How To Take Care Of Your Brazilian Butt Lift in NJ

Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian butt lifts in NJ are becoming increasingly popular and are one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures today. Many patients who are dissatisfied with a flat or shapeless bottom, are turning to this technique for modifications using their own fat. In this two-part procedure, fat cells are harvested from problem areas of the body and transferred into the buttocks. A stunningly sculpted derriere can be the long-term result when NJ Brazilian butt lift patients follow the aftercare recommendations of their plastic surgeon.

How long is the recovery time?

Typically, butt lift patients can expect a recovery period of up to 3 weeks for most healing to take place. During this time, it’s highly recommended that they avoid movements such as sitting, squatting or stretching. The newly transferred fat cells need time to settle and establish a blood supply. It can take approximately 4 days for tiny new blood vessels to form around the transferred cells, and another 2-3 weeks to optimize the blood flow to the area. The transferred cells need to be able to combine with the existing tissues to grow stronger successfully.

Can I sit following my Brazilian Butt Lift in NJ?

Because sitting creates a significant amount of pressure on the surgical site, it poses the risk of damage to the transferred fat cells. This pressure reduces the blood flow, thus the circulation to the area, which is not ideal for successful transfer and recovery. We recommend that during the first 3 weeks postoperative, you avoid sitting. If it is simply unavoidable, your surgeon might suggest that you use a donut pillow and reposition frequently.

During this part of the recovery period, you can expect to rest and sleep on your side or front only. Short and slow walks are encouraged to promote circulation to the area. You’ll have to avoid driving for up to 6 weeks in most cases because the acceleration and braking required transfer considerable pressure to the buttocks.

You’ll have a lot going on under the surface of your skin; fat cells, blood vessels and tissue are working together to make your new bottom a permanent success. Failure to follow these recommendations can, unfortunately, lead to less impressive results.

How do I sleep following my Brazilian Butt Lift?

Since you won’t be able to sit for a considerable length of time, you’ll find that you spend plenty of time laying down. While it may not be the most comfortable way of sleeping, you’ll need to watch TV, read and relax all while laying on your front. We recommend you stock up on plenty of firm cushions to help you position.

When can I resume my exercise routine?

Your doctor will recommend walking as soon as you’re safely able to do so following your Brazilian butt lift to promote circulation to the surgical site. However, other strenuous types of exercise should be avoided until your plastic surgeon gives you the all-clear. In the immediate postoperative weeks, heavy lifting or anything requiring much exertion is discouraged.

The curvy results of your procedure can be long-lasting when you follow the postoperative recommendations of a double board-certified plastic and general surgeon, like Dr. Michael Gartner. We welcome you to schedule your consultation today.
