So you’ve had your Brazilian butt lift and now you’re ready to head to the club and flaunt your new booty on the dance floor. But before you get too jiggy with it, you might want to take a look at these tips for a smooth BBL recovery.
Keep the Rump-Shaking to a Minimum
As tempting as it may be to get right back to dancing after your BBL, you need to make sure you give your body enough time to rest and heal first. For the first 4 to 6 weeks after your procedure, avoid strenuous activity—including heavy grinding on the dance floor.
Wear Your Compression Garment
Your cosmetic surgeon will likely send you home with a compression garment to wear for several weeks after your procedure. This isn’t to start a new fashion statement—it has some real benefits to help you recover, including reduced swelling and better BBL results, so make sure you wear it as instructed.
Depending on your line of work, you may be able to get back to your normal schedule within two weeks of getting a BBL.
No Butts about It
Sitting directly on your butt for long periods of time in the first 6 to 8 weeks after your Brazilian butt lift could hamper your results. If you absolutely have to sit, get a donut pillow or other similar device to help minimize the pressure on your backside. You should also try to sleep on your stomach or side until you’ve fully recovered from your BBL.
