers, during the first 2 weeks are the most uncomfortable,usually patients can return to works 20 to 30 days after the procedure.

Most of the discomfort from a BBL surgery comes from the liposuction that is performed on the abdomen, bra line, flanks. This resolves over the course of 1-2 weeks. Most patients can return to work after two weeks. Sitting for prolonged periods of time, is avoided in the first 3-4 weeks after surgery.  There are specially designed pillows that allow people to sit, but the weight is placed under the thighs. After 4-6 weeks there are no restrictions on your activities.

BBL Recovery

Thank you for your question.The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure generally has an easy recovery, depending on the extent of the liposuction performed to harvest the fat. Recovery from liposuction and brazilian buttock is usually 1-2 weeks.Most patients are able to return to work one week after the procedure. It is best to resume strenuous activities such as exercise four to six weeks following surgery. Patients may experience bruising and tenderness in the areas where lipo was performed, with very little pain on the actual buttocks. Start off by finding a board certified surgeon who performs at least 100 of these procedures per year. Hope this helps,Dr. Newall
