How To Correctly Sit and Sleep After Your Brazilian Butt Lift in New Jersey

Brazilian Butt Lift

Women in New Jersey choose Brazilian Butt Lift for its incredibly natural, lasting, and scarless results. Though it’s considered to be cosmetic surgery, because it redistributes a patient’s own body fat using liposuction and micro-fat injections, there are no visible signs of surgery. You can volumize and sculpt a shapely bottom while cinching your waist for an hourglass figure. At a glance, the Brazilian Butt Lift in New Jersey may seem easy, and you might not imagine a tough recovery. Though not described as significantly painful, restrictions required for safe, effective BBL healing can be demanding.

Positioning after fat-grafting

When you head home after your procedure, you’ll need plenty of rest in the first few days as general anesthetic can leave people feeling fatigued or dizzy. However, among the various restrictions and considerations you’ll have, the specifics of how to lay down and relax are essential.

Unlike other cosmetic procedures which typically affect the front of the body, a Brazilian Butt Lift in New Jersey requires patients to stay off their back and bottom. Fat stem cells which are injected via micro-droplets into the buttocks tissue must not have pressure applied, or blood flow restricted in any way. The effective grafting and thriving of fat cells mean treating the area delicately for several weeks.

Sitting after BBL

You’ll be advised to sleep on your front and avoid sitting for at least one month. After that time, you can begin sitting for short periods, preferably with a donut pillow or Boppy pillow to offload pressure from the bottom to the thighs.

Patients can also roll a thick towel to place under the knees and position another behind the back which helps decrease pressure on the butt while sitting. Driving is a different story because pressing on the gas or brake causes the body to push harder into the seat. We typically advise patients not to drive for 6 weeks.

Sleeping after BBL

Being unable to lay on your back may be equally frustrating, so we recommend that patients set up accommodating spaces in their home well ahead of time. You can prepare for resting and sleeping on your front with plenty of firm cushions and soft pillows arranged under you. Front-laying can eventually put a strain on your neck, especially if you’re socializing, reading or watching TV while laying down. You might need to move your furniture and prop yourself up considerably. Dr. Gartner suggests that patients get up and walk around regularly. Do gentle shoulder rolls and neck stretches. The survival of fat grafts can be significantly improved with diligent post-op positioning. We find that preparing patients to expect and accommodate these requirements make it easier to manage. Once you’re completely healed and cleared to return to life as usual, you’ll be glad for the short term sacrifice you made.
