When can I return home after a Brazilian buttlift in another country?

Returning Home Following a BBL in Another Country
Length of recovery, of course, depends upon the healing time of each individual and their prior health. Typically I recommend that my patients remain one to two weeks in the vicinity where surgery was performed before flying back home to another country. This past month I performed BBLs on two patients from ON; they recovered quickly and returned home a week after follow-up. Recommend that you schedule an on-line and in-office consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you and your health and answer your questions. All the best!

With Brazilian butt lift we transfer fat from one area of the body to the other. These fat cells are transferred in microinjections throughout multiple planes in the buttock tissue so that they can gain new blood supply and live in their new home, providing increased volume and shape to the buttocks.
Postoperatively, no specific position is indicated and we do not have any sitting restrictions. The pressure caused by sitting is not sufficient to affect viability of the fat cells and so the postsurgical position depends basically on comfort and any other operations that have been performed.
Patients use girdles for 6 weeks and start therapeutic lymphatic drainage and ultrasound massages in the liposuctioned areas, which continue daily for a total of 10 sessions. Patients canreturn to light activities almost immediately after surgery, normal activities 2 weeks after surgery, and vigorous exercise 4 weeks after surgery. We usually experience a slow steady improvement for 3 months or so after surgery.
