After BBL surgery we want to maximize the flow of oxygen to the grafted areas with a period of no compression for 2-3 weeks. Because of this we do recommend that you do your best to sleep on your stomach for this time period but if you must it is OK to spend minimal time on your sides, being sure to alternate, in order to keep the blood flow maximized and the fat cells that have been transferred alive and well.Be sure to follow your surgeons instructions he gave you during your consultations before and after the surgery.Best wishes.
Can I sleep on my side after BBL?
