Why Sitting Should be Avoided After Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

Featured Image

Have you recently undergone Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery, and are wondering if it's safe to sit down? Recovery from any surgery takes time, and a Brazilian butt lift is no different. In most situations, you should avoid sitting directly on your butt or putting any direct pressure on the region for at least three weeks. Usually, you’ll be told to use soft pillows for cushioning when sitting for at least two weeks following the surgery. The cushions will help reduce the weight on your butt and more evenly distribute the pressure. Most patients can sit normally after about four weeks following surgery.

If you are considering undergoing a Brazilian butt lift, we encourage you to contact double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andre Marshall. The popularity of the BBL has skyrocketed in recent years for both men and women who are seeking a more curvaceous backside. The surgery at Andre Marshall Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA gives patients a shapelier butt without the need for implants. Dr. Marshall uses a fat transfer to the buttocks to create natural fullness. The fat transfer involves liposuction to remove unwanted fat from a troubled area of the body. The fat is then transferred to the buttocks to create a voluptuous rear.

Is everyone a suitable candidate for a Brazilian butt lift?

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for a BBL. Dr. Marshall will need to meet with you at his office in Beverly Hills, CA to determine if you have sufficient fat to complete the fat transfer. If you don’t have enough fat and low body weight, then there might not be enough fat to extract, purify and reimplant in your rear end.

Dr. Marshall will also ensure your skin has enough laxity for the procedure. Patients with healthy skin laxity can achieve acceptable results. If your skin is sagging, a BBL will help lift the skin and smooth it. However, if your skin sagging is extreme, a surgical butt lift might provide better results.

If you are at a healthy body weight with enough fat for removal, then a Brazilian butt lift using your own fat is ideal. This is especially true if you want to avoid implant surgery on your rear end.

How is a BBL performed?

If you opt to undergo a Brazilian butt lift in Beverly Hills, CA, it will be carried out as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. The entire surgery takes about 2 – 3 hours. Dr. Marshall will use liposuction to take fat from an unwanted area on your body, such as the abdomen, back, bra roll, flank, or pubic area. He will then cleanse the fat of excess fluid and blood before preparing it for injection into your buttocks.

The injection process is carried out in layers, and massage is used to evenly distribute the fat throughout the area. Dr. Marshall will continue the injection procedure until he gains the desired size and shape.

After undergoing the BBL, you’ll be sent home, where you can recover at your leisure. You might experience some bruising and pain in the treatment location. You'll want to avoid placing excessive weight on your buttocks for six weeks. As each week passes, the swelling in your rear end will start to shrink. It takes about three months to attain the buttocks you seek.
