When can you have sex after a BBL?

My husband and I have an activity sex life, sometimes a little rough but I was wondering when can you have sex after a BBL? Soft or back to our normal routine?

I appreciate your question. I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients.  Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery. Best of luck!

Hello Charley you should consider waiting at least 3-4 weeks before returning to your normal routine you first want to make sure you are feeling completely confident health wise to resume with your routine  your body might still feel a little soreness how ever 3-4 weeks will be the appropriate wait time.Good luck!

Sexual activity after surgery

Thank you for your question.  At 3-4 weeks, I permit may patients to participate in low impact exercise, such as walking on a treadmill.  Between 4-6 weeks, activity restrictions are lifted, and I permit patients to return to the gym.  I encourage patients to translate these restrictions on general activity to the personal life, permitting sexual activity of similar exertion.  Best of luck with your surgery!

Thanks for your question! Typically between 2-3 weeks. I would ease into your "normal routine" you'll know if its too much and if your body needs more time to heal but typically 2-3 weeks you should be fine. Hope this helps!Dr. Newall

Brazilian butt lift and normal activity resumption

The general rule of thumb is to avoid rigorous activities and too much pressure on the buttocks (which could lead to low survival rate of grafts)) for at least three weeks.  From there, you'll get the idea.
Good luck and best wishes.
