I recommend waiting 2 to 3 weeks to resume sexual activity after most procedures. You should be mindful of discomfort and be very careful to being with. After 6 weeks, you can usually return to normal sexual activity.

How long after Brazilian butt lift can I have sex?

After a BBL I do not want my patients to lie on their backs for 10-12 days. You can have sex before that if you wish, but do not use the missionary position. Use your imagination in avoiding lying or placing pressure on your buttocks for prolonged periods of time.

Your surgeon can let you know. On the safe side, I recommend that you refrain for at least a month if your recovery is normal.

A lot depends on the number of liposuction areas and amount removed. Typically I tell my patients to wait about a month for sex for most. Your best answer would come from your plastic surgeon.

Hi there-

To some extent, this is going to depend on which areas of your body were treated with liposuction, how much was performed, and your individual levels of discomfort...

In general, I would not want my patients engaging in any vigorous physical activity for at least 2 weeks. After that, it would mostly be a matter of your comfort, as long as you avoided positions that compromised your outcome.

Exercise after surgery within reason is good. So sex is not a problem when YOU feel up to it.  All my patients walk the day of surgery. But remember you shouldn't sit or lay on your butt for two weeks after surgery. Therefore be aware of your positioning.  I also ask my patients to refrain from getting their blood pressure elevated for the first week after any surgery.


Good luck with your surgery!!

Following any type of body contouring surgery theer is a fair amount of swelling, bruising and soreness during the first few weeeks. I usually advise my patients to refraing from sex for the first 2-3 weeks and then use cautious judgment in resuming sex.
