Looking in the mirror at your body could make you wish for an improvement in the shape and size of your backside. Working out in the gym utilizing special exercises may get you close to your desired physique, but sometimes your hard work may fall short, leaving you feeling defeated. Your board-certified plastic surgeon on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Dr. Aviva Preminger of Preminger Plastic Surgery, recommends a Brazilian Butt Lift to smooth and plump your buttocks giving you the figure you love with clothes on or off. Therefore, Dr. Preminger is sharing what to expect when recovering from a Brazilian Butt Lift.

What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure that enhances the appearance of your buttocks. First, your professional New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Aviva Preminger, uses liposuction to remove excess fat from the buttocks area. Then, the extracted fat is purified and prepared for reinsertion. Finally, Dr. Preminger injects the fat into specially selected areas that provide your desired shape. Although some fat will struggle and not “take,” your plastic surgeon accounts for this when calculating the precise amount of fat needed to create your desired result.

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery

Recovery from any surgical procedure takes time and patience. However, the recovery after your Brazilian Butt Lift is typically faster than other procedures. Also, your Upper East Side of Manhattan plastic surgeon, Dr. Aviva Preminger, advises that with proper care, you could experience minimal discomfort that is easily managed.

Unfortunately, there are some restrictions on your activities to ensure proper healing, as outlined below

  • Daily Activities – Due to the nature of the Brazilian Butt Lift, you should be able to resume light activities following surgery. To return to work, you will need to gain clearance from Dr. Preminger that your procedural wounds are healing appropriately.
  • Sitting – Dr. Preminger will provide instructions following your procedure, but for a specified amount of time, you will not be able to sit or lie directly on your buttocks. Therefore, you may want to modify your sitting position by using a pillow under your thighs or purchase a donut cushion.
  • Results – After a few months, you will be able to see the results with no swelling. You may notice your clothes fit better, and the proportions of your body are closer to an hourglass figure. Your results from the Brazilian Butt Lift should be permanent. To maintain the results, following a healthy lifestyle is highly recommended.
