What can you expect after you get a brazilian butt lift?
If you’re in the market for a new booty, then you might want to consider a Brazilian butt lift. This surgery may not be for everyone, but if it’s what you are looking for then read on and you will learn some details about this procedure.
First, let’s learn a little about brazilian butt lifts (BBL) shall we?
BBLs are being discussed across media platforms and are a very popular across the world for increasing the volume of the butt area. This procedure doesn’t just fill in the buttocks with fat, it is more than that. It is really body contouring of the waist area and the hip area. The waist area is made smaller and the fat taken out of that area is injected on the sides of your hips giving you that curve in the right places. This procedure was popularized in Brazil, hence the name Brazilian butt lift.
Even though this procedure has the word “lift” in the name, it is not a cut-and-stitch surgery where an actual lift is done but rather through volumization that the lift happens. It is mainly done by liposuction and lipo injection. No big cuts are done with this surgery. This is usually a stitch less procedure and produces very little scarring if any at all. General anesthesia is used but it is an outpatient procedure.
You will be happy to know that this surgery is relatively pain free. Be mindful and careful when sitting or laying down of course because you will be experiencing some tenderness. Just remember this discomfort is temporary and you are going to love the results. It really gives you a nice, natural look and it lasts.
After the Brazilian Butt Lift
Now, let’s talk about what you do after the surgery. The most important thing to do after any procedure is drink lots of good for you fluids like water or Gatorade. “Good for you fluids” do not include sugary drinks or alcohol. You don’t want to have to go to the hospital, especially after a procedure because you are dehydrated so be conscious of that. Do your best to NOT sit on your butt for at least six weeks. This is important because those little fat cells have to start a blood supply. Pressure can slow this process way down so try to minimize compression of that area so those blood vessels can grow and feed the new fat cells. If you find yourself in a situation where you have to sit on your butt then at least make sure you alternate from one side to the other if possible. The more movement the better.
Now let’s talk about how you should sleep. It would be ideal to sleep on your stomach but if you need another option you can sleep on your back but make sure to put a pillow underneath your thighs and your back so there is little or no pressure on your booty.
Don’t be alarmed if you have swelling that makes its way down to the genital area because this is normal. You might also experience bruising and swelling down into the legs away from the actual liposuction sites. Go ahead and breathe because this is normal too. Don’t be worried if swelling lasts up to three to six months in certain areas because again, this is normal.
You will experience drainage from your access sites which means probably forgo sleeping with any nice, fancy sheets for a little while. This fluid may look either clear or slightly bloody. It usually subsides within 24 hours.
Something else you need to be prepared for is the anxiety you may experience while waiting for your body to heal. It may look worse before it gets better so don’t get discouraged. Trust in the process.
Please remember that your butt is going to be bigger and look different than what the end result will be.
When transferring fat it has to be overdone because it is expected that anywhere from twenty to fifty percent will fade away. So don’t expect to see your final results the day after surgery because it can take up to three months for that fat to subside leading to your new booty.
Good news! You will be able to take a shower 24 hours after your procedure. You are able to get everything wet but still avoid taking a bath and submerging yourself in water. This is because there are more bacteria in still water and again, the less pressure the better.
Last but not least, take all your post-surgery medications as prescribed. This is especially important for the antibiotics. Make sure to take them until you run out. No one wants to deal with an infection so always make smart and healthy decisions and enjoy your new booty!
