·       Brazilian butt lift (BBL) has become one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures due to its benefits of full-body transformation.

·       Brazilian butt lift uses your own body fat to offer a youthful contour to your butt. However, the results look and feel entirely natural.

·       Recovery from a Brazilian butt lift is hassle-free if you genuinely follow the post-op instructions provided by your plastic surgeon.

·       Dr. Karishma Kagodu will work with you to determine a customized treatment plan based on your problem status, anatomy, and desired goal.

Dr. Karishma Kagodu, MS, M CH., a board-certified plastic surgeon and head of Dr. Karishma Aesthetics, also contributing her services to Kinder women's hospital, Whitefield, Bangalore noted that "weight change can affect your results after BBL surgery, as weight gain becomes prominent first at your rear end. However, maintaining a stable weight and following a healthy lifestyle, diet, and exercise is essential post-BBL to enjoy a long-lasting result."

For Dr. Karishma and countless other board-certified plastic surgeons around the country, the rising popularity of BBL surgery is because it offers the dual benefits of the contouring effect. So plastic surgeons get calls all the time from figure-conscious patients wondering about butt surgery and how to have a hassle-free recovery process.

Thus, it is essential to share the recovery tips that help every BBL patient to understand the procedure and post-op instructions more precisely.

1.    Avoid sitting down.

Sitting is an instinctive response when we feel tired, and we sit several times a day, which is a simple thing for our daily life. But, sitting directly on your buttock after Brazilian butt lift surgery should be restricted for a few weeks to avoid the chances of compromised healing. During your procedure, Dr. Karishma transplants a precise amount of purified fat cells into your buttocks. These newly transplanted cells require special care while they settle, heal, and begin to be accepted by your body. During the healing period, your body will reabsorb around 30-40% of the fat tissue, which is entirely normal and counted as a recovery response after a BBL surgery. However, sitting directly on your butt can put unwanted pressure on your transplanted fat cells, resulting in restricted blood flow, delayed healing, and cause unwanted indentations.

How to sit if you must:

ü Sit backward on your chair. Turn the chair around and sit, leaving your buttocks off the seat; place your arms on the chair back and either leg on the sides of the chair.

ü Stand up between sitting periods to stimulate blood flow.

ü Lie on your stomach or side while sleeping and while watching TV or reading.

ü Always sit on a doughnut-shaped cushion during the critical 2–6-week post-BBL.

ü Slightly squat (rather than sit) when using the bathroom.

2.    Wear your compression garments.

Post-BBL surgery, wearing compression garments for a few weeks during your recovery period is mandatory to avoid unwanted swelling and contour irregularities. Compression garments help achieve a smooth healing process, prevent any swelling, and make sure you see ideal contour results. A pressure garment is generally recommended for between three and six weeks. But some patients may require to continue wearing the pressure garment for up to eight weeks. You must wear it around the clock for the first two to three weeks except at shower time. After this initial healing period, you are instructed to wear a compression garment for 12 hours a day.

3.    Fat survival.

The fat survival rate in the buttocks after BBL surgery is not always 100% because your body will reabsorb some fat tissue as a part of the healing response. Even though the reabsorption of 30-40% of fat is okay and does not affect the results; however, you are required to follow all the post-op instructions provided by your plastic surgeon to enjoy the long-lasting effect of your Brazilian butt lift surgery. Moreover, the survival of transferred fat depends on a couple of factors, such as the techniques used by the surgeon while removing fat and a patient's recovery progress. Usually, 50-80% of fat gets survive post-BBL surgery. Therefore, the best way to accelerate the fat survival rate post-Brazilian butt lift is to follow all the recovery instructions given by your plastic surgeon, including a healthy diet and lifestyle.

4.    Lymphatic massage.

Board-certified plastic surgeons recommend lymphatic massage post-Brazilian butt lift surgery to promote a healing response. Massage accelerates blood flow in a specific area which helps achieve a smoother recovery process. Moreover, massaging also improves the appearance of your skin, as the massaging is performed on the liposuction areas to contribute to a quicker recovery.

Recovery post-BBL surgery is demanding and requires special attention every step and day, but the results are excellent with a contoured rear-end profile.
