Buttock Augmentation Recovery

All three forms of buttock augmentation are major surgery. Recovery will take time. Take pain medications as prescribed by your surgeon, and follow his or her instructions.

Recovery after Brazilian Butt Lift (Fat Injections)

For fat injections (Brazilian butt lift), you can usually sit the day after your procedure, but not for prolonged periods of time. You may feel swollen and uncomfortable. You will need to wear a compression garment for 1 to 2 weeks after your fat injections. This will help minimize swelling and help keep you comfortable. You can probably go back to work about a week after your fat grafting surgery and resume some exercise a week after that. You can probably resume all your normal activities by 4 to 6 weeks after Brazilian butt lift surgery.

Recovery after Butt Implants

For butt implants, you should avoid sitting for at least a week after your surgery. You will need to wear a compression garment to keep the implants in their proper place as they heal. Bandaging will be removed 2 to 3 days after surgery, after which you can shower and begin to move around a bit more normally. You will go home the same day as butt implant surgery, but will need someone to stay with you overnight and perhaps for a few days, since you will need assistance in getting in and out of bed and with household chores. You may be able to return to work 2 weeks after your surgery.

Recovery after Butt Lift Surgery

After a butt lift surgery, you will not be able to sit for a week. You may need someone to stay with you to help you in getting in and out of bed and with household chores. Your doctor will tell you when you will need to return to his or her office to have stitches removed. You may be able to return to work in 2 weeks, but this depends on how much sitting you do on your job.

After any butt enhancement procedure, call your surgeon if you have a temperature over 100.5° F. This could be a sign of an infection. If you experience severe pain or swelling, call your surgeon.
