Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery, or BBL, is a popular plastic surgery procedure that involves transferring fat from different areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, to the buttocks to create a more voluminous silhouette. If you’re interested in getting BBL surgery, there are several important things to know to ensure a safe recovery. First, patients should not place any weight on the surgical site for at least two weeks. To stay comfortable throughout this process, there are many cushions available for every position, such as sitting and sleeping. Also, to make sure that all transferred fat cells remain in the correct shape, compression garments must be worn from 6 weeks to several months to achieve smooth, natural-looking results. Your plastic surgeon will recommend the best timeframe for your specific needs. Next, diet is incredibly important during BBL recovery. Swelling is common during this time due to the extra fluid in your body. Hydration is key as well as staying away from foods and drinks with high sugar or salt content.
