(Answer from Port City Plastic Surgery Physician’s Assistant April Buckingham, MPAS): Recovery from a Brazilian Butt Lift takes time, but our patients know: it’s worth it. Our BBL procedure, which uses liposuction and fat grafting together to sculpt and improve the shape of your buttocks, has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of any surgery we offer. When followed carefully, our post-operative care instructions can help you get the most out of your BBL. Here are some tips to help you heal and recover quickly and beautifully from your BBL with Port City Plastic Surgery in Charleston, SC: – You may return to work 10-14 days after the procedure, with general swelling improving within 6-8 weeks. If your job requires sitting, a special pillow can be used to take some of the pressure off of the buttocks. – Dr. Widenhouse will prescribe an oral antibiotic and pain medication to be taken after surgery. Use your medications as directed. – Wear your compression garment as directed. – Gentle massage to the areas that underwent liposuction will expedite healing and improve your contour. – Walk and stretch your legs. You need to move often to help decrease the risk of developing blood clots. – Drink plenty of fluids in the days after your procedure. Have you been working hard to create a curvy “rear view” with very little to show for it? Do you think you could benefit from a procedure that combines liposuction and a boost to the booty?
