Your Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Guide

Any type of liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift or not, is a surgery that requires anesthesia. There is also a recovery period. However, it’s a surprisingly minor surgery compared to many others, and the Newport Beach experts at John Park MD Plastic Surgery prioritize patient safety and comfort.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery

The incisions are very small (usually less than half an inch), which means downtime and recovery is minimal. Scarring from liposuction is rare, and if it does occur the scars are very small and unnoticeable. If you are prone to keloid scars, which is common in those with darker skin, it’s very important to follow post-liposuction care guidelines to minimize scarring. Laser skin therapy can also help with all types of scarring.

As with all surgeries, there is a risk of scarring and it is recommended that patient wear a compression garment and avoid putting pressure on their buttocks for several weeks post-surgery to ensure proper healing and shape. How many weeks you need to avoid sitting and laying on your derriere depends on several factors including body type, amount of fat injected, and your general propensity for healing. Your doctor will tell you how many weeks or days to expect to be in “recovery period” prior to your Brazilian Butt Lift.

Brazilian Butt Lift Compression Garments and Recovery

Both the compression garment and avoiding pressure on your shapely new backside help the area to heal and to achieve the best possible shape. You will have regular check-ins with the team at John Park MD Plastic Surgery throughout your recovery period. Recovering from liposuction may require “liposuction massages” in order to soothe, smooth, and shape the area. Liposuction can cause bruising, which can be uncomfortable but disappears quickly.

Preparing for a Brazilian Butt Lift means taking measures to avoid your backside as much as possible. Practicing sleeping on your side or stomach and finding different ways of “sitting” prior to surgery are both good ideas. Ideally, patients will have a loved one staying with them and helping them to adjust to the recovery period for at least the first few days post-surgery.

Brazilian Butt Lift Consultation with Dr. John Park

Surgery recovery can always be a little challenging, but Brazilian Butt Lifts can last for several years. Patients may not see full results until six months, when the newly injected fat has “settled.” However, since it’s your own fat, it can lead to nearly permanent results.
